NPR : Q&A: The World Bank at a Crossroads

NPR : Q&A: The World Bank at a Crossroads:
"The World Bank was founded in 1944, charged with the monumental task of eradicating global poverty. It offers loans to countries that might not otherwise get them. Since its inception, the bank has lent or given $400 billion.

Yet critics say the World Bank is a bloated, corrupt organization that has outlived its usefulness."
While not ground breaking, this one would be good for either an international finance or a financial institutions and markets class.
