This Is How Goldman Sachs CEO Lloyd Blankfein Feels Today
No, really, he said that.
Like you need any context.
The CEO of Goldman Sachs, when asked what one word he would use to describe his experience in the SEC hearings regarding the massive, rich, powerful investment bank, answered as such to NPR:
"Humbled. It was quite a humbling experience to be in a position where Goldman Sachs, which prides itself on the role it performs in the U.S. economy... [had] to defend itself against some of the charges that were made."
And then, this:
"We are the market maker, helping people to acquire the kinds of risks they want to have," he said. "The clients we have are not deciding to buy or sell something because of what our position is."
