Wolfowitz Fate To Be Decided Soon
The World Bank will soon decide if they will fire Paul Wolfowitz. The 24 directers met Thursday. The subject was whether or not to fire Wolfowitz.
Meanwhile, former World Bank executives are telling Wolfowitz he should resign. Germany is giving Wolfowitz the same message. When an entire country tells someone to quit that truly is a bad sign.
Wolfowitz got into troble for giving his girlfriend Shaha Riza a raise. Riza currently makes $193,000 today. By 2010, she will make $245,000. Since she works for the World Bank the money is tax-free. Wolfowitz was advised that giving Riza would be a conflict of interest. That didn't stop him.
Dan Drezner and Matt Yglesias have an interesting discussion on Wolfowitz on Bloggingheads.tv.
