Letter to IMF Executive Directors: Urgent recommendations on leadership selection reforms at the World Bank and the International Monetary Fund

June 7, 2007

Executive Directors
International Monetary Fund
World Bank
Washington, DC

Dear Executive Director,

The leadership crisis at the World Bank is undermining not only the World Bank but potentially the International Monetary Fund. The world’s nations -- not least the United States – have a vital interest in promoting the goals and sound management of these international institutions.

Paul Wolfowitz’s problems at the World Bank stem in part from a widespread perception that he disproportionately represents U.S. interests rather than objectives that command a global consensus. The root cause of that perception is an informal convention, established in the 1940s, that the U.S. government designates the president of the World Bank while European governments designate the IMF’s managing director.

In today’s world, that outdated convention should be abandoned and replaced with selection procedures that reflect two key principles: transparency of process, and competence of prospective leadership without regard to national origin. With such selection procedures, the heads of the institutions would be seen as representing the international community as a whole, not a single country or region. If the outdated convention is not abandoned, the leadership crisis at the World Bank is unlikely to be fully resolved with the resignation of Paul Wolfowitz.

We therefore call for timely adoption of reform of the selection procedures at both institutions. We recommend as an initial constructive step that European governments and the U.S. administration publicly state that the 1940s convention should be jettisoned and commit themselves now to reform selection procedures whenever new leadership choices have to be made for either the World Bank or the IMF.

Individuals have signed this letter in their personal capacities.

Institutions appear for professional identification only.

The May 14 letter on "Leadership Selection Reform at the World Bank and IMF" was drafted by Colin Bradford (Brookings), Ralph Bryant (Brookings) and Ted Truman (Peterson Institute for International Economics) acting in their personal capacities. They were aided by Nancy Birdsall (Center for Global Development), Jo Marie Griesgraber (New Rules for Global Finance Coalition and John Williamson (Peterson Institute for International Economics) in finalizing and distributing the document. Their thanks go especially to Jamie Baker (New Rules for Global Finance) who collected and organized the signatures and conveyed the letter to the Executive Directors and Alternates of the World Bank and IMF on behalf of all the signatories.
