The Dynamic Duo

. Monday, March 2, 2009

Good Post piece this morning about the dominant role of Timothy Geithner and Larry Summers in formulating economic policy in the new administration. Pretty good hint at their management style and their desire to be insulated from external pressure (such as that applied by automakers).

The piece also nicely describes the rather frenetic pace of policymaking in this era of the rolling crisis: "Last week alone, Geithner ran from meeting to meeting to craft a new rescue deal for Citigroup, talk with governors on the economic stimulus package, co-host a summit on the nation's fiscal issues, work with lawmakers on regulatory reform, refine a plan to help homeowners, discuss a major upcoming summit with his foreign counterparts and roll out the details of a "stress test" for banks."

You can decide for yourself who is Batman and who is Robin.
