U.S. Treasury Secretary Geithner and other participants take part in a conference on housing finance in Washington
U.S. Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner (4th L) participates in the Obama administration's Conference on the Future of Housing Finance in the Cash Room of the Treasury Building in Washington, August 17, 2010. With Geither are (L-R) PIMPCO's William Gross, Bank of America's Barbara Desoer, National Urban League's Marc Morial, New York University's Ingrid Gould Ellen, American Enterprise Institute's Alex Pollock and the University of Pennsylvania's Susan Wachter. The Obama administration will pick the brains of housing finance leaders on how to fix the two government-controlled mortgage finance firms Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, but made one thing clear on Tuesday: there is no going back to their pre-crisis structure.
