So today, US bankers have been shown to have earned 40% extra last year (Guardian: http://www.guardian.co.uk/business/2011/dec/14/executive-pay-increase-america-ceos). All of this amongst America’s complaints of dire fiscal crisis, the Occupy Wall St. movement and a hulking global financial downturn that’s got the EU by the balls too. It just goes to show how inherently corrupt and flawed the capitalist model is; if a system can justify congratulating the fatcats that are effectively punishing the majority of ‘normal’ people with enormous bonuses (let’s face it, the only thing that talks to these guys is money), then it needs to go.
