What if to help young people, students or job seekers, the government put its hand in the wallet?
The Minister of the Economy is studying the hypothesis.
Guest of "France Culture" this Wednesday, Bruno Le Maire considers "interesting" the proposal of the delegate general of La République en Marche (LREM) Stanislas Guerini to create a zero rate loan of € 10,000 for 18-25 year olds.
"I find it an interesting idea and that all the ideas that will allow young students, who today are in an extremely difficult situation to be told, that we are providing them with solutions, that we are providing them with proposals, deserve to be 'to be studied,' the minister reacted on Wednesday.
The day before, Stanislas Guérini proposed the creation of a "youth capital" to help young people "get started in life", in a particularly harsh context for this generation.
These loans would be repaid "only if we have the ability to repay them, because we have found a job, a job, which allows you to repay them," said Bruno Le Maire on Wednesday.

This sum of € 10,000 would be accessible without any conditions of use and “repayable over a very long period, 30 years”, and this “only if a certain level of income is reached, which I propose to set at € 1,800. gross per month ”, explains Stanislas Guérini in an interview with“ Le Monde ”.
The measure would be "not only an anti-crisis shield, but a real tool of emancipation", which would be intended to be perpetuated.
