    Hmmm…Notice how he’s not an American CEO. Interesting: When he asks for sacrifice from others, he actually walks the talk. Citi tells us that we need to be responsible for our bad decisions, and then proceeds to not take responsibility for its bad decisions — and boosts interest rates to boot.

    I love it! A frugal CEO…I didn’t even know they existed. I think what Japanese business has realized will be realized here after the fall-out from bailouts and a recession–we simply cannot continue to allow the top of the corporate chain to earn such obscene amounts of money, unchecked.

    I still don’t like the idea of the government regulating salaries, but would prefer more Americans using their dollars to vote for companies with fiscally responsible leaders. The same could be said for politicians.

    Great find David!
