Another French Statist Named Head of the IMF

Another French Statist Named Head of the IMF

It’s former French Finance Minister Christine Lagarde first week as the Managing Director of the International Monetary Fund (IMF). She is replacing the former IMF chief Dominique Strauss-Kahn (DSK) who recently resigned after being arrested in New York City for an alleged rape. Shortly after DSK was formally indicted, the IMF began its month-long politicized selection process behind closed doors. In choosing Christine Lagarde to fill the vacant leadership spot, the IMF is merely replacing one French socialist with another.
