FOR STORY SLUGGED FRANCE SHRINKING ECONOMY - FILE -  In this Sept. 27, 2012 file photo, French Minister for Industrial Recovery Arnaud Montebourg delivers a speech after meeting workers and trade union representatives of ArcelorMittal, in Florange, northeast France.  The 50-year old lawyer Montebourg, is the man charged with reviving France's shrinking economy and attracting businesses to invest in the country, but according to some analysts he is fast gaining a reputation for doing the opposite, as public spats with international companies, and efforts to block employee layoffs are being seen as the epitome of what is wrong with the French economy.
