What what dated Treasury Secretary Paulson did with day and I guess -- New York Fed Chairman Geithner did.
They reached up a Wall Street to see what -- what they would they would so what they would do.
That's exactly what they're doing now what I in the stand.
Is that Wall Street is telling Geithner and Geithner is telling the European leaders we much you guys have to do.

Development this is that going on I would say for the last couple weeks had a like -- -- again Wall Street guys dealing directly.
With the white house with Geithner.
Are basically tell me this and it is an interesting development because they really believe you know harp is very controversial here don't write your politicians.

You know this is about confidence what you raise deposit insurance.
Well guess what you don't wanna run on the bank you want people just pulling money out of banks that's what they're telling -- -- -- -- I don't think they have the pocket insurance.
-- -- those European banks they're telling them to start start doing that now but there's a lot of other measures loan guarantees obviously.
Instead of more integration between the banking system but the bears in the in the eurozone and that that the -- -- -- These capital member capital injections.
Was -- talks started out as a plan to buy the toxic assets from the banks to inject in the capital bike by and they could forget that just give -- the money.
That's what they're calling for -- there.
You know it's interesting and let me ask you one thing about -- Charlie I was listening to the the -- -- -- just went -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- None of those things that the White House is pushing for and have already been tried in Europe -- Europe seems to have trust -- everything but none of these things right.
There tension and that's what's driving the White House I know based on the conversation mom -- people who are talking with Geithner it's driving him close speak to him -- They are just -- because -- this overstate the White House police.
Whether you know we we can debate the -- efficiency efficacy this'll date but the White House believes that that play book that was developed by Geithner as New York fed president.

Pay back the money we can debate that too there's a little you know well there's a little full PO fishing cabin with that but but if they don't believe that worked.

More active role as they really believe.
