Swedish Finance Minister Anders Borg joined a string of European officials on Tuesday in saying that a successor to Strauss-Kahn should come from Europe because of the IMF's deep involvement in the euro zone debt crisis. (Reuters)
When was the last non-European in charge of the IMF? Never. And when has the IMF told developing countries to get their financial houses in order? Often.

It doesn't matter. The US/EUR elite will just merge with the Chinese elite - there's enough room in the club for anyone who has the resources and connections. Our masters are a multi-racial bunch. The US/EUR public may not like the idea of Chinese dominance, but it makes no difference to the economic powers-that-be. It's all the same club at that level.
