Bono Seen on Short List For World Bank Chief

The World Bank’s mission is to fight poverty and improve the living standards of people in the developing world. The current head of the Bank, James Wolfensohn, is stepping down on June 1.

American Treasury Secretary John Snow said on Sunday that he would not rule out the idea of Irish singer Bono, an activist on debt relief and AIDS, making the short list of potential candidates to lead the World Bank.
