well, one could say that a few years back, GS provided a valuable service to Greece in helping it massage its deficit figures and qualify for the euro. Today, their role seems more ambiguous, if not downright hostile, but it's hard to know exactly what they are doing.

That said, I don't think Hank Paulson has any involvement with Goldman Sachs today, so that's where you got me confused.

I admit that in much of my frothing I've been writing quickly without following a timeline.

The fact that he headed GS and then held considerable power during a financial meltdown, during which he supported his former company, and then after his former company continued on without contrition in their attitudes and maneuvers...well, sometimes this causes me to lose my mind.
