The Managing Director of the International Monetary Fund is in nominal charge of the organisation. The degree of actual control is a matter of debate.

Control

Richard McCormack, US chairman of Le Cercle was a "special advisor" to IMF Managing Director Rodrigo de Rato Figaredo.

Criminality

Multiple IMF Managing Directors have been criminally charged. Rodrigo de Rato Figaredo has been convicted of embezzlement, Christine Lagarde convicted of negligence (although the judge did not impose a penalty).[1]

Deep events

In February 2011, Dominique Strauss-Kahn, managing director of the IMF, called for an end to the petrodollar system, mooting a new world currency to challenge the dominance of the US dollar. He was forced out of his role at the IMF amidst accusations of sexual assault a few months later.[2]
