Macron Seeks to Step Up France’s Inflation Fight

PARIS – The Government of the French President Emmanuel Macron has proposed 20 billion euros ($20.31 billion) of new measures aimed at mitigating the impact of inflation on French budgets.

The measures, which are part of a new bill due to go to parliament on Thursday, include checks for low-income households to buy groceries, an increase in pensions and a boost in social benefits. They come as France and other Western governments come under intense political pressure to counter global inflationary forces, from supply chain disruptions to the energy crisis caused by Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.
