"The logic of the conspiracy theorists in this regard is, of course, impeccable: Goldman alumnus Josh Bolten runs the White House, while his former boss, Hank Paulson, runs the Treasury. They both speak regularly to former Treasury Secretary Bob Rubin, now over at Citigroup, who ran Goldman before Paulson and who keeps Paulson and Bolton dangling like puppets on a string. They all supposedly touch base with the heads of the Italian and Canadian central banksboth Goldman alumniand with Robert Zoellick, head of the World Bank, ex Goldman. What's more Paulson is now getting his advice on how to handle the crisis from Ken Wilson, the recently retired Goldman partner and financial-institutions M&A banker, who Paulson just recruited to Washington to help him out. Already at Treasury were Goldman alumni Dan Jester, Anthony Ryan, David Nason and Bob Hoyt, the department's general counsel. Andthe conspiracy crowd can't help but point outNeel Kashkari, 35, a former vice-president at Goldman who Paulson recruited as assistant secretary of international affairs in 2006, has just been appointedby Paulsonto run, on an interim basis, the new $700 billion bailout fund."

Robert Zoellick (Ex-Goldman) has been pimping free trade for decades. The scum of the earth on Wall Street have been pimping free trade for decades because they make big money off all the money flows and de-industrialization of America. They moved America to a degenerate and faggy WalMart economy of consumers because there was more money in it
The same Wall Street scum who crashed our financial system with derivatives have been killing off American production and industry for years because they made money doing it. If it was up to me they would be marched to the gallows

Goldman Sachs is a lot like a 20 dollar whore but Goldman does not have the standards, integrity, morality, and the good business sense of the whore. It also costs a hell of lot more to use the services of Goldman.
However, both leave you with the same feeling but only one of the business entities delivers what you negotiated for. Might I pose this question to be pondered, which of the two is more ethical in their business standards?
