Is France Heading for a Frexit?

French presidential candidates Marine Le Pen and Emmanuel Macron.

France is getting ready to vote for its next president on Sunday, May 7.

The choice is between independent centrist Emmanuel Macron, or far-right nationalist Marine Le Pen. And while there are many echoes in this presidential campaign of the recent presidential election in the United States, there are a lot of differences, too. The French are also facing a choice about how much they support the European Union, or, if they chose Le Pen, are looking for the Frexit.

This week on WNYC's Money Talking, host Charlie Herman talks with Rana Foroohar with The Financial Times and Rob Cox with Reuters about what the French election means, especially for the U.S.
