Re: Lehman Brothers Bankruptcy[edit]

I understand where you're coming from but your edits are biased as well.

Instead of:

On October 6, 2008, CEO Richard Fuld testified before Congress. Rep. Waxman pointed to an idea of a compensation package that Fuld presumable received totaling $480 million over 8 years including the time leading to bankruptcy. Waxman said to Fuld, "My question is a simple one. Is this fair?" Fuld explained that he was not actually paid that total of cash. He actually received options and other incentives that later proved to be worthless.

...or your edits:

On October 6, 2008, CEO Richard Fuld testified before Congress. Rep. Waxman pointed out that Fuld had made nearly $500M since 2000, a salary incomprehensible to the average taxpayer, while Fuld was guiding Lehman to bankruptcy. Waxman said to Fuld, "My question is a simple one. Is this fair?" Fuld did not give a straight answer to the question, but only a meandering reply.

how about:

On October 6, 2008, CEO Richard Fuld testified before Congress. Rep. Waxman pointed out that Fuld had made nearly $500M since 2000, while guiding Lehman to bankruptcy. Waxman said to Fuld, "My question is a simple one. Is this fair?" Fuld claimed that he was not actually paid that total of cash. Instead, he supposedly received options and other incentives that later proved to be worthless.

That seems to get the point across while staying neutral. Friginator (talk) 03:35, 13 October 2008 (UTC)
