The US president is reportedly set to ask Deputy Defense Secretary Paul Wolfowitz to head the World Bank.

Wolfowitz: blind to the impact of global poverty

“If we want stability on our planet, we must fight to end poverty. Since the time of the Bretton Woods Conference, through the Pearson Commission, the Brandt Commission, and the Brundtland Commission, through to statements of our leaders at the 2000 Millennium Assembly – and today – all confirm that the eradication of poverty is central to stability and peace.” – Outgoing World Bank president James D. Wolfensohn, 10/3/04


“These people are not fighting because they’re poor. They’re poor because they fight all the time.” – President Bush’s nominee for World Bank president Paul Wolfowitz, Congressional Testimony, 6/6/96.

Hmm, well the neocons fight all the time, and they’re hardly poor.
