    Half the people in this forum could have done a better job.

    Geithner had the benefit of excellent advice from the likes of Krugman and others. He chose to ignore it, including Krugmans call for a larger stimulus. Geithner chose to line his own pockets instead with big tax cuts for the wealthy.

    So, no, Krugman isn't praising Geithner, please stop making it seem as though he is.  That's a stale, old DLC trick.

      would've asked Geithner and Summers types for advice.
