Interesting blog on the BBC site about
Bob Diamond's hefty 22 million earnings for the last year, or rather the comments on the blog are interesting. He's head of Barclays investment banking service which has been doing rather well of late, but is he worth this much?
As you might expect, there's a bit of a kerfuffle about it and overall it's another bad day for the public image of banks.
I've heard the argument that the market will pay you what you are worth for the benefits you bring to the company. I'm not convinced. And it's a shame the same arguments don't seem to be trotted out when we're discussing teachers' or NHS staff pay. What
is it worth to the nation to save or transform lives anyway?
