Little Ole Indonesia has a population of around 270 million, lots of natural resources and, generally speaking, a "can do" attitude.
France, on the other hand, has a declining population (minus immigration), running out of natural resources (hence the proliferation of nuclear plants and natural gas deals with Russia) and a population that strikes when it is raise that they may need to work a whole 36 hours a week..........

The McCrone report is a document on the Scottish economy written and researched in 1974 on behalf of the British Government. It was composed by Professor Gavin McCrone employed at the Scottish Office. The document gave a highly favourable projection for the economy of an independent Scotland with a "chronic surplus to a quite embarrassing degree and its currency would become the hardest in Europe". This led successive iterations of the British government to classify the McCrone report as "secret".
