ABSTRACT
The article argues that the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission's (SEC) filing of charges against Goldman Sachs for its allegedly fraudulent Abacus 2007-AC1 collateralized debt obligations (CDO) could mend the agency's tattered reputation and uphold its mission of being the investor's advocate. The author also believes that Goldman is a make-or-break case for SEC and could have potentially career-altering changes for SEC Chairman Mary Schapiro and her appointed enforcement chief Robert Khuzami.
