Dude…Bummer

dude-geitner

Giethner’s personal self-employment “mistakes” have to do with his obligation to pay Social Security taxes on his income when he worked at the International Monetary Fund. (NB)

Mr Geithner looks a lot younger than his 47 years (though not as young as he did before the crisis began). He snowboards, has tried skateboarding and exudes a sort of hipster-wonkiness, using “way” as a synonym for “very” as in “way consequential” and occasionally underlining his point with the word “fu**”. In temperament he seems similar to Mr Obama: he is suspicious of ideology, questions received wisdom, likes a competition of ideas and is keenly aware of how uncertain the world is. (link)
