On Dec. 2, students in the Washington Program were hosted at the World Bank by Hasan Tuluy P’08, vice president for human resources. At lunch Mr. Tuluy briefed the group on the history, mission, organization, and strategy of the bank. Drawing on his experience as a development economist, he also discussed careers in the field and the value of a liberal arts education.

World Bank economist Alan Gelb gave a presentation about the causes of the world economic crisis, its effects on different regions of the world, and short and long term prospects for recovery.
