The Rich: Once We ‘Clawed Back’ Them All
July 30, 2012

The movers and shakers of scandal-ridden Wall Street are busy scapegoating a ‘few rotten apples’ — and hoping the rest of us don’t notice they’re still holding billions in ill-gotten gains.

By Sam Pizzigati

Remember Ina Drew? This past spring Drew had her 15 minutes of fame as the JPMorgan Chase exec in charge of the reckless derivatives trading that may end up costing the Wall Street banking giant as much as $7.5 billion.

Drew will apparently pay a price for her role. JPMorgan CEO Jamie Dimon announced earlier this month that the bank will “claw back” approximately two years worth of the pay Drew has already collected.

2. Jamie Dimon told Drew that her department needed to be more aggressive (reckless)...


to generate more income for JPMorgan - the department that was supposed to cover and insure their other risky activities. That tidbit came out the second this scandal broke.

How much is being clawed back from Jamie Dimon?
