Morgan Stanley Reports $9.4B Loss From Bad Bets on Mortgage-related Debt – CEO Accepts Blame and Says He Won't Take Bonus

Comments Off

If it wasn’t so sad you may almost feel sorry for poor CEO of Morgan Stanley John Mack. After making bad bets on mortgage-related debt, Morgan Stanley reports a $9.4B writedown. As a result, it had to get $5B from an arm of the Chinese government. This is what happens when no one is regulating this industry. However, in a statement accepting blame, the CEO said he would forgo this year’s bonus. Not return his multi-million dollar salary, or fire those responsible, or call for a criminal investigation, but just forgo his bonus. Where’s the Bush Justice Deparment? When will this corporate mischief stop? When will corporations be held accountable for their misdeeds?
