Forum Post: Goldman kicked out of the Ivy League

"Goldman Sachs Group Inc. and Morgan Stanley are getting a chilly reception at top colleges, including Harvard University and Princeton University, as campus offshoots of Occupy Wall Street target investment-bank recruiting events.

Goldman Sachs canceled visits to Harvard and Brown University last week following a November incident where Occupy Harvard protesters attempted to enter a recruitment session. Students at Yale University, Princeton and Cornell University have also rallied at campus events by investment firms."

I recognize that these are the kids of the 1%, but, hey, it's a start.

Goldman Sachs canceled the visits, the universities did not. There seems to be an arrogant power-play going on, I'm seeing it at amazon.com right now. They're attempting to first legitimize their hegemony by acting ballsy, a sort of failure or defiant attempt to disregard social consciousness. They're testing the waters, hubris may kill them, and I'm confident that Occupy is working to alter the climate, simply creating conditions that harshly repudiate the anti-social protocol that Goldman Sachs and amazon.com have been successfully running with for way too long now.

38 partners just left the firm. they will let gs fail but transition to a new company with same people running the show. It is that easy to dupe the public.

  1. 48 percent of all Americans are either considered to be "low income" or are living in poverty.

  2. 57 percent of all children in the United States are living in homes that are either considered to be "low income" or impoverished.

  3. 77 percent of all U.S. small businesses do not plan to hire any more workers.

  4. There are fewer payroll jobs in the United States today than there were back in 2000 even though we have added 30 million extra people to the population since then.

That's why we need to get the economy growing and the way to do that is cut spending so that the markets build confidence.

Wrong. Only targeted, effective, fair and just spending will work. We tried deficit reduction, tax cuts, etc. It does not work. It is insane to keep doing something that does not work.

You appear to be one of those who are just outside the 48% shilling for the people who have destroyed the economy.

So what country spent themselves to prosperity? How's that Solyndra investment working, employing a lot of people?

Who is to say its effective, the President who has never worked in a for profit organization or employed a person in his life. Do you think he knows how to read a financial statement. Do you think he has sweated out making payroll.

It has to be personal here. Why do you want to know about me?

I know these are minor grips from the racist right. How did that Geo W Bush thing work out for you? Enron, WorldCom, Lehman, and you want to talk about a minor, appropriate investment in a new tech company. Go back to sleep.....

The government didn't invest in Enron, Worldcom or Lehman. There was no tax payer money involved. That's the point. They should have let AIG go as well.

Yeah racist, that's the best you can do?

Truth is all I need. And if you think the govt did not invest in W/C, Enron or Leh, then you do not know how to read a financial statement.

I know you are smarter than me, you probably work for the government. You are right, I can't read a financial statement, so please enlighten me.

You aren't racist against dumb people are you, I could be white and from the South.

Is that all you've got? Really?..Not a fact anywhere in sight....go back to sleep. We'll wake you when it's time to get up...

Your the one who said there was government money involved, not me.

Really clever sleep comments by the way. Did you use to be a comedian. Seriously, do you work for the government?
