    His nationality isn't important, its his policies that will matter to the world's poorest people...

    Being racist again I see.

    Nothing in the article mentions his ethnicity.

    As an economist of course he will not have 'policies'. That would mean him making his mind up and taking responsibilty for his decisions: that will NEVER happen.

    #3 I take it you mean @2? I didn't mention his “ethnicity” either - just his nationality, which is the headline... Nice dose of cynicism about World Bank ecoomists though...
