If anyone had told me that I would read an article in Rolling Stone magazine I would have told them they were crazy, but I am indebted to a good friend for recently bringing this article to my attention. Let me direct your attention to an excellent and revealing piece from the #1075 issue of Rolling Stone (July 9-23, 2009) by Matt Taibbi titled: THE BIG TAKEOVER.
The essence of this informative and shocking report is, “The global economic crisis isn’t about money – it’s about power. How Wall Street insiders are using the bailout to stage a revolution.” We are all very familiar with the famous investment banking house Goldman Sachs, and all the government officials who are alumni. Taibbi reveals an extremely interesting analysis of events over a long period of time directly involving Goldman Sachs’ behind the scenes, devious involvement in today’s crisis.
The original article is a very long read, but definitely worth your time. If you want to see a synopsis, go to Google and list (Rolling Stone magazine- Matt Taibbi) and you will find a two part summary.
What I find to be most disappointing is the fact that once these appalling revelations were exposed there was no retribution or repercussions. Apparently, the big fix is in at the highest levels of our government. Why has Goldman Sachs been permitted over a very long period of time to literally steal vast sums of money from the citizens of our country and the world?
After reading the full article, I have come to the conclusion that the average Joe doesn’t have a chance, because Goldman Sachs has such a deep penetration into the inner-working of our government. Now the question is, what can we do about it and what are we going to do about it?
