Welcome to St Lukes
Letter from Chris
“May your Kingdom come, your will be done!”
Christine Lagarde is the impressive head of the International Monetary Fund. In early February she gave the BBC’s Richard Dimbleby Lecture. She set out the challenges the world of the 21st Century faces – an ecological crisis, overpopulation, poverty and terrorism – and argued for a modern day multilateralism to solve these issues together rather than a narrow nationalism. In doing this she compared the world of 1914 to that of 1944. 100 years ago powerful nations stood against each other to further their own power struggles, demonising and destroying the enemy. 70 years ago, as the Second World was coming to an end, a new spirit of co-operation was beginning to emerge with the rise of institutions such as the United Nations, IMF, Red Cross and World Bank.
