Henry Paulson

Profile looks at US Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson, the man with perhaps the single most power and influence over the US economy.

A decisive and forceful former head of investment bank Goldman Sachs, he only took the Treasury job on the condition that he could make his own decisions. He grew up on a farm, and has loved the outdoors and animals ever since. Even though, as his mother reveals, he once had an encounter with a family of baby skunks, that didn't quite go according to plan.
