Christine Lagarde, CEO of the IMF, doesn’t have her troubles to seek at the moment. She is to stand trial over a state payout to the French tycoon Bernard Tapie when she served as economy minister under President Nicolas Sarkozy. Mr Tapie was a supporter of Mr Sarkozy and there were allegations this may have played a role in her decision. She denies any wrongdoing, saying she acted in the interest of the state and with respect for the law.
Now an internal watchdog’s report has pronounced that ‘the IMF’s top staff misled their own board, made a series of calamitous misjudgments in Greece, became euphoric cheerleaders for the euro project, ignored warning signs of impending crisis, and collectively failed to grasp an elemental concept of currency theory.’ http://goo.gl/kqVZDE
They punished Greece in order to save the euro and northern European banks – in what ex-finance minister Yanis Varoufakis called an exercise in “fiscal water-boarding”.
In castigating the IMF, the report has laid bare, in searing detail, the gigantic flaw in the eurozone set up.
