Goldman Sachs Spokesman Lucas Van Praag Would Like Bonus Speculators To Take A Bow


Earlier this morning we mentioned a story by the Sunday Times which claimed, according to "bankers at Davos," that Lloyd Blankfein would be taking home a $100 million bonus this year.

"There's speculation, and there is stupidity. This speculation transcends the simply stupid and takes it to an entirely new level."
