who will be next World Bank President What will they do


Bank staff views. One World Bank staffer has e-mailed us to say “I know 10s of staff members who are horrified at the prospects and its implications on their ability to work with clients credibly”.

Another that there is “general shock and outrage at his inappropriateness” and that the World Bank e-mail system is clogged by the circulation of anti-Wolfowitz articles.

Of course Bank staff have to cope with regulations about making public statements so are not able to speak on the record. Some have, however, taken a risk by appealing to their Executive Director to the Bank appealing for him to block the nominee.

Bank staff, as others, can make views known on our web forum.
