    I'm not going to get into assessing his motives, nor am I going to get into the relative merits of his tenure as SecTreas, as that is a well worn topic here and elsewhere.

    However, when he was the president of the New York Fed, he was apparently (if the stories around Wall Street are to be believed) not well regarded by the Fed's professional staff, which mostly consists of assorted types of professional worker bees (economists, bond traders, researchers, IT personnel, etc.) who tend to have tenure longer than a lot of the political appointees there.
