    Vikram Pandit Just Wants To Say One Word Acronym To You

    “Bon appétit,” says Pandit, as he slices into a beetroot and continues to extol the virtues of something he calls the “SMAC stack”. I tell him this sounds awful but, he assures me, “it’s the vernacular for the ease for which you can get into business today,” and it stands for “Social media, Mobility, Applications […]

    Attention Astenbeck People

    The good news is that you’re up 16% this year even after January’s ominous little hiccup. The bad news is that the last time old Andy Hall put together four good months in a row, he ended up losing money for the first time in 14 years. Oh yea, and he was up 18% through […]

    Three Possible Explanations For Dick Parsons’s Seemingly Pathological Lies About Playing College Basketball

    Sandy Weill Didn’t Pay $43.7 Million To Live At 15 Central Park West And Read His Copy Of Cat Fancy A Week After It Hit Newsstands

    It pays to be an employee at 15 Central Park West. Author Michael Gross reports in House of Outrageous Fortune, his new book about the behemoth condo building, that the average worker there made $22,500 in tips during the holiday season in 2011, give or take a few Benjamins…Not bad for tending to a tower […]

    Sleep Where Sandy Weill’s Son Hath Slept

    The former Citigroup chairman bought the property next to his house in Greenwich hoping it’d become “a family compound,” and while his son Marc built a house on it and lived there for four years, in 2008 he sold it back to dad and split for NYC. So! What do you get for $14 million […]

    Richard Parsons: So You Want To Start Your Own Vineyard

    “You’re a farmer. You can’t control the weather. When you make a Brunello, you have to follow a set of rules. One is no interference with nature. You can’t irrigate in a dry year. I happen to like traditional methods. I’m kind of old school. If you’re someone who balks at following rules, you can […]

    You Haven’t Seen The Last Of Vikram Pandit

    Perhaps, you thought, that the day Vikram Pandit was abruptly and unceremoniously fired from Citigroup was the end. That we’d lost him for good. That he’d retreat to the his Upper West Side manse and spend his days beefing up his Odd Couple memorabilia collection, or work on that novel about a love that dare not speak its name between a bank CEO and the analyst who only acted like she hated him, or build that Zen garden he’d always wanted that the fucks at Citi never let him have. That he was finished with Wall Street. Well fret not. Uncle Vik wouldn’t never do that to you.

    Bob Rubin Didn’t See That Pool Over There

    In a hypothetical scenario, which former treasury secretary, among all the living ones, do you think would be most likely to drink his face off and fall in a pool? Process of elimination should point to Larry Summers, with Hank Paulson being an interesting dark horse, right? Except, wrong! Big Poppa, that we know of, […]
