    Ping Jiang: “I Left SAC Capital On Good Terms”

    Oh didja now big boy? So you’re saying you were happy to leave after they fired you in February 2008, for failing to make it rain like you used to? You didn’t shout “sexist pigs!” as you were escorted from the building? You didn’t even think it? While you marinade on that, let me just […]

    Does Dick Fuld Dream Of Electric Sheep?

    Citi Never Sleeps: The Ad Campaign

    When we learned this morning that Citi CEO Vikram Pandit had announced at 5:03 this morning that the financial giant was adopting “Citi Never Sleeps” as its new company motto, we immediately began anticipating the new advertising campaign that Citi will doubtlessly unveil. And then we decided we couldn’t wait for Citi. Pandit’s got a […]

    The Dollar Got The Blues

    It’s no surprise that this song was written by an American living in Paris, since the deterioration of the dollar often shows up first and most obviously in foreign exchanges. Well, the Dollar Got the Blues again so we thought we’d put this up as our third video this morning. Hat tip:

    We Nominate These Guys To Take Over Yahoo

    One of the gripes against Yahoo CEO Jerry Wang is that he’s a socially inept nerd who seems completely unable to talk to investors, Wall Street or, we’re guessing, the ladies. So, in advance of today’s earnings news, we hereby nominate Gabe and Max to run Yahoo. We know it’s a bold call but, well, […]

    One Of Us Stinks

    There’s an old story about the day Humphrey Bogart went to see a performance by a Bogart impersonator. After the show someone asks Bogart what he thought. The star replied, “One of us stinks.” We were reminded of this story when we watched the clip above from the movie Boiler Room. One of the brilliant […]

What’s more, as long as our friends who still work in finance are ponying up for the table—which apparently costs around $8000—there’s […]
