Life Cycles at Bercy. Twenty-Two Months to Succeed as Finance Minister

Under the Fifth Republic, the longevity of the ministers of the Economy and Finance has tended to decrease to below two years. The reasons are to be found in the political system, individual trajectories or the implementation of public policies and reforms. While this life cycle is similar to those of ministers in other departments, it is inferior to that of the German and British ministers, which reduces the continuity of the French representation at the European level and limits the capacity to embody long term policies with consistency. Besides, the discrepancy between the time required for the implementation of public policies and the life cycle of the minister leads the latter to focus on the short term. However, Bercy is a springboard offering access to the highest responsibilities in France or within international institutions.
