Previously, she held various ministerial posts in the French government: she was Minister of Economic Affairs, Finance and Employment and before that Minister of Agriculture and Fishing and Minister of Trade in the government of Dominique de Villepin. Lagarde was the first woman to become finance minister of a G8 economy, and is the first woman to head the IMF.
A noted antitrust and labour lawyer, Lagarde became the first female chairwoman of the international law firm Baker & McKenzie. On 16 November 2009, the Financial Times ranked her the best Minister of Finance in the Eurozone. On 28 June 2011, she was named as the next MD of the IMF for a five-year term, starting on 5 July 2011, replacing Dominique Strauss-Kahn. Her appointment is the 11th consecutive appointment of a European to head the IMF. In 2014, Lagarde was ranked the 5th most powerful woman in the world by Forbes magazine.
Boleh disimpulkan bahawa Christine Lagarde yang merupakan Governor kepada semua Governor Bank-Bank negara dalam dunia adalah ahli politik!
Malah Zeti begitu rapat dengan ahli politik ini. Lagarde puji pengetahuan Zeti yang tudung pun tak pakai dan tiada segan untuk meminta whiskey dalam kapalterbang MAS dalam ilmu kewangan Islam.
Datuk Seri Nazir Razak today described Bank Negara Governor Tan Sri Zeti Akhtar Aziz as an icon in the international finance arena, amid continuing speculation that the latter is under pressure to step down.

Rakyat Malaysia pasti masih ingat sahabat Anwar Ibrahim, Paul Wolfowitz. Lihat latarbelakangnya pula:
Paul Dundes Wolfowitz (born December 22, 1943) is a former President of the World Bank, United States Ambassador to Indonesia, U.S. Deputy Secretary of Defense, and former dean of the Paul H. Nitze School of Advanced International Studies at Johns Hopkins University. He is currently a visiting scholar at the American Enterprise Institute, working on issues of international economic development, Africa and public-private partnerships, and chairman of the US-Taiwan Business Council.
He is a leading neoconservative. As Deputy Secretary of Defense, he was "a major architect of President Bush's Iraq policy and ... its most hawkish advocate". In fact, "the Bush Doctrine was largely [his] handiwork". Donald Rumsfeld in his interview with Fox News on February 8, 2011, said that Wolfowitz was the first to bring up Iraq after the 9/11 attacks during a meeting at the presidential retreat at Camp David.
After serving two years, he resigned as president of the World Bank Group due to scandals described by a Reuters report as "a protracted battle over his stewardship, prompted by his involvement in a high-paying promotion for his companion".

Adakah "leading neoconservative" bukan ahli politik yang telah menjadi President Bank Dunia?
Nak pergi lagi jauh, Robert McNamara adalah satu lagi bekas President Bank Dunia berlatarbelakang politik. Dia adalah bekas Setiausaha pertahanan White House zaman President Kennedy dan Lyndon B Johnson.
