The Disruptive Voice, episode 13: The capabilities and limitations of the World Bank with Efosa Ojomo (MBA 2015)
The World Bank was founded in 1944 to facilitate post-war Reconstruction and today has grown to encompass five affiliated institutions dedicated to eradicating poverty worldwide. In this episode of the Disruptive Voice, senior researcher Efosa Ojomo uses the theories of BSSE to describe how the very same structures that allow the World Bank to have its extraordinary reach also constrain it from being able to fund or support other types of initiatives.
Theories used in this episode: RPP’s, Disruption theory
Efosa also writes regularly for the World Bank’s blog, Africa Can End Poverty. Check out some of his recent posts:
