When Paulson was appointed Treasury Secretary in 2006, I wrote a cover story entitled “Mr. Risk Goes To Washington”.
The inside language said: “Hank Paulson’s profound understanding of risk and reward makes him the perfect pick for the Treasury.”
After this week’s events, I still can’t tell whether I was prescient in that story or completely and totally wrong.
