who will be next World Bank President What will they do


'heckuva job' Wolfie. A blog maintained by the editors of Foreign Policy Magazine takes issue with Ruth Wedgwood of Johns Hopkins University's School of Advanced International Studies and a friend of Paul Wolfowitz, who wrote to defend Wolfowitz in Today's L.A Times.

After quoting from Dr. Wedgwood, Christine Y. Chen then goes on to pointedly ask "Riza could have ended her relationship with Wolfowitz to keep working at the World Bank. Or Wolfowitz could have chosen not to accept the World Bank job so he could spare Riza the interruption in her career. Why should the World Bank be responsible for compensating her? Do they compensate every employee who transfers out for a similar reason? Would Wolfowitz go to bat for other women and men under his employ who may have had to temporarily step out of their career path because their spouse worked in the same office, or they took time off to have a kid?"
