Books we want to read but haven’t yet: “Bismarck: A Life”, by Jonathan Steinberg, reviewed by Henry Kissinger in the New York Times. “The Origins of Political Order: From Prehuman Times to the French Revolution”, by Francis Fukuyama, reviewed in The Economist. Finally, this review about “Money and Power: How Goldman Sachs Came to Rule The World” by Willian Cohan actually made us want to revisit “The Partnership: The Making of Goldman Sachs” by Charles Ellis.

For historical purposes, here’s a link to the now-classic April 2010 Rolling Stone article on Goldman Sachs, calling it “a great vampire squid wrapped around the face of humanity, relentlessly jamming its blood funnel into anything that smells like money.”
