Professor Roy Smith is interviewed about Goldman Sachs alumni serving on President Trump's administration
— January 18, 2018
Excerpt from The New York Times -- "[Gary Cohn] delivered the tax legislation,' [Smith] said. 'Whether you agree with it or not, he executed. That’s his skill. And he stood up to the president after Charlottesville. People respect that. I think he could leave now with his reputation intact.' Alone among the prominent Goldman alumni in the administration, Mr. Mnuchin seems likely to stay. 'He’s been a good and loyal employee,' Professor Smith said. 'But he’s more of a Hollywood person now. His reputation in the professional financial sector may not matter that much to him.'"
