Yesterday’s post was written last week, actually. I’m so behind. This week around here the IMF is all Christine Lagarde. Our heroine Christine. Tall, straightbacked, straighttalking, take your medicine Christine.And yet, hate to disappoint you Frenchies, but it’s time the IMF went truly international. Non-European, that is. The fund is not your pet. You’re its biggest clients - don’t expect to control it as well!
Besides, if there’s one leader in France with her head on straight and her integrity intact, we should guard her jealously here. Don’t let her get away. Politics these days isn’t overcharged with competence.
