Will anyone in the MSM’s EVER Investigate the connection of Tim Geithner, Paul Voelker and Larry Summers to the “Group of Thirty”?


The work of the Group of Thirty impacts the current and future structure of the global financial system by delivering actionable recommendations directly to the private and public policymaking communities.

About the Group of Thirty

The Group of Thirty, established in 1978, is a private, nonprofit, international body composed of very senior representatives of the private and public sectors and academia. It aims to deepen understanding of international economic and financial issues, to explore the international repercussions of decisions taken in the public and private sectors, and to examine the choices available to market practitioners and policymakers.

The Group’s members meet in plenary sessions twice a year with select guests to discuss important economic, financial and policy developments.

Members of the G30 – central bank governors, government officials, leading economists and private sector experts from sixteen countries – have addressed a variety of topics during regular policy meetings and launched a number of comprehensive analytical studies to tackle the challenging questions in the world of economics and finance. The G30 is led by Paul A. Volcker, Chairman of the Trustees, and Jacob A. Frenkel, Chairman.

LIST of Group of Thirty Members

The Group of Thirty was launched at the suggestion of Robert Roosa, a U.S. Treasury Undersecretary, and the Rockefeller Foundation in New York in 1978 to commence a program aimed at fostering a better understanding of international economic and monetary policy. Geoffrey Bell was the principal architect of the Group and travelled the world to find potential members for the organization. Johannes Witteveeen, the Group’s first Chairman, suggested thirty as the maximum number of individuals that can easily be accommodated around a single table for stimulating group discussions.

A defining feature of the G30 is that the senior individuals who form its membership also serve as its principal workforce.  

The work program is managed by a small staff based in Washington, DC, that provides policy guidance and administrative support for the meetings and projects that the membership decides to pursue.

The Board of Trustees, the Chairman and the members of the Group of Thirty are extremely grateful for the support, monetary or in kind, of our contributors. We would like to take this opportunity to thank all of our contributors and supporters who have helped make the G30 a successful institution as we approach our thirtieth year of existence.

My question is this:

Isn’t there a “conflict of interest” when Geithner, Voelker and Summers are part of the “Group of Thirty” that is SUPPORTED by groups involved in the original TARP bill of $700 BILLION dollars? What is in the “Stimulus Bill” of nearly ONE TRILLION dollars that can be linked back to them?



JP Morgan Chase

Lehman Brothers

Goldman Sachs (Also connected to Henry Paulson, the previous Sec. of Treasury)

Merrill Lynch

Soros Fund Management

Why is it I ALWAYS see George Soros’ name when anything involved with questionable money practices is involved?

Now we are going to hear from the Secretary of the Treasury, Tim Geithner’s PLAN in reference to the economy?  Will he admit his connections to the “Group of Thirty”? 

Where is the TRUTH and TRANSPARENCY President Obama promised America?
