Geithner Spends 20 Minutes Not Answering The Question

Recommended Posts


For the most part, Geithner either totally avoids answering the question or he sets up a straw man argument. For example, rather than actually addressing the revolving door between the US government (especially the Treasury Department) and Goldman Sachs (GS) he reiterates how important it is that civil servants be impartial and capable. And when asked about the recent campaign to audit the Federal Reserve, he asserts that we need to keep politics out of monetary policy.

None of these answers are actual answers. He substitutes the real issue with his own fantasies and chooses to addresses questions which are not asked. If anything, he missed his true calling as a shrewd politician. He somehow even manages to completely avoid answering the questions regarding his repeated and flagrant inability to pay his taxes from 2001 to 2004.
