Goldman had already paid massive fines for causing the mortgage crisis by selling its own clients toxic assets.

Just to be clear, what the resigning midlevel exec in the GS London office said in his New York Times op-ed was that the culture at Goldman Sachs was such that its clients were being bilked by trading schemes knowingly designed to rip them off, while the GS execs laughed about how gullible their “muppet” clients were for trusting them. That was shocking, but it wasn’t unfair or news.
