Goldman Sachs entangled in global 1MDB scandal (video)

With the indictment of two former senior Goldman Sachs bankers, accused by US prosecutors of paying bribes, stealing and laundering money from a Malaysian sovereign-wealth fund, the Wall Street giant finds itself at the center of one of the world’s largest-ever financial scandals. The Wall Street Journal reports.

Back in 2012, a Goldman Sachs vice-president who quit explained to CBS News the toxic culture within the firm:

Thanks for dropping by! The views expressed in Aliran's media statements and the NGO statements we have endorsed reflect Aliran's official stand. Views and opinions expressed in other pieces published here do not necessarily reflect Aliran's official position.

Our voluntary writers work hard to keep these articles free for all to read. But we do need funds to support our struggle for Justice, Freedom and Solidarity.

Somebody’s gotta call a spade a spade. Wall Street shouldn’t be like the abode of gods whom no one can touch.. yikes!!!! The Prof interviewed said that “Wall Street ethics ” is an oxymoron, so are we to accept that ethics is a no no. So all those adverts about the most honest, most intelligent banks are pure bunkum? Yikes!!!!
