Meet The Press: Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson

Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson gets grilled by Tom Brokaw — live from Beijing.



Running time, 07:36 minutes

Thank to VJ for alerting TBP about this this video, who posted the following comment:

"Brokaw repeatedly splashes Paulson in the face with reality on this morning’s Meet the Press: * Tells him the stimulus checks that his Treasury sent out "had about as much effect as a BB gun on a bear". * Displayed his ‘CONTAINED’ quote up on the screen, "I don’t see [subprime mortgage market troubles] imposing a serious problem. I think it’s going to be largely contained." * Showed the video of Chimpy saying that "Wall Street got drunk". Paulson said that in 5 months, he exits, stage Right."

Who knew Brokaw had the stones to grill a senior politico?

UPDATE: August 10, 2008 7:12pm

It looked much harder hitting on NBC than it does on the web. There were more pull quote — they all looked rather foolish. Perhaps that gave the audio interview a tougher appearance than warranted

Faber: Global Economy in Recession

Investor Marc Faber, publisher of the Gloom, Boom & Doom Report, talks with Bloomberg’s Kathleen Hays about the euro’s performance against the U.S. dollar, the commodities market and the global economy. The euro fell the most in almost eight years against the dollar as traders pared bets the European Central Bank will raise interest rates as the economy slows.

Bloomberg Video: AIG Earnings

Yesterday, I was supposed to do a quick 3 minute spot at Bloomberg, so I headed off to the studio after the close to talk about AIG earnings.

Only the AIG earnings were rather delayed (more than 20 minutes), so I got to babble for a good long time.
