What a difference a year makes! Let’s review: Here’s what Paul Wolfowitz said about ending corruption at the World Bank in early 2006, about 14 months before news of his very own corruption scandal broke.
World Bank President Paul Wolfowitz has sworn to crack down on corruption by governments and officials in developing world nations where the bank operates.
He has also promised to examine any irregularities within the bank itself, vowing to tackle “difficult issues.”
Speaking to employees worldwide, Mr. Wolfowitz said the bank had to move “more decisively and energetically.”
