World Bank President Paul Wolfowitz has to present his defense to the Bank board by close of business tomorrow [Friday]. He may resign (or be told he’s effectively fired) then or late that evening (sneaking past the news cycle). . .or may just decide to do nothing and leave town for a bit.
Reports are that he still plans to fly to Slovenia on Wednesday, May 17th to present an essay competition prize.
Guess the topic.
That’s right. . .Anti-corruption!

Ed. Note: I really, really, really liked this quick game snapshot of players and their views in the Wolfowitz Battle that started with a question from Martin Wolf and led Brad DeLong to pen a clever response.
