As between the two, Ngozi retains an authenticity and credibility that Summers sold to the highest bidder long ago. Still, I’ll put my money one the White American guy. After all, his conflicts of interest pale in comparison to what Hank Paulson did for Goldman when he was at Treasury, and he’s from the right tribe – unlike Ngozi.
