Geez, what the hell is going on here. If I were the CEO of GS and I got a call from Bernanke asking me to loan money to AIG, I'd tell them to fuck off as there is no point in lending money to insolvent institutions. Not even an Investment Bank such as Goldman could waste their clients funds in that way. Right after the phone call, I'd instruct my trading staff to naked short the shit out of AIG and anyone else who is willing to help them. This circle jerk has to stop. Bring back free market capitalism and let the successful institutions mop their floors with the blood of their failed competitors. Dick Fuld's head should be on a mantle in Goldman's lobby.
