What's with Goldman Sachs?...Part 2.

Part 1 is here.

In early July 2009, I posted interesting observations surrounding this company. Glenn Beck of Fox News recently took a close look at Goldman and found an intriguing web around this company. While you may disagree with his conclusions that there is some kind of conspiracy, the dangers of one company's influence on a govt is very real and not something one can be complacent about. One thing Glenn Beck pointed out is looking at how and where people in govt is recruited from and the subsequent decisions they take can throw up red-flags that requires a closer look and examination.

It makes sense- why a few FIs get saved while not others.....its really a big con job.

anon 12:25,

One friend of mine actually told me he heard that Goldman placed big buy orders in late March & early April..and that signaled that a rally was in the making.

Goldman is either very accurate because it has "additional" information, or it has some hidden influence on the market.

And where the hell is Mr Volcker?

Yeah Obama stands for change.
If we turn the clock back 40 years, would Lucky be kissing the ground that LKY walks on?

the bottom 80% (financially) of sinkapooreans form the majority of Lucky's readers. They are there for a reason.

This topic is beyond them and since they are already poor ... GS has very limited infuence on them.

Glenn Beck is a nut job:

Here's a fairer (but still negative) view of GS:

Goldman Sachs is the most powerfull political party in America masquerading as an investment bank..

make no mistake about this, investment bankers are the robber barons of the 21st century.

Now I know why Warren Buffett only invests in Goldman Sachs and not other FIs.

He is aware of what is going on and respond to it.

Warren Buffet, son of a powerful Republican congressman, also invested in Wells Fargo (who almost bankrupted Citi by taking over Wachovia).

Hey Lucky ... give us a heads up when u think the rally is coming to an end ok?

I search Lucky's blog and could not find an instance when he did that.

Please don't lie.

Are you out of your mind? Obama stands and acts for change, never mind he is financially support by Goldman Sachs.

As for LKY when did he really stands for change? Sure, he championed for democracy verbally when he was the opposition but his actions was diametrically opposite when he came into power. He has moved Singapore back to feudalism repackaged, don't you see that? So how could you compare Obama with LKY?

And how do you know that? You're just guessing. May be you yourself are paid a paltry amount by PAP to talk rubbish here.

What change? Obama has done nothing different from Bush.

I guess if we turn the clock 40 years, Lucky will have you for company... kissing the ground that LKY walks on... just cos he makes a few right noises.

I have a problem trying to understand your confused thinking.

If as you say Obama obviously does'nt stand for change why would someone like Lucky who is wanting change be an admirer of Obama? And what has that to do with LKY?

Furthermore Lucky is talking about Goldman Sachs and not about Obama or LKY.

The cork thing is of all the FIs that our two funds pumped in billions into, not a single cent is invested in Goldman Sachs.

anon 14:24,

Glenn Beck has a conservative audience to entertain. I would be careful and check what he says. However, like I said I don't buy any of his conspiracies but the web that he drew on the board is factually correct.
