Secretary Tim Geithner Discusses the 'Healthy, but Slow' Economic Recovery

GEITHNER: Again, I think they need to show, in judgments they make about how they pay their executives, and judgments they make about how they use the privileges they get from being banks in the United States with the protection the government offers. They're prepared to take a chance in the American business. It's got some idea they want to finance. And they're in there again, again taking responsible chances on the American economy. That's going to take -- that's a good way to start.

MORAN: And you're going to be riding herd on them?

GEITHNER: We're going to be encouraging it. We're going to make it compelling for them to do that.

MORAN: Thank you very much.

GEITHNER: Nice to see you.
