This Ex-IMF Economist Probably Won't Be Asking Christine Lagarde For A Recommendation

•, Sam Ro
"After twenty years of service, I am ashamed to have had any association with the Fund at all," wrote Peter Doyle an ex-economist for the International Monetary Fund.
The line comes from a letter that Doyle wrote to the IMF's executive board last week.

Here's what he had to say about IMF head Christine Lagarde: "Even the current incumbent is tainted, as neither her gender, integrity or élan can make up for the fundamental illegitimacy of the selection process."

Doyle goes on to criticize the IMF's handling of the euro crisis.

Dennis Gartman pointed us to the letter in this morning's Gartman Letter.

"We have long said that the Fund’s client states were always and everywhere the worse for having had the Fund involved in their fiscal and monetary circumstances," wrote Gartman who clearly isn't a fan of the IMF either.

CNN uploaded a PDF of the letter to their website.

He won't need a 'recommendation' from her, anyway!  BTW, WHO would want one?  The world is changing, are you?

Congressman Ron Paul’s H.R. 459, the Federal Reserve Transparency Act, could come up for a vote at any time!
