Publication date: May 2005
Balancing the Development Agenda examines the evolution of the World Bank and its operations during the presidency of James Wolfensohn. It examines the modernization of this global economic institution which is now focused on home-grown development planning where borrowing countries are in the “driver’s seat” of their own development. It takes a closer look at the major development challenges addressed by the Bank during the past decade such as debt relief, corruption, and HIV/AIDS and provides a timeline of events that have shaped the Bank into the institution it is today. Readers with an interest in the World Bank and in international development will find this a fascinating account of the Bank’s transformation under the guidance of James Wolfensohn.
