U.N. Dispatch Discusses Trump Administration’s Expected Nominee For World Bank President

U.N. Dispatch: An American Has Always Led the World Bank… Until Now?
Mark Leon Goldberg, editor of U.N. Dispatch and host of the Global Dispatches Podcast, discusses the Trump administration’s expected nomination of David Malpass, an official at the U.S. Treasury Department, to serve as president of the World Bank. Goldberg also highlights a podcast in which he speaks with Scott Morris, senior fellow and director of the U.S. Development Policy Initiative at the Center for Global Development (CGD), “about the growing global discontentment over the United States’ lock on the job.” Goldberg writes, “[T]his time around, there is a good chance that World Bank member states will rally around a non-American” (2/5).
