AIG Bonuses and the Age of Entitlement

Jake DeSantis, a trader in the Financail Products division of AIG, tendered his whiney resignation in today's NYT claiming to be a victim because he is being denied his $750,000 bonus.

Diane Brady of Businessweek offers a point-by-point takedown of the unapologetic mindset of entitlement portrayed in the piece.

My additional comment:
The average neurosurgeon in NYC makes $425,000, which seems like a reasonable ceiling for an executive paper pusher at a failed insurance company.
