The billionaire heiress of L'Oreal and the head of Total oil were among 16 business executives and super-rich individuals to publish a petition to the French government calling for a "special contribution" that would target the very wealthy.

The petition, published Tuesday on the website of weekly magazine Le Nouvel Observateur, follows a call by American billionaire Warren Buffett for US authorities to raise taxes for himself and other ultra-wealthy earners.

President Nicolas Sarkozy ordered the savings measures two weeks ago amid rumors that the country would lose its top-notch, triple-A credit rating - rumors that caused French bank stocks to plummet.

The need for new austerity measures arose as France's economic growth stalled for the second quarter of the year, after a robust 0.9 percent growth during the first three months of 2011.

The country aims to cut its public deficit to 5.7 percent this year and reach the European Union's theoretical maximum of 3 percent in 2013. Sarkozy, meanwhile, is targeting his low popularity ratings, currently 33 percent, ahead of national elections next year.

Best Travel Guide to Paris? (or even France, in general)?

I went to Paris last year and used the DK Eyewitness Travel Guide but was wondering if there's a more detailed one available, it's great for a short trip but I'm looking for one where I could plan a couple months for. Any good suggestions for travel guides??

The Dorling Kindersley Eyewitness Guides have always been best for me for detail and practical information- I would recommend the DK France guide and the Frommer's France guide and Best Loved Driving Tours of France. I have found Frommer's in general has the best restaurant information, but I have been often been confused/lost by their street maps- DK's are easier for me to follow.

Travel to WW1/WW2 Battlefield sites....?

Has anyone travelled privately and used local guides to visit these sites? Planning to travel in small family group, 3 males, and wonder if anyone can give advice, contacts etc.

Get a car, a cross channel ticket, a map and a good guide book..thats what ive done in the past..Ive done the beaches of Normandy, The Dams of dambusting fame, Auschwitz , the channel islands , Colditz , the Ardene and whats left of the Somme...The best bit of advice i can give you, especially in France, is to talk to the locals..Most are only to happy to point you in the right direction and you will uncover things and stories(sometimes eyewitness accounts) that the books dont cover..Its amazing what you can discover just by accessing local knowledge
