For three weeks in September 2008, one person was charged with preventing the collapse of the global economy. No one understood the financial markets better than Hank Paulson, the former CEO of Goldman Sachs. In Hank: Five Years from the Brink, Paulson tells the complete story of how he persuaded banks, Congress and presidential candidates to sign off on nearly $1 trillion in bailouts - even as he found the behavior that led to the crisis, and the bailouts themselves, morally reprehensible. Directed by Academy Award nominee Joe Berlinger (Paradise Lost Trilogy, Some Kind of Monster), the film features Paulson, and his wife of 40 years, Wendy. it's a riveting portrait of leadership under unimaginable pressure - and a marriage under unfathomable circumstances.Written by
Self serving informercial, "The Hank and Wendy Show"
As someone who also went to Harvard, I can tell you that not all experiences are the same. There are the STEM majors, pre meds and med students, who work their asses off or fail. On the other hand there are the MBA and pre biz crowd , and Hank is of the ladder elk. He brags about not having to study hs second year at the B school- must be nice....; so the "masters of the universe" have no clothes or work ethic...
Preppy Wendy really "preps out" as she humble brags her way through the piece, "She never had to pay for a dinner and was bored with dating" . Apparently she was so hot guys were all over her, but none of them were good enough for her, until HANK. She never wanted HANK to take the high profile jobs, like those actors who claim they were dragged into entertainment kicking and screaming, so above it all.....If she never wanted it, maybe they should give the money back?
Speaking of boring humblebrags, she gives herself goosebumps by describing how Hank was home in time to bathe the kids on the 4:30..... Why? Nanny on furlough? So...Hank didn't even have to work long hours to make the old hundreds of millions of tax shielded dollars? NICEEEE.... Oh yea, real salt of the earth couple here. I guess those of us who worked the 14 hour days in medicine are suckers then? I know I know, IT WAS FOR THE CHILDREN!
Why didn't they talk about Goldman Sachs sordid history? Or, the fact that investment bankers didn't make that much when Hank started in it, but by the time he left.....Unless you consider orders of magnitude more than doctors low pay, yea, that changed.
