Taibbi on Goldman Sachs: "Planet-eating Death Star," "Vampire squid"


Goldman Sachs staff will receive the biggest bonuses in the firm's 140-year history this year. In Matt Taibbi's epic Rolling Stone piece this month, he describes the financial firm as "a great vampire squid wrapped around the face of humanity"; and "the planet-eating Death Star of political influence". Sounds about right. Rolling Stone doesn't have a copy online, but there's one here. It's a must-read. (via Bob Lefsetz)
