Matt Taibbi of Rolling Stone famously described Goldman Sachs as "a great vampire squid wrapped around the face of humanity relentlessly jamming its blood funnel into anything that smells like money." Here's the article: http://www.rollingstone.com/politics/news/the-great-american-bubble-machine-20100405
We should line up outside Goldman's world headquarters in NYC -- 200 West Street New York, NY 10282 -- (only 19 minute walk from Zuccotti Park) and stand there with résumés, asking for these jobs back that Goldman destroyed...
Reporter: "Why are you here with thousands of protesters demonstrating outside of Goldman Sachs?"
Interviewee: "Protesting Goldman??" I'm looking for a job. Goldman engaged in practices that resulted in the loss of countless jobs in recent years while profiting heavily and giving huge bonuses to its employees. Goldman took a bunch of jobs from our economy. We just want them back. They must be here somewhere so we're here in line with our resumes....waiting patiently to talk to them about the jobs. (Hands resume to reporter....
Resume says. "reasons I think I'm qualified to work here: 1) I would sell my own mother or buy yours to make a buck. 2) I'm not embarrassed to get huge bonuses for shuffling paper while millions of Americans are out of work and suffering. Etc.

If you haven't seen the award-winning film "Inside Job" narrated by Matt Damon, be sure to check it out. Impeccably researched and tells the real story behind the economic collapse. It was not an accident. Hard to believe. But it's true.

They bet on food and drove up prices so I that hunger went up 25% in one year. See this link for more info: http://occupywallst.org/forum/why-goldman-sachs-owes-250-million-hungry-people-a/ . Foreign Policy Magazine.
