  1. The Wall Street Journal reports in article Geithner Rallies Europe on Growth, that U.S. Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner, meeting with German Finance Minister Wolfgang Schäuble Thursday May 27, 2010, said there was a shared interest in creating a global approach to financial system restructuring, but warned against drafting policies that are counterproductive and could push activities outside of market oversight.

    My thouhts are that Mr. Geither see global goverance as an imperative.
