Stand And Die
The title is a gaming phrase, popular in the MMORPG realm. (Massively Multiplayer Online Role Playing Game)
It comes from a combat tactic used when a battle has gone horribly wrong. Rather than running around and making the battle more dangerous for players that are recovering, or providing support roles, a player that is 'checking out', is expected to just stand still and take the death.
It seems that Goldman Sachs executives are familiar with the strategy. They are ordering their employees in Tokyo to stay there. If they get scared and want to take their families away from the danger, then they are out of GS and will never work for GS again.
Clearly it's Goldman Sachs intention to make money off of their employees all the way to the bitter end. If their employees and their families end up dying in Tokyo, well, that's just a cost of doing business I suppose.
We already knew that Goldman Sachs pretty much considers human life to be expendable. Now it's clear that the Vampire Squid sees it's own employees as being essentially valueless and expendable too.
Goldman Sachs Employees Told Not to Leave Japan
At least four Goldman Sachs executives flew into Japan last week to speak with nervous ex-pat employees about radiation fears, according to a person familiar with the situation. They also conveyed another message: don't leave Japan and don't leave Tokyo.
Employees at the investment bank's Japan offices are worried about radiation levels affecting their families, the person said. Many were asking if they could temporarily relocate out of the country or perhaps move to a location in southern Japan, farther away from troubled nuclear power plants. The were told that they should not leave Tokyo, according to the person.
