How Corporate Execs Felt About 9/11

-- by Dave Johnson

Go read The Big Picture: Post-9/11 Option Grants Under Scrutiny.

How did America's CEO's respond to the 9/11 attacks? By granting corporate executives special low-priced stock options after the market crashed. They saw 9/11 as an opportunity to make a buck. And then Bush granted them special tax breaks for the profits from those options. (Creating debt which the rest of us will be paying off for the rest of our lives.)
