Pigs at the Trough!
Jeff Matthews say Merrill is outing certain tech companies they follow with suspicious option grants . Duh!
$287 million for a Google salesperson and $21 million in pay for Energy CEO's who are not out drilling or discovering - yes this has been going on for a while - but the headlines get buried when stocks are rising.
We need a salary cap. David Stern should run the NYSE.
I can't believe Google are making that mistake - you look at historical examples of this sort of thing (Enron, anyone?) and it's almost always a symptom of some deeper malaise. Short term behaviour being rewarded in a way that leads to long term destruction.
