The author discusses the interest of China in the proceedings to search for the successor of World Bank (WB) president Robert Zoellick. He criticizes the plan of China to show that its veto has some weight in the selection. He examines the prediction of insiders that another American will be appointed to the post and continue the 66-year control of the WB by the U.S. He explains the advantages of having China at the helm of the WB.
