NEW YORK (AP) — Former Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner will write a book focusing on his response to the financial crisis, The Associated Press has learned.
Geithner, 51, will be represented by Washington-based attorney Robert Barnett, who confirmed Wednesday that Geithner would be meeting with publishers, but otherwise declined comment. Barnett has negotiated deals for President Barack Obama and former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton.
Few treasury secretaries have attracted as much attention as Geithner, who has been praised for preventing a second Great Depression, but criticized for being too sympathetic to Wall Street. The book is expected to come in 2014.
