“Why does Goldman Sachs run your government? What’s wrong with America is that it’s run by investment bankers, mostly from the same bank. How can Americans stand for it?” ~ Taxi Cab Driver in Kuala Lumpur
By Catherine Austin Fitts
President-elect Trump has now recruited two Goldman Sachs partners and three Goldman Sachs alums as well as an attorney from Goldman’s lead law firm to work in his administration.
Goldman Sachs Alums:
- Steven Mnuchin, to serve as Secretary of the Treasury
- Stephen Bannon, to serve as chief strategist to the President
- Anthony Scaramucci, likely to serve as senior advisor to the President
Goldman Sachs Employees:
- Goldman Sachs President Gary Cohn to serve as director of the National Economic Council
- Goldman partner Dina Powell has been selected to become a White House economic adviser.
Sullivan & Cromwell (Goldman’s lead law firm)
- Jay Clayton, to chair the US Securities and Exchange Commission
Goldman’s stock has risen 72% since last summer. A large portion of that rise has been since the election, with Goldman being the leader pulling the Dow up in the “Trump Surge.” (See “Follow the Money: Booze Allen Hamilton vs. Goldman Sachs vs. Treasury Bonds vs. S&P 500″). Now with Goldman’s president joining the administration with a Goldman alum at Treasury and a Goldman attorney running the SEC, observers are asking an increasing number of questions regarding “how the money” will work on a Trump presidency. Cui bono?
In response to numerous questions from our subscribers and members, I asked Joseph Farrell to join me for a Special Solari Report to discuss Goldman Sachs. We cover Goldman’s historical relationships with the US government, including the black budget and covert financial system, and explore how the nature of Goldman’s ties with the new administration may relate to the policy wars raging in Washington.
Throughout the discussion, Joseph and I reference numerous speeches, books and other Solari Reports. For those interested, these are linked below.
