Timmy’s tome

The author of the article jokes about how ex-Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner's book should belong in the fiction section. The author believes that everything Geithner writes will be purely self-serving and only to be taken with a shaker of salt.

When I first reported last month that ex-Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner wants to write a book about his long years as one of Washington’s chief economic bureaucrats, I was only half joking when I said it should be in the fiction section. And now I mean it.

Geithner yesterday confirmed that he’s shopping a book. As a free-markets fan, I hope he gets a nice payday. The irony is that Geithner has done much to damage the country’s free markets.

The list of his fumbles is a long one, but the highlights include failing to see the coming of the 2008 banking collapse (then bailing the banks out); his bungling of the nearly $1 trillion stimulus package that gave us high unemployment and low economic growth, and his role in creating the Dodd-Frank law’s overregulation of Wall Street that still allows Too Big To Fail banks to flourish.

You can bet anything he writes will be purely self-serving and only to be taken with a whole shaker of salt.

As a fellow author, I want to help Tim find a title that best explains his contributions. A few options:

* An Idiot’s Guide To Screwing Up the Economy

* What I Saw at the (Socialist) Revolution

* How To Screw Up a Perfectly Good Bailout

* Loving the Guy in the White House (Who Couldn’t Care Less About Me)

* It’s the Other Guys’ Fault: My Time With Hank Paulson Bailing Out the Big Banks

* Mysteries of Space: How a Guy With Little Between His Ears Made It So Far

* The White House Diet: Forget What Michelle Says About Eating Well, Just Work for Her Husband

* How To Keep Failing Upward

* 50 Shades of Truth: Fooling Reporters To Think High Unemployment Is Great and Getting Your Guy Re-elected

Tim, no need to thank me; in the words of your boss, I’m just doing my “fair share.”
