Wall Street Roundup: Goldman's tentacles. Bair's final warning.
Goldman's tentacles. Goldman Sachs increased the number of tentacles it has in regulatory bodies around the world when it hired former economists from central banks in Europe, England and Japan.
Bair's final warning. Bank regulator Sheila Bair used her last appearance in front of Congress to warn that financial regulators are not being given enough money to enforce last year's financial reform bill.
Paulson pressure. While hedge fund magnate John Paulson appeared to be a big beneficiary of Bank of America's big settlement earlier this week, reports are now indicating that he had pushed the bank to fight back against investors.
