How did Lagarde become head of the IMF if she has no formal training in finance or economics? I know she was finance minister in france, but still...you aren't going to become a physicist without academic training in physics, and you're not going to become a surgeon without going to medical school. So if you want to run the IMF, you should go to law-school and become a corporate lawyer? Don't get it. Or is the head of the IMF more like a manager who runs a hospital, but doesn't need to know how to do surgery (or much about academic economics in her case)?
