We dive into the SEC's lawsuit against Goldman Sachs, and Goldman's emphatic arguments in its defense. We consider the similarities between this case and that Magnetar story that aired recently on This American Life. And our long quest to unite financial reporting with Broadway theater continues. (Spoiler: It's a dramatic reading of a Goldman executive's convoluted answer to a key question about the case.) For more, listen to a recording of the conference call Goldman hosted this morning, and read our posts explaining the SEC's case and hashing out one piece of Goldman's defense. You can also read the SEC's complaint and Goldman's response.
