The head of the Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas (Robert S. Kaplan), the head of the Federal Reserve Bank of Minneapolis (Neel Kashkari), the secretary of the U.S. Treasury (Steve Mnuchin), the president of the European Central Bank (Mario Draghi), and the head of the Bank of England (Mark Carney) all have two things in common: They sit atop vast amounts of money and they are all alums of Goldman Sachs.

In addition, the immediate past president of the Federal Reserve Bank of New York, William Dudley, which secretly sluiced over $29 trillion to bail out Wall Street banks during the financial crisis and has now opened its money spigot for trillions of dollars more, worked at Goldman Sachs for more than two decades, rising to the rank of partner and U.S. Chief Economist.

Smith's bosses were implicated as well: "Over the last 12 months I have seen five different managing directors refer to their own clients as 'muppets,'" Smith wrote.

Today Goldman Sachs is under a criminal investigation by the U.S. Department of Justice and under a criminal indictment by Malaysia for its role in bribery and embezzlement of its sovereign wealth fund known as 1MDB.

Goldman Sachs' notorious history has not stopped its alum from magically landing in government positions that control, create or funnel giant piles of money. ...
