5 Of the Most Important Money People You Might Not Know (Part 1)

To keep this series of posts more entertaining, I am going to have you visualize you are walking down the street (beach if you rather) and happened upon a few interesting people in the banking world.
Keep track of how many you know, as we will give you a humorous knowledge grade at the end of these posts.

Here is a picture of your first fellow walker.  Do you know who he is?

His name is Dominique Strauss-Kauhn.

Ok, this is a tough one, so we will give you a few hints:

The headquarters are in Washington DC.

He is chief of an organization that has “members of 187 countries, working to foster global monetary cooperation, secure financial stability, facilitate international trade, promote high employment and sustainable economic growth, and reduce poverty around the world.”

As of late, many economists have questioned the power of this chief, as economic growth throughout the world has fostered greater independence, especially in emerging economies which were once very dependent on this organization.

Congratulations, if you recognized the Managing Director of the International Monetary Fund.

Dominique Strauss-Kauhn assumed his role on November 1, 2007 and is the current managing director.

We will continue your journey soon.

Have A Great Day!
