It’s pretty worth sufficient for me. Personally, if all site owners and bloggers made excellent content material as you probably did, the net can be a lot more useful than ever before.

I’m with kman on the GS story, and there’s an easy way to tell if GS was telling the truth: after U/S/ t/a/x/p/a/y/e/r/s/ AIG gave GS the $20B it was “owed,” have GS reveal who the counterparties on the other side were.

The Henry M. Paulson, Jr., Retirement Trust, LLC. is more likely to be on the list than UBS, SocGen, or ING.

The series is worth a look for Tanta’s wit alone, but there’s a recurring theme in her objections; exactly what Felix reflects in his last paragraph – the stretching and squeezing of facts to fit an argument. And this from a lady who has no rivals I’m aware of as the US mortgage industry’s most acerbic and informed critic.

I don’t buy it. GS bought CDS from AIG probably to hedge against something — like a default or a credit event on some of their other contracts.

What they’re saying is “oh we hedged our hedge” ™.
Why? If the world didn’t almost come to end ™, how did they expect to make any money since they’d be paying
a) AIG for the CDS
b) somebody else for the AIG counterparty insurance

I call BS on GS’s hedge story. I actually call double-BS on it: Because whatever position they took against an AIG default, I bet it wouldn’t come close to paying in full. They’d either have to spend a lot of money in legal fees chasing yet another stupid company which sold insurance they can’t pay (AIG’s AIG) or some entity (government, courts) would tell them to take their 40 cents on the dollar and be happy with it.

As for Gretchen, I have no problem with her having more news stories/columns/opinions/whatever and the likes of Friedman/Krugman/Brooks having less. She does a much better job than the folks with not-so-hidden political agendas at the NYT.
