Iím writing because my family and I were affected by the economic collapse of 2008, and we donít want it to happen again.
One way to change the incentives so Wall Street doesnít collapse our economy again would be for regulators to set up a way for shareholders to grab back ill-gotten gains. When CEOs make almost 500 times as much as workers, it is debatable if people on Wall Street should be setting their own pay or even getting bonuses, and whether certain corporate charters should be revoked or not.
If it turns out that the profits in a given year were built on shoddy practices that become clear in the out-years, those bonus payments should be forfeited.
Thank you for considering my comment,
