One of the tasks I least enjoy is attending financial services social media conferences. How odd, you might ask? Isn't that her job? Yes, but th...
Neel Kashkari is a former Goldman Sachs Golden Boy who left that infamous organization to join the Treasury Department, where he was responsible for overseeing $700 billion in bailouts to his former employer and other Wall Street firms. Now he wants to run for governor of California on that record.
Regarding the #AskJPM blowup, one article began by asking the right question: "What were they thinking?" The answer is, they weren't thinking; they were all talking to themselves and like-minded executives.
I assume Segarra's suit isn't the publicity Blankfein was hoping for, and I wonder what's going on at the NY Fed. When I was at Monster Worldwide, I experienced first-hand Goldman Sachs "doing God's work."
JPMorgan Chase stands accused of essentially funneling funds to Wen Jiabao's only daughter to win business in China, bringing a federal probe. Yet the takeaway here merely reinforces a truth that has long been evident to those paying attention to the pungent interplay of money and power in China: Despite the prattling of global business leaders that their presence in China is a wholesome boon to justice and right, they have frequently enriched themselves by engaging in the very dirty doings they claim to disdain.

Goldman is spending handsomely to promote its small business friendly image. But when it comes to actually helping small business, Goldman is far more miserly.
I'll stick to a simple rule of thumb. If someone won't put a questionable instruction in writing and there are no clear policies or guidelines to support that instruction, then I'll let my moral compass guide me.
Who would want me now?" is the question I've been asked by hundreds of women -- stay-at-home Moms for 10 years or more -- who have fear and trepidation about transitioning to a paid job.
