Blankfein’s Clan: “Put on Earth to Make Money”
9:24 pm, April 30th | by Amy Tennery
William Cohan, author and Goldman Sachs aficionado, was on “The Daily Show” and he had some choice things to say about the “vampire squid” of finance (tip of the hat to Taibbi). Cohan is releasing a compendium on Goldman’s role in the financial collapse (and it’s role in our hearts and minds), called “Money and Power: How Goldman Sachs Came to Rule the World.” “They’re a collection of very smart people who were put on earth to make money,” Cohan said. Oh dear. None of us are safe?
