Pay Limits in Stimulus May Cause Brain Drain, Industry Says


www.bloomberg.com

New restrictions on executive pay at U.S. banks receiving federal aid may cause talented managers to flee to hedge funds and foreign-owned banks, say critics of the measure.

The limits, championed by Senate Banking Committee Chairman Christopher Dodd, were tucked into a $787 billion fiscal stimulus bill approved yesterday by Congress. President Barack Obama plans to sign the measure early next week.

Wall Street execs have for the last decade taken bonus and salaries far and above the profits they have steered for the stock holders. Now that many of these companies have asked for a bail out, and have taken the Goverments money, as a taxpayer, I am appalled at the thought of continued million dollar bonuses being paid to these executives.

What is disturbing is that this leaves the Goverment with their tentacles in more and more legislation that is intertwined with the private business sector. Soon, where will we draw the line of seperation between the Goverment, and Private Business?

You mean all of those talented managers that have played a part in the entrenched system of greed and legalised corruption? Good riddance. These companies and their executives are like leeches on society.

Lol. Exactly. As if there arent tons of people who are currently locked out of that good old boys club that have more brains, talent, and ethics than the current crop does, and who are just chomping at the bit to have a chance to show themselves.

If the brains who created this mess are the ones being drained, whats the problem? And if other companies in other countries want to "steal them away" from us more power to them.

No, what is disturbing is that lobbyist & corporate campaign contributors
have erased the line of separation between the Government and private Business.

Nope, they added it back in after changing quite a few things.
