Shareholders of Goldman Sachs needn’t worry that Chairman and CEO Lloyd C. Blankfein barely showed up at the office this week. He wasn’t far away and he’s finally back.
Blankfein spent more than 10 hours this week under oath in New York Federal court where at least the views were comparable in panoramic grandeur to the ones he has grown accustomed to at Goldman’s headquarters a few blocks away.
Blankfein took the stand Monday afternoon as a witness for the prosecution in the U.S. Justice Department’s case against Rajat Gupta, the ex-Goldman Sachs director accused of passing along corporate secrets to convicted insider-trader and hedge fund manager Raj Rajaratnam.
