Scheiber on Cyprus & Geithner

Regular readers will know of my almost visceral dislike for former Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner and his ilk: These denizens of Wall Street have no place in policy-making positions in the kind of Democratic Party I was reared to admire. So, I especially enjoyed Noam Scheiber's look at how the comically inept politics of Cyprus nonetheless achieved a better bargain for the people of their country than Geithner achieved for ours.
