Christine worries that the world is facing stalled growth, high unemployment, potential social unrest from the people as a result and financial markets in disarray. It all sounds too familiar and too close to home. What could be worse? And with all these world problems in front of him, how could Strauss Kahn find time for such a diverse sex life?
We are involved in a continuum of the crisis in 2008. Christine want to be desperately optimistic that things will get better. The United States’ biggest problem is the political bickering. She hopes that both the Republicans and Democrats could come to terms about the deficit and our debt. There is a degree of uncertainty where markets need certainty.
Before her employment, the IMF had a reputation of being a boys club. What matters to her is that she would not be the last woman more than that she is the first woman there.
She had a good childhood until her father died when she was 16. He died of Lou Gehrig’s Disease. Her Mother was a strong woman that raised 4 children alone. Christine draws strength from her mother. When Christine applied for her first job with a Paris Law Firm, she was told don’t expect a partnership at this firm because you are a woman! She packed up and said she won’t work for them in any position.
Eventually, she became France’s first woman to serve as its Finance Minister in 2007 for Prime Minister Sarkozy. She is frustrated that the banks give themselves large pieces of the companies profits. She values her boyfriend and her child more than anything. The buzz is that France wants her to run and win the next Presidential Election in France. For now she has this job for 5 years. Good luck Christine and save the world from financial doom.
