Kemal Dervis has co-taught a Global Economic Governance course at Columbia's SIPA since Fall 2009. If readers are interested in his worldview, they can find a sample chapter of his 2005 book here. I fully agree he'd be a perfect choice.


Dervis is the top candidate for the IMF post.

Helmut Reisen

I could not agree more. And what is more (and has to be told to Angela Merkel): his mother is Dutch-German; that will convince her, perhaps...

Helmut Reisen

Kemal Dervis reflects best the shifting center of gravity from the West twd the East, but will not be a cold-turkey leader (this is what the Latin Europeans are dreading right now).

David Sayers

I'd agree that in terms of qualifications, Dervis is the right man for the job. But you do realize that given his private record, we'll most likely get a repeat performance of the whole DSK affair within a few years?

Somnath Sen

I agree, the IMF needs an economist, a professional and an academic rather than a politician. For very long it has been dominated by West European political types, and given their propensity to be corrupt and scandal prone, its time to change. Of course, Gordon Brown would also break the mould, but he has own problems!

Can Erbil

I agree whole heartedly!

Kemal Dervis would do a superb job.

It would be a win-win-win situation for the IMF, Europe and the developing country initiative.

All this ...appraisal for nothing! He has withdrawn his candidacy!

It is the first major musical project undertaken by Stump since Fall Out Boy's hiatus in late 2009. The album features no guest artists (besides a bonus remix track with guest vocals from Lupe Fiasco), and Stump wrote all the tracks and played all the instruments on the album, as well as handling production. Stump has been often compared to Michael Jackson, whom he has cited as a major influence.[3] He has commented on the album being "90% metaphors."

I’m always surprised by people who think that being polite is better than being assertive. There will always be someone who is prepared to stand in front of you for the promotion or important task that leads to one. ring die pellet mill

Consider the (almost) impossible combination of demands that must be met during the job search. The Germans insist the new managing director should be from Europe. Europe's weak periphery wants someone who will be sympathetic to their cause and hit the ground running. Emerging market and developing economies ask for a leader that departs from the usual mold and will reflect their outlook and preferences for a change. And the world needs simply the best man or woman for the job. china outsourcing
