Response to Original message
4. Here's my concern:
1. Timothy Franz Geithner...
* worked for Kissinger and Associates in Washington, D.C., for three years ( 95-98, I think)
* Member Council for Foreign Relations ( CFR)
* worked for IMF 2001-2003
* arranged sale of Bear Stearns
2. Larry Summers
* World Bank chief Economist 91-93
*long-time political mentor is Robert Rubin, CFR member
*ardent proponent of free trade and globalization
* signed off a memo stating developed countries ought to export more pollution to developing countries.
* long history of controversy and conflicts of interest resulting in financial gain, not supportive of progressive ideas.

I refer anyone interested to Wikipedia bios of both men.

These 2 men, along with Rubin, seem to be very much "more of the same" globalization/World Bank/IMF that has led to the current world financial crisis.
The same minds which contributed to the problem cannot solve it..
paraphrase of Einstein.
