who will be next World Bank President What will they do
 
 

     
 

Appeal by European economists. A list of leading European economists have signed a statement against the Wolfowitz nomination as World Bank president. It says "at the very least, Mr. Wolfowitz is a highly controversial choice. He has not been supportive of the multilateral institutions and has not demonstrated in the past his support of the development community" and calls for the process to be opened up.

The La Voce site also contains (in English and Italian) a strong piece by Alberto Alesina and Roberto Perotti condemning European posturing and hypocrisy about this issue and multilateralism in general.
