who will be next World Bank President What will they do


Historic open Letter by the who's who of former world bank senior officials .. In an unprecedented open letter published today by the FT, over 40 Former senior World Bankers, including Managing Directors, Vice Presidents, and Directors, call on Paul Wolfowitz to resign.

FT correspondents point out correctly that "the list of signatories contradicts the argument that opposition to Mr Wolfowitz comes only from the left and outside the US. Roughly one-fifth of the signatories are American – matching the proportion of Americans in senior bank jobs – and the list includes free-market advocates such as Peter Woicke and Gerard Caprio".
