who will be next World Bank President What will they do


And you thought Bolton was a scary thought? The quest to scare us with thoughts of who Bush might come up with if he's allowed a second crack at nominating the WB president for 5 years had reached its high-water mark with the suggestion of John Bolton, former U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations. That looks like mere child's play, however, now that Bloomberg columnist Matthew Lynn, after making clear his affection for Wolfowitz and mentioning usual suspects like Bono and Clinton (and that more recent, and slightly more plausible idea, Blair) comes up with ... former US Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld!
