It is reassuring to hear Mr. Zoellick call for reform at the World Bank (finally). I just want to share my perception that the historic potential uneficiency stems from a two fold cause: governance and HR policies. As to the first one it has been made clear by Mr. zoellick that only empowering the interest and voices of the developing countries will shift the attitude and culture at the WB. As for the second, it is evident that there are far too many PHD employees at the Bank, promoting a more scholar approach to things than would be the case with a more standard private sector approach.. what i think we need at the WB is more people that can manage complexity and be focus on execution, but remaining truly accountable and responsible for the outcome. best
