Tim Geithner: “I Never Had a Real Job”
Posted by Larry Doyle on April 26, 2010 1:25 PM |
Although Treasury Secretary Geithner may chuckle about his statement in an interview released yesterday, Americans should be more demanding of Geithner and many other members of the Obama administration. Why more demanding? The lack of private sector experience is a very real problem in Washington. How can we expect our public representatives to make strong and effective policy impacting the private sector if they have little to no experience in that space?
Geithner can read all the books and public policy manuals he wants. Theory may work great in the classroom, but games are truly won and lost on the field. If he has never put a jockstrap on, how can we expect him to know what it takes to play the game?
