Dan Schwabel
Goldman Sachs just burns people out too much. So does Amazon, but it's a great brand, people touch it every day. And plus, it got too political in 2017. People are tired of politics.feedback

We are proud of our tradition of leadership and public service and believe it is a core part of our culture.

Everyone in Washington is struggling to make sense of Donald Trump’s reversals on multiple issues. The Post reports that “establishment” Republicans are relieved to see him governing more as one of them, as evidenced by his new support for NATO and the Export-Import Bank. Meanwhile, the rising influence of Goldman Sachs banker Gary Cohn inside the administration has some discerning a more “moderate” and “centrist” Trump on various issues, such as our posture on trade with China, and others seeing the emergence of a “pragmatic” Trump.feedback

Ned Ryun

It would be a terrible signal if Trump were to either force Bannon out or let him go because he is the face of the national populism that inspired a lot of voters to vote for Trump. And what makes it even worse right now, is that people have deep concerns about liberal New York Democrats associated with Goldman Sachs coming in and making strong moves at the White House. Kushner is family. He's not going anywhere. Bannon should not go anywhere either because of what he represents to the voter.feedback

Alec Baldwin

As president, I promise I'm going to do everything I can to make sure you people work in coal for the rest of your lives, and your kids will work in coal, and your grandkids. It's going to be incredible. In Trump's America, men work in two places – coal mines and Goldman Sachs.feedback

Dennis Kelleher

It is a brilliant strategy if what Gary Cohn wants is to kill Goldman Sachs' toughest competition.feedback

Barney Frank

It's one that says, Please don't lend money to poor people, you can't lend money to poor people who can't pay you back for their mortgages. Literally, that restriction on irresponsible subprime mortgages is the only lending restriction. Goldman Sachs, which is helping to populate this administration … because they are making less money from trading than they had been before … has created a whole new entity to lending.feedback

Lloyd Blankfein

Gary [Cohn] was not the first person from Goldman Sachs to join the government, and we hope and expect that he will not be the last. We are proud of our tradition of leadership and public service and believe it is a core part of our culture. That is why we will continue to encourage our people to contribute to government service if they are fortunate enough to be asked.feedback

Lloyd Blankfein

We have been criticized for the fact that some of our colleagues, after long careers at the firm, have moved to work in the public sector. The charge is that Goldman Sachs is able to extract certain advantages that others cannot. In fact, the opposite is true. Those in government bend over backward to avoid any perception of favoritism.feedback

Scott Redler

This is a tough spot. Last week was a great setup. Now it's harder to sink your teeth into longs. You have big names like Apple helping fuel breakouts. … You have stocks like Goldman Sachs going to all-time high and stocks like Bank of America at multiyear highs. But traders don't want to feel like they're chasing price up here. … Even if you think it's going to go higher, it's hard to think about initiating new longs. Individual names still have room to go. It's harder to be in the indices.feedback

Robert Menendez

From his days at Goldman Sachs on the front lines of developing the very products that brought our economy to its knees, to his reign as Chairman of OneWest Bank foreclosing on tens of thousands of homeowners throughout the country, Mr Mnuchin has exploited this nation's financial turmoil to pad his own bank account at the expense of hardworking American families.feedback

Lloyd Blankfein

It's an imprimatur on our firm that we have such good people that the administration wants to hire them. But the perception that they'll go to Washington and then favor us is false. The reverse is true. They'll bend over backwards to avoid that. They're not going to serve the interests of Goldman Sachs. They have their own careers and reputations to worry about.feedback

Renata Pumarol

Trump is making it easier for these bankers, for Goldman Sachs, for Chase, to keep robbing ... America. We think this is outrageous that he's ... giving (JPMorgan Chase CEO) Jamie Dimon the power to roll back Dodd-Frank, which was basically set in place to protect us.feedback

Harry Waisbren

Trump has just taken the [Goldman Sachs] executives, brought them into the White House, and it's absolutely disgusting, especially considering how he won the Republican primary as well as the general election chastising the other candidates for their fealty to Wall Street. The idea of Occupy Wall Street, that we need a government that works for all of us, not just the 1 percent, lives on. It was totally visible and strengthened throughout Bernie Sanders' candidacy.feedback

Barney Frank

It's one that says 'Please don't lend money to poor people, you can't lend money to poor people who can't pay you back for their mortgages'. Literally that restriction on irresponsible subprime mortgages is the only lending restriction. Goldman Sachs – which is helping to populate this administration – because they are making less money from trading than they had been before has created a whole new entity to lending.feedback

Elizabeth Warren

Donald Trump talked a big game about Wall Street during his campaign – but as president, we're finding out whose side he's really on. Today, after literally standing alongside big bank and hedge fund CEOs, he announced two orders – one that will make it easier for investment advisors to cheat you out of your retirement savings, and another that will put two former Goldman Sachs executives in charge of gutting the rules that protect you from financial fraud and another economic meltdown.feedback

Steve Sisolak

The Raiders are putting a lot of hopes in the Goldman Sachs commitments, but I don't know the extent of their commitments, and I certainly do not share that same level of hope.feedback

Maria Cantwell

As we saw during the financial crisis, when nonbanking affiliates of FDIC insured banks failed, they were rescued by their insured affiliates, which in turn were forced to be rescued by taxpayers. This was the case with State Street Bank, and your former employer, Goldman Sachs, which converted to a bank holding company in order to be eligible for federal bailout funds.feedback

Colin P. Clarke

If an executive from Goldman Sachs or JPMorgan or Exxon Mobil gets kidnapped, it's news, but it's not the president's company.feedback

Jim Cramer

Because interest rates are down big today. So, that's going to put pressure on the banks. If we're trying to get to Dow 20,000, you may see on the tape in the bottom a lot of good things, but you lose Procter, you close Coca-Cola and you lose Goldman Sachs and you lose JPMorgan, you're not going to get where you need to go.feedback

Lloyd Blankfein

These five leaders have distinguished themselves in their respective areas of expertise, and I look forward to working with them in formulating and executing our global strategy. They have consistently demonstrated their unwavering commitment to Goldman Sachs, our clients and our people.feedback

Donald J. Trump

I know the guys at Goldman Sachs – they have total, total control over him. Just like they have total control over Hillary Clinton.feedback

Matt O'Connor - Deutsche Bank

Goldman Sachs seems well positioned for a stronger macro environment given revenue upside, good cost control and a valuation below peers (despite similar/higher current and expected returns). A stronger economy should benefit many capital market businesses - including advisory, equity capital markets, and both fixed and equity trading (all areas of strength at GS).feedback

Maxine Waters

Donald Trump ran a campaign on anti-Wall Street rhetoric, but appointing a former hedge fund manager, Goldman Sachs executive, and bank CEO as Treasury Secretary shows his true colors. Mr. Mnuchin is a Wall Street insider with ties to big banks that have a troubling past of putting profits ahead of consumers and taxpayers.feedback

Michael Sherwood

I've been a Goldman Sachs addict and it's very hard to come off an addiction.feedback

Lloyd Blankfein

Over the course of his career, Michael has played a vital role in establishing and growing our franchise in Europe and around the world. His expertise and knowledge across a range of markets, as well as his passion and commitment to our culture, have influenced a generation of professionals at Goldman Sachs.feedback

Kellyanne Conway

It was a very small core senior team, probably less than ten people all told. I'm sure that everyone will be very important to the president moving forward. I will say this though. I think having worked with him and known him, Steve Bannon, in this particular campaign, was the general. And he is much more the Goldman Sachs managing partner and the naval officer than people realize.feedback

Steve Hussey - AllianceBernstein

I wouldn't exclude European banks trying to do this, given that the last year can be inefficient from a TLAC perspective, though it's still funding. However, they will only do it if it's not more expensive. I would argue Goldman Sachs has shown that there isn't much of a premium versus a bullet.feedback

Simon Taylor

The European banks are cost-focused, whereas U.S. banks like Goldman Sachs and JPMorgan are likely trying to generate revenue, because they're in different market conditions. Reading between the lines, that says: 'we want to profit from this, we want to build the thing,'.feedback

Charley Cooper

There are some banks – Goldman Sachs being the epitome of this – that ... recognize the future of banking as being more and more a question of technology.feedback

Chris Weston

U.S. markets have provided Asia with a healthy platform from which to progress. We've also seen a slew of earnings reports (including Goldman Sachs) and once again whether one is looking at the underlying earnings or the sales lines, companies are beating the analysts' estimates.feedback

Devin Ryan - JMP Securities

I think it was a good quarter for JPMorgan, Citigroup and Wells Fargo. But, if you really dig in, the real gains were in fixed income sales and trading. That tends to be a stronger percentage of gains for Goldman Sachs and Morgan Stanley than other banks. I think that's why you're seeing those two outperform.feedback

Vivien Rose

I find that the LIA has greatly exaggerated the extent to which senior and junior personnel were naïve and unworldly about the nature of the dynamics of their relationship with Goldman Sachs.feedback

Gianni Pittella

Barroso has already undermined the image and the credibility of the commission by announcing that he will work for Goldman Sachs, the bank which helped Greece to conceal its public accounts.feedback

Jacob Weinig

I don't think that the Occupy movement itself, people sitting in the streets and parks downtown or outside of [Goldman Sachs CEO] Lloyd Blankfein's apartment is the reason we've rallied 75 percent in the last five years. What it did highlight was the difference between Wall Street and Main Street, and you can correlate that a little bit to the performance of the U.S. economy versus the performance of U.S. stocks.feedback

Jean-Claude Juncker - European Commission

Personally I do not have a problem with him working for a private bank – but maybe not this bank. Goldman Sachs was one of the organizations that knowingly or unknowingly contributed to the enormous financial crisis between 2007 and 2009.feedback

Bernie Sanders

Now, she's a very good speaker, I admit that. But to to get 225,000 dollars for a speech to Goldman Sachs, you've got to be really good. I don't know that she's that good.feedback

Jim Cramer

Right now I think that Citigroup is the buy given how far it has come out, but I simply don't believe that Goldman Sachs is bad, either. It's just that it's not quite good enough.feedback

Michael Sherwood

Jose Manuel brings immense insights and experience to Goldman Sachs, including a deep understanding of Europe.feedback

Lloyd Blankfein

We respect the decision of the British electorate and have been focused on planning for either referendum outcome for many months. Goldman Sachs has a long history of adapting to change, and we will work with relevant authorities as the terms of the exit become clear. Our primary focus, as always, remains serving our clients' needs.feedback

Edith Cooper

We want to hire not just the economics or business undergraduate but there is that pure liberal arts or history major that could be the next Lloyd Blankfein.feedback

Todd Boehly

Recently, Eldridge received unsolicited interest in one of its media assets. This led us to hire Moelis & Co (MC.N) and Goldman Sachs Group Inc (GS.N) to conduct a strategic review of Eldridge's media holdings.feedback

Justin Fuller - Fitch Ratings

I don't think you're going to see Goldman Sachs buying branches all over the country. I'm fairly certain you won't.feedback

Daniel Nadler

Anyone whose job is moving data from one spreadsheet to another ..., that's what is going to get automated. Goldman Sachs will be in here in 10 years, JPMorgan will be here. They're just going to be much more efficient in terms of operating leverage and headcount.feedback

Barack Obama

It's an honor to be at my last, and perhaps the last correspondents' dinner. You all look great; the end of the Republic has never looked better. It's my eighth and final appearance at this unique event. I am excited. If this material works well, I'm going to use it at Goldman Sachs next year. Earn me some serious Tubmans.feedback

Bernie Sanders

Let me give you an idea of how corrupt this system is. The leader of Goldman Sachs is a billionaire who comes to Congress and tells us we should cut Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid. Secretary Clinton, and you're not the only one, I don't mean to just point the finger at you, you've received over $600, 000 in speaking fees from Goldman Sachs in one year.feedback
