The Revolving Door Spins Again As Another Former Regulator Cashes In
“Former Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner’s spin through the revolving door at to cash in on his ‘public service’ will enrich himself, further erode public confidence in government and give the finance industry more access and influence at the highest levels of government worldwide. Proving his critics right, Geithner will now be richly rewarded by the very industry he worked so hard as a public official to bail out with taxpayer money and which he was supposed to regulate but did not,” said Dennis Kelleher, President and CEO of Better Markets, a nonprofit organization that promotes the public interest in the financial markets.
