(JACKSON HOLE, Wyo.) – IMF Chief Christine Lagarde urged the United States to take action to save the European economy at a U.S. Federal Reserve meeting in Jackson Hole on Saturday.
Lagarde warned that the global economy has not recovered at a sufficiently smooth pace. She requested that the U.S. and the E.U. coordinate their economic policies.
The speech was Lagarde’s first major appearance since taking over the IMF in July following the Dominique Strauss-Kahn scandal.
