Pay Bonuses

My March 19 and 23 blogs on AIG Bonuses hit many nerves. It is a difficult and sensitive topic. Today’s Washington Post has two excellent follow up articles on the subject that I highly recommend to anyone interested in that topic. Just click on the titles.

Brady Dennis and Tomoeh Murakami Tse,  “Pay Czar Quietly Meets With Rescued Companies”, The Washington Post, Sunday, August 9, 2009, Page A01.

Amity Shlaes, “A Better Umpire for Corporate Pay” The Washington Post, Sunday, August 9, 2009, Page A17.
