The World Bank is an international financial institution that provides loans to developing countries for capital programs.

(it's not really a bank, it's just called that; don't know why)
the goal of the world bank is...to promote foreign investment, international trade and facilitate capital investment.

the man's expertise is in healthcare...

undoubtably one of the main reasons obama chose him is, he's as qualified to head the world bank as obama is to be president.

We should look forward to years 7 and 8 of his reign. We have seen nothing yet and by the time we feel it, he will be in his estate for life on the Hawaii beach.
