      It makes the assignments take much longer than they need to. France holds a de facto veto on the boards of the two central banks within the CFA franc zone. The CFA franc is characterised as a credible and stable currency, a significant virtue given the experience of most currency-issuing African nations. Its critics base their analysis on three separate arguments. On both sides of the Channel, politics should be directed at understanding the underlying sources of anger; how, in a democracy, the political establishment could have done so little to address the concerns of so many citizens, and figuring out how to do that now: to create within each country, and through cross-border arrangements, a new, more democratic Europe, which sees its goal as improving the wellbeing of ordinary citizens.

      The two currencies, however, are not inter-convertible. While there are variations between the objectives of different national and international entities, most follow the ones detailed below: Sustainability - a rate of growth which allows an increase in living standards without undue structural and environmental difficulties. Secondly, they focus on the economic impact of the CFA franc, construed as a neocolonial device that continues to destroy any prospect of economic development in user nations. The French representative is a voting member of this committee, while the president of the WAEMU Commission attends only in an advisory capacity. Since the economic crisis, the government has had to face new economic realities and has used fiscal policy as a tool to stimulate the economy and reduce the budget deficit. France holds a de facto veto on the boards of the two central banks within the CFA franc zone.
