who will be next World Bank President What will they do


Bring in the U.S. Congress? Now that it's clear the Wolfowitz debacle will not be resolved on the weekend, we can ponder what will happen during the working week.

Seems to me that concerned members of the U.S. Congress, who are rarely shy about investigating mismanagement at the World Bank, should be encouraged to consider hearings into the institution's personnel practices. Now that the Democrats are in charge of Congress, this may not be difficult.

And it would serve to underline the very real prospect that getting Congress to commit to funding IDA -- and it is Congress, not the President, which allocates U.S. budget dollars -- could be hopeless so long as Wolfowitz remains in the president's chair.
