Some Bankers Are Taking Big Bonuses This Year, But They Are Not Famous


There are in fact bankers taking massive bonuses this year, like Richard Handler of Jefferies ($39 million stock grant) and the former president of Visa, bilker of small businesses ($24 million exit package). People could get outraged about that, if they wanted. But they probably won’t, for the same reason people prefer to watch stinky ensemble dramas with faces they know in them, like Valentine’s Day, than foreign movies starring strangers. [Dealbook/NYT]
