The Rich Of France Are Leaving... For Belgium

I talked about the "Hollande Effect" in a previous article. One of the biggest fears of rich people is the 75% tax on their income once Hollande became president. So what happened the day Hollande became president? A record of 1500 applicants came to Belgium to store their wealth exactly after the French election day, as reported by Dekeyser & Associés. One of those super rich was Gérard Mulliez, boss of Auchan super mart.

This comes to a surprise to me, because Belgium isn't the country with the lowest taxes in Europe..., but rather the highest.
