John (BLUESTAR) was able to pose a very direct question to Christine LaGarde. He phrased it carefully enough, but it was about as pointed as you can get.
Richard Quest -- the CNN moderator -- repeated it back to Christine when she looked like "how in the world do I get around this question?" but his repetition of the question didn't do John any favors.

In any case, Christine danced around the question completely, totally avoiding any reference to the GCR!
She addressed some of the issues that have gotten the world economies into their situation but didn't even try to deal with "global monetary instruments" (as BLUESTAR phrased it).
Follow-up questions by a couple of others in the audience were pretty much treated the same way. The look on Christine's face was "Can I please get out of here and not talk about this!"
John did himself proud, nevertheless!
1:30 p.m. - 2:30 p.m.
