France's Greedy Elite

Release date : 16/01/2020
After the success of The State’s Untouchables, investigative journalist Vincent Jauvert lifts the veil on the wealth of France’s elite under Macron’s presidency.
Never before in the history of France’s Fifth Republic has the country’s elite been so rich and obsessed with money. Never before have so many ministers been multimillionaires and never before have so many senior officials been paid top dollar to leave the private sector. Never before have so many... Never before in the history of France’s Fifth Republic has the country’s elite been so rich and obsessed with money. Never before have so many ministers been multimillionaires and never before have so many senior officials been paid top dollar to leave the private sector. Never before have so many political leaders, and not just the minor ones, become lobbyists or corporate lawyers…

One of Macron’s ministers has over two million euros stashed in Luxembourg, another earns over a million a year as part of a large private group, and a third is drawing 60,000 euros a month in the public sector. A financial auditor in charge of regulating the banks in Bercy under Macron was let go for top dollar to become a commercial banker. The State Councillor in charge of the Internet was recruited by a giant in the sector, while another in charge of tax infringement became a tax attorney for a large British practice… How did this happen? Why have things gotten worse under Macron?

After a year of investigation and over thirty unreleased testimonies, France’s Greedy Elite reveals the lifestyle of an elite so greedy it has taken power in Emmanuel Macron’s wake, with its race for money and behind-the-scenes schemes to hide its true sources of revenue and conflicts of interest.
