What Did Goldman Know And When Did It Forget It?

By Simon Johnson

There is a live blog on the Goldman Sachs hearing now on the Lehrer NewsHour website, including comments by Paul Solman and me.  The interaction between Goldman and the Senators – Democratic and Republican – is fascinating.

The Goldman executives so far seem to be struggling to recall exactly what happened.  The Senators are pressing them hard.  This is much more than theater.  This is (some) people trying to figure out exactly who did what to whom.
