Today, I was reading a blog post by Krugman that was pointing out some of miscalculations the IMF made when handling the Greek debt crisis. After reading it occurred to me that there should be a Tumblr named “Trust me I am the IMF” as sort of a variation of the popular memes “Trust me I am an Engineer” or “Trust me I know what I am doing”. So, I created it. In essence it reminds me a bit of what led me to make Good Fucking Austerity Advice.
I know, this Tumblr, provides a biased and narrow view of what the IMF does but, that is precisely the point of unfair arguments, to make a point crystal clear – and the argument here, is that the IMF legitimacy can and should be questioned more often.
