After reading a very long piece in the FT about Hank Paulson's tenure as Treasury Secretary I felt compelled to write him this letter. ( as appearing on the Huffington Post) It is my farewell to Hank. If you have been reading my blog all year you will know that I have not exactly been a big fan of the majority of decisions that this administration has made this year. In particular I was very critical at the start of the year when I wrote The Confidence Man and the Confidence Man Two ( with Deborah ) as I truly felt they had their collective heads in the sand as to what was really going on in the economy. Despite that, I do think Hank did the best job he could. I am sure there were many lessons learned as this article points out. As he prepares to leave ofice I really do wish him the best and thank him for serving this country.
