Sixteen questions (and answers) about Goldman Sachs

Doesn’t Goldman have a new CEO now?

Yes. On October 1, David Solomon took over from Lloyd Blankfein, who took over from Hank Paulson after Paulson left to become treasury secretary under US president George W Bush. (Government service is a Goldman tradition.) Like both Blankfein and Paulson, Solomon, 56, is nearly completely bald and proud of it. He looks pretty darn good, too. But that’s where the similarities between Solomon and his two predecessors end.
