If you then garnish that with political leaders running these global institutions, we get a power Map that makes no sense. Less amazing work in narrow ranges.<BR/><BR/>I dont think Blair should even contemplate it. <BR/>psh!The Pseudo-Independenthttp://www.blogger.com/profile/01992276117548193938[email protected]tag:blogger.com,1999:blog-8686769.post-8480556035427879542007-05-18T09:39:00.000+01:002007-05-18T09:39:00.000+01:00seen this?http://news.uk.msn.com/Article.aspx?cp-d...seen this?<BR/><BR/>http://news.uk.msn.com/Article.aspx?cp-documentid=4961775<BR/><BR/>'Blair in frame at World Bank'Anonymous[email protected]tag:blogger.com,1999:blog-8686769.post-11919454734696814532007-05-18T08:25:00.000+01:002007-05-18T08:25:00.000+01:00"...

What I've learnt from my dissertation is that international institutions are EXTREMELY difficult to reform(and the UN is the worst of them all!). I agree that the World Bank needs reform. However, that mighty, albeit extremely unjust, institution was built (almost literally) by the US, just like the UN. And as long as the US continues to be a hegemonic power, it will continue to act unilaterally in the affairs of these institutions. It is nothing but cocktail of realpolitiks and national interest, garnished with a little abit of bloody capitalism!<BR/><BR/>Abt Wolfowitz, there is more to it than meets the eye and believe me, he is not leaving solely for the special treatmet of his girlfriend in the throes of passion. He messed with the wrong person and he was blackmailed, just like other important figures that I've refused to name.Confessions of a moody crabhttp://www.blogger.com/profile/09389946465270541951[email protected]
