I've been reading Susskind's book "Confidence Men". Pretty interesting read, particularly the part about Volcker wanting to let the banks fail and pick up the pieces but was vetoed by O and his henchmen, particularly Geithner.|
Another interesting point he makes is that Obama fired Rick Waggoner without ever even meeting him. It was a condition of the bailout. However he shielded all the bankers, never demanded a single replacement and even shielded them from criticism and has defended their criminal behavior.
Have no idea of the accuracy of the book but it's pretty entertaining and Geithner is surely the most corrupt little prick in DC.
