Those Obscene Bonuses

I'll be on CNBC's On the Money program tonight at 7 (eastern time) to discuss the recent spate of over-the-top Wall Street bonuses.

Charlie Gasparino revealed yesterday on CNBC that fifty execs at Goldman Sachs will be getting bonuses of $25 million each. More today from Roddy Boyd in the Post. The whole thing is nuts.

When is the Street going to draw the line on overpaying its people? Don't they have anything better to do with their shareholders' money?
