who will be next World Bank President What will they do


Fiorina still in with chance. Two well-placed people I have just spoken to in Washington have confirmed that the administration is playing its cards very close to its chest on the Bank presidency. One said, however, that Wolfowitz rumours have died away. Another that "the latest rumour is McPherson is out of the running while Carly Fiorina is still in contention". They considered this the wrong way round.

Meanwhile Reuters has carried a story reporting that US Labor Secretary Elaine Chao is happy where she is. Chao was quoted as saying: ""I'm very honored by the talk but I'm very happy where I am."
