It seems like there is almost no newspaper or comment writer out there that actually wants Lagarde to be the head of the IMF. The influential weekly news magazine, The Economist, editorialised against Lagarde last Friday.
“… the stitch-up, whereby the head of the IMF is a European and the head of the World Bank is an American, is a disgrace. International posts should be filled according to merit. And the growth of emerging economies makes it even less defensible.
