Matt Taibbi's feature on Goldman Sachs - The Great American Bubble Machine - in the current issue of Rolling Stone is now available online and, in conjunction with its release, a series of interviews are now available on the conspiracy-minded Alex Jones YouTube Channel.

I had some serious reservations about the treatment of the "2008 oil bubble" portion of this article, the reliance on the largely discredited Michael Masters being just one of several shortcomings in this section.
But, that doesn't really detract from what is otherwise a fine piece of writing that is immensely entertaining though just a little bit over-the-top.
More importantly, it is told in a way that may help to turn the tide a bit more against the big American banks that seem to run both Wall Street and Washington these days.
Don't know why they couldn't have just made this into one ten-minute video...
