AIG bonuses: Were AIG's bonuses morally justified?

  • No, they were too large.

    No, AIG's bonuses were not morally justified, because they were paid with taxpayer dollars. When a company receives and accepts a government bailout, they are essentially taken over by the government. A person should not think they will receive the same bonus that they would otherwise receive, because that is the penalty of getting in bed with the government.

  • AIG's Bonuses Unjustified

    AIG's bonuses were unjustified. The CEO's at AIG had just received an increase in salary when the economic was in a recession and added bonuses to those raises. Because of the unfairness of the bonuses, government made the CEO's pay up to 90 per cent of taxes on the bonuses.
