It’s about corruption.

Put this together with the post above linking to MR. The point of the MR post is that we are inflating the real return of money that the big banks can borrow (from us), while depressing the return that ordinary savers can earn, in order to pump up bank earnings, so that we can help them “earn their way out of insolvency.” Geithner is in charge of hiding this set of facts.

And then they take those gross earnings, stolen from Main Street, and pay 80% that amount out to their traders and top 5% execs. And Feinberg is helping hide this set of facts.

What does it all mean? That we’re trying to recapitalize a kleptocracy. We’re all Nigeria now.

I hope the New Obama Democrats get 5% of all that action. Because they won’t get another dollar from me.

The proper solution for excessive pay is tax policy: we need to substantially increase marginal tax rates on excessive cash salaries or other compensation policies that don’t encourage long-term alignment of individual and corporate interests.

But of course, as Felix says, rationalizing pay is not really the point here.

This is disgusting. And if Obama can’t see that, he really is no different from Bush. Really.

They’ll just give him gobs of money when he goes back to private industry from the government in a couple of years.
