Christine Lagarde, the finance minister of France, was voted to the post of managing director of the International Monetary Fund on Tuesday.
Lagarde, the first woman to run the global financial institution, will replace Dominique Strauss-Kahn, who was arrested last month in New York on sexual assault charges.

It's good to see the IMF economic hit team pick new leadership. After all, their Endgame has begun, and you gotta have someone at the helm when they begin slaying nations!
Christine Lagarde, the French Finance Minister who has been pivotal in the process towards drafting and proposing a ‘European economic government’, is also considered the front-runner for the job of Managing Director of the IMF. The Managing Director of the IMF is always in attendance at Bilderberg meetings, except for this year, considering outgoing director Dominique Strauss-Kahn is facing sexual assault charges in New York; yet, the top job is usually set aside for those who have been invited to at least one meeting of the Bilderberg Group. While the race has yet to finish, perhaps it is noteworthy that Christine Lagarde attended a Bilderberg meeting in 2009. Could this make her the supreme choice, or is there a surprise in the near future?
