Those poor Goldman Sachs employees had to get by last year on just a $343,000 bonus. How exactly does Goldman Sachs benefit the world economy in any way whatsoever? They use their connections with the Federal government to bilk the American taxpayer out of billions. They cheat their clients out of billions. They commit financial fraud on a grand scale (Greece). They control the Federal Reserve and the Treasury Dept. Then they reward themselves with billions in bonuses for a job well done. So it goes.
