Meet Goldman's New Partners

Tyler Durden's picture


It may be one of the smallest partner "classes" in recent Goldman history but for the 70 names below, today is one of the best days of their lives: it marks their induction into the real Master of the Galaxy club (sadly, not even Goldman is Master of the Universe any more). This is what Lloyd had to say: “We congratulate all those selected on this important achievement and look forward to their leadership in the years ahead." Spoiler alert: neither Greg Smith, nor Shashank Tripathi, are on the list.

The bottom line is that they are rich and you are not.  They didn't make their money fairly?  Welcome to the Universe, pal.  It ain't fair.  Some win, some lose.  The losers talk tough, but of course do nothing.  That is what losers do.  Your towel just slipped in the locker room, and that boasted thirty-ought-six is a snub-nosed BB gun.  Your rifle doesn't compensate---cannot compensate---for what that random Universe didn't give you.  Fight Club is fiction, buddy.  It's fantasy, like you and your "gun".

By the way, aren't you the one outed (by a now banned former member) as a Government contractor, benefitting from everybody else' tax revenues?  What's that you say?  "Keep Government out of my Federal contract!"

No, I'm not a Goldman partner and I'm not defending them.  These silly threats, violent fantasies, and talk about courage you absolutely lack are bullshit, however, and deserve comment.

The European Union can't be a peace prize winner and Goldman partner in the same year. That would be like a conflict of interest...or something. That would be like awarding somebody who kills civilians around the world with drones a peace prize and they wouldn't do that would they?

The fearless leader only attacks those who pose a major threat to our freedom and democracy. 'Twas totally a good call to send "presents" to those diaperheads who were attending the funeral of another diaperhead from a previous round of "presents." Gee, our fearless leader is so generous and compassionate.

If you change the list to David, Joseph, Michael you get the initials DJM, which doesn't seem to mean anything until you take the 2 from 2nd term and "subtract 2" from the first 2 letters and "add 2" to the last letter because it is last name.

Then you get BHO.  Coincidence?  I think not.

"Kent Clark" would be a good name for S.E.C. head (anti-Superman).

"Xavier C. Menguy" would be too difficult for CNBC to report on.

They call them partners, but they are not partners in the traditional sense of the word. They are partners in a "racket."

The company is a corporation with public shareholders and they are the ones who, along with the public treasury via bailouts, suffer losses when these so called partners make reckless bets with other peoples money. Quite a nice racket.

What I am saying is of course obvious to alert ZH readers.

Just go check what their end was in the AIG bailout.

And as a matter of business entity law I know precisely what I am talking about. I suspect, however, that you do not know what I am referring to, I suggest you go and read the background section of their 10K. While you are at it, I suggest you bear in mind that a General Partner in the legal sense has joint and several liability for all of the losses of an enterprise.

Please go back and tell who ever it is that sent you here, that neither I nor the people who frequent this site are in need of anymore foolish narratives about how the transactions reflected on this chart somehow do not amount to a bailout of of the storied institutions denoted by the color  of piss. Or for that matter the moronic idea that Goldman Sachs had no influence in their consummation.

After all they were just another helpless shitty counterparty just like Socgen, DB, and oh dear Merrill,  right?

Fully hedged indeed.


I don't know who you harassed about PM. One thing I do know though, PM has been a better trading bet than these storied institutions during the past four years and I am not giving investment advice of any kind.

"Partner" is just a watered down term that does not mean what it originally meant in investment banking.  Partners historically had skin in the game.  Partners historically risked their own fortune when making investments. 

In the early 1980's, Solomon Bros. went public.  This move allowed the firm to raise vast amounts of capital from the public domain; hence allowing the watered down version of "partners" taking very little to no personal risk at all, while increasing their net worth exponentially.

Goldman went public late 1990's.  Same thing.  Lots of "sophisticated" investment strategies, too complex for the simple minded masses.  Shitloads of money made on a great many scams the patsy's were too dumb to understand; at absolutely no personal risk at all to the "partners".

The prestigious B-schools throughout this nation have created more terrorists, (partners), than all the mosques throughout the entire middle east.
