Crashing a Wall Street party

February 19, 2014

I’m just recovering from a killer flu that had me wheezing and miserable for 5 days. I have a whole backlog of rants and vents but no time this morning to even start, so instead let me suggest you read this article (hat tip Chris Wiggins) about a New York Times reporter who crashed the yearly party of Kappa Beta Phi, a Wall Street secret society. Pretty amazing, if true.

    Many of those people are nobodies. One of them is Dexter Earle, my ex boss for a while at GS in 1990, who became a partner in 88, nice guy, not very knowledgeable. But he became a member, according to that article, in 1976, when he certainly wasn’t a master of the universe at Bankers Trust or somewhere like that. Even if it’s a true article, it’s kind of inconsequential.

    Just for the record: NY Magazine, not NY Times reporter.

    He was a NY Times reporter when it happened. This article was in the Magazine though.
