Goldman Sachs

Goldman Sachs is very much in the news.  The most astute comment on Goldman these days comes from a taxi driver in Kuala Lumpur:

“Why does Goldman Sachs run your government? What’s wrong with America is that it’s run by investment bankers, mostly from the same bank. How can Americans stand for it? Is Barack Obama from Goldman Sachs, too?”

The global citizenry deserve an answer from the current Administration to the taxi drivers question.
