Chomsky on the Obama/Geithner Rescue Plan



There’s been an outcry in America about the financial rescue plan unveiled by the Obama administration under the leadership of Treasury Secretary, Timothy Geithner. The Obama administration plans to buy up $2 trillion in toxic financial assets. The plan is being denounced by economists in the mainstream press, as well as commentators in the alternative media.

Pepe Escobar also provides excellent commentary of Geithner’s PPPIP (Public-Private Partnership Investment Programme), which he refers to as hedge fund socialism. According to Escobar, if PPPIP fails, Obama sinks.
