Two Goldman Sachs “clients” take a look at themselves after Greg Smith’s New York Times op-ed in this musical puppet number. A parody of the Oscar-winning song “Man or Muppet” rewritten by author and law professor Frank Partnoy. (March 26, 2012)
That Frank Partnoy is one creative guy. Check out his latest book, Wait: The Art and Science of Delay. Taking control of time and slowing down our responses yields better results in almost every arena of life … even when time seems to be of the essence. Inspirational for procrastinators.
Perhaps what we need are a few more parodies. How about Muppet or ShareOwner? Too many shareowners seem satisfied to be muppets, failing to stand up to corporate managers who take a higher and higher proportion of corporate profits.
And there’s also this: Kermit the Frog sets the record straight. Muppetgate at Goldman Sachs prompts a written response from the host of The Muppet Show to Lloyd Blankfein, chief executive of Goldman Sachs.
