I'm too disgusted to even find an article to link to.

If you were president of a bank, and a guy walked in holding a shotgun and wearing a ski mask, would you offer him a fucking job?

I'd have to believe that a lot of folks WITHIN the World Bank are probably bothered by this. In the wake of the anti-globalization movement, the World Bank has been getting creamed, particularly since '99. It's too bad, because this is a complex organization, which most people understand very little about (which is part of the problem with them).

So, rather than picking a good economist with no recognition, or a good administrator with experience, Bush picked arguably the most high profile neo-conservative on the planet. I'm certain the number crunching geeks who work for the Bank look forward to the black bloc obstructing their access into buildings, while giant puppets of Wolfowitz with devil horns get waved around the street.

On my point about this being really bad for the Bank's p.r.:

"But consider another interpretation. Despite the unpopularity of the Iraq war, Wolfowitz's strength is that he'll make the bank a tool of U.S. policy. And if you're going to have an ideology, Wolfowitz has the right one." LINK

This guy's argument is that the World Bank is effective because it is a Washington-centered organization, kept out of the evil econimic grasp of Tokyo or wherever else.

He of course neglects the fact that associating the World Bank with America and the neo-conservative movement will a) make large, annual meetings really entertaining, and b) make it harder (in my opinion) for the Bank to go about its every day, global busines, if it is perceived as a tool of this administration.

This makes me believe in the free mason - illuminati plans for a new world order. Get ready to start paying for things with your phone.
