Martin Wolf interviews Tim Geithner

I see Geithner as quintessentially American – an optimist who wants to make things work, imbued with great belief in his country. The world is lucky that Obama turned to him. It is, however, unlikely that either man will ever get popular credit for it.

Martin Wolf, “Lunch with the FT: Tim Geithner“, Financial Times, 16 May 2014.

Martin Wolf has known Timothy Geithner, the former US Treasury secretary, “since the mid-1990s, when he was a young civil servant working for Lawrence Summers at the US Treasury department. (Summers was himself Treasury secretary, in the last year and half of the Clinton administration.)”

Geithner’s book Stress Test: Reflections on Financial Crises was published recently by Random House Business.
