The IMF after the Strauss-Kahn scandal in the US
French Finance minister Christine Lagarde, though absent from Deauville, has secured the backing of the G8. There is consequently a very good chance to see her elected soon to replace M. Strauss-Kahn, soon to be on trial in the US for alleged sexual assault. Nevertheless, Christine Lagarde's position will be quite different from her predecessor.
