Geez Infinity,  Don't you know nuthin?  Read Taibbi?  This Blanfein dude didn't rape the maid - he raped us all, each and every one.  By hiring this junkyard dog, we know that Lloyd't a-hole is currently in the puckerin mode.  We can only hope that it'll soon be bleedin.

It wouldn't hurt to give the man a Green.

Everyone here cannot be so far up there own arese that they can't afford a Green.

OK fine a little green. Good thing gold doesn't come off well as a screen color, there are limits to one's generosity. My foray into central planning goes about as expected.

BTW, that wasn't me who junked you the second time ... I was framed!

The question is not whether Goldman knowingly committed Fraud.

The question is, were they uncharacteristically sloppy?

I'll bet Lloyd wishes email was never invented.

See the problem is that the fraud was never dealt with. It was only papered over for a few years with tax-payer money. A fraudulent business model doesn't turn into a prince at midnight. And neither did any of the financial institutions that made fraud their business model. They're still out there, but no one is talking about them. And they'll eventually fail despite the craptastic attempts by the Federal Reserve. It's just a time bomb waiting to go off. Much like the European bank insolvency problem that is also going to explode in the near term.

not sure where the blankfein deal is heading but it takes a while sometimes for the wheels of justice to get rolling. that's the case with financial fraud in the usa, of course. eventually heads will roll as the depression deepens and widens. somebody has to get the blame, and blankfein is the poster boy.

Matt Taibbi Helped a little bringing some of this to the public's eye.

Matt Taibbi went from rating Moscow bars with "fuckies" (the more the merrier, of course) to writing populist articles for the Rolling Stone.  What a fucking intellectual.

Not defending GS by any measure.  Matt is a douchebag, nevertheless.

How does writing about Wall St fraud make him a "douchebag"?

That was not the statement made.  Lots of things make Matt a douchebag, both personally and professionally.  Try reading one of his crappy books.
