I hope this doesn't offend. I find this very funny in light of the recent presumption of religious purpose by Goldman Sachs, Lazard International and Barclays executives (here and here). Anyway, here is the latest intersection of religion and Wall Street, courtesy of Barry Ritholtz at The Big Picture (here):
THE LLOYD’s Prayer
Who Art At Goldman,
Blankfein Be Thy Name.
The Rally’s Come. God’s Work Be Done
On Earth As There’s No Fear Of Correction.
Give Us This Day Our Daily Gains,
And Bankrupt Our Competitors
As You Taught Lehman and Bear Their Lessons.
And Bring Us Not Under Indictment.
For Thine Is The Treasury,
The House And The Senate
Forever and Ever.
