Goldman Sachs has caught the public's eye in recent weeks thanks to record profits and damning exposes about the bank's historic role in the economy's boom and bust cycle. Oh, and the pedophilia. Like many rich and powerful institutions, Goldman doesn't appreciate the attention, coming as it does as tent cities and soaring unemployment are turning the nation into a Dickens novel by way of Mad Max. An employee tells the Post that CEO Lloyd Blankfein has been urging his employees to avoid any high-profile purchases: "This is a sensitive time for us, and [Blankfein] wants to make sure that we're not being seen living high on the hog." While it's probably wise to postpone buying that diamond-encrusted office bidet for now, isn't this kind of bad news for the city economy? What happened to trickle-down economics? How much longer does the service industry—the chauffeurs, the naked sushi models, the bidet installers—have to wait for conspicuous consumption to come back in style?
