We’ve discussed this before. Why are the behemoths of Wall Street paying bonuses to executives who do tours in Washington?
Could it be that the banks see it akin to serving in the National Guard or something, that these executives are helping their fellow man and so deserve a little something extra?
No. More likely they are paying these guys extra money because the banks know that having representatives at the very highest levels of government is very profitable and a good form of insurance.
Goldman and the Fed are very close. Let’s just say they vacation together. Share a beach house in the Hamptons.
Well I think we can guess with this video where Hillary thinks she needs to do some work.
I mean the video speaks to me as a dude. See, Hilary’s down to earth.

Hey Hillary, you’re “pragmatic.” You look pretty good. Here’s $100 million. Now go knock em’ dead.
Given that she supported renewing the Export-Import Bank of the United States, Boeing’s bank, one of the most egregious examples of crony capitalism there is, Ms. Warren also chose to support Wall Street. Additionally, her baby the Consumer Financial Financial Board is (illegally?) housed within the Federal Reserve (not subject to Congressional funding oversight) and has become a lobbyist mill already.
