2 old frauds. What is it with IMF chiefs that they are so highly though of while at the same time being typically yuck people.

Abe is an inspiration. I'm not sure what Lagarde is a classic eurocratic bore. We need antidepressants to listen to that.

Waste of good sushi, both of them.

As long as shaking hands each other, they are fine. but when she starts to talk about help money for South Korea, watch out! and better ignore that negotiation. I just wonder when the result of IMF stress test on South Korea we would know? Disclosure of the result was supposed to be in last year, but we don't hear it yet?

I wonder if this is the same restaurant Prime Minster Abe, Taro Aso and others spent 300,000円 while discussing the tax raise last year. It must be nice to be king.

She has no idea too.
