I just watched a breakingviews.com… video on the web in which Anthony Currie suggests that maybe it’s time for non-bankers to run the banks.
There was indeed something incestuously clubby about the confirmation process for Geithner, no matter how smart he is, that made the same thought run through my head.
So, I hope Steve Jobs gets better quickly, and when he does, he’d be the perfect person to run Treasury. He’s tough, he’s creative, and he knows how to to fix broken companies.
