A senior London-based investment banker has apparently bet that Lloyd Blankfein will be out at Goldman Sachs within two years and he said he would back it up with millions of pounds.
Asked about the wager over Mr. Blankfein, Goldman spokesman Lucas van Praag said: "It is preposterous that The Wall Street Journal would even consider publishing such effluent."
But preposterous or not, there is a much bigger question here. Who, who in the world could possibly replace Lloyd? Who is prepared, willing and ready to do God's work?
(And who is that "London-based senior i-banker?")
