AIG Retention Bonuses Paid to FORMER Employees

AIG Retention Bonuses Paid to FORMER Employees | The Big Picture

The scale of corporate corruption now manifest among senior bankers as class is beyond anything the most extreme Marxist could imagine.

I suppose many of us on the left have long innocently just seen finance capitalism as a way to screw waged workers. But what we have here is a wholesale effort by the banking elite (an elite 1000s of people) to strip the wealth from more or less anyone who bought into the system - pension savers, home owners, 401k contributors, technological innovators.

What we really need, but will not get, is a proper way of assessing value in society. What we have now is just a huge system on expropriation.
