- "Kruvant's husband, William Kruvant, who is a senior adviser to Creative, is a former assistant director of financial institutions and markets issues at the General Accounting Office. In 1991, he was one of the authors of a GAO report that determined there was no price manipulation of oil prices during the Gulf War. Critics had alleged that speculators were profiting from artificially raised oil prices in the stock market. William Kruvant was one of the authors of the report that said the oil prices reflected actual changes in supply and demand and were not the result of manipulation."
