The financial firm of Goldman Sachs is so influential over world governments that the nickname “Goldman Sachsony” (Goldman Sachs + Saxony) has been used to describe any country where Goldman Sachs exerts influence. The “Goldman Sachsony” nickname has been infrequently cited in print since at least 2010.
A similar term is “The United States of Goldman Sachs.”
