Gallagher in Bloomberg on the Next World Bank President

Kevin Gallagher, Director of the Global Development Policy (GDP) Center and Professor of Global Development Policy at the Frederick S. Pardee School of Global Studies, was interviewed for an article exploring potential candidates for President of the World Bank. 

Gallagher was quoted in a January 15, 2019 article in Bloomberg entitled “Trump Seeks World Bank Candidate Who Can Retain U.S. Grip, Sources Say.

From the text of the article:

But the rising clout of countries such as China and India is driving support for a non-American candidate. “We really need to break the gentleman’s agreement between Europe and the United States,” said Kevin Gallagher, professor of global development policy at Boston University. “Whoever the next person is needs to have global legitimacy.”

Gallagher currently serves as co-chair of the T-20 Argentina task force on “An International Financial Architecture for Stability and Development” to advise the G-20 and its members on financial infrastructure and monetary policy globally. He also served on the U.S. Department of State’s Investment Subcommittee of the Advisory Committee on International Economic Policy and the International Investment Division of the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development.  He has served as a visiting or adjunct professor at the Paul Nitze School for Advanced International Studies at Johns Hopkins University, the Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy, Tufts University; El Colegio de Mexico in Mexico; Tsinghua University in China; and the Center for State and Society in Argentina. You can follow him on Twitter @KevinPGallagher.
