Can an African Woman Transform the World Bank?

"It is most tempting to support any African challenge to Washington – especially by a strong woman – given how much damage (half-Kenyan) Obama is doing to the continent by pampering its dictators, reducing medical aid, introducing the Pentagon’s Africacom military command, extracting oil and causing climate change. But The Economist, New York Times, Financial Times and dozens of former World Bank executives support [Ngozi] Okonjo-Iweala because, according to Foreign Policy journal, she is “fairly orthodox, free market.” That ideology she learned at Harvard University’s notoriously inept economics department (profiled in the film Inside Job) where she graduated summa cum laude" - Patrick Bond on Can a Nigerian Squeeze the Poor for the World Bank? at http://www.zcommunications.org/can-a-nigerian-squeeze-the-poor-for-the-world-bank-by-patrick-bond
