Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Soros calls Summers and Geithner "free market fundamentalists" - hard core ideologists - and this is the one thing that makes me worried: does Obama not see this? Wouldn't it be wise to have some people outside of this group giving him advice too?

Frankly, I'd rather see Summers fired as the senior economic advisor and replaced by a Roubini or Galbraith, who are more reality based and see the bigger world economic picture, and not tied to an ideology. Even Josh at TPM is now saying these same concerns right now - that Obama will have to show some leadership on this, rather than being a deer in the headlights.
