Bonjour ŕ l’euro! An agenda-setting study of attitudes towards the new currency in France

The introduction of the euro is a unique event. For the first time in modern history
12 countries agreed on using the same currency. The public concerns regarding the euro
include a variety of topics ranging from prices of goods to national identity. Some
concerns are common to all Eurozone countries; some differ from country to country and
also within the population of one country. Researching differences in opinion between
countries, Pepermans, a Dutch scholar, found that attitudes towards the euro are linked to
social psychological constructs: 1. national economic pride and satisfaction, 2. self-
confident open-mindedness, 3. progressive non-nationalism, revealing 5 country regions
and 2 countries that remain unclustered (Great Britain and Ireland). His analysis indicated
that positive attitudes toward the euro associate predominantly with cultures that are
strongly oriented towards central control institutions.

Luna-Arocas et al. revealed in their
study that in Spain and Portugal support for the euro comes more from the European
identity than from the economic expectations. They found four within-population
clusters: “indifferent”, “pro-euro informed”, “pro-euro uninformed”, and “against the
euro”.

Previous research has shown that public opinion differs on the topic of the euro
within and between peoples. This paper focuses on the role of Le Monde - “the leading
