    But if BofA didn’t pay $11M to Price and Krawcheck, then they might leave to go wreck another financial institution.

    This is one of those moments where most conservatives and liberals agree on something. Who knew Barry would be such a uniter with the results from the bank bail-outs? If they can afford to give such bonuses, they really didn’t need the bail-outs.

    The rationale behind the nameless and faceless escapes me. But the harm they seem to do affects so many.

    GT has simultaneously mocked OWS and justified it. How many cartoonists and writers can do that?

    The $11 million was a severance package. They did leave to wreck other companies

    Yes indeedy. The bank bailouts are probably the only issue where conservatives and the Fleabaggers find common ground.
    .
    Proposed student loan bailouts are anothe rmatter entirely. Learned something today: according to Atlantic, 82% of that debt was accrued in just the past decade.
    .
    Maybe #OWS and the right can find common ground on another principle: that much of higher education is gouging customers. Maybe Thomas Sowell should make that the topic of his next book.

    “Corporation: An ingenious device for obtaining individual profits without individual responsibility.” — Ambrose Bierce, 1906.

    Capitalism should be all about investing your sweat and your money in a business and getting rewarded for your work and your risk if you succeed. It has become a means by which a few invest everyone else’s money and work, and are rewarded whether they succeed or not.

    Why is it that they are called “police” when they enforce laws you like and “regulators” when they enforce laws you dislike?

    The Parrot is right, of course. It is much easier to start up a new company and compete when you don’t have to worry about justice, honesty, or the public interest, and can do any damn thing you please.

    JJRock’s spiritual heirs strut all over the business world today. Most of what they do turns out to be perfectly legal, but it is hard (impossible) to admire.
