Laughing at Goldman Sachs

In case you missed it, Greg Smith wrote an op-ed about leaving Goldman Sachs in The New York Times yesterday that has been getting reaction since the moment it was published. In the piece, Smith laments that the company is unrecognizable to him now, and that — shockingly — making money is the priority, not people. He also reveals that Goldman Sachs refers to clients as “Muppets.”

Below, some of the best reactions to the article.

  • @KenTremendous “Hang on hang on hang on. You’re telling me that Goldman Sachs is a rapacious, immoral, money-obsessed company? Since when?!”

  • “What’s missing in his op-ed is any sense of mea culpa, any sense that he was at all part of the problem.” Felix Salmon, at Reuters.
  • @BorowitzReport “Today’s NYTimes covers the fallout from the Times’ Goldman Op-Ed. Tomorrow: coverage of the fallout from that coverage.”
