Part 7 of a series on how the globalized world economy affects ordinary people.

"James D. Wolfensohn is one of the business worlds most successful and unconventional figures an ex-pat Aussie and former World Bank President who has gone on to channel his personal success into the struggle against poverty. In this illuminating autobiography, co-written with award-winning journalist, Jill Margo, Wolfensohn recounts his early life in Sydney; climbing the ladder as a prominent banker in London and then New York; his pursuits as an Olympic fencer and a skilled cellist; and his astounding ten-year tenure as President of the World Bank from 1995 to 2005. A blunt, incisive and colourful figure, Wolfensohn earned a reputation for brilliant and effective leadership in both the private and non-profit sectors, and here for the first time speaks candidly about the anti-Semitism he faced as a Jew in the UK merchant banking world, what its like to be an unknown Aussie on the world financial stage, and just how he achieved his dizzying success.
