It’s a bit of apples to oranges in my opinion, and in all likelihood this settlement in GS’s case will probably force Blankfein to resign much earlier than he might have otherwise.

Ugh, somehow it feels a little dirty coming to GS defense, but I just think the mudslinging is starting to go too far. Time to bring Chuck Prince or Bob Rubin or Hank Greenberg (or any of another dozen or so former top execs) into play as having a much bigger hand in the causes of the recession than trading practices at GS. Just saying…
