The World Bank Group on Thursday said it ended publication of its "Doing Business" report on country investment climates after a probe of data irregularities cited "undue pressure" by top bank officials, including then-Chief Executive Kristalina Georgieva, to boost China's ranking in 2017

Lol that would imply they would have to make China look bad, if they were willing to manipulate data for them there’s no way in hell they’re doing that.

NGOs being unduly influenced to support propaganda efforts?! Shocking.

NGOs created by the US, controlled by the US toting the American narrative? Indeed shocking. Completely unexpected.

Two month old account repeatedly defending China and attacking USA. You get em, tiger!

Lol holy shit you weren’t kidding. That guy probably lives there and knows being a cuck is good for his career. Can’t blame him.

Ha! Nice

No joke at all. When I see odd comments like that l I’ll look at the users post history.

Look at the facts. Who are the current and ex-board members of World Bank ? Which countries have more shares? Who has run it/is currently running it? Who are the shareholders? Instead of looking up the facts, it’s easier to accuse anyone who speak up for the facts which happens to be on China side. Reaction? Dude has got to a paid China troll. It’s as if America never unduly influence the world order it created to further its interest. Sad. And no, I don’t give a shit about downvotes.

World bank may as well be an entity of the CCP at this point. There isn’t an African nation that hasn’t been sold out to China by this joke of a organisation. Together with the UN and WHO, it’s a giant clusterfuck of corruption

It’s really hard to fix data manipulation when the staff who are entrenched in the org are so politically motivated and the methodology is so vulnerable to it in the first place. Even without all this drama, the methodology is seriously flawed and not shown to be useful to people who actually do business in developing countries. https://www.cgdev.org/blog/world-banks-misleading-defense-doing-business-index At its best, the rankings are interesting to know but practically useless. At its worst, the measurement becomes a target in itself and political tool for the Bank and governments to use for their own gains. Don’t be too upset that it’s gone. Other than the people who used it to further their power and careers within the WB, I don’t think it will be that missed.

It’s good business pressuring people to turnover there morals.

Georgieva is small peanuts. She's taking the fall for someone higher...
