my candidate is Amartya Sen


PM Tony Blair or Mohammed Yunus.


Kemal abi!


What about Gobind Nankani?


The right profile is Simon Johnson. Oh, wait, he is taken

Dan Olner

What, he's only a tiny bit Turkish...? :)


Kostas Simitis;p


Most likely the new president will have to have Wolf in his/her name. Frankly, though, even if we can get a non-Wolf, I don't think Angelina Jolie is a good candidate. Much better to go with someone like Salma Hayek, who is famous for her Austrian-school economics.


I would go with Arminio Fraga, the outstanding brazilian economist...well, he maybe is more suitable for the IMF.


Paul Volcker, although he's getting on in years. Janet Yellen? I'll second Yunus.


Amartya Sen


I will follow Joe Stiglitz and vote for Arminio Fraga.


Realistically, it will still be an American, won't it? Is that likely to change?


Yes, they probably have to be American.

My guess is Stanley Fischer.


Let us hope that it wo'nt be John Bolton.


What about William Easterly ?

He has the capacities to do the job: lots of field knowledge, has been in the institution for a long time, he's an aknowledged theorist of developpement, too.

no ?

I like these articles , democratic countries formulate policies are both team and the interests of the people of power, but the undemocratic countries rarely for the interests of the people

Many places and centers offer business and trade promotions to both buyers and supplier.What about the differences in skill intensities across industries? The job losses in the relatively unskilled-labor intensive battery industry should have little effect on the relatively skilled-labor intensive machinery
