Summers or Volcker ? … Who do you think will wear a more responsible cap in this crumpled economic carnage
You think they will switch Bernanke?
Why the hell is an 80 year old guy being mentioned for Treasury Secretary? Especially one who enacted some terrible policies. Time for some new blood. …I bet he isn’t even a CFA
there was a big article in Fortune as recently as 9/22 about HF manager Thomas Steyer being a candidate. haven’t heard a word about him since. guess his HF is busy these days. http://money.cnn.com/2008/09/17/news/newsmakers/lashinsky_steyer.fortune/index.htm
Summers would be a solid choice if the left didn’t despise him for his comments on the math/science aptitude of women. Volker has credibility, but the guy is ancient. Obama needs someone that isn’t going to spook Wall St., someone like Rubin or Summers makes sense.
