Dominique Strauss-Khan (often called DSK) is a French politician, from the Socialist Party. He has been Minister of Economics and managing director of the International Monetary Fund (IMF) from 2007 to 2011. He may have been the candidate for the Socialist Party during the election of the French President in 2012, and is assumed to have good chances to win. He was lecturer in economics for some years in several French universities.
French often nickname him as "the best economist of France" newspapers (e.g. here) . To be simple:
Is DSK the best economics of France?
This question is certainly opinion-based, but economics is, among other things, the science of evaluation and of utility, I hope there may exist some metrics (directing the IMF may be one of these) that allows to estimate his importance in the current economic world so the question may be understood as
In which perspective can DSK be considered as the best economist of France? Under which criteria?
PS: I didn't know exactly how to tag this question. I used macroeconomics because of his position at IMF and his involvement in the Greek crisis.
