who will be next World Bank President What will they do


Bennett spends his expensive time on the phone with reporters .... Robert Bennett, the newly hired lawyer of Paul Wolfowitz is spending his time -said to cost about $600 to $700 an hour, trying to change the conversation from his client's nepotism and misjudgments charges to how the world bank staff are just upset because Wolfowitz - and of course "his trusted deputy, Suzanne Rich Folsom", as Kevin Hassett generously describes her - are "tough on corruption".

Insiders say that Bennett is also behind the criticism of the world bank staff and their salary structure that is mentioned in these bloomberg articles ( see HERE and HERE ). Many reporters are not biting however. It is still not clear who is paying for Mr. Bennett's time yet.
