Submission Statement: An internal audit found that top officials in the World Bank, including the Chief Executive and the President, pressured their staff to alter the algorithm to give China a higher score in their "Doing Business" report. The "Doing Business" report grades countries' economies based on how easy it is to start a business, regulations that affect running a business, etc. It's getting zero attention on reddit's major subs, of course. [Someone submitted it on worldnews](https://www.reddit.com/r/worldnews/comments/ppi7d2/the_world_bank_group_on_thursday_said_it_ended/), but it was flagged and removed as "Not Appropriate Subreddit"

The problem with this is instead of just publishing the correct list they cancel it altogether basically giving China a win anyway.
