Don’t miss the NYTime’s day-by-day accounting of how Timothy Geithner spent his time as President of the New York Federal Reserve during the build-up of the economic crisis. The annotated calendar of Geithner’s comings and goings reveals a tennis game with former Fed Chairman Alan Greenspan and a meeting with Blackrock CEO Larry Fink to discuss “our agreement.” It’s a companion piece to the Times front-page story on Geithner’s unusually close ties to the Wall Street firms he was supposed to be regulating.
Today The Times released the full schedules of Timothy F. Geithner from January 2007 to January 2009, when he was president of the Federal Reserve Bank of New York. We obtained the calendar through a Freedom of Information Act request. An examination of his schedules — backed by dozens of interviews — offers a rich account of the people and forces that shaped Mr. Geithner’s thinking and actions during one of the greatest financial crisis in U.S. history.
