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

Goldman Sachs Links and News - Weekend Edition -- March 28, 2010

Larry's Corner
Many of you enjoy our daily News Links feature and visit us daily for the latest in Goldman news.  You have probably noticed that we have not posted any since last Monday, March 22nd and I felt I owed all of you loyal followers an explanation.  So here it is.

I had a heart attack last Tuesday, March 23rd.  I know it is not a very good excuse for not posting but quite honestly, I just didn't feel up to it.  Seriously though, I was fortunate in that I was in the Emergency Room when "the big one" struck and that - according to one of the doctors - probably saved my life.  I was actually waiting in the ER to be admitted for "observation" as initially they found no visible signs of any heart problems - until I actually had an attack right then and there.  They moved quickly, moved me to the Cardiac Cath Lab and inserted a stent in the one artery that was causing the immediate blockage.  The good news, I was released Thursday and feel fine - though my physical activities are limited.  Fortunately, I have no restrictions on the use of my fingers so I can now continue my work here at GS666.  The "good" bad news is that in about 4 weeks I will have to undergo open heart bypass surgery to replace the other damaged and clogged arteries.  I imagine at that point I will be absent from here for a couple of weeks.  However, they tell me the recovery period is quick and I should feel like a "new" person afterwords.

While I am not looking forward to this event, I am looking forward to my renewed lease on life and my continued work here and our other blog sites.

It is ironic that our founder and previous publisher, Mike Morgan, had the same problem which caused his departure - per his doctor's orders.  Last I heard, he is doing well leading a less stressful life.  I wish him, as I am sure all of you do as well, continued good health.

Thanks to all of you as well for your continued following especially since I took the reins here at GS and all the other 666 sites.

It’s simply excellent how Goldman has managed to dress up xenophobia AND racism as “shareholder value maximization”. Amazing what you can get out of a Harvard MBA.
