I came across some data listing the 2007 compensation for the CEOs for some of the companies involved in the sub-prime mortgage lending debacle (in one way, shape or form). It’ll be interesting to see what the CEOs make in 2008.
Bear Stearns: $11 million
Morgan Stanley: $18 Million
Lehman Brothers: $72 million
Goldman Sachs: $74 million
Countrywide Financial: $66.4 million (6 year average), and after Bank of America bought Countrywide the CEO is estimeated to make $100 million on the deal
