Here’s what Paul Krugman has to say about the Geithner plan. Unfortunately, it rings true to me. I fear Barack Obama and America are in great hazard here. From Krugman:
The Obama administration is now completely wedded to the idea that there’s nothing fundamentally wrong with the financial system — that what we’re facing is the equivalent of a run on an essentially sound bank. As Tim Duy put it, there are no bad assets, only misunderstood assets. And if we get investors to understand that toxic waste is really, truly worth much more than anyone is willing to pay for it, all our problems will be solved.
