How The Big Boys Screwed Us All

I love this commentary by Lorrie Goldstein of the Toronto Sun.

Especially the last couple of lines.

Indeed, when the s— hit the fan, these guys acted like Soviet apparatchiks, screwing the public for their blunders.

Worse, they got away with it.

or, how about this one?

Wall Street traders … success was individual achievement, failure was a social problem.

This last quote is similar to one of my pet peeves. It seems that CEOs get lots of bonus money no matter what. If the company does well, it is because of the CEO and they get big bonuses. If the company does poorly, it is due to the economy,etc, and the CEO gets a big bonus because they helped hold everything together under bad circumstances. Why can’t we just get a proper salary, and if you do well you get to keep the job. If you do poorly, you get turfed.

Comments?

(obviously, the article in the Sun contains some strong language. Be forewarned.)
