Our Questions for the New York Fed and Goldman Sachs

In the course of reporting our story "The Secret Recordings of Carmen Segarra" with ProPublica, we sent lots of questions to the New York Fed and Goldman Sachs. We wanted to share those with you, along with the institutions' responses.

These are our questions to the New York Fed. The New York Fed responded with a statement and later this email.

Here are our questions to Goldman Sachs, and Goldman Sachs' response.

And one last document that plays an important role in our story: the confidential report Columbia professor David Beim wrote for the New York Fed in 2009, as it was trying to figure out why it failed to anticipate the financial crisis and what it should do to make sure it wouldn't fail to catch the next one.
