In his programmatic book for 2022, Nicolas Dupont-Aignan in search of “wasted money”

The title of Nicolas Dupont-Aignan’s little book undoubtedly lacks a bit of elegance, but the reader gets his money’s worth. With Where does the dough go? (L’Archipel, 160 pages, 10 euros, to be published on October 7), the sovereignist candidate for the presidential election accumulates parliamentary or European reports, goes through the analyzes of INSEE or the Court of Auditors to detail, sector by sector, “The wasted money that bleeds the nation in excessive taxes”. The book is intended as a battle plan “To rebuild France”. In any case, it is a program that its right-wing and far-right competitors have so far avoided.

The member for Essonne begins by evoking social fraud, and in particular the impressive number of false Vitale cards: the reality, unfortunately, is a little unclear. Estimates range from 0.6 million to 7.76 million, depending on whether one refers to the Directorate of Social Security or to the reports of the General Inspectorate of Finance and Social Affairs. Nicolas Dupont-Aignan admits that“It is impossible to precisely quantify social fraud, but we can estimate its order of magnitude” : for him, at least 20 billion euros.

“The huge French waste”

He obviously devotes a chapter to “Exorbitant cost” that immigration represents (5.5 billion euros per year), in line with the “great replacement”: “The French are called upon to finance their own replacement by fueling an infernal spiral. “ He then attacks, like a good sovereignist, the European Union: “Give her 25 billion, she will give you back 15!” “ Then follow the scams at the VAT, the highways, the wind turbines: Nicolas Dupont-Aignan made the calculation of “The huge French mess”, and miraculously arrives at a round figure: 100 billion euros. The candidate explains how to distribute them in a second part. It’s less difficult.

The author and his teams have undoubtedly worked, they also punctuate the book with QR codes that allow you to consult a particular report. The figures, though not indisputable, are at least based on searchable sources. There remains a strong populist fragrance on reading these “Hidden scandals” which the author makes his honey.
