who will be next World Bank President What will they do


Countdown to Coronation Today -- Wednesday -- Paul Wolfowitz is on his way to Brussels to meet with European development and finance ministers. (The meeting has been re-located from Luxembourg -- some Low Country rivalry apparently.) That "low-key" meeting, which will, it is promised, be followed by no press conference or announcement, takes place the day before the World Bank board is scheduled to vote on his nomination. Acceptance is virtually certain, as is much holding of noses. We also understand that activists will be ridiculing the process outside the Bank as the Directors take their seats.
