World Bank president Robert Zoellick is currently speaking live on Reuters Newsmaker, and is discussing numerous topics related to the future of the monetary system, notable among them most likely being the fate of the dollar, and whether or not he still stand behind his recent statement that a return to the gold standard is needed for the world.
Here are some queries already lined up in the queue for Zoellick:
- Is it possible for the World Bank to be more proactive in its initiatives and less reactionary as the globe deals with a growing maturity with respect to the rights of individuals?
- Can and should the Bank define its goals and mission in 2011 in a way that makes it more approachable by the average person? No one on this planet is unaffected by the work of those associated with the World Bank and it would seem this is clearly evident by what has occurred in the Middle East.
- What do you think about the possibility that there will be a new currency soon? If so, will that be the start of the biggest commercial crisis in the history of the U.S.? And, if so, what are the consequences for the people?
- What is [the World Bank] doing to help prevent the next global financial meltdown?
