Goldman Sachs is on pace to pay annual bonuses that will rival the record payouts that it made in 2007, at the height of the bubble. In the last nine months, the bank set aside about $16.7 billion for compensation on track to pay each of its 31,700 employees close to $700,000 this year. Top producers are expecting multimillion-dollar paydays.

sgeir Jnsson um krsuna 2008 Fortune

asgeir_jonsson"I remember TV footage of Lehman employees weeping on the sidewalk, little knowing that the same scene would visit Iceland exactly three weeks later.

On Sept. 24 the Fed announced swap lines with Norway, Denmark, Sweden ... not Iceland. The government attempted a nationalization of Glitnir [Bank] the next Monday, leading to a systemwide bank run. For the first time in my life, I felt the helplessness of being a member of such a small nation."

Bandarskir bankar farnir a greia bnusa n

...eins og ekkert hafi skorist. yrfti a komast vinnu hj JPMorgan, damn!

Even when their profits dried up and they turned to taxpayers to stay afloat, the nation's biggest banks kept paying huge bonuses. But much of the money went not to top executives, but to star traders and salesmen, even as the economy battled through the worst recession in a generation.

...

The biggest bonus pool was paid out by J.P. Morgan Chase & Co., where $8.7 billion was distributed, a sum far larger than the $5.6 billion in earnings the bank reported. More than 1,600 Morgan Chase employees took home bonuses of $1 million or more.
