Michael Lewis speaks for all of Goldman Sachs when he says, "America stands at a crossroads, and Goldman Sachs now owns both of them." And Spinal Tap makes an appearance on the Daily Show
Michael Lewis Clears Up Misconceptions About Goldman
In a Bloomberg article, Bashing Goldman Sachs Is Simply a Game for Fools, Liar's Poker author Michael Lewis, adopting the persona of a Goldman employee, explains the firm's perspective on recent unflattering press reports. For instance, he debunks the rumor that Goldman Sachs owns the U.S. government: "Every time we hear the phrase 'the United States of Goldman Sachs' we shake our heads in wonder. Every ninth-grader knows that the U.S. government consists of three branches. Goldman owns just one of these outright; the second we simply rent, and the third we have no interest in at all. (Note there isn't a single former Goldman employee on the Supreme Court.)"
