Jerome a Paris:
and that Goldmans is generally seen with suspicion as one of those speculators pushing oil prices up

Not Goldman, I think, but the captive funds they operate and which their traders have as a backstop eg "Date Rape" and all that.

But their fighting talk re oil prices, and the current bubble/ spike, keeps the money flowing in to the funds all right.

As for O'Neill, he seems incapable of writing anything without dropping a "BRIC" reference, because of course, who was it who invented the acronym....
