Note "Sauer's informed (he was an SEC attorney before he joined a hedge fund) and detailed set of stories will make you sick, but they'll also make you appreciate what a no-win position the Feds occupy in America's--and the world's--byzantine financial regulatory schema, not to mention how the bad behavior of Goldman Sachs took down a hedge fund on the cusp of making a bundle for its investors thanks to prescient bets on a financial crisis."-- Jeff Matthews.
