Bulldog75: IMF chief calls on US for more ‘firepower’

IMF managing director Christine Lagarde implored the United States to help back-stop debt-ridden European countries, wading neck-deep into bubbling US political waters.
Speaking in the US capital, Lagarde said the 187-nation International Monetary Fund needed more firepower to tackle financial crises raging around the globe, arguing it was in the US interest to pitch in and help Europe.
“Americans might ask themselves: why should what happens in the rest of the world concern us? Don’t we have our own problems?” she said, according to prepared remarks.
“The answer is simple: In today’s world, we cannot afford the luxury of
staying in our own mental backyards.”
“If the European economy falters, the American recovery and American jobs
would be in jeopardy. So America has a large stake in how Europe fare — and
how the world fares.”

By Lynn Thomasson and Masaki Kondo – Apr 3, 2012 9:41 PM CT
Asian stocks fell for the first time in four days, while the Australian dollar
weakened and copper slid as a report signaled the Federal Reserve may refrain
from more monetary stimulus and Australia’s services industry shrank.
The MSCI Asia Pacific Index (MXAP) declined 1 percent as of 11:35 a.m. in
Tokyo. The Nikkei 225 Stock Average slumped 1.4 percent and Standard &
Poor’s 500 Index futures lost 0.4 percent. The Australian dollar weakened 0.5
percent and the won slid against 15 of its 16 major counterparts. Copper
retreated 1 percent, the biggest drop in a week.
