Geithner vs Huntsman: Trash vs Truth

Posted by Larry Doyle on July 19th, 2012 10:26 AM |

I don’t know about you, but I find myself often every morning discounting much of what I read in financial periodicals as mere noise if not outright trash. Trash? Yes, trash.

In my opinion, the garbage spewed is not a function of a broken sewer line, so to speak, but very much a function of individuals and institutions working hard to disguise or pollute a situation or a reality.
