Goldman Sachs’ CEO Lloyd Blankfein was in DC recently and made a rare public appearance.
It was, of course, all scripted for him to deliver talking points, look like a financial statesman and announce the latest, greatest thing they are doing for mankind. Another post will address that more specifically, but the satirical magazine The Onion just published an insightful article that purports to quote Blankfein and other Wall Street swells on what they are really up to.
It’s a must read from beginning to end:
“Claiming that enough time had surely passed since they last caused a global economic meltdown, top executives from the U.S. financial sector told reporters Monday that they are just about ready to completely destroy the world again.”
