The Goldman Sachs/Greg Smith Matter: Readers Respond

Indeed, if Goldman executives would lie, cheat and steal bagels, as far as some readers are concerned:

  • Did Greg Smith tell the world anything it didn't already know about Goldman Sachs?
  • In some strongly worded language, JakeinTexas says it doesn't matter what we already knew.

    "For those who had not heard of Goldman, plenty -- he was an insider from another country who, at one point enjoyed working there and sheds more light on how sleazy Cohn and Blankfein are and how a great firm has just become a joke."

    JakeinTexas continued, "For those who, like me, who had friends working at Goldman in the early 90s, it merely confirms that Goldman has become just another boiler room operation, AND, for those smart young people who are thinking of going to Goldman or another Wall Street firm, like my cousin, it will give them pause and think, 'do I really want to work for a sleazebag company run by two sleazeballs?' "

    Indeed, among all the debate over the Greg Smith attack on Goldman, one thing is certain: It's more profitable to be a sleazeball than a Muppet.
