Read My Lips: A Day in the Life of a German Film Dubber

I.M.F. Chief's Change of Tune on Bank Capital After sounding the alarm on European banks, Christine Lagarde, the head of the International Monetary Fund, is desperately trying to back pedal on her call for the "urgent recapitalization" of the industry. Over the weekend, she denounced an internal I.M.F. document, saying the European banks capital cushion was short by $273.2 billion.

Changing her tune seems to be a theme for Ms. Lagarde, writes Andrew Ross Sorkin in his DealBook column. But Europe's economic problems won't be fixed until the regulators accept that the banks need more capital.
