Tim Geithner just spent Wednesday in London and Frankfurt, and today he is in Berlin, both lobbying for a global architecture for financial regulation and downplaying the need for uniformity, as the United States is wont to do (he's also thinking about a little debt crisis you may have heard about over there). On Monday and Tuesday, he was in Beijing, for the Strategic and Economic Dialogue, with absolutely every financial regulator from the States that matters (Bernanke, Bair, Gensler, &c), where basically, he had to sit in a room and listen to speeches about the need for closer ties between China and the rest of the world. That's around the world in five days, and he's not even getting miles from Treasury Airlines.
