Would you like to read something weird? Here is a Goldman Sachs press release headlined “OP-ED, THE HUFFINGTON POST – ARIANNA HUFFINGTON AND LLOYD C. BLANKFEIN DISCUSS OUR COMMON GOAL: EMPOWERING ENTREPRENEURS AND CREATING JOBS.”
I mean, some of it is true! Goldman Sachs does indeed mentor
women all over the world in creating small businesses, and their
10,000 Women project is actually one of the most interesting
programs in the world. And then there’s this:
This past summer, The Huffington Post broke new ground in the way the media commonly report economic news. Frustrated by the relentless coverage of disaster, tragedy and scandal in traditional media sources, The Huffington Post launched “What is Working,” dedicated to covering stories of progress and success, particularly when it comes to creating jobs in the United States, and brought 100 startup entrepreneurs together at both political conventions to showcase all the different ways they’re creating jobs.
That’s great and all. But haha, yes, the Huffington Post just must be so frustrated by the “relentless coverage of disaster, tragedy and scandal in traditional media sources,” I can hardly imagine their feelings of helplessness before it.
#Davos in a nutshell: Tonight’s Sean Parker party, featuring John Legend, is calling itself a “future of philanthropy nightcap”.
