At the boards of governors of the World Bank and the IMF meet between October 20th and 22nd in Washington to discuss the work of both institutions, it is a good time to reflect on the evolution of the World Bank Group.

Ray Suarez, from the Public Radio International, looks at the lessons learned from the past 60 years and the bank's work today. The 50-minute program features Francois Bourguignon, the bank's chief economist, and William Easterly, its chief critic.
