Summary:

The New York Times used FOIA to obtain a copy of the calendar of then-Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson during the financial crisis of September 2008, as well as related email traffic. The calendar shows Paulson, former head of Goldman Sachs, communicated far more frequently with its new head, Lloyd Blankfein, than he had communicated with the leaders of comparable financial institutions.
