Apart from BP. the Oil giant facing flack for it’s role in the Gulf of Mexico Oil Spill Disaster, another company remains the target of ire of the american public. That company is Goldman Sachs, a 140 year old investment banking and securities firm, which has recently been the target of a civil lawsuit by the SEC.

Goldman was not the only company responsible for the catastrophic financial crisis that has and continue to plague America since 2008, why is it the prime target for the public’s anger?

The reasons are not difficult to figure out. Inspite of a bleeding economy, they have continued to thrive and changed the laws with the help of their close connections with the Government (Then Treasury Secretary, Hank Paulson who gave away 700 Billion dollars of taxpayer money to bail out wall street for their gambling mistakes, is an ex-ceo of Goldman, and so was Robert Rubin, who was treasure sec. during Clinton’s regime and the guy who deregulated the financial markets so that banks could take those risks in the first place).
