who will be next World Bank President What will they do


Krueger push factor. Someone close to the World Bank's board tells me that Anne Krueger is still in contention. And that Krueger, currently the First Deputy IMF Managing Director, is less than popular with all her colleagues at the Fund. Indeed a number of them are apparently hoping that they can push her across 19th street to go and head the World Bank.

Krueger was formerly World Bank chief economist during some of the Reagan structural adjustment years. Krueger must still be considered unlikely, partly because of her age which would rule her out from serving two terms. But perhaps more because it is not clear why the Bush administration would want to reward Krueger with the plum World Bank position, having already placed her in the IMF's number 2 post during the first Bush term.
