Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner says that the economy, domestically and globally, is looking good and that we should experience continued growth going forward (Videos Below Excerpts and Comments):

Trains are coming back across the country with containers full because their exports are growing. And, I think you’re seeing more confidence across the country.
You see we’re creating more jobs. Job growth is picking up encouragingly.
I think the global recovery is in much stronger shape than it was.
When questioned about the possibility of what is happening with Europe’s debt crisis spreading to the US, Mr. Geithner responds:
