  • IMF director general Dominique Strauss-Kahn has been arrested in New York minutes before leaving on a flight for France, and is accused of a sexual attack on a hotel maid in NYC. Strauss-Kahn is expected to be a candidate for president of France in 2012. Update at 11:15 PM: NYPD says it's anticipated he'll be charged with "a criminal sexual act, attempted rape, and unlawful imprisonment" within the hour.  [View news story]
    Per the NY Times, he was not handcuffed during the apprehension. Not a serious enough crime ? Not a threat ? Go commit a crime in Paris and see how jacked up you get...what a joke.

  • If, as it's been argued, the IMF's soft-touch ("politically sensitive") approach to the eurozone debt crisis stemmed from Strauss-Kahn's designs for the French presidency, an abrupt change could result in a more confrontational stance with countries like Greece.  [View news story]

    Depends on your perspective.

    The maid who has no education or prospects and now barely gets by earning 10 bucks an hour is about to become a wealthy lady.

    He's fucked in many ways, either way. I am not going to portend that I know what the political implications are of this alleged tryst/ assault, but i'm sure someone stands to benefit, and others to lose. I hope he has his coming to him here if he's an animal.

  • Matt Taibbi's latest strike in his war on "vampire squid" Goldman Sachs (GS): "If the Justice Department fails to give the American people a chance to judge this case - if Goldman skates without so much as a trial - it will confirm once and for all the embarrassing truth: that the law in America is subjective, and crime is defined not by what you did, but by who you are."  [View news story]

  • Monday's after-hours glitch should spark more concern than it has: When exchange officials "basically try to sweep it under the rug and say it is nothing... you leave the door open for this to happen again and again... [If] investors at large do not have trust in the system, then the system will fail to exist." Reminder: the flash crash, one year ago this Friday.  [View news story]
