Make sure you rank us!!
Thanks Josh Brown @reformedbroker for creating this list and for putting us at the top. If you were to ask me who’d I put on this list, I’d go with Matt Taibbi. We’ve been ‘banker bashing’ for close to 10 years now but it was Taibbi’s “Goldman as vampire squid’ that smashed open this genre like a jackhammer to a pinata. I also like Taibbi’s prose. Aside from being an excellent investigative journalist, he’s a damn good writer. The problem we all have in writing and doing media about this stuff is that the modern language of finance is designed to be as obfuscating as possible to ward off scrutiny and accountability. Taibbi’s writing cuts through it. Even a general pop culture reader at Rolling Stone ‘gets it.’
