A world in economic crisis

IMF candidates

Posted in Uncategorized by Aussie on June 14, 2011

The IMF has picked Christine Lagarde and Agustin Carstens as the candidates for the post of CEO. The Israeli, Stanley Fischer, who would in fact be ideal for the role, was not chosen to be a candidate. The IMF cited their by-laws that the CEO must be under 65.

This should be interesting because in either case, there will be a first – it could be the first woman to head the IMF, which is not a bad thing, but it could be a first for a non-European to head the IMF.
