Inquiring Minds Want to Know . . .

  • Is AIG still selling credit derivatives? (see, e.g., Timmeh, here.)

  • Has Goldman Sachs bought any derivatives (from AIG or anyone else) since the AIG bailout (see, e.g., this)?

  • If so, what are the terms (i.e., what is G-S betting for or against, and are those derivatives attached to any "insurable interest" of G-S – i.e., if they're hedging risks re- a commodity or whatever that they actually own, that's one thing; if they're simply speculating that, e.g., commercial real estate in general will tank, that's another)?
