ngân hàng thế giới mất thêm một chuyên gia kinh tế -----
When autocratic (chuyên quyền), oil-rich nations enjoy a windfall from higher crude prices (giá dầu thô cao hơn), where does the money go? One place to look is Swiss bank accounts (tài khoản ngân hàng). Sure enough, an increase in oil prices is followed by a spike in deposits held by these countries in financial havens, according to a 2017 paper by Jorgen Juel Andersen of Norwegian Business School, Niels Johannesen of the University of Copenhagen and their co-authors.
When Mr Johannesen presented this result at the World Bank in 2015, the audience included Bob Rijkers, a member of the bank’s research group. The two of them joined forces with Mr Andersen to investigate if something similar happened after another kind of windfall: infusions of aid from foreign donors (chuyển viện trợ từ các nhà tài trợ nước ngoài). (Their conclusion was dispiriting (làm nản lòng). World Bank payouts to 22 aid-dependent countries during 1990-2010 were followed by a jump in their deposits in foreign financial havens. The leaks averaged about 5% of the bank’s aid to these countries.
It seems the World Bank would not publish the paper — the reasons are disputed — and Goldberg resigned her post as chief economist — again the reasons are disputed.
