• Do World Bank Loans Help Poor Countries or Aggravate Poverty? Int. Monetary Fund (2004)

    The World Bank has long been criticized by non-governmental organizations, such as the indigenous rights group Survival International, and academics. About the book: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/0143036793/ref=as_li_tl?ie=UTF8&camp=1789&creative=9325&creativeASIN=0143036793&linkCode=as2&tag=tra0c7-20&linkId=a2c1ae66cde198cfa5458c2e1bd3bfcb This included its former Chief Economist Joseph Stiglitz, Henry Hazlitt and Ludwig Von Mises. Henry Hazlitt argued that the World Bank along with the monetary system it was designed within would promote world inflation and "a world in which international trade is State-dominated" when they were being advocated.

    For men and women throughout the developing world, the chance to run a business or get a good job can offer a way out of poverty. In almost all developing countries, most new jobs are created by the private sector. But, creating the kind of environment to support this opportunity requires wide-ranging efforts. The challenge for development is to build a more inclusive and sustainable private sector while overcoming poverty, enhancing growth with care for the environment, and creating opportunity, particularly for the world's poor.

Under the loan agreements, the Uzbek government is required to comply with laws prohibiting forced and child labor, and the World Bank can suspend the loans if there is credible evidence of violations. The Uzbek government forced students, teachers, medical workers, other government employees, private-sector employees, and sometimes children to harvest cotton in 2015 and 2016, as well as to weed the fields and plant cotton in the spring of 2016. The government has threatened to fire people, stop welfare payments, and suspend or expel students if they refuse to work in the cotton fields.

The World Bank has long been criticized by non-governmental organizations, such as the indigenous rights group Survival International, and academics. About the book: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/0143036793/ref=as_li_tl?ie=UTF8&camp=1789&creative=9325&creativeASIN=0143036793&linkCode=as2&tag=tra0c7-20&linkId=a2c1ae66cde198cfa5458c2e1bd3bfcb This included its former Chief Economist Joseph Stiglitz, Henry Hazlitt and Ludwig Von Mises. Henry Hazlitt argued that the World Bank along with the monetary system it was designed within would promote world inflation and "a world in which international trade is State-dominated" when they were being advocated. Stiglitz argued that the so-called free market reform policies which the Bank advocates are often harmful to economic development if implemented badly, too quickly ("shock therapy"), in the wrong sequence or in weak, uncompetitive economies. One of the strongest criticisms of the World Bank has been the way in which it is governed. While the World Bank represents 188 countries, it is run by a small number of economically powerful countries. These countries (which also provide most of the institution's funding) choose the leadership and senior management of the World Bank, and so their interests dominate the bank. Titus Alexander argues that the unequal voting power of western countries and the World Bank's role in developing countries makes it similar to the South African Development Bank under apartheid, and therefore a pillar of global apartheid. In the 1990s, the World Bank and the IMF forged the Washington Consensus, policies which included deregulation and liberalization of markets, privatization and the downscaling of government. Though the Washington Consensus was conceived as a policy that would best promote development, it was criticized for ignoring equity, employment and how reforms like privatization were carried out. Joseph Stiglitz argued that the Washington Consensus placed too much emphasis on the growth of GDP, and not enough on the permanence of growth or on whether growth contributed to better living standards. The United States Senate Committee on Foreign Relations report criticized the World Bank and other international financial institutions for focusing too much "on issuing loans rather than on achieving concrete development results within a finite period of time" and called on the institution to "strengthen anti-corruption efforts". Criticism of the World Bank often takes the form of protesting as seen in recent events such as the World Bank Oslo 2002 Protests, the October Rebellion, and the Battle of Seattle. Such demonstrations have occurred all over the world, even amongst the Brazilian Kayapo people. Another source of criticism has been the tradition of having an American head the bank, implemented because the United States provides the majority of World Bank funding. "When economists from the World Bank visit poor countries to dispense cash and advice," observed The Economist, as Jim Yong Kim said in 2012, "they routinely tell governments to reject cronyism and fill each important job with the best candidate available. It is good advice. The World Bank should take it." Jim Yong Kim is the most recently appointed president of the World Bank. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/World_bank The role of the Bretton Woods institutions has been controversial since the late Cold War period, due to claims that the IMF policy makers supported military dictatorships friendly to American and European corporations and other anti-communist regimes. Critics also claim that the IMF is generally apathetic or hostile to their views of human rights, and labour rights. The controversy has helped spark the Anti-globalization movement. Arguments in favour of the IMF say that economic stability is a precursor to democracy; however, critics highlight various examples in which democratised countries fell after receiving IMF loans. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/IMF

Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Wednesday asked secretaries at the Centre and chief secretaries in the state to analyse the World Bank's Ease of Doing Business Report, where India ranked a poor 130th among 190 countries, and suggest areas of improvement. Modi's message to top officials came during his monthly interaction through the Pragati platform, meant to remove hurdles and speed up implementation. It came a day after the World Bank released the annual rankings, generating protests from the government about the multilateral agency's failure to factor in at least a dozen reform initiatives.

The World Bank is funding half a billion dollars in agricultural projects linked to forced and child labor in Uzbekistan. Under the loan agreements, the Uzbek government is required to comply with laws prohibiting forced and child labor, and the World Bank can suspend the loans if there is credible evidence of violations. The Uzbek government forced students, teachers, medical workers, other government employees, private-sector employees, and sometimes children to harvest cotton in 2015 and 2016, as well as to weed the fields and plant cotton in the spring of 2016. The government has threatened to fire people, stop welfare payments, and suspend or expel students if they refuse to work in the cotton fields.

Britain's exit from the European Union has led to "economic uncertainty which is not good but India seems to be doing quite well," World Bank President Jim Yong Kim has told NDTV in his first comments since Brexit. In an exclusive interview to NDTV, Dr Kim, who met Prime Minister Narendra Modi earlier today in Delhi, said he was concerned by the uncertainty in the world economy. "The uncertainty has led to fluctuations in currency, we see that UK has been downgraded two notches by one of the ratings agencies and this is very serious...to go down two notches at the same time. I am concerned, but unfortunately, right now we don't know which direction it's going to go." He also cautioned countries on turning "inward", saying multilateralism is critical. "Multilateralism is one of the great hopes for peace and prosperity. If you want to tackle inequality, you cannot have closed borders," he said. Dr Kim, however, held out hope for India, predicting "slightly higher growth" next year. He said: "India seems to be doing quite well. India has been growing rapidly. Its connections to UK is of course very strong but economically there was a one-day blip in the stock market but then now things have now seemed to calmed down. So it is good news for India." Asked on GDP numbers, which some economists have questioned, Dr Kim said: "We are as close to these numbers as anyone and this is not an exact science, and there is no physics in this. There are many people who question China's growth numbers. There are many people who question everybody's growth numbers. This is not a mathematical, scientific, exact snapshot. It is taking many indicators and then in a consistent way doing the best we can to make an estimate." On the exit of Reserve Bank of India (RBI) Chief Raghuram Rajan, the World Bank Chief said he did not believe it would impact India's policy. "I think both Raghu and PM Modi and the government have been communicating very effectively about it. He was a great central bank governor, tremendously respected. Respected as an academic before he came to Reserve Bank and then respected in how clearly he communicated in the things that he did. What I have heard from talking to PM Modi and members of his team is there is not going to be much of a change. They are going to continue to have independent central bank governor, an independent central bank...and the policies that have led to good outcomes so far economically will continue." The World Bank Chief had huge praise for the prime minister as he said: "PM Modi has set some incredibly difficult targets for his team and what I have seen is that along with us there is just an all-out effort to reach those targets. A couple of examples, the cleaning up of the Ganga, this is a huge project and they are moving much faster than I thought they ever would be able to. Swachh Bharat is one of the most important programs for India, not just for sanitation but for the health of young children for example, that's moving much more quickly than we had ever thought."
