Lord Griffiths, vice-chairman of Goldman Sachs International and a former adviser to Baroness Thatcher, said he was “not ashamed” of the bank’s compensation plans. He also said the issue of banking compensation should not be thought about solely from a short-term perspective. He defended the bank’s bonuses, Griffiths said the general public should “tolerate the inequality as a way to achieve greater prosperity for all”, saying also that “we should not ... be ashamed of offering compensation in an internationally competitive market which ensures the bank businesses here and employs British people”.[2]
