Hey wait a minute, isn’t this one of the companies that rallies behind Al G(wh)ore and carbon emissions and global warming stuff? Why are they flying around in private jets and polluting my world? Is this global warming stuff for real or do they just make it up to line the pockets of another rich guy Al G(wh)ore? Maybe Al could answer this for us after he gets off HIS private jet and is carted around in his SUVs. Amazing how ignorant the minions on the left have becaome. Have a carbon emitting day (and don’t worry about it)

So many CEO’s nowadays are just glorified managers playing with investor’s and retirement money like it’s a game and paying themselves and friends bonuses regardless of how they perform. Take the CEO of Exxon-Mobil, what has he ever had to invest or risk to make his Billions??

Seriously, if you want to get up in arms.. let’s do it over a waste of Millions. Anyone who flies on corporate jets knows that a few hundred thousand dollars is nothing.

Seriously.. I guess I would expect journalists to have alot more “juicy” stories to sink their teeth into than the one I just read.

Thanks.

Acoona looks and acts more like Alta Vista: fine for 1995 but woefully dated in 2009. And, Acoona links to Yahoo, Microsoft Live, and Google to pump up their own result. Cut out the middleman: go to Live or Yahoo or Google first.

I personally can’t fault these guys- the majority of their income and net-worth is tied to the longterm performance of the company and its stock price. Racking up $100k of travel is nothing on a timeshare/leased jet. Argue that they don’t need to travel privately, but the fact is that Google is not in line for a government handout, they’ve created long-term wealth for their shareholders and they have the cash to pay for these perks.

In the eyes of the board, they must feel the cost/benefit of having their CEO be able to securely and freely travel vs. waiting in line at the airport dealing with the delays the rest of us put up with, is worth it.

Apparently they think highly of Google there, as they point out that they are “Top Ranked” by Google. How ironic.

My understanding is that, upon exercise, you incur an amount of “ordinary income” (not capital gains) equal to the difference between the strike price of the option and the market value of stock on the date the option was granted. (Yes, any capital gains AFTER that grant date are taxed as capital gains.)…for what it’s worth.
