WITH BOARDS LIKE THESE... Kimberly Strassel has an interesting article discussing the NY Attorney General's case against former NYSE head Dick Grasso--available online in Tuesday's Opinion Journal. The extraordinarily high level of compensation given to Grasso in his contract made many headlines. I have not followed the case very closely and am not familiar with enough details to form an opinion, but as Strassel's article shows, there's more to this story than I first suspected. Namely, you had a board that voted on the contract but then turned on the very same man that they UNANIMOUSLY agreed to so generously compensate. Curious...
