Comments on: Why Goldman didn’t see the SEC suit coming http://blogs.reuters.com/felix-salmon/2010/04/19/why-goldman-didnt-see-the-sec-suit-coming/ A slice of lime in the soda Sun, 26 Oct 2014 19:05:02 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: jstaf http://blogs.reuters.com/felix-salmon/2010/04/19/why-goldman-didnt-see-the-sec-suit-coming/comment-page-1/#comment-13773 Wed, 21 Apr 2010 03:08:24 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/felix-salmon/?p=3479#comment-13773 Nice to see some justice, it is the ancient and only cure for a society deceived by leaders and cheated by bankers. It is a shame, going to be hard to change so until we invent and honest with no greed pill then we need to try to create ever more effective regulators so that markets can be trusted.

Once you have trust then money flows, jobs are created and society prospers, we did it the last century with a safer system to provide financing for businesses and individuals, we need a safer and different set of tools that are up to the task of modern markets.

Moving the CDO’s to Vegas would be a step in the right direction also so that money can be invested in companies instead of hedge funds in bank clothing.

Ha ha ha ha. Oh Ron Paul has really had a lot of influence over Republican governance. What a sense of humor.

So, it sounds like GS knew the SEC had an issue.

But still it has to be said that Wall Street’s greatest friends in Washington are Democrats, starting with Chucky Schumer and the New York delegation. Chris Dodd is running a close second.

Get ready for Wall Street reform, written by Wall Street, like we had health care insurance reform, written by the insurance industry. Oh, joy.

this is empirical observation, not shameless politicking.

Larry Summers, Bob Rubin and Barney Frank tower above almost everyone else (Alan Greenspan excepted) as authors of the present global travails.

The two figures I can think of who would take the severest stance toward banks (by ending the Federal Reserve policy of interest rate charity and undemocratic wealth transfer to banks) are Ron Paul and Mike “Mish” Shedlock.

How about “a chairman finally willing to do her job”
