Fabrice Tourre, the former Goldman Sachs executive found liable for fraud over a Paulson & Co.-linked collateralized debt obligation, won’t be teaching undergraduates after all.
Tourre, who is studying for a Ph.D. in economics at the University of Chicago, was set to teach a class on economic analysis in the spring. Instead, he’ll teach only fellow graduate students.
