For those who may not recall, Neel Kashkari was the special assistant to Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson, and was featured in several CSPAN Congressional appearances where he discussed TARP and how the $700 Billion in funds was to be spent. Here’s a quick flashback:
Kashkari has since “resigned” and moved to a SHTF location somewhere in the secluded woods of the Sierra Nevadas in Nevada County, CA. We are of the opinion that Mr. Kashkari may know that a complete meltdown of the system is imminent, so he has preemptively bugged out of the city.
Tom of the North, editor of Outside the (Carboard) Box, examines a recent Washington Post puff piece about Mr. Kashkari by taking the article line by line and adding his own views and commentary. Tom points out the ridiculousness of it all in Extreme Makeover: WaPo Edition. We urge our readers to visit OTCB and read the article in full for some truly excellent intellectual entertainment!
We wanted to post some choice excerpts from the article, but it simply would not do it justice, so click the link below and head on over there for the full read. It will definitely be worth your time.
