After Headhunting Steve Mnuchin for Secretary of Treasury, Trump might have his eyes on no other than the COO and 2nd man of Goldman, Gary Cohn for Head of National Economic Council.
Cohn has been long rumored to lead Goldman after the departure of its current CEO, Lloyd Blankfein, which has given no hint so far of any plans to depart anytime soon. Cohn was also rumored to have grown impatient waiting for any evolution and this move might sound reasonable to him, as any move to government posts has its special financial incentives as well.
Goldman is starting to have a very strong record for placing its executives in top government posts, let's take Henry Paulson or Mario Draghi, the Head of ECB for example.
Im guessing that soon, we would see monkeys posting things like:
AMA: Target School -> IB Analyst -> Top 15 MBA -> MD BB -> Secretary of Treasury' hahaha
jokes aside, thoughts on these placements?
