Dr. Pitchfork ~ Tim Geithner’s Magical Mystery Tour Of TARP Propaganda Has Little Use For Truth

In “5 Myths About TARP,” Tim Geithner joins Steve Rattner and Herb Allison in the parade of Washington insiders who have gone out of their way to tout the great success of TARP, calling it the “most effective government program in recent memory.”  If you think the Timmy doth protest too much, methinks you’re exactly right.

Geithner starts by rehearsing the same, tiresome narrative we’ve heard a thousand times:

  • [TARP] was essential to averting a second Great Depression, stabilizing a collapsing financial system, protecting the savings of Americans and restoring the flow of credit that is the oxygen of the economy. And it helped achieve all that at a lower cost than anyone expected.

Then Geithner proceeds to debunk some “myths” about TARP.
