Any close relation to Jeffrey Sachs of the Earth Institute (Columbia?)

This is vaguely interesting: Samuel Sachs and Philip Lehman were buddies.

Stray factoids: Jamie Dimon (Papademetriou)’s family and Peter Peterson (Petropoulos) were/are very close to the Rockefeller family. Both have poor immigrant ancestor stories too — Dimon’s grandfather Panos was supposedly a disgruntled busboy who got a job at a branch of the Bank of Athens. Peterson’s father is said to have had a diner.

The Dimon family’s choice of americanized name is curious. There was a prominent Dimon family in the States at the time of the Civil war.

Have to throw in a couple of tweets here too by Interfluidity-

“It is very deeply corrupt, but by socially prevailing norms, it no longer qualifies as corruption”

“Our ironic worldweary cynicism, undermines our ability to tend to institutional hygiene almost entirely. “

Are you accusing Goldman of sharing confidential J Crew information with TPG or Clearwire info with Sprint? That’s a pretty serious charge.

Otherwise it just seems like they’re following the money. Why is that a crime?
