"Beyond Aid" - Speech by World Bank President Robert Zoellick

September 14, 2011 - World Bank Group President Robert B. Zoellick said the "time for muddling through is over" and all countries needed to be "responsible stakeholders" in the world economy; they need to act on today's problems while building for tomorrow's challenges; they need to solve national issues with an eye towards shaping a healthy international system. In a speech at George Washington University entitled "Beyond Aid", Zoellick said the world needs to recognize the new realities, unimaginable in 1944 when the World Bank was created, and move to a global system that integrates developed and developing countries, innovation, private investment, and the 50 percent of the world's population too often kept behind -- women.
