Head of the World Bank[edit]

I'm confused about the head of the World Bank. Is it normally a citizen of the U.S. or is it someone who is highly sponsored and backed by the U.S? I know the head of the IMF is normally a European. This notion was challenged in the most recent election of World Bank President. #http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-africa-17733933MrNiceGuy1113 (talk) 16:20, 25 April 2012 (UTC)

It's just a convention; it's not written in stone. There's a good article here. bobrayner (talk) 16:31, 25 April 2012 (UTC)

Cattle was the first international currency[edit]

Croatian writer Giancarlo Kravar: Cattle was the first international currency, and livestock is the oldest form of money, known since 9000years BC. The Latin name for money pecus means cattle. In parts of Africa, livestock are still used as currency. 78.2.99.53 (talk) 10:56, 7 July 2012 (UTC)

This has nothing to do with the World Bank. John Shandy`talk 00:49, 2 August 2012 (UTC)

Open Knowledge Repository[edit]

The World Bank's Open Knowledge Repository of its development research outputs and knowledge products seems worthy of mention, but no section in this article is a natural fit. What do you think? Or should mention of it be reserved for an open access-related article? --Litjade (talk) 21:02, 1 September 2013 (UTC)
