    This is the first time I read this and it gives insight into what an idiot Turbo Timmy is.

    When Barack Obama announced his champion to rescue the world from economic ruin, it was the first time most Americans had ever heard the name Tim Geithner.
    In a speech to a closed gathering at the Lowy Institute in Sydney on Thursday, Paul Keating gave a starkly different account of Geithner's record in handling the Asian crisis: "Tim Geithner was the Treasury line officer who wrote the IMF [International Monetary Fund] program for Indonesia in 1997-98, which was to apply current account solutions to a capital account crisis."

    In other words, Geithner fundamentally misdiagnosed the problem. And his misdiagnosis led to a dreadfully wrong prescription.
    Then, when he announced his much-anticipated plan to rescue the US banking system, share prices slumped by 4 per cent immediately and a new round of weakness in the financial sector began. The pundits turned savagely against him: "So much for the saviour-based economy," wrote Maureen Dowd of The New York Times. Senator Shelby changed his mind: "Aggravating economic problems by contributing to marketplace uncertainty about what steps the Government will take - is that what this is?" he fumed.

    US bank stocks weakened so much that nationalisation seems to be the only remaining option to put them quickly out of their misery.
    Very good information and detail, read it all.

    This clown doesn't have a clue!

    He's a typical liberal much like liberal college professors (I realize these are synonyms now). He confuses his theoritical "expertise" with something useful like pragmatism and experience.
    Education without values, as useful as it is, seems rather to make man a more clever devil.

    Do not ever say that the desire to "do good" by force is a good motive. Neither power-lust nor stupidity are good motives. (Are you listening Barry)?:mad:
