I might add that in France, Lyon's doing just as good as anyone could outside Paris in this country that's backward to some respects. If decentralization was eventually taken to a serious level in France, you'd see quite a couple of French metro areas emerge to compete with the capital on the international stage. Lyon would definitely be the most aggressive of them as shown by that only figure of GDP per capita. Their aggressiveness must even be remarkable in that rather anti-business environment, in a country where you've got to be enduring to do business, where people to help you in doing so are too few, and those to nastily deter you from it too many, especially in the public bureaucracy. We'll have to repeat that over and over, till the ugly is defeated.
