For some reason, I just loved it. There was a sense of optimism and joy in the 1920s.
What is happening is a little like what happened in the 1920s, the period where demand growth was quite strong but supply growth was even faster. You had new technology then, it was electric power. Now its computing power.
A capitalist economy goes through cycles, and 2000 was the peak in the latest cycle, which had lots of similarities to the 1960s and the 1920s. Now we're somewhere in this sort of troublesome period like the 1970s.
Just as outlawing alcohol did not work in the 1920s, current attempts to prohibit online gambling will not work, either.

I think it would be great if you one day just went to sleep and woke up and it was 1920s Paris. That would be excellent, ... But I don't know, because there could be just dirt and worms.

For the moment there is absolutely no sign of a turnaround. The impact of the global slowdown on the French economy will continue to be felt in 2002.
