I am not a fan of former U.S. Treasury Secretary Timothy F. Geithner.
Tell-all books are a tradition in Washington. Literary merit is not important, but titillating insider detail is, and sometimes certain books contain islands of truth in a sea deep with self-congratulations.
Former Treasury Secretary Timothy F. Geithner (GYT'-nur) won't be the only famous person onstage for his upcoming book tour.
Former U.S. Treasury Secretary Timothy F. Geithner's (GYT'-nurz) memoir has a title, "Stress Test," and a release date, May 13.
Tim Geithner is jumping from U.S. Treasury Secretary to the Council on Foreign Relations, as distinguished fellow based in New York, starting later this month.
President Obama officially nominated White House Chief of Staff Jack Lew on Thursday to replace departing Treasury Secretary Timothy F. Geithner, calling his key aide a man of great integrity who has his "complete trust."
The top Republican on the Senate Budget Committee will lead a charge to try to block White House Chief of Staff Jack Lew's prospective nomination to become Treasury secretary.
President Obama will begin his second term with a much different leadership team than his first four years, with several of the key chairs in his Cabinet room yet to be filled.
Treasury Secretary Timothy F. Geithner did what Washingtonians call the "full Ginsburg" on Sunday. The term refers to Monica Lewinsky's lawyer, William H. Ginsburg, who was the first to appear on all five network Sunday interview shows in one day.
While Treasury Secretary Timothy F. Geithner is still optimistic a deal to avoid falling off the "fiscal cliff" will be worked out before critical year-end deadlines, House Speaker John A. Boehner said Sunday that talks with the administration are going nowhere and accused President Obama of trying to ram through the White House plan without negotiating in good faith.
President Obama sent his Treasury Secretary, Timothy F. Geithner, to Capitol Hill on Thursday to make Republicans an offer they could only refuse. The administration's proposed deal consisted of $1.6 trillion in new taxes, no spending cuts, a limitless debt ceiling and a multiyear stimulus plan that opened with a $50 billion binge just for 2013. Mr. Geithner's only concession in the closed-door meeting was a vague promise to work toward $400 billion in Medicare savings in the future -- but nothing up front. The proposition was so pathetic that Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell laughed out loud, and House Speaker John A. Boehner declared "a stalemate."
After meeting with Treasury Secretary Timothy F. Geithner, House Speaker John A. Boehner says Democrats still haven't recommended cuts to government benefit programs as part of a deal to avoid the so-called fiscal cliff.
President Obama took a few days after the election to regroup, play some golf and let his re-election victory sink in, but that didn't slow Washington speculation about the expected reshuffling of his Cabinet.
How much drama can take place in boardrooms and on intra-agency phone conferences? Sheila Bair aims to find out in her financial-crisis memoir, "Bull by the Horns: Fighting to Save Main Street From Wall Street and Wall Street From Itself."
It's been two years since President Obama signed the Wall Street-reform bill that has come to be known as Dodd-Frank. Has it succeeded in creating "safer and more modern rules of the road for the financial industry," as Treasury Secretary Timothy F. Geithner claims?
The prospect that the troubled U.S. automobile industry will repay its federal bailout loans also has improved in recent months, he said.
But the government's investment in American International Group (AIG) likely will result in a loss, Mr. Geithner said.
