Investment Markets Overview – w/e 25 Jan 2013

Timothy Franz Geithner leaves his job on January 25 as the 75th US Treasury Secretary, having served for four years under President Obama. Aged 51,  Geithner has been a career politician, albeit that this included a period at the IMF and five years from 2003 as the President of the Federal Reserve Bank of New York, serving also as the Vice-Chair of the FOMC. As such he presided over monetary policy during the bubble years that preceded the 2007 crisis and allegedly worked to reduce the capital required to run a bank. He, alongside of his predecessor, Hank Paulson, was integral to the bailouts of many Wall Street firms, including the controversial AIG saga. Described by Paulson as, “a very talented young man who understands government and understands markets,” he will go down as the $US 5 TRILLION Treasurer – the amount that Treasury debt has increased on his watch. Whilst he patently,” understands government,” the future may yet paint a different picture on his understanding of markets.
