Here is the wheel of fortune of our times  

This map represents the connections and relationships of Goldman Sachs Group Inc., Goldman Sachs International, Goldman Sachs Japan, Goldman Sachs Europe Limited, Goldman Sachs Capital Partners, Goldman Sachs Asset Management, Goldman Sachs Hedge Fund Strategies LLC, Goldman Sachs Bank USA, Goldman Sachs (Asia) LLC

Below I will post a link to the interactive version where you can click on each of the boxes with a + sign and get more information and see even further connections. I will also post a list of all these many connections. I posted a smaller version of this wheel last night in Badabing’s diary, Matt Taibbi Pulls the Rug Out on Goldman Sachs – AGAIN… and am flushing it out for you all by request. Consider this a reference. I hope others will add to it.

Here is what the wheel looks like when expanded:

And here it is in it’s noctural form, the “great vampire squid wrapped around the face of humanity, relentlessly jamming its blood funnel into anything that smells like money”. -Matt Taibbi

  1. We need to get a much bigger slingshot to take down this Frankenstein Goliath.

    Cross posted at Naranjastan, assistance there appreciated for more eyeballs.

    • Edger on July 17, 2009 at 7:24 pm

    copy and paste the code here, CD. I tweaked it so it will work here…

  2. Just a reminder that Jon Corzine, former Goldman Sachs CEO, is now governor of New Jersey. Obama was on the stump yesterday with him, campaigning for his re-election. They way Obama was talking about holding Wall Street accountable almost made a listener believe he and Corzine were looking out for the little guy.

    Instead listening to the president, I’ve concluded that when it comes to regulating our financial industry and economics in general, Obama is in way over his head. So rather than finding ways to put Wall Street firms like Goldman Sachs under our control, he’s under their control. Economically, Obama has been a disappointment to me.

    dismantled, whatever.

    It’s got to.

    Did you see Jon Stewart last night, on the situation with the bonuses?

    It’s pure theivery.  

    Why is Bernard Madoff is in jail, and not these guys?  What is the difference?  None.

  3. it to me.  It will be interesting to read a true backstory on how Obama actually got to where he is.  Me thinks it may be quite explosive.  

  4. More on Max:

    Keiser has appeared as a financial ‘talking-head’ on a number of news-networks. His appearances are remarkable for the often incendiary nature of his remarks. For example, Keiser called for a “fatwa” against Hank Paulson on Al Jazeera in response to the TARP fund. In a later-broadcast Keiser was seen ranting “Paulson Stinks”.

  5. I just found this article, released today that says

    Goldman Sachs’ bonus bonanza

       Banking bonuses returned with a vengeance this week as Goldman Sachs reported record profits in the second quarter. Despite the worst banking crisis since the Great Depression, the Wall Street bank managed quarterly earnings of $3.44bn – almost double its healthy returns for the first quarter – suggesting the bank has turned by the clock to its salad days of 2006.

       The firm has already set aside $11.3bn to hand out to its employees for their work over the last six months. The average pay per employee looks set to come in at around $1m this year, according to City AM.

    Lets repeat that shall we?

       The average pay per employee looks set to come in at around $1m this year!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    A commenter over at dkos suggested that this list of people in the diary might just represent that nasty 1% that has screwed up this country. Can you imagine making a million bonus for 6 months of “work” while the rest of the country and most of the rest of the world goes down the toilet bowl or up in flames? I mean, if you weren’t a complete heartless amoral thief?

    This is so totally Marie Antoinette and Louis 14th, man. Put some 3 foot wigs on those assholes and bring on the knitting lady. Madame Defarge, I believe she is.  

  6. Great videos.  Thanks for putting them here.
