ABSTRACT
This article discusses the appointment of U.S. Deputy Secretary of Defense Paul Wolfowitz to the presidency of the World Bank. Eleven years ago, when the World Bank celebrated its fiftieth birthday, it was not entirely clear that it would survive until its sixtieth. But the Bank has done more than merely survive. Over the course of the past decade, it has proved its continuing relevance. The Bank weathered the anti-globalization protests of 1999-2000 and is now enjoying a rare moment of popular support. Which is one reason the recent appointment of Paul Wolfowitz to head the Bank has drawn such groans from both inside and outside the institution. Some fear Wolfowitz's presidency will once again put the Bank in the crosshairs of the radical left. Others worry his role in the unpopular Iraq war will make it hard for him to win support for the Bank's policies among both donor governments and client states.
