Biz, U.S.: Rep. Barney Frank wants to try to take back the AIG bonuses

  • Good for him! He’s a cool guy. Frank, a Democrat, said he’ll look into taking the roughly $1 billion in bonuses, which the company says it’s legally obligated to give out, away from the company. “We need to find out whether these bonuses are legally recoverable,” Frank said. AIG Financial Products is receiving half of the bonuses – they’re the part of the company that made the credit default swaps that screwed up the economy. source
