Wolfensohn concluded that the agenda of the conference reflects changes in the world, as well as within the World Bank, by extending the development debate to issues such as geography, political economy, and ethnic conflicts-issues that both incorporate and extend beyond economics. Greater knowledge about these issues is essential to the results that we all want to achieve. In his opening address Joseph E. Stiglitz echoed one of the themes struck by President Wolfensohn, namely the need for the Bank, and the development community more generally, to employ new and better models as well as more instruments to pursue a broader agenda than has been pursued in the past.
