ZH: "The People Vs Goldman Sachs" - Matt Taibbi's Magnum Opus

Hat-tip to ZH, for the tip that Matt Taibbi has a new article out in Rolling Stone.  Per ZH: (bold mine):

Matt Taibbi does the seemingly impossible: translates the 650-page Levin report "Wall Street and the Financial Crisis: Anatomy of a Financial Collapse" in simple English, and lays out the criminal case against one Goldman Sachs for everyone to read, comprehend, and scratch their heads how nobody has gone to jail yet:

Blogger Poetry from ZH

I just loved reading this poetic post on ZH from "AnonymousMonetarist", so thought I would share it here for anyone who didn't see it. Fair warning - it's pretty long - but filled with great information and humor:

"A google news search of 'GDP Commerce Department' yields 26,600 hits. A google news search of 'GDI Commerce Department' yields 19 unique hits ?!?!

And to the best of my ability, it appears that none of the 19 'hits' even discusses GDI?

How about the blogosphere? 1460 hits for the former selection this last week and ZERO hits for the latter?

Goldman Sachs, Chess, and the Godfather
