News broke late Wednesday morning that former Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner plans to write a book about his response to the financial crisis. Within hours, jokes about possible book titles began trending nationwide on Twitter under the hashtag #geithnerbooktitles.
Many poked fun at Geithner, who has been criticized for being too cozy with Wall Street. Others riffed on the travails of the giant financial institutions—Lehman Brothers, Citi, AIG, Goldman Sachs, etc.—that weathered the crisis to varying success.
