Crisis, Currencies, EU, Economy, Europe, Finance, USA Take a look around Europe these days and you will find a former Goldman Sachs hand on almost every tiller of every treasury.
Famously dubbed “Goldmine Sachs,” then “a great vampire squid wrapped around the face of humanity” by Rolling Stone’s Matt Taibbi, this firm sits at the heart of world banking mis-regulation and barbarism. Their private empire is well on the way to buying up every democratic institution with the capacity to oppose them. Since the 2011 Euro crisis, the governments of Belgium, France, Germany, Greece, Ireland and Italy have been cursed with one or more former Goldman Sachs executives in their key financial positions. At the beginning of 2013 Britain, too, brought in Mark Carney from Switzerland’s sinister central bankers’ central bank, the Bank for International Settlements (BIS). He, too, is ex-Goldman Sachs, as is the European Central Bank’s president, Mario Draghi.
