David Wessel of the WSJ writes that the FT is a great newspaper, but that Greg Ip's story https://online.wsj.com/article/SB115828334132463875-search.html?KEYWORDS=Geithner&COLLECTION=wsjie/6month about Tim Geithner's Hong Kong speech has more information in it than David Wighton and Peter Thal Larsen's https://www.ft.com/cms/s/8d3e1c1e-4442-11db-8965-0000779e2340.html.
David is right. Greg's piece is excellent.
Isn't it ironic that most of what Salmon is writing about today was written by Barry Eichengreen, currently
sitting ten feet behind my back in his office? in Singapore. I guess I'm not going to talk to him today about our joint course this fall, am I?
