This is my take on the Wall Street/Goldman Sachs debacle. It’s a painting made by the great Caravaggio but I think it sums up the modern relationship between Wall Street, Congress, and the American people better than any modern political cartoon. It’s called “The Card Sharps” and was painted in 1592 but it’s very apt today. By the way, the guy on the right who’s pulling the cards out from behind his back is Goldman Sachs, the guy in the middle is Congress telling the American people on the left what to do and that everything will be ok. I think it’s hilarious. Like the old saying goes, “The more things change, the more they stay the same.” I never really understood that wisdom when I was younger but I do now.
