The Bretton Woods Update will be published electronically in Spanish on a pilot basis in 2006. A text version of each Update in Spanish will be posted on the main Update page, and individual Spanish articles will be linked to their English equivalents. We look forward to your feedback to help us decide whether or not to continue with these translations. Please assist us by alerting your Spanish-speaking colleagues.
Originally created to help the poor escape poverty and deprivation, the World Bank became the most important advocate for the commercialised microcredit model. Yet, critics argued it undermined the chances of sustainable and equitable development to create a poverty trap of historic proportions.
While the World Development Report (WDR) 2018 on education has some redeeming features, it is part of the Bank's longstanding very narrow view of education, and is silent on education financing.
