Interesting Proposal to Put Highly Paid Financiers at Personal Risk If Their Firms Fail

A D & O Diary post includes some interesting back and forth proposals by smart people about whether highly paid financiers should be required to have personal money at risk as a deterrent to excessive risk taking. Much of the premise is tied to the stories of highly paid executives walking away unscathed and unburdened following financial fiascos. It’s an interesting debate.

Debate continues on quantifying the financial consequences of TwIqbalsee here from the originators fo the term.
