 WB runs out of money in 2 years?  Well, no problem.  All we have to do is go to Tel Aviv to look for it and get it all back.

 According to Wiki, the World Bank obtains it's funding from the sale of  AAA-rated bonds in the financial markets.  The income is generated from its lending activities, with its borrowings leveraging its own paid-in captial, as well the investment on its float. 

It also obtains the majority of it's funds from 40 donor countries who replenish the bank's fund every 3 years, and from loan repayments, which then becomes available for relending.

My opinion is that the US should stop giving them money, and for the bank to be abolished.
