GoldmanSachs666 Message Board

According to the Collins English Dictionary 10th Edition fraud can be defined as: "deceit, trickery, sharp practice, or breach of confidence, perpetrated for profit or to gain some unfair or dishonest advantage".[1] In the broadest sense, a fraud is an intentional deception made for personal gain or to damage another individual; the related adjective is fraudulent. The specific legal definition varies by legal jurisdiction. Fraud is a crime, and also a civil law violation. Defrauding people or entities of money or valuables is a common purpose of fraud, but there have also been fraudulent "discoveries", e.g. in science, to gain prestige rather than immediate monetary gain

Volcker Speaks on the Volcker Rule

“Nonbanks by and large are not regulated as tightly as banks,” Mr. Volcker said. But “if they got into trouble, the theory is that they will not be rescued, but they will have an orderly demise.”

Responding to a question about Goldman Sachs, which became a bank holding company in September 2008, Mr. Volcker said they would have to make a choice.

“The implication for Goldman Sachs or any other institution is do you want to be a bank?” he said. “If you don’t want to follow those rules, you want to go out and do a lot of proprietary stuff, fine, but don’t do it with a banking license.”

Goldman Server Accused of High-Speed Voting
February 12, 2010, 7:32 am

A group leading a campaign to implement what it calls the Robin Hood tax, which would target bankers, says that a vote it held on the levy was hit by artificial opposition, with 5,000 votes pouring in against it the space of 20 minutes, The Guardian reports.

The group claims that it traced the votes to two servers, one of which is registered to Goldman Sachs.

In response to the incident, Goldman said: “We have just received this information, and we are investigating the matter fully.”

The measure, the group’s Web site says, is “a tiny tax on bankers that would raise billions to tackle poverty and climate change.”
