who will be next World Bank President What will they do


A new entry - Mark Malloch Brown. Inter City Press at the UN has put forward a strong case for former UNDP head Mark Malloch Brown to take over from Wolfowitz.

Brown, currently at Yale University, has held posts as head of UNDP, number two to Kofi Annan at the UN, and head of the external affairs department at the Bank. Inter City Press points to the role played in the Wolfowitz affair by Dutchman Ad Melkert, former World Bank executive director and now number two at UNDP. Supporters of this theory will have to come up with an answer as to how the Americans will respond to Europeans - Brown is a British national - at the head of both the Bank and the Fund. Unlikely.
