Christine Lagarde, French Finance Minister, Says 'Libido' Influences Business Approach Of Men, Women (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

French Finance Minister Christine Lagarde appeared on "This Week" with Christiane Amanpour to discuss several important situations in the global economy, including austerity, stimilus, debt, and collapses. They also spoke about French domestic issues, like raising the retirement age from 60 to 62.

But this interview wasn't just dry business talk. Lagarde addressed her "holy cow!" moment when she found out about the Lehman Brothers bankruptcy. And she said that as a woman finance minister, she thinks that women "inject less libido and less testosterone into the equation." As a result, Lagarde say that in a majority of cases for women (though not all), it's less about ego and that allows women to approach situations in a slightly different manner.
