The rise and rise of Goldman Sachs

Al Capone; a fine, upstanding citizen - in comparison to Goldman Sachs

A very interesting article from Rolling Stone, lifting the lid on the bank at the heart of the Wall Street hijacking of the world economy.

As Matt Taibbi writes:

"If you want to understand how we got into this financial crisis, you have to first understand where all the money went - and in order to understand that, you need to understand what Goldman has already gotten away with. It is a history exactly five bubbles long - including last year's strange and seemingly inexplicable spike in the price of oil. There were a lot of losers in each of those bubbles, and in the bailout that followed but Goldman wasn't one of them."
