Το πιο σκληρό άρθρο που έχει γραφεί για τον ρόλο του ΔΝΤ στην Ελληνική κατάρρευση, δημοσιεύθηκε στο Spiegel σε μία εξαιρετικά κρίσιμη συγκυρία.
Το περιοδικό ρίχνει βαρύτατες ευθύνες στο ΔΝΤ και προσωπικά στην Λαγκάρντ για την πολιτική που ακολούθησε έναντι της Ελλάδας, κατηγορώντας την ευθέως ότι την οδήγησε στην καταστροφή.
Εξαιρετικά σημαντική είναι η μομφή που της αποδίδει ότι «αντί να ασχολείται με την λειτουργία του ταμείου, έγινε συνεργός του Βερολίνου και των Βρυξελών, συμβάλλοντας στην προσπάθεια ανατροπής της εκλεγμένης κυβέρνησης της Ελλάδας!
Όλα αυτά που;
Στο Γερμανικό Spiegel!
Κλείνοντας ο αρθρογράφος ζητά ευθέως την παραίτηση της Λαγκάρντ, επαναλαμβάνοντας το λογίδριο περί «ηθικών λόγων» που συνόδεψε την αποπομπή του Στρως Καν!

Referendum? What referendum? That is the tenor irritated, one wonders at the International Monetary Fund (IMF) to Greece. Many IMF staff are bleary-eyed noticeable complaining internally about the criticism and the current workload. Outwardly they do but as not shake the Greek reform-no to their busy schedule for this week: negotiations with Tanzania, a report on the US economy, a press conference on the global economic outlook – business as usual. Even IMF chief Christine Lagarde is emphasized distance showcased. «The IMF yesterday’s referendum in Greece taken note of,» she said on Monday laconically – 18 hours after the result was clear, and to see without himself. It was «prepared to support Greece, we are asked.» Lagarde’s cynical phrases Two sets only. Cynical sentences – because instead of to prove himself as a savior of Greece, Lagarde has now reached the opposite. She stands before the ruins of a failed policy that has been checked the IMF long as they previously shook up only powerless developing countries. But now that this policy Europe – no wonder that now no longer just the tried and true IMF critics of Lagarde demanding that she should give up their job. Under Lagarde, the IMF has become part of the problem by the crisis have only worsened, writes Harvard political scientist David Singh Grewal in the «Huffington Post». He called for a «separation at the top»: With its uncompromising attitude Lagarde had wanted as a «servant of Berlin and Brussels» provoke a regime change in Athens – and thus their qualification permanently playful. «The IMF is doing in Greece now that, since the eighties, what he is doing in Africa,» criticized the analyst Robert Naiman from progressive think tank Just Foreign Policy. Behind the credit policy of the Fund put this time the attempt to overthrow a government. Even old reports of Lagarde are regurgitated in the social networks. They pay no taxes on their 467,940-dollar annual salary. You’ve let wegretuschieren as French Finance Minister on a portrait photo jewelry. And then there’s also this financial scandal in her home at the businessman Bernard Tapie, in which she is involved. The critics are gearing up.
Similar concerns exist within the fund for a long time. How the IMF is torn, showed his recent analysis Greece last week. Accordingly, Athens is his debts can never repay or only after «significant prolonged» due dates or even a haircut – previously a taboo in Brussels because Europe would have to write off billions. The gloomy forecast – which nevertheless did not alter the IMF lending – caused quite a stir, was politicized promptly and should have taken care of with the Ochi. Time for a reform of the IMF’s human resources policy But the publication of the report three days before the referendum was internally so controversial that the dispute in this press transpired. According to Reuters information, the European IMF partners locked against it because they feared an impact on the Greek vote, but were «heavily outvoted» – including by the United States. In order for a haircut is on the table – also for the IMF, which must also fear for many billions. When Greece missed its last IMF rate, as the first industrial nation ever in history, an untested mechanism came into effect: Parallel to the talks in Brussels, the IMF now needs to negotiate with Athens the future of open IMF debt. This is new territory for the fund, which had previously only such problems with developing countries. Lagarde’s term of office ends in mid 2016. «As managing director is expected of you, that you meet the highest ethical standards of conduct,» it wrote, the IMF 2011 in the contract. This etiquette Passage was a response to the Sexaffären her predecessor Dominique Strauss-Kahn – but could now also be their undoing, when it comes to their contract renewal next year. Should they go ahead or not, that would be a good opportunity for a reform of the IMF’s human resources policy. Per tradition of top job goes to a European, and the top job of the World Bank, the IMF’s sister institution next door to an American. Even more demanding Africa, Asia and Latin America an amendment. A Lagarde successor of Europe now appears to be an ever worse idea. In summary: The failed rescue policy for Greece brings IMF chief Christine Lagarde in distress. Their term of office ends next year. An extension of the contract is uncertain, critics call even its early resignation.
