France vs United States January 13, 2011

There is an Ocean between Europe and America. So there is between France and the United States.
I’ve been working hard to make this bridge between the two a reality and facilitate business for entrepreneurs and startups. United States made my live very easier recently, and I’ll be pleased to announce shortly some news that will make me more in position to making life easier for them… from both side.

Whatever, I have a lot of fun to notice major differences between uses and tradition from both countries. And well, sometimes not.

John gave us a first example on this crazy movie with McDonald’s burgers. Let’s see which others do exist… Do you know some?!

As examples… In France, we put the French flags on public buildings. Here, American flags are proudly facing the wind on private ones.

Another example: regarding wines, the only thing that matter for American people is the grape… Cabernet, Sauvignon, Pinot blablabla. French mostly care about the winery, or what we call the “appelation”.

Some other differences:

In the US, it’s not a problem to be rich, and you can show it… in France?

In the US, you can fail, it’s part of the business. In France?

In the US, you experience, even after you’re 50 or more, is a great asset. In France?

I’ll keep you posted on some more soon.

The other big difference between France and the US is that American people are really proud of their country. They now what patriotism is!
French people love their country as well of course, but it’s only chauvinism. But I think that it’s the same in all European countries.

Anyway I love my country – even if it’s from abroad!
