The chief executive of Goldman Sachs, Lloyd Blankfein, believes he’s “doing God’s work.” I didn’t realize God would send the messiah in the form of a bald corporate executive. Doesn’t God’s work involve some level of charity such as helping those less fortunate than you?
While Wall Street profits increased $22.5 billion, about 50 million Americans struggled to eat enough food in 2008. Correct me if I’m wrong, but wasn’t it the tax payers’ money that helped Goldman Sachs and related financial institutions from failing? Now that Goldman Sachs and the rest of Wall Street appear to be back on their feet, I think it’s time for them to return the favor.
Mr. Blankfein, if you truly are the messiah, you can start doing God’s work by helping out the 50 million who are starving in this country. Maybe you and the rest of the suits in your office can do charity work at the local soup kitchen or donate some money/food to help the needy. We know it won’t hurt you financially to take some time off from work or make some donations since you are generously paying yourselves high salaries and bonuses already.
