It appears Goldman Sachs’ chief executive Lloyd Blankfein is still doing “God’s work.” This is an exchange between Blankfein and New York nun that happened yesterday at the bank’s annual shareholders meeting.
Shareholder nun, Sister Barbara Aires of the Sisters of Charity of St. Elizabeth, focused on whether Goldman was doing enough to implement recommendations from an internal review after the financial crisis
Blankfein said 31 of the committee’s 39 recommendations had been implemented, but the nun wanted to know why it wasn’t finished yet.
“Well Sister Aires, you sound a lot like Goldman management,” Blankfein joked.
“Want to hire me?” the nun quickly shot back.
“I don’t think we could outbid your current boss,” Blankfein deadpanned.
