From the article:
>Romer told the newspaper the decline resulted from methodological changes, rather than a deterioration of Chile’s business environment, **and may have been the result of the World Bank staff’s political motivations**. He told the newspaper he would revise the reports.
Someone should make a research whether their programs and credits are net benefit for the countries-recipients and countries-donors, which countries benefited the most
And no word on what will happen to the guy cooking the reports, to disparage an administration that he doesn't like in his country. Must we assume that he will be asked to please not mislead international agencies and investors in the future?
The world bank also manipulates the global poverty rate by applying an arbitrary limit to what qualifies as poverty.
If you make more than $1.20 a day, you're not considered poor and everyone says "Yay Capitalism has lifted billions out of poverty!" without looking at the fine print.
That bubble is going to pop too hard
If only our governments and MSM would talk about these practices... we could get to the root of what truly ails us.
