THE French government has taken a novel approach to try and find a solution to the country's financial challenges.
Budget Minister Jean-Francois Cope has launched an online Cyberbudget game that will allow people to balance the books.
The challenge is to ensure the €300 billion budget is spent wisely and that if tax cuts are made then services do not fall into deficit.
There will be a range of tests to face, including having to present the budget to a virtual parliament and the Cyberbudget is sure to prove popular as more than 192 million pages were visited on the finance website in 2005.
