who will be next World Bank President What will they do


Wolfowitz Derangement Syndrome. Roger Simon detects racism in European reaction to the Wolfowitz nomination.

"You would think a Jewish and an Arab intellectual (both quite adult) being romantically involved would be applauded by "progressive" Europe, but I guess not," he writes.

Wolfowitz may not have much development experience, Simon admits, but he reckons that "one of the brainiest government officials" will soon be up-to-speed.

"In sum, what is the cause of this Wolfowitz Derangement Syndrome that is creating such a brouhaha in Europe?" Simon concludes.

"Well, let's hope it's not a fear that Wolfowitz, as World Bank president, might want to make all aid dealings of the bank transparent. That wouldn't reflect well on our European friends, would it?"
