Stein: Goldman Sachs' power 'phenomenal'
'Parker Spitzer' staff - CNN
Actor, economist and conservative commentator Ben Stein describes Goldman Sachs' "phenomenal" power to discourage scrutiny of the Wall Street banking titan's role in the Federal Reserve's quantitative easing (QE2) plan to print money and buy $600 billion in Treasury bonds.
"When I used to write about them (Golden Sachs) negatively in The New York Times," Stein said, "I would get barraged – just bombarded – by their very, very skillful publicity arm who would talk to me, talk to my superiors; just generally make my life miserable."
