What's Wrong with Class War?





To compare someone like Bernie Sanders to bloodthirsty monsters like Stalin and Pol Pot is too ludicrous for words. I've heard of slippery slopes before, but good lord, this guy must be totally off his rocker

Goldman Suffers Terrible Quarter After FICC, Prop Trading Revenues Plunge; Banker Comp At Five Year Lows





Once again, Jefferies' one-month early glimpse at Wall Street trading revenues proved to be spot on. After the boutique mid-market banks reported a total collapse in fixed income trading revenues (which ended up negative following massive charge offs), everyone was looking at the biggest hedge fund among the TBTF banks - Goldman Sachs - to see just how bad the trading environment really is. The answer came moments ago, and the answer is bad. Very bad.

China's Other Big Problem: 35 Applicants For One White Collar Job





In the world's most populous communist country where jobs used to be guaranteed - by definition - to anyone, in any walk of life, it has suddenly become next to impossible to progress up the career ladder, something which will result in great social angst and instability in the coming years.  According to China Daily, competition for white-collar jobs became fiercer in the third quarter, with more than 35 job seekers contending for the same position on average. This is a jump from 26 and 29 in the first and second quarters this year, a Chinese human resources website said on Tuesday.

Goldman CEO Lloyd Blankfein Reveals He Has Lymphoma





To my colleagues, our clients and our shareholders,

Late this summer after several weeks of not feeling well, I underwent a series of tests, which culminated in a biopsy last week. After the biopsy, I was told by my doctors that I have lymphoma. Fortunately, my form of lymphoma is highly curable and my doctors' and my own expectation is that I will be cured.

Lloyd Blankfein: "The Image Of Trump With His Finger On The Button Blows My Mind"





Blankfein's biggest nightmare? "The image of Trump "with his finger on the button blows my mind," he added, drawing laughter from the audience." Surely a far scarier prospect for Blankfein and his peers is coming to Washington after the next crash and demanding another bailout, and coming back empty handed.

The Only Thing That Matters For The Rate-Hike Decision





A week ago, we noted Goldman Sachs' 'strawman' that Janet should "think about easing," despite the world's misplaced confidence that rates will rise "inevitably" since the US economy is doing so well. Today, we get to hear what 'god' thinks as the only thing that matters for The Fed's decision is - keep Lloyd happy  - and Goldman CEO Blankfein just said "U.S. economic data doesn’t support the case for higher interest rates."

Head Of China's 'Goldman Sachs' Probed For Insider Trading As "Market Purification" Continues





Imagine for a moment the sentiment shock for mainstream Americans if Goldman Sachs' Lloyd Blankfein was probed for insider-trading and publicly scapegoated for causing a nation's equity market (and economy) to collapse. While it may be true, it would never happen in America... But in China, as part of what authorities call "purifying the markets," the president of China’s biggest brokerage has been swept up in a widening campaign to root out financial wrongdoing and assign blame for the nation’s $5 trillion stock rout. As Bloomberg notes, shares are falling further in today's markets as the probe of Citic Securities President Cheng Boming comes after the state-run Xinhua News Agency reported last month that four executives at Citic had admitted to so-called insider trading.

Goldman Is Officially A Bank: Bailed Out Hedge Fund Will Allow Muppets To Give Their Savings To Lloyd Blankfein





The last time former Goldman employee and then Treasury Secretary Hank Paulson bailed out the hedge fund known as Goldman Sachs, and its closest peers (but not its biggest fixed income competitor Lehman Brothers of course), even the traditionally confused American public pushed back on the structure of the bailout which converted the Goldman holding company into an FDIC-insured company, which led many to ask: just where are Goldman's deposits? The answer, of course, was nowhere, so perhaps in anticipation of the logical pushback against its second, upcoming bailout which would see the taxpayer-backed depositor insurance company once again provide trillions in cash to banks as well as the glorified hedge funds such as Goldman, the firm moments ago decided to do something it has never done before: become an actual bank with checking accounts and such.
