Antibiotic "consumption" in France

"Dans 662 ES ayant participé trois années consécutives, la consommation globale totale, en DDJ/1 000 JH, était de 366 en 2008,378 en 2009 et 389 en 2010.
Les consommations de ceftriaxone et de carbapénèmes avaient progressé de 28% et 31% respectivement.
Ainsi, malgré les programmes nationaux, les consommations d'antibiotiques ne diminuent pas dans les établissements de santé.
La progression de la consommation des carbapénèmes, observée aussi dans d'autres pays européens, illustre la nécessité de maîtriser l'utilisation de ces antibiotiques de dernier recours.
Dans ce contexte, la surveillance ATB-Raisin permet de suivre l'impact des recommandations de restriction de l'utilisation d'antibiotiques.
Pour les ES, la participation au réseau facilite les partages d'expériences concourant au meilleur usage des antibiotiques."
As everyone could judge the last sentence is an amazing wording... Yes the situation is not improved by the so called national public policies and recos but let us tell you that sharing experiences between institutions is a good point.

The price for an over sized welfare state is jobless

In France the welfare state is over sized, all the incentives play in synergy to maintain low skilled workers outside job market.
The rocketing jobless rate is the mirror of the welfare state expansion.
But as those subsidies are partly financed by debt and borrowed on markets taxes are very high and the economy is frozen.
This equilibrium is possible because of a very large amount of liquidity in the public debt market and very low interest rates.
