    Even Goldman Sachs’ investors think they have a hand in the White House. Lloyd Blankfein, the bank’s CEO, was needled by investor Mindy Wasserman over the “Goldman Sachs tax plan” during the company’s annual shareholder meeting in Jersey City on Friday. “I heard about this tax plan when you did,” Blankfein said. On Wednesday, the…

    Time to fire up the private jet: The Milken Global Conference kicks off Sunday and if you’re looking for someone from the administration this week, try the Beverly Wilshire Hotel, not Washington, DC. Speaking at the West Coast event — aimed at sharpening investment theses — are Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin and Chris Liddell, the…

    If you’re just about to start on your working life, you might be advised to stay away from such hands-on occupations as welder, floor assembler or boilermaker.

    The US health care sector may be incubating the next big Lehman-style disaster that could tip the economy into a full-blown recession, according to industry analysts. Forget about the subprime mortgage collapse. The health care sector is nursing its own toxic mess, with soaring debt, the analysts say. “As a nation, we have to s…
  6. Don’t be a jerk — give your waiter a good tip

    Dear John: Now that wait staff at restaurants have received a pay increase, should we now tip at a lower percentage? At Olive Garden, for example, they are now automatically adding 18 percent to bills. In London recently I found most restaurants added 12.5 percent. I apologize for not identifying myself, but the waiter…
  7. Pedophiles have no place on social media

    Dear John: I must say, I was saddened by the person complaining about child sexual abuse material on Facebook, and your flippant response to it. “Child pornography” is atrociously named because children cannot consent, are not paid and are not acting. Images that portray real children in sexual situations are images that film their abu…

    Talk about bending over backward to lure shoppers. The Bloomingdale’s store at East 59th Street will stage a massive, free yoga class on its third floor Saturday afternoon — with customers invited to practice the child’s pose and downward dog where they usually browse contemporary women’s clothing.
