ABSTRACT
The author reflects on the approach proposed by U.S. Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner to solve the financial crisis. He cites the failure of Geithner to say how he would bring the full force of the government to bear to strengthen the financial system. He claims that the approach of Geithner is based on the assumption that doing something quickly is more important than doing it right. He also notes that the plan of Geithner promises to spend up to another $2 trillion in the financial market rescue.
