Apparently being established after the first world war, this "world Bank" is designed to prevent poverty (....!! ..).. But get this... Considering that I have heard very little from this world bank over the years, and only becoming known to me in recent times, It has sparked my curiosity as to what exactly this world bank is, and what does it actually do? Who decided that they are the governing body of whatever it is they are apparently to govern, and why are they immune to all legal consequences, except the united states of America? (what makes them so special?) How does the IMF (International Monetary Fund) fit into all of this?
