Disgraced chief of failed bank Lehman Brothers pocketed £172million before collapse

This story is a week old but still needs highlighted. Corporate greed such as this is sickening. As with AIG execs taking a $500,000 retreat to a luxury hotel days after the bailout, what incentives do these wreckless and immoral 'captains of industry' have to steer their businesses away from financial meltdown when the gov't bails them out?

Surely this should be a crime? I call theft - theft of taxpayers money!

Nothing personal but if you just type "AIG" into the forum search you'll find 11 different threads on this in the first page alone.
