Bursting Bono's bubble. A US student newspaper has a pot at Bono, considering him well-motivated and -informed on the issues, but not well-suited to the job.

Chuck Prokaska, writing in The Daily Illini, comments "many think that selecting Bono is an idea so crazy that it just might work". But "running the World Bank requires more than a big heart, crazy sunglasses and an Irish brogue. Bono has no formal education in economic policy-making - his simplistic rallying cry is that rich countries need to give poor countries more money".
