NEW YORK (CNNMoney)
Tim Geithner wants another word on the financial crisis.
The former treasury secretary plans to write a book about the response to the crisis, with publication targeted for 2014, according to a source familiar with the project. The source said Geithner has yet to settle on a publisher.
Geithner's book will be another addition to the crisis-memoir genre, following books from ex-government officials including Bush treasury secretary Hank Paulson, former Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation chairwoman Sheila Bair and former bailout watchdog Neil Barofsky.
Geithner also plans to join the Council on Foreign Relations later this month as a distinguished fellow, the New York-based think tank announced Wednesday.
Geithner has a masters in international economics and much of his early career focused on that field. He had been under secretary of Treasury for international affairs during the Clinton administration, moving to CFR as a senior fellow in 2001, and then onto the International Monetary Fund later that year.
He became president of the Federal Reserve Bank of New York in October 2003, serving in that role until he was tapped as Treasury secretary in 2009. His final day in that office was Jan. 25. President Obama has nominated his chief of staff Jack Lew to take his place, but he has yet to be confirmed by the Senate.
