"In Goldman Sachs We Trust," like Inside Job, explains the risks that Goldman Sachs, along with other companies, took in order to cheat people of their money.

This drastic changed turned her life around, and everything she knew was no longer a part of her life. Everything that had made her who she was changed. Ehrenerieich was forced to sacrifice her individuality to survive by entering a “parallel universe” and a worle of “poverty and turmoil” (Ehenreich 1). While Gatsby voluntarily changed to achieve his goal, Ehernreich had to change to barely get by.
