    Goldman Sachs CEO Lloyd Blankfein annual earnings $2.2 million with a $14.2 million bonus. Goldman Sachs won a $12.9 billion payout from the government's bailout of AIG. Goldman Sachs´ Tax value: Goldman Sachs estimated in December 2008 to pay $14 million in taxes international for 2008 in comparison with $6 billion the previous 12 months, after making $2.3 billion income and paying $10.9 billion in worker pay and bonuses. the corporate’s helpful tax value dropped to in basic terms approximately a million p.c. (USD $sixteen million) from 34.a million p.c. in 2007 (USD $6 billion) as a results of a company technique to shift as a results of tax credit and, in accordance to Goldman Sachs, "variations in geographic income blend" for this reason reducing the corporate's tax criminal accountability. Many critics argue that this help in Goldman Sach's tax value is done by applying shifting its income to subsidiaries in low or no-tax international locations. Goldman Sachs had 28 such subsidiaries on the time, inclusive of 15 interior the Cayman Islands. in accordance to representative Lloyd Doggett (D-TX), "with the splendid hand out begging for bailout money, the left is hiding it offshore." EDIT: So what? you don't understand your person unique question, "why do Liberals cry approximately six discern CEO salaries, yet are mute on six discern Union Bosses salaries?"; and you have purely replaced the region. If George W. Bush hadn't authorized the bailout of AIG, Lloyd Blankfein would have been sacked by applying the shareholders of Goldman Sachs. Lloyd Blankfein's $14 million greenback bonus became paid for with American taxpayer money. it is egregious in a lot of different strategies: purely the quantity of the bonus, the audacity of giving any bonus in any respect to such an no longer worth and unrepentant piece of crap who became a needed participant interior the loss of life of the U.S. monetary gadget, the taxpayer as a results of fact the source of the bonus money, and the cavalier brush aside for the yankee taxpayers' efforts to keep the U.S. monetary gadget. moreover, any time you desire to do away with all company political contributions and company personhood for marketing campaign spending purposes purely enable me understand and that i will assist your efforts.
