Who better than the IMF to fight climate change
Why in the world is Mr Strauss-Kahn, the IMF chief economist, heralding a new IMF Green Fund focusing on mitigating climate change in Africa? Is this a new kind of IMF conditionality? What does the IMF have to do with global warming? Maybe he just wants to increase his popular appeal before running for the French presidency in a couple of years.
