One favor: when you link to something in the New York Times, would you mind flagging the source? Some of us are on the other side of the pay wall and only have 20 free articles a month. I've now used up two from your site (I believe they count as two)--links that, had I known were from the Times, I probably wouldn't have followed.

On a more positive note: I am crazy about your site and everything you do here!

wm, I'll try to remember, but I can't guarantee it. You can always look at the link address before clicking.

Sounds like a plausible criticism. So much vaunted her dispassionate economic views turn out to be special pleading. Can't say I am too surprised. Do we really expect to find a person of probity in the world of fabulously privileged?

Personally I can't understand why European countries would back her up when there's the Tapie affair - one IMF chief with legal troubles should be enough.
I do understand the rest of why she's their choice and why she's wrong though so perhaps everyone's convinced the Tapie affair will be made to go away?
