World Bank President

The work that Amy and I perform at IOS Partners is largely reactive to development banks, which supply the funds to consulting firms such as IOS to conduct work in developing countries.  Therefore, I found this recent Economist article contesting Obama's pick for the next World Bank president very interesting.  I find myself in agreement with the article, which supports Nigeria's Finance Minister Ngozi to be the next president, rather than Obama's pick of Yong Kim, a health expert who has been quoted deriding economic policies that attempt to promote economic growth.  Read the article and decide for yourselves who is better suited to have arguable the highest authority in global poverty reduction and economic growth strategies for developing countries.
