IMF-World Bank

The 180-plus countries that are members of the World Bank and the International Monetary Fund meet this weekend in Washington. Greeting them will be thousands of protestors. The protestors say the IMF and World Bank support corporate globalization. Officials at the Bank and Fund say that's not true. NPR's John Ydstie reports.
