Geithner is at heart a grifter, a petty con artist with the right manners and breeding to lie at the top echelons of American finance at a moment when the government and financial services industry needed someone to be the face of their multi-trillion dollar three card monte. He’s going to make his money, now that he’s done living his life of fantastic power after his upbringing of remarkable mysterious privilege. After reading this book and documenting lie after lie after lie, I’m convinced that there’s more here than just a self-serving corrupt official. There’s an entire culture, of figures at Treasury, the Federal Reserve, in the entire Democratic Party elite structure, and in the world of journalism, a culture in which Geithner is seen as some sort of role model.

  1. Interesting read. If you have a self-serving kleptocracy it’s inevitably going to infiltrate all positions of power, government and commercial.

  2. the same kind of financial business that made Mitt Romney a near billionaire.

    During Romney’s campaign his net worth was estimated to be perhaps as high as $250 mln. To cast that as “a near billionaire” strikes me as wilfull distortion.
