This is disturbing. Since the surprise victory of Donald Trump, who of course ran as a populist, the best performing stock in the Dow is Goldman Sachs—the everyman New York investment bank. In the words of Matt Taibbi, Goldman is a “vampire squid wrapped around the face of humanity, relentlessly jamming its blood funnel into anything that smells like money.” Let’s hope the recent price action in Goldman shares isn’t an indicator of the bank’s influence in Washington over the next four years.
