Paul Wolfowitz's Sweetheart Deal

NYU economist Bill Easterly:
Pity Paul Wolfowitz: Every time he tries regime change, he triggers an insurrection.
Of course, this regime change was from within the confines of the World Bank. Wolfie apparently was trying "regime change" by withholding funds from countries that he, and the Bushies, didn't agree with.

Nobody at the World Bank like Wolfowitz, except his girlfriend, who got a $60k raise and his two cohorts from the Bush administration.

Does He Hear the World's Poor? Don't Bank on It. -
