How the White House Plans to Hurt Putin
U.S. Deputy Treasury Secretary Wally Adeyemo on the preparations that go into sanctioning Russia.
Wally Adeyemo is no stranger to economic crises. The 41-year-old policymaker first served in the U.S. Treasury Department amid the Great Recession that began in 2007 as deputy chief of staff to then-Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner and, later, to Jack Lew. Adeyemo went on to serve as then-U.S. President Barack Obama’s representative to the G-7 and G-20. Each of those roles have served as crucial preparation for his current job as deputy secretary of the treasury under Janet Yellen.
