Wait, Do You Mean to Tell Me That Fed Presidents Are In Bed with the Bankers?
Shhh, it's a secret meeting
God bless you, Bloomberg, for your Don Quixote FOIAing.
A little digging on their part has revealed that NY Fed President William Dudley (who took over for Tim Geither, another known conspirator who has the audacity to meet with those in the finance and banking sector on a regular basis) used his first few days in the office to meet with GS rats and Citi operatives. Somehow this is shocking to someone if it warranted an entire article.
Federal Reserve Bank of New York President William Dudley scheduled meetings with top Goldman Sachs Group Inc. and Citigroup Inc. officials in his first days on the job, his daybook showed today.Who wants to bet they talked about how Master Blankfein likes to get his balls stroked and the best way Dudley could do that in absence of that good little bitch Timmy?
Dudley, a former partner and chief U.S. economist at Goldman, had an appointment to meet that bank’s chairman, Lloyd Blankfein, on Feb. 6, 2009, according to his schedule for 2009 and the first nine months of 2010. Four days earlier, Goldman was the topic of a planned meeting between Dudley and his staff.
Getting worked up over this is like getting worked up over hearing Richmond Fed's Jeffrey Lacker had a date with BB&T's Kelly King or that Dallas Fed's Richard Fisher went ATVing with Town North Bank CEO (and Big 4 alum) Steven McDonald. Who cares?
Show me a Jamie Dimon/Bill Dudley sex tape and we might have something otherwise please don't bother me with this nonsense until you have something useful to tell me that isn't a given.
