Here is Goldman exec resigning via the NYT. That’s burning bridges with napalm.
The article is pure theater, of course. He is pandering to a Goldman bashing audience in exchange for 15 minutes of notoriety. Only fools double-cross on idealistic grouds alone, so what does he gain from this?
1. The infamous Goldman Alumni network is closed, which shuts down quite a lot of post-bank opportunity.
2. He has gained 15 minutes of fame and will bear the standard of anti-Goldman sentiment for a while.
I bet he drives something nice and hasn’t saved enough, so the question is how might one act on #2 for a new job?
It’s either a book, a political appointment or his own hedge fund. Any other business and I’d say reality TV show.
