Treasury Secretary Geithner and Bill Gates Pen Joint Op-Ed

In an op-ed piece published in Thursday’s Wall Street Journal, Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner and Bill Gates, Co-chair of the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, write about a new international commitment to fight global food insecurity through the Global Agriculture and Food Security Program.  

Of note, their statement fails to address the fact that the fundamental  problem for low food supplies in many Third World nations is a lack of property rights and  rule of law .The full Op-ed is in the EPJ Vault, here.


  1. So what do you think they saying in "code" talk? What do you think is their endgame?

    It's tough to say at this point, but with Geithner involved you know they are up to no good.

    The only thing that can be done is monitor the situation, eventually they will tip their hand.
