Episode Description:

Episode 8 -
First, our panel discussion looks at the World Bank. What has the organization been up to in the post-Paul Wolfowitz era? Our guests walk us through a scandal involving the Bank, HIV and India; whether the Bank should assist in the global financial crisis; and looking at the current scandal involving computer breaches and Bank officials’ cozy relationships with corrupt vendors. Guests include Bea Edwards, International Reform Director of the Government Accountability Project, and Neil Watkins, National Coordinator of Jubilee USA.

Then, we sit down with Elaine Mittleman. In the 1970s, Mittleman parlayed an MBA from Carnegie Mellon University into a prestigious financial analyst position at Ford Motors in Detroit. Then, upon earning a law degree from the University of Michigan, this single mom — with years of auto industry expertise — was quickly recruited to the US Treasury Department in Washington in 1980 to work on the $1.2 billion Chrysler bailout – but she was apparently a bit too conscientious in performing her job. She’ll talk about her experience, and give her views on the current auto bailout.
