Today, Tomorrow and the Day After

March 19, 2012 § Leave a comment

Panic. Fear. Insanity. Three things that no man can interrupt. Life today seems wearisome and dull. Money is tighter than ever. Innovation halted.

The desk is struggling to adapt to the new world order. A shadow banking world where spectres move in the dark. The ghosts of great bankers crushed by the crisis. As Josh Birnbaum the once great Goldman trader said: 10m may be a lot to a steelworker but it’s nothing to a hedge fund manager.

Meanwhile, we have been told to expect a visit from some journalists tomorrow. They want to hear where we stand on the Goldman affair. To a man we are ecstatic. I hear knives being sharpened.
