I think that these executives should be paid their bonuses, primarily because we need the people who understand these complex financial WMD's to be able to unwind them and shut the company down in an orderly fashion. When the US government decided to step in and bail them out, they essentially validated the business practices at AIG.
Also, they were keenly aware of these bonuses for quite some time, so reversal of them at this point is clearly a knee jerk reaction to a known issue based on the media.
I do not support this acquisition and think that Anheuser-Busch is selling out. I'm no longer going to drink Anheuser-Busch products. I'll likely switch to a real American Beer like Sam Adams. Sorry, A-B, but you just lost a couple thousand dollars worth of revenue from this guy by selling your soul.
So you think that an economy that is on the verge of a severe recession should raise interest rates rather than keep them low to help stimulate the economy? Do you think the bigger job of the Fed is to encourage economic growth or control inflation? From your comment it seems the latter.
I am probably a good person but I haven't taken the time to fill out my profile, so you'll never know!
