Friends: Here's a profile I wrote of the Texan oil banker and senior Lehman Brothers executive, Mr. Hugh E. "Skip" McGee III, who just became US CEO for Barclays as the firm pledges to become a cleaner, safer firm. Mr. McGee, famous for his embrace of risk and pay (and his "Kinkaid Letter") is an interesting and complicated choice...
Hugh E. McGee III, a former Lehman Brothers Holdings Inc. oil banker, fired his gun into upstate New York’s sky last year. Clients and colleagues, who know him as Skip, watched the one duck tagged with a ribbon fall.

Here's my story on spending election night with Wall Street's young Romney supporters (http://bloom.bg/RZS23e), plus the semantically unjust White People Mourning Romney appearance it brought me (http://bit.ly/Q0ywsC)!

Googlers -- Before you settle into the Reuters' world panel or watch the Avengers trailer, please check out my Bloomberg news story below: I spent the last month interviewing Wall Street lords (like the billionaire Wilbur Ross, the ex-Goldman asset management head Leon Cooperman, 740 Park head Charles Stevenson, Michael Dell's hedge fund manager John Phelan, non-Mets owner David Eisman) about their hopes and dreams and fears and furies. They say they are upset and anxious, but not about Occupy Wall Street.
Wall Street executives, facing demonstrators camped for a fourth week in New York’s financial district, say they’re anxious and angry for other reasons.

Time for "Occupy" to kick rich butt...   Thanks Max.  Keep up the good reporting.  Be the voice man. You're good at it.

Here's my new story! A man called The Don (or, The Weasel) leads a secretive team at Goldman Sachs that uses the firm's own money to make bets on the market: http://www.bloomberg.com/news/2013-01-08/secret-goldman-team-sidesteps-volcker-after-blankfein-vow.html

Here're some stories! First, the banks are making $63 billion this year, and they are disappointed: http://bloom.bg/Q8YlTE

Plus, from the summertime, here's one (http://bloom.bg/SZMUCf) about bankers and traders pining for risk and sexiness on Wall Street, and another about all the sundry honors bestowed on them: http://bloom.bg/NCokCv.

And this was from BloombergTV about Occupy Wall Street's anniversary: http://bloom.bg/Q7cOC6.

Hope you like them.

Hi everyone -- I interviewed bankers (and their accountants and therapists and advisers and headhunters) about what it's like for them in a world with smaller bonuses. “People who don’t have money don’t understand the stress,” Alan Dlugash said." Hope you enjoy: http://www.bloomberg.com/news/2012-02-29/wall-street-bonus-withdrawal-means-trading-aspen-for-cheap-chex.html

Hello Google Plusers! (Is that a phrase? Sure hope so). This is my first ever post, and for my debut I'd like to share a story I've worked on for quite a while, and am really excited about. It's my new profile of Goldman Sachs president Gary Cohn, who's quite the guy. Please enjoy: http://bloom.bg/rjhPoH
Michael Ovitz, the former Hollywood agent whose company was said to have created enemies “the way a hurricane produces raindrops,” first met Gary Cohn over lunch at Goldman Sachs Group Inc.’s headquar...
