Questions for World Bank President Robert Zoellick

April 5, 2011

We already have some questions for World Bank President Robert Zoellick from our readers for his live video interview with Reuters at 2:15 p.m. today.

In response to the “Ask your questions” post, here are some queries already lined up in the queue for Zoellick:

  • Is it possible for the World Bank to be more proactive in its initiatives and less reactionary as the globe deals with a growing maturity with respect to the rights of individuals?
  • Can and should the Bank define its goals and mission in 2011 in a way that makes it more approachable by the average person? No one on this planet is unaffected by the work of those associated with the World Bank and it would seem this is clearly evident by what has occurred in the Middle East.
  • What do you think about the possibility that there will be a new currency soon? If so, will that be the start of the biggest commercial crisis in the history of  the U.S.? And, if so, what are the consequences for the people?
  • What is [the World Bank] doing to help prevent the next global financial meltdown?

Please keep writing in with your questions or post them on twitter @trnewsmaker.

Can the Bretton Woods Institutions fulfill their mandate in averting a currency war if the US retaliates against staff who tell it like it is?
