Henry Paulson

Former Treasury Secretary Henry M. Paulson lamented some actions but said he was sure the economy would be much worse had he and other government officials not acted as they did. “I knew it was going to be very bad, and I didn’t want to experience very bad,” he told the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform.
