Since the World

its policy reports have never been downloaded even once (!) and only 13 percent
of policy reports were downloaded at least 250 times, a fascinating debate on
the purpos...

My take on the 'World Bank PDF' debate: 

[“How is it possible that we can go through an entire cycle of a product production process without probing with the relevant communities outside our organizations whether the questions we ask resonate with the audience that is supposed to benefit from them?”]
