Wall Street to Reject Bailout

James Doran writes in The Guardian:

Fears are mounting that many Wall Street banks and financial firms will refuse to participate in the US government’s $700bn bail-out package, leaving global markets and world economies in a perilous state for months to come.

‘There is a growing feeling that banks … might instead decide to tough it out,’ said Thomas Caldwell, chairman and CEO of Caldwell Financial, a $1bn-plus fund manager.

Call all the CEO’s into a big room. Say, “You got us into this, you asked for our help getting you out of it, and NOW you’re rejecting our help because it comes with strings attached; because it takes away your massively inequitable compensation for farking things up…is that correct?”

VP’s get battlefield promotions on the spot.
