Levin Grilling Blankfein Means Clash of Harvard Law Standouts
Lloyd C. Blankfein and Carl Levin both have degrees from Harvard Law School. Judging from their confrontation on Capitol Hill yesterday, they hardly speak the same language.
Levin, chairman of the Senateās Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations, pummeled Blankfein, chairman and chief executive officer of Goldman Sachs Group Inc., with a barrage of questions about why the Wall Street firm sold securities it was betting against. Blankfein struggled to complete sentences as he tried to describe what it means to be a market-maker.
