Ah, the World Bank. The institution corporations use to get undeveloped nations with natural resources to become laden with debt.

Then the corporations offer to privatize public utilities. And to "develop" natural resources.

I gave this guy $5000 last week and I haven't heard back from him. At first I thought it was some kind of scam, but now it seems he's busy working on his bid.

Question 1: What is the difference between the World Bank and the International Monetary Fund

Question 2: Are either, or both of these institutions evil? And if so, why?

Question 3: Evilness notwithstanding, what do these institutions actually do for a living? Are they any damn good at it?
