Christine Lagarde Will Become Unwanted in Europe

Christine Lagarde will soon become unwanted in Europe. The losses of European banking shares accelerated after the speech of IMF president, Christine Lagarde, saying that a liquidity crisis could not be ruled out and some banks needed additional capital. Christine Lagarde also called the advanced economies to stimulate the growth by all means. Is the speech of Christine Lagarde to blame for the drop of banking shares?
