Tim Geithner in One Sentance

We've talked a lot about Tim Geithner's faults on this blog, but one quote in this massive (and pretty fucking damning) NY Times piece perfectly explains my worries:
“I don’t think that Tim Geithner was motivated by anything other than concern to get the financial system working again,” Mr. Stiglitz said. “But I think that mindsets can be shaped by people you associate with, and you come to think that what’s good for Wall Street is good for America.”
Read the whole piece if you have the stomach, but if you were worried about Geithner's ties to wall street execs before, it sure won't calm any of your fears.
