The troubling thing is at the end of the day, these folks earn these bonuses using the investments of the so called little people. Give more money back to the investors, they are the ones who's 401ks, and credit cards have taken a beating thanks to the Wall Streeters. Wall Street created global economic ruin for hundreds of millions. They don't deserve the big fat bonuses.

If the Wall Street people don't have the moral compass to regulate themselves in this regard, then the Government needs to do so.

As an investor, a stock holder, and a tax paying citizen, I don't understand how these companies can continue to throw money at these people like this. This affects MY bottom line. It pulls money from the return of my investments, and it pulls money from the net profit on my stocks.

Stop it with the uber-fucking-bonuses already...

make 5 figures
INSTRUCTIONS:
STEP 1:The first thing to do
COPY, PASTE and SAVE this entire post in word
or notepad on your computer so you can come back to it later.
After that, if you are not already a PayPal user you need to go to
the PayPal website at www.paypal.com and SIGN UP.
To receive credit card payments from other people you must sign up for a PREMIER or BUSINESS account (not just a PERSONAL account).
This is highly recommended to allow others easy payment options.
To place the initial $6 into your account, you will have to verify your bank account with PAYPAL
PAYPAL is 100% secure and is used by millions of people worldwide.
STEP 2:Here is where the action occurs.
Then next send a $1.00 payment to each of the 6 email addresses on the current list from your PayPal account. To do this quickly and successfully, follow these simple steps:
1. Login to PayPal and click the "Send Money" tab near top of the screen.
2. In the "Recipient's Email" field type: the email address
3. In the "Amount" field type: "1" (your $1.00 payment)
4. In the "Category" field select: "Service" (Keeping it
legal)
5. In the "subject" field type: "EMAIL LIST",
6. In the "message" field type: "PLEASE PUT ME ON YOUR EMAIL
LIST".
(By doing this, you are creating a service and maintaining the legality of the system by "paying" for the service.)
7. Finally, click on the "Continue" button to complete the payment.
8. Repeat these steps for each of the 6 email addresses. that's it!
(By sending the $1.00 payment to each address, you are
implementing
the compounding POWER of the system. You will reap what you sow!)
Here is the current e-mail list:
**********
The email list:
1) [email protected]
2) [email protected]
3) [email protected]
4) [email protected]
5) [email protected]
6) [email protected]
**********
1) 15(1)= 15 people ($1)=$15
2) 15(15)= 225 people ($1)=$225
3) 15(225)= 3375 people ($1)=$3375
4) 15(3375)= 50625 people ($1)=$50625
5) 15(50625)= 759375 people ($1)=$759375

STEP 3:Now take the 1 email off of the list that you see above (from your saved file), move the other addresses up (6 becomes 5,5 becomes 4, etc.) and add YOUR email address
(the one used for your PayPal account) as number 6 on the list.
This is the only part of the document that should be changed.
** Make sure to use the email address you registered with PayPal **
STEP 4 now post new file created in STEP 3 to at least 200 newsgroups
or
message boards. Keep in mind that there are tens of thousands of
groups online!
All you need is 200, but remember the more you post
the more money you make - as well as everyone else on the list!

GOOD LUCK!

You'll be the one sniveling when your company get smashed like a ping-pong ball, when Wall Street takes it's dive. But you're too arrogant and narrow minded to think that could ever happen.

Only if you own stock in Goldman, Citi, Morgan etc.

Otherwise the bonuses are irrelevant to you and your portfolio. They're just used to attract the best talent to those companies.

No, you're wrong. Those companies handle all sorts of transactions investment, consumer banking, etc., and the bonuses come at the expense of the bottom line. So when it looks like they're not going to be as profitable as they want to be, what do they do?
1. Lay off a major portion of their rank and file. Which has a spill over affect on the economy as now there are thousands upon thousands of people who no longer have jobs to pay for things and require public assistance and such.
2. Outsource and shift jobs over seas which means the money to pay those salaries rarely if ever makes it back to the US.
3. Raise fees and penalties, lower dividends and interests paid on various types consumer accounts.
4. If all else fails, start "firing" executives, which means they get a great big platinum parachute on the way out, and bring a whole new set of people.
I've been watching this mess for over 20 years now, this is what happens.

All those things have a pretty weak link to bonus pool populist fury.

People are just jealous that some people make that much money. It has about as much real impact (next to none) on the rest of the world as baseball pitchers who make 10 million a year.

I think the amounts are ridiculous and I wish I got that much but I'm not going to start pretending it has any kind of national economic impact because it just doesn't.

It does keep New York City humming and is the only thing keeping the city from bankruptcy so as far as I'm concerned the bigger the bonus pool the better.

This won't last forever, but at least in the last year a freeking zombie could have turned a profit on Wall Street. Government propaganda gave investors overconfidence like nothing seen in the past. For nearly a year investors have been throwing their money into corporations who are otherwise losing money. Everything is "better than expected" and will continue to be "better than expected" until the bubble bursts.
