Executive compensation and the role of government
What reaction, if any, should the government take regarding executive compensation? One example $3.6 billion in bonuses Merrill Lynch executives received shortly before the merger with Bank of America. This story has two sides - nothing in their contract prevented the distribution of the "earned" bonuses but the payment was rushed through before the merger. Also, bear in mind that this was after the U.S. Government stepped in and rescued the company to prevent it from going into bankruptcy. So these executives walked away with the "golden parachute" after tanking Merrill Lynch and forcing the government to spend billions to protect our economy.
