Jan. 9 (Bloomberg) -- Hank Greenberg, former chief executive officer at American International Group Inc., said Goldman Sachs Group Inc. is responsible for the collapse of the insurer during the economic crisis, the Wall Street Journal reported yesterday. âIt certainly wouldnât be difficult to come to that conclusion,â Greenberg is quoted as telling the newspaper. Greenberg blamed new standards for credit-default swaps - -pushed by Goldman or Deutsche Bank AG, he said -- and subprime, housing-backed derivatives sold and then shorted by Goldman as contributing to AIGâs collapse, the newspaper reported. âMr. Greenberg appears to base his views on news reports rather than facts,â Lucas van Praag, a Goldman spokesman, said in an e-mail to Bloomberg News. âIt is interesting that he doesnât mention the devastating conclusions about AIG reached by the companyâs own auditors.â http://www.bloomberg.com/apps/news?pid=20601087&sid=aMZNMYvwnorI&pos=2 The danger of dealing with Goldman Sachs.
