Countries have different methods to arrive at policy decisions. Why has nuclear power been favored more in France than the US?

The USA is the world's largest producer of nuclear power, accounting for more than 30% of worldwide nuclear generation of electricity. The country's nuclear reactors produced 805 billion kWh in 2017, 20% of total electrical output. There are two reactors under construction.

France derives about 75% of its electricity from nuclear energy, due to a long-standing policy based on energy security. Government policy is to reduce this to 50% by 2035.

The United States, France, and Britain use markedly different kinds of industrial policies to foster economic growth.
