This one is clearly inspired by the recent Why I Am Leaving Goldman Sachs op-ed in the New York Times by Greg Smith.

But this parody is clearly much funnier.

Although, maybe not?

From the Smith article:

I hope this can be a wake-up call to the board of directors. Make the client the focal point of your business again. Without clients you will not make money. In fact, you will not exist. Weed out the morally bankrupt people, no matter how much money they make for the firm. And get the culture right again, so people want to work here for the right reasons. People who care only about making money will not sustain this firm — or the trust of its clients — for very much longer.

And the parody: Why I am leaving the Empire, by Darth Vader

I hope this can be a wake-up call. Make killing people in terrifying and unstoppable ways the focal point of your business again. Without it you will not exist. Weed out the morally bankrupt people, no matter how much non-existent Alderaan real estate they sell. And get the culture right again, so people want to make millions of voices cry out in terror before being suddenly silenced.

Yep, Goldman Sachs really is the Empire.

Anyways the parody in The Daily Mash is brilliant. Read the whole thing. And check out some of the others that are sprouting up like stormtroopers with poor marksmanship skills.

And of course, it looks like Goldman Sachs is definitely taking to heart the Five Leadership Mistakes Of The Galactic Empire.
