Curbs on Executive Pay Won’t Pay Off

Compensation of Wall Street executives has been raising eyebrows for some time. So, when Dick Fuld, Lehman Brothers’ CEO, had to defend the fairness of his payouts in a painful congressional testimony, he seemed well-positioned to become a poster child of the excesses of the Golden Age. Unfortunately, attempts to prevent “unnecessary and excessive risks” by curbing executive pay are unlikely to succeed: many executives whose institutions suffered catastrophic losses or ruin in 2007-2008 were victims of financial natural selection, not greed.


The Fannie and Freddie Debacle

The Government (& the Media) Got It Wrong

There is little doubt that the nationalization of government sponsored enterprises, Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, in September was a major contributor to the escalation of the credit crisis to its most violent stage yet. While their debt holders appeased, investors in their preferred and common stocks did not fare nearly as well. The damage resulting from the nationalization could be seen on multiple fronts, yet the mainstream media’s focus was misdirected throughout.


Financial Darwinism explores the origins, drivers, and implications of the ongoing tectonic financial shift. It then equips executives and investors with actionable approaches to creating lasting economic value amidst complexity and uncertainty.
