IMF head Christine Lagarde on economy, equality, and empowerment
When Christine Lagarde took the helm of the International Monetary Fund in 2011, the Greek government teetered on bankruptcy, Athens reaked of smoke and tear gas, and other European nations looked like they might follow.
Today, talk of the Eurozone's demise has faded. But debt levels are high, economic growth is slow, and youth unemployment is rampant.
Ms. Lagarde has become a champion for change, calling for reform of the financial sector, and advocating for greater economic participation for women. She has also taken some controversial positions, such as arguing for an energy tax as a way to combat climate change.
We reached Christine Lagarde in Montreal where she is attending the International Forum of the Americas.
