Bono for World Bank?

From Rueters

Could the only person ever nominated for an Oscar, a Grammy, a Golden Globe and the Nobel Peace Prize now take over at the World Bank?

On Friday, the Los Angeles Times devoted its lead editorial to the proposition that Bono, the frontman of Irish rock band U2, "should be named the next president of the World Bank".

I say get rid of the world bank altogether. The entire financial system is a complete sham.

I have so much respect and admiration for Bono. He is definately someone to look up to.

I don't agree with the World Bank's ways nor the IMF's. Read up what they have done in history and how they have done it. Most would disagree with their ways.
