Hard to Understand Why We’re in a Struggling Economy, Isn’t It?

Shares

From the Wall Street Journal:

Under fire for his role in the near-collapse of Citigroup Inc., Robert Rubin said its problems were due to the buckling financial system, not its own mistakes, and that his role was peripheral to the bank’s main operations even though he was one of its highest-paid officials.

Nothing like accountability, is there? I wonder how I can get a job that pays over $100 million in ten years without being important to the decision-making operations of the corporation that hires me. Maybe I can just promise to lose $18 billion dollars.

If you appreciate an independent voice holding Montana politicians accountable and informing voters, and you can throw a few dollars a month our way, we\'d certainly appreciate it.
