BofA is putting together multiple billions in bonus money this year and Ken Feinberg ought to be taking care of that right along with 2 other toppers that combined with BofA equal 75Bn in bonus money to be paid out to pickpockets and theives that could care less if the GDP goes to hell west or sideways. Easier picking carcasses than earning it. None has shown the slightes embarrassment over TARP propping up their tents. They ought yo be taxed at 111%.

So you have any idea how many jobs have been lost in NYC as a result of this debacle, the fall of Lehman and so on?

Not to mention the hatchet job John Thain did on NYSE during his tenure there, before it got taken over by Euronext. One thing is for sure, its European owners are NOT going to fire their own staff.

So there is going to be a lot more pain on the Street before it ever starts its upturn for anyone. Sure, the DOW is over 10000, but what about jobs-unemployment is predicted to keep on rising well into next year. Brace for it.
