The Goldman Sachs Influence Over Monetary Policy In the U.S., England and the EU

It just doesn't stop with these guys.

Goldman Sachs' senior European economist Ben Broadbent is leaving the firm to become a member of the Bank of England's nine-member Monetary Policy Committee.

Broadbent has been a senior European economist at Goldman Sachs since 2000.

If Mario Draghi becomes head of the European Central Bank (He's the favorite to replace Jean-Claude Trichet after Trichet completes his term), Goldman Sachs will have former employees at the New York Fed (William Dudley), the Bank of England and the ECB.

    As you pointed out, the only thing that stopped Goldman in the UK before was flesh eating bacteria (David Walton).
