Wolfensohn takes a break
News||11 August 2000|update 18|
Bank President James Wolfensohn announced in mid-July that he was taking a six week sabbatical. He told the Financial Times (14/7/00) he was "exhausted" and planned to go walking and fishing to "try to work out how I'm going to take on the challenge of the next five years." The paper commented that among the factors which may have prompted him to take time off were the controversies over the China Western Poverty Project and the resignation of Ravi Kanbur as World Development Report lead author.
