O Economic Sagacity

After at least $170 billion in government money to prop up a financial and insurance conglomerate so big that the implosion of the global economic network was assured to follow its downfall, Congress votes to slash performance compensation for AIG employees by 85%.

So when the well-being of the company's shareholders and customers rested on their shoulders, AIG's movers and shakers failed spectacularly. Now, amid employee desertions and a collapse in market confidence, the remaining brains are going to rescue not just the company's immediate stakeholders, but the entire modern world--all on a reverse tithe!

Oh yes, this will work for sure.
