When the ship is foundering, the crew takes to the lifeboats, but not the rats too. Is this a signal of some sort? Former Naval Person, Islander <_<

Gee, I don't know, but I do find it intriguing that Geithner was in charge of the New York Fed during the Bear Stearns and Lehman Brothers collapse, wasn't he?

Good riddance...the sooner the better.

It's "The Circle Of Life" as he heads to GS! :lol: :o <_< :angry:

Instead of prison.

He paid some of the taxes after being audited by the Internal Revenue Service and didn’t pay the rest until it was clear that he would be nominated for the Treasury post, according to the Senate Finance Committee.

Let me or you try that one.

I fail to understand how a private bank CEO like Dimon is being allowed to work for New York Fed. Both are conflicting positions. Although we know that the Feds stoop to the bank, this one is too direct. I hadn't voiced this opinion because I think we never had a discussion on this topic.

Nice joke Dr SP, you should also start talking about public service and national interests, and the bankers in the same sentence... Those are the best... Alright maybe, Larry Summers and Harvard economics... I cannot decide which one is more hilarious... After all, none of them can be true, tell me they aren't...
