2:40 Matt Taibbi on Goldman exec’s NYT oped (see below). "The resignation will have an effect on Goldman’s business. The firm’s share price opened this morning at 124.52; it’s down to 120.72 as of this writing (it dropped two percent while I was writing this blog), and it will probably dive further. Why? Because you can stack all the exposés on Goldman you want by degenerates like me and the McClatchy group, and you can even have a Senate subcommittee call for your executives to be tried for perjury, but that doesn’t necessarily move the Street." See update at bottom of Taibbi’s piece for Goldman’s blowback.

9:50 Email to me from OccupyHomes Minnesota: "On Wednesday, March 14, at 5:00pm Occupy Homes MN will hold a march to US Bank CEO Richard Davis’ Minneapolis home as part of the Occupy Homes national week of action on the banks. The march will be led by the family of homeowner Monique White, Vietnam Veteran John Vinje and others facing foreclosure and eviction at the hands of US Bank, demanding that US bank negotiate with them rather than throw them out of their homes. ‘We want to respectfully ask Mr. Davis and US Bank to work with customers like me to keep us in our homes. We bailed them out with our tax dollars when they were in trouble at the start of the housing crisis they created, now we need them to work with us to help stabilize our communities, instead of tearing them apart,’ said Monique White.
