who will be next World Bank President What will they do


Hats off to the staff of the World Bank Group. Much has been written about the loss of credibility of the world bank because of Wolfowitz's actions and words. I just wanted to also point out .......

that the actions of the staff of the bank, under the leadership of the staff association, have increased the credibility of the institution itself in my eyes. Despite the disgraceful actions of its president and his cabal. The staff themselves have demonstrated beyond any reasonable doubt that the institution itself has an internal group of professional staff with very high degree of integrity . They proved to themselves and others outside the bank, that , even - or may be despite their management and even board of directors, they will fight for good corporate governance and demand accountability from themselves and their leaders.

If the staff of other international organizations can do the same thing if faced with similar circumstances, we will all end up with far more credible organizations who represent the will of the international community.
