<America. Now they apply for visas to come to Goldman, Sachs. And passports of American citizens now say, in large gold letters on the front, "The United States of Goldman, Sachs."

Still under consideration is the question of whether the motto on our coins should be changed to "In Goldman, Sachs We Trust." Some people think that would be going too far. They say that it is one thing to change the name of the country, but quite another to equate the country with God. Their position is undercut, however, by the fact that they are religious fundamentalists. Secularists find nothing wrong with changing the motto on our coins. And economists who are monetarists, or who think well of what the Federal Reserve has done, are vociferously in favor of the change. They also want the head of the Federal Reserve to change his name to Ben Bankee. This would make him Ben Bankee, Chairman of the Federal Reserve Board of the United States of Goldman, Sachs.*
