Sex scandal trumps IMF failures

There’s IMF’s Dominique Strauss Kahn allegation that he sexually assaulted a maid in the NY’s Sofitel hotel, but a bigger scandal is what the IMF actually does. The Greek bailout, Portugal’s debt crisis, the anger of BRICS and other developing nations at the IMF’s imbalanced power structure. Weighing in is Nomi Prins author of, ‘It Takes a Pillage, Behind the Bonuses, Bailouts, and Backroom Deals from Washington to Wall Street.’

Rodrigo Arboleda Halaby is currently Chairman and CEO, for One Laptop per Child Association in Miami. He has worked with Nicholas Negroponte since 1982 on projects oriented towards bringing digital age technologies to educational systems in developing nations. He has been a BOD member of Save The Children Foundation and Give To Colombia Foundation and has worked extensively in diverse enterprises in Latin America and Spain.

  • @kennethmatteson?
    No. I hate fascism and any sort of authoritarian type of governing (what US is becoming basically)
    so, your remarks this way —–>

    I’m just dissapointed with people not able to free themselves from this type of global oppression. People should be able to live their lives freely, not enslaved by either being endebted to banks or spied upon their own government “for their own good”, or having to work 2 jobs to make ends meet because of the constant rising in prices everywhere.

  • Well expect to hear about it more and? more often as the crisis comes along, It is being seriously considered and may actually happen, to my dismay. Don’t really know what else to say, fuck this planet.

  • Yeah, I can’t believe she? said that a global currency would be a good idea.

  • democracy means? slavery

  • A global currency? is a fucking stupid idea.

    It is happening in real time. The Republic for the united States of America has returned and is fully seated. We now have a U.N.Ambassador representing us, as well. There is a world court that is and has been investigating the IMF, The Federal Reserve, and other criminal international banking interests for several years. The evidence against? these creatures is astounding.
    Nations need to develop their own monetary systems and control them. Democracies never succeed. Republics do.

  • @kennethmatteson good luck 🙂

    history tells me not to have so much faith in mankind. AI – Machines should take over the world so? we see at last some fairness in politics 😛

  • Wishful thinking…. I’m afraid it will never happen. Humanity has ALWAYS been controlled by the rich, for millenia. The? only slight glimpse of Democracy was during the Pericles years in ancient Athens. The golden age of Democracy.
    The rich always find a way to control the poorer masses.

  • It seems sex scandals? are the way to go to put someone you dont like away (see Julian Assange)

  • Yeah, so…To everyone that read StraightPunkEdge93’s comment re: “YOUT00B3R1” please just recognize that Y0UT00B3R1 is completely aware of their government’s issues and faults, and at no time? defended (nor even mentioned) the IMF; but more so, is aware of the blatant fuckery and tactics of twisted Russian propaganda, issued to and devoured by sorry losers like StraightPunkEdge93, eaMusIk2008, BrotherAlpha & Gabrielregalado2; who would rather believe the Kremlin’s lies. But, to each their own…

  • @CheeezMaster Which third world country are you? from?

    Y0UT00B3R is just a troll , probably cuz he lives in his? mothers basement or gets raped a lot.

  • That guy is just a? troll and his posts are spam.

  • traditionally, the world bank is lead by an american, and the imf is lead by? a european

    Did anyone else keep staring at the buttons on her? shirt?

  • Dominique Strauss Kahn was set up..I do not like him but i have to say that it is very suspicious that all this happened just before the French? election..

    Dominique Strauss pissed off a Rothschild or Rockefeller because otherwise? the hotel worker would shut up and crawl away or die. Strauss pissed someone off and they are punishing him with this set-up. He is done for.

    It’s called a transfer of wealth. They did it before and brought war, disease, famine, and death to all the world. And, once again, all mankind has been robbed? by these International banking criminals. when will humanity rise up and say, “No More!” I would guess that that would be very very soon.

  • The banking systems are ruining the? whole world…they are the reason for the bad shit that happens now. Fucking scum power freaks!!

  • this is giving ALL ” hotel workers ” a really BAD name,
    so hotel workers of world : UNITE !! teach those ELITES that they
    better watch out when doing “really” bad things in their hotel room
    anywhere in the world, don’t be timid.
    Don’t blame DSK -? he’s just being made a scape goat ……………..
    ……… poor Dominique !!

  • Dominique Strauss? is a Jew

  • so the european central bank has been using the imf to preserve the euro.

    which british and american banks have been trying to destroy by financially sabotaging the eu’s weakest link greece?

    so the woman who is accusing the head of the imf is a cia asset and the goal is to smear him and by extension the imf?

    am i understanding this correctly?

    so its a war between european banks fighting for? the survival of the eu
    vs
    the uk/us banks trying to destroy the eu?

    To everyone? that has a comment towards YOUT00B3R1 please just recongize that this man or woman is in complete denial about our government and would rather believe the lies than hear the truth.

  • If ‘they’ wanted? him released, he would have been….
