Outgoing Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner is fairly upbeat about the economy in a leaving interview with the WSJ, saying it's in the "fourth quarter" of its recovery from the financial crisis, although "unemployment is still very high." Geithner also defends rescuing the financial system despite it appearing as if "you're giving aid to the arsonist."
