Some brilliant news. Goldman Sachs is planning to raise $5 billion to pay back some of the $10 billion it received last year from the Tarp programme.
Lloyd Blankfein phoned me last night, and this is what he said: 'Mikey, man, we're back, man! Goldman is back! (Fuckin' A, Lloyd!) We are the mystical lords of capitalism, and no one is going to fuck with us now. (Fuckin' A, Lloyd!) I just want to thank you, Michael, for all the support you gave us through the hard times. (It was a pleasure, Lloyd.) You're a beautiful man, man. You know that, don't you?'
Thank you, Lloyd.
