France's economy minister urged his own left-wing government Wednesday to do far more to liberalize the economy, arguing that President Francois Hollande's Socialists had failed to reform fast enough and bring down stubbornly high unemployment.Macron, whose liberalization of the bus transport sector has prompted a mushrooming of low-price travel alternatives to the country's railway network, said much more should be down to open up other sectors closed to people without specific diplomas or qualifications that were not always justified, he said.Cutting red tape and regulation to allow people set up their own business more easily was vital, said Macron.
