Goldman Sachs’ Outrageous Scheme to Profit Off Jailed Young Offenders

aa-prison - bars The Rikers experiment is an example of a new trend in what are called “social impact bonds.” Burning questions about who profits and who loses in these schemes have become the subject of debate as the trend catches hold. http://www.alternet.org/economy/goldman-sachs-outrageous-scheme-profit-jailed-young-offenders?paging=off&current_page=1#bookmark

The Vampire Squid, JP Morgan, Dead Bankers and Criminal Acts

aa-Warren Buffet and Lloyd Blankfein They (Goldman Sachs) and their cohorts have essentially hijacked Washington, and to a significant extent the government in London, as well as much of Europe. So the Western world is essentially being held captive by both of these major predatory investment banks, including the major commercial banks such as JP Morgan — they are working hand-in-hand together in many cases. This is a huge threat, not only to the financial system, but what they are doing is a huge threat to people’s individual liberty. I think what these people are doing for their own benefit also has implications that are very negative to the middle classes around the world, which are being slowly wiped out in many countries. But this is all part of the redistribution of wealth and income from the 99% to the 1%. So what’s working for the big banks is not working for populations around the world. This is why the destructive and sociopathic activities these people are engaged in needs to be addressed. And as has been disclosed on so many different occasions, what these banks are engaged in is illegal, and criminal in nature. Yet they keep doing it. http://kingworldnews.com/kingworldnews/KWN_DailyWeb/Entries/2014/2/16_The_Vampire_Squid%2C_JP_Morgan%2C_Dead_Bankers_%26_Criminal_Acts.html

Goldman Sachs Above the Law

Goldman Sachs stays one-step ahead of a critical mass meltdown, much of its own creation. The risks taken by this firm do not end with their former partners or current shareowners. This house of cards is entrenched in the IOU pecuniary system. What visibly sets Goldman Sachs apart from the rest of Wall Street is their network of entangling influences in every corner and crack of government, media, business and the courts. No other financial organization enjoys picking financial policy makers on every level in the process. If Congress cannot get the Department of Justice to follow the law, who can honestly believe that a viable Presidential candidate can buck the Wall Street culture that controls and funds the two party facade? http://www.batr.org/negotium/081512.html

Goldman Sachs: Making Money by Stealing It

Money power in private hands and democracy can’t co-exist. Wall Street crooks transformed America into an unprecedented money making racket. Goldman symbolizes master of the universe of financial manipulation (Reuters April 16, 2011) It’s been involved in nearly all financial scandals since the 19th century. It makes money the old-fashioned way, through market manipulation, the scamming of investors, bribing political Washington, having its executives in top administration posts, and getting open-ended low or no interest rate bailouts when needed. It’s business model and culture assure billions of bonus dollars for company officials, complicit traders, and others on the take. Compared to Goldman, Bernie Madoff was small-time. http://globalresearch.ca/index.php?context=va&aid=29823

Why I Am Leaving Goldman Sachs

Today is my last day at Goldman Sachs. After almost 12 years at the firm — first as a summer intern while at Stanford, then in New York for 10 years, and now in London — I believe I have worked here long enough to understand the trajectory of its culture, its people and its identity. And I can honestly say that the environment now is as toxic and destructive as I have ever seen it. http://www.nytimes.com/2012/03/14/opinion/why-i-am-leaving-goldman-sachs.html?_r=3&pagewanted=1&smid=fb-share.

Goldman Sachs Has Taken Over

Germany, which has been browbeaten since its defeat in World War II, has been made constitutionally incapable of strong leadership. Any sign of German leadership is quickly quelled by dredging up remembrances of the Third Reich. As a consequence, Germany has been pushed into an European Union that intends to destroy the political sovereignty of the member governments, just as Abe Lincoln destroyed the sovereignty of the American states. Who will rule the New Europe? Obviously, the private European banks and Goldman Sachs. http://www.themoneyparty.org/main/?p=3134#more-3134

BBC Speechless As Trader Tells Truth: ‘The Collapse Is Coming and Goldman Sachs Rules The World’

In an interview on BBC News this morning that left the hosts gob-smacked (google it… it is the BBC after all), Alessio Rastani outlines in a mere three-and-a-half-minutes what we all know and most ignore. While the whole interview is worth watching, the money shot for us was “This economic crisis is like a cancer, if you just wait and wait hoping it is going to go away, just like a cancer it is going to grow and it will be too late!”. While he dreams of recessions, sees Goldman ruling the world, and urges people to prepare, it is hard to disagree with much (or actually anything) of what he says and obviously interventions and machinations means we will have days like this (in Silver for instance), there is only one endgame here and we hope there is less hopeful euphoria (and more preparedness) as we pull back the curtain further and further. http://www.zerohedge.com/news/bbc-speechless-trader-tells-truth-collapse-comingand-goldman-rules-world

The People vs. Goldman Sachs

Lloyd Blankfein

They weren’t murderers or anything; they had merely stolen more money than most people can rationally conceive of, from their own customers, in a few blinks of an eye. But then they went one step further. They came to Washington, took an oath before Congress, and lied about it. http://readersupportednews.org/off-site-news-section/81-81/5966-the-people-vs-goldman-sachs

Lloyd Blankfein, Vampire at Large

Lloyd Blankfein

When historians look back on this time of the most pervasive corruptions at all levels of society, one name will stand as the icon above all the rest. That name will be Goldman Sachs. Lloyd Blankfein’s comment about doing God’s work will also be remembered as the ultimate in hubris and sheer naked, panting greed. http://zippittydodah.blogspot.com/2010/04/lloyd-blankfein-vampire-at-large.html

Goldman Sachs in the Dock

The public is paying close attention to developments in the case and video clips from the senate subcommittee hearings have been widely circulated on the Internet and used as fodder by late-night comedians. The depth and severity of the ongoing recession has created a need to find a scapegoat, one company who more than any other embodies the recklessness and voracity which led to the biggest financial crisis since the Great Depression. Goldman Sachs is that company. http://www.counterpunch.org/whitney04302010.html

The Goldman Sachs Indictment

The Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) filed a civil case Friday against giant investment bank Goldman Sachs charging “fraudulent misconduct” in relation to $1 billion of worthless sub-prime mortgage securities Goldman palmed off to its clients in 2007. The SEC’s submission to New York’s Southern District Court provides a devastating glimpse into the criminal activities of a financial oligarchy that was not only indifferent to the destructive social consequences of its operations, but eager to profit from a crisis precipitated by its own speculative activities. http://globalresearch.ca/index.php?context=va&aid=18818

Goldman Sachs Eats Its Young

This should be a lesson to all those young, aggressive, upwardly mobile Wall Street wannabes who think they are somehow going to fast track their way into the stratosphere of high finance. Sorry, kids! There’s no room left at the top, and soon you’re going to see even those old money families tearing each other apart for what’s left of a collapsing fiat money system that has just about run its course. http://revoltoftheplebs.wordpress.com/2010/04/20/goldman-sachs-eats-its-young/

Goldman Sachs: The Bank That Thought It Ruled the World

‘Long-term greedy” was the phrase that Sidney Weinberg, Goldman Sachs’s legendary managing partner from the 1930s to the 1960s, used to describe the American investment bank’s overarching strategy. Such a pious mission statement from a corporate titan would make a modern audience balk. However the phrase neatly encapsulates the way that Goldman Sachs has operated over the past 80 years, a period in which it has risen from being a little-known, slightly scrubby broker to the world’s most profitable, powerful and controversial financial institution. When Lloyd Blankfein, Goldman Sachs’s current chairman and chief executive, was caught saying last year that the bank was doing “God’s work”, the contrast between Goldman Sachs’s own view of its business and what the rest of the world thought of it was vividly demonstrated. http://www.telegraph.co.uk/finance/newsbysector/banksandfinance/7605996/Goldman-Sachs-the-bank-that-thought-it-ruled-the-world.html

There is 'CAPITALISM' and all that one can appreciate about hard work and getting ahead , and then there is 'Jewish Capitalism', that which stinks of corruption and exploitation! There's a difference.
