The must-read article of the year is Matt Taibbi's Rolling Stone expose of Goldman Sachs. If you want to know who's getting rich at your expense, and at the expense of future generations, it's Goldman Sachs bankers. There's a revolving door between Goldman Sachs and Washington D.C., and when in Washington, the banksters implement policies that enrich themselves at the expense of the public. The recent Treasury and Fed multi-trillion-dollar bailout debacle is only the latest example in a long history.
Go buy the new Rolling Stone. Better yet, subscribe. But if you can't wait, you can read the article here.
P.S. Fast-forward to the end of the article to see what the latest Goldman Sachs fleece-the-taxpayers scheme is (hint: there was a vote on it in Congress today).
