While I won't engage your hyperbole, I couldn't agree more about the CEO being shielded from the PPS decimation! What a goon, gets paid millions, and the Commons get wiped! That's the thing about Wall-Street, if you ca'tn enrich the Common's PPS, how does it benefit the Co. for you to still be "fine-and-dandy"? Where's your REALl incentive, except for possibly losing your job, and even then, there's so much financial cushion, so what!
If I were the CEO here, I'd feel so "terribly responsible", I'd at least try and do something, more than "scratch my head and act befuddled! Terrible job as CEO here with this disaster!
