Big story of the day (aside from devastation in Tokyo) is that a 12-year veteran of Goldman Sachs quit his job by publishing this absolutely scathing piece in the New York Times: http://www.nytimes.com/2012/03/14/opinion/why-i-am-leaving-goldman-sachs.html?_r=2&pagewanted=all?src=tp
To make a long story short, he calls the GS culture "Toxic and destructive," and essentially says that the firm is so short-sighted in trying to make money off clients that its clients are going to go elsewhere.
I think that by writing this editorial ("Goldman Sachs" is trending in Twitter for the first time ever), he's just made his prophecy a self-fulfilling one!
In other news, APMEX is running a flash sale on silver rounds, .99 over spot. With silver dipping below $33 right now, it might be a good time to stack some phyz.
