Are Wall Street Executives Getting a Raw Deal?

In this segment of The Motley Fool's financials-focused show, Where the Money Is, banking analysts Matt Koppenheffer and David Hanson discuss the impact of stock-based compensation and which method, cash or stock, they like to see executives rewarded.

    The fines that the banks have had to pay stay in the banking system. The profits that are made on the "shadow banking" transactions that the banks have been conducting since deregulation was signed into law, have not been taxed. None of this money has come back to main street. Wells got caught in a "shadow banking" transaction, with a Mexican drug cartel, that generated $367 billion. What if the five largest banks engaged in two transactions per day since 04, of the magnitude of the transaction that Wells got caught in. How much money is that? I'm not the only one looking at this. Mr. Dimon and his associates are well aware, as they are in Davos, that the chickens are about to come home to roost.
