who will be next World Bank President What will they do


Apologists What part of the definition of nepotism don't the apologists of Wolfowitz understand? It is sickening to listen or read that it is only a mistake or a mis-step on Wolfowitz part because he didn't know the rules of the Bank. Come on, even a peasant knows what the word "bribery" means when he is paying for favours.

However, this is not the mantra that his neo-con friends have been broadcasting during these past two weeks, after the man himself has recognized that he has lost the confidence of the staff, contributing donors and civil societies and did apologize for his actions. According to Kevin Hasset: "while Wolfowitz made a "misstep" intervening on his partner's behalf, it wasn't a big one."
If the act of nepotism or its consequences were not illegal , then I wonder what constitutes good governance in the work place, let alone in an IFI :-)
