World Bank Drops A Word

World Bank Drops A Word

The World Bank is getting a little forgetful.

This is only to be expected when an organisation is in its dotage.

The World Bank was created at the 1944 Bretton Woods Conference, along with three other institutions, including the International Monetary Fund (IMF).

The president of the World Bank is, traditionally, an American.

The World Bank and the IMF are both based in Washington, D.C., and work closely with each other.

Although many countries were represented at the Bretton Woods Conference, the United States and United Kingdom were the most powerful in attendance and dominated the negotiations.

Being sympathetic to systemic senility they have appointed a physician as their president.

Jim Yong Kim MD, PhD, also known as Kim Yong (born December 8, 1959), is an American physician and anthropologist who has served as the 12th President of the World Bank since July 1, 2012.

A global health leader, he was formerly the Chair of the Department of Global Health and Social Medicine at Harvard Medical School, and a co-founder and executive director of Partners In Health before serving as the President of Dartmouth College from 2009 to 2012, becoming the first Asian American president of an Ivy League institution.

However, even an in-house physician can’t cure systemic senility.

Take, for example, the word: Legislation.

The World Bank seems to have systematically dropped this word from their vocabulary.

This condition results in a condition known as Scary Systemic Senility.

Had the World Bank remembered the word Legislation then their Scary Systemic Senility would have been transformed into a Simply Sensible Statement.

Rapid, Climate-Informed Development Needed to Keep Climate Change Legislation from Pushing More than 100 Million People into Poverty by 2030

Therefore, whilst watching their cartoons [or reading their articles] please remember that after the phrase Climate Change they forgot to insert the word: Legislation.

World Bank – 8 Nov 2015

Which just goes to show how important it is to be aware of Scary Systemic Senility.
