Rehn Scorns IMF Dirty Water, Jabs at German-French Ideas

European Economic and Monetary Commissioner Olli Rehn defended the handling of the debt crisis, accusing critics of dumping “dirty water” on the save-the-euro effort and shunning German-French proposals to wrest control of economic management.

Rehn said the International Monetary Fund, the euro area’s crisis-management associate since the first Greek program in early 2010, went astray this week when it accused the European Commission of flubbing the restart of Greece’s economy.
