unfortunatly i dont have subscriptions to either of these, but the head line is just so wacked on its own, who cares what is inside the article.

did anyone stop to check how badly she screwed up chile's economy?

i am not convinced she can balance check book, let alone an economy or something as big as the world bank. the woman that bluntly told the country she does not care about growth.

good news is, i realy don't see the powers that be having someone so far left run the world bank in the current political climate.

The President of the World Bank has traditionally been a US citizen. That was the agreement when it was set up. No idea if that is a legal requirement or a simpler agreement. The President stepping down is Korean-American. As things stand, Bachelet doesn't qualify by nationality let alone anything else.

Always can change the rules and who better to be in that position if TPTB know that the music stops soon, put in a puppet to take the fall and not one of their more valuable "own".

She won't get it she can't communicate her english is horrible, that's the bank's primary language........and as pointed out wrong background, she's a doctor not an business type.....you want to see a business fail, put a doctor in charge.

If you want to see a business (or a country) fail, put a left-wing politician in charge. Bachelet's medical qualifications are still in doubt.

Trepadora Consumada is her best qualification.

Well, it seems the other extreme is more likely at the World Bank, If Trump appoints a Trumpet.

As entertaining as the idea is of Bachelet running the World Bank, I just can not see Trump taking a shine to Bachelet sufficient to install her in the World Bank.
