In 2011, a French business school asked me a one day class to explain to international students what's specific about the French hitech industries. Why are we behind in this area while France is a WW leader in aerospace, nuclear or transport industries.
I look at the history of the country to explain why France is efficient at certain things and fails at other.
This file is the corresponding document. The class was given only once :-(
I will update the file at one point.
