    Al Sharpton Impressed By Lloyd Blankfein’s Humble Upbringing

    It’s a pretty well-known fact that Lloyd Blankfein, unlike some of his other colleagues on the Wall Street, was not born a little rich boy. Because before he knew Street life, LB knew street life, lower-case ‘s,’ having grown up in the projects in Brooklyn. Apparently Al Sharpton was not aware of Lloyd’s bio, which […]

    Is A London-Based Investment Banker About To Make A Few Million Pounds Off Lloyd Blankfein?

    Almost three months ago, an absurd story appeared in the Wall Street Journal, which quoted an unnamed senior London-based investment banker, who’d said he’d bet a bunch of people at Davos a few million pounds that Lloyd Blankfein would be out as CEO of Goldman Sachs within two years.
