The People vs. Goldman Sachs

12 May

Here’s the kicker for Matt Taibbi’s article in Rolling Stone:

A Senate committee has laid out the evidence. Now the Justice Department should bring criminal charges

And here’s the first paragraph:

They weren’t murderers or anything; they had merely stolen more money than most people can rationally conceive of, from their own customers, in a few blinks of an eye. But then they went one step further. They came to Washington, took an oath before Congress, and lied about it.

Yep. What’re the chances that they’ll get more than a slap on the wrist, if that? The answer to that depends, in part, on how much We the People kick up a fuss. And even then, it’s iffy if anything more than a wet noodle will be used to slap those wrists with the gold handcuffs.
