The Arrest of Dominique Strauss-Kahn

The Interwebs comment on the arrest of the managing director of the International Monetary Fund on charges of sexual assault:

  1. Kieran Healy: @kjhealy: "No-one told Dominique Strauss-Kahn that being Director of the IMF doesn't mean you get to do to people what the IMF does to countries."

  2. N.S. Ramnath on Google Buzz: "Strauss-Kahn's defense: I mistook her for a country."

  3. A commenter on Tyler Cowen's post: "The incentive for an IMF head to be a sex criminal is as you say quite low, but presumably the incentive for a sex criminal to be the head of the IMF is high…." [Hat tip to Christopher Shea's post: Are Rich, Powerful People Less Likely To Be Guilty?
