The question of whether Lloyd Blankfein can survive as CEO at Goldman Sachs is being discretely discussed by the firm's top management and former executives, sources said. Options being discussed include Blankfein's resignation and a broader shake-up in which many top managers would be asked to leave, the sources said. The talk also includes asking former U.S. Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson to return as chairman, but one source said Paulson would not be interested in coming back.
