Goldman Sachs, the financial behemoth, strives to give clients efficient market advice and service.

And they take the same approach to lunch.

CNBC's John Carney has a funny story at his blog. Goldman Sachs uses a discount window to discourage employees from taking lunch between 11:30 a.m. and 1:30 p.m.

This maneuver prevents a lunch rush and also causes a wider variety of specific lunch times among employees.

One savvy commenter, however, pointed out that employees at Goldman, who are daily tasked with finding efficiency and gains for clients, would save the most money by simply bringing their own lunch.

But where's the market dynamics in that?
