Peeking into Hank Paulson's House

What real estate downturn?

Former Treasury Secretary, Hank Paulson, who shoveled hundreds of billions of dollars to Wall Street's elite during the financial crisis, has put his Washington D.C. house up for sale. He bought it at what would have been the peak in the housing market in 2006 for $4.3 million and has it up for sale for $4.6 million.

WSJ has a slideshow of the house here

BLEG: Slide 3 shows Paulson's bedroom with an extensive book collection. If anyone has the skilz to blow that slide up so that the book titles are readable, please let me know. I sure would like to know what books Paulson is reading while he is in bed with the missus.


  1. Seeing the titles on the books in Paulson's "library" would be a waste of time. He's an empty suit, the books are on display for appearances not because he reads.

  2. A cold and creepy house. Befits both owners: Corzine and Paulson.
