The Dancing Baby Banker


This week’s cover story by Gabriel Sherman, “Show Me the Money,” takes a behind-the-scenes look at AIG’s new CEO, Robert Benmosche, who is fighting government pay czar Kenneth Feinberg — and the populist wind at his back — for every penny he can get to pay his furious traders, who are threatening to walk and take the U.S. economy down with them. When you’re done reading it, check out this animation of the cover’s dancing baby banker, based on photography by Donat.
