VIDEO: Watch Three Former U.S. Treasury Sectretaries Laugh About Income Inequality
At a recent Milken Institute panel of three former Treasury Secretaries – Hank Paulson, Robert Rubin, and Tim Geithner – hosted by Facebook executive Sheryl Sandberg, the moderator asked the three about income inequality.
Paulson addressed the question, saying he had worked on the issue since he was an executive at Goldman Sachs. At this point, Rubin – another former Treasury Secretary who was also a Wall Street executive – cracked a joke, saying he was working on “increasing it.” This provoked sustained laughter from the audience, as well as all three secretaries, as well as Sandberg.
