Argument: Reneging AIG bonuses would undermine shareholder confidence
- Debate: AIG bonuses - pro argument.
Thomas Keeley. "In Defense of AIG Bonuses". DC Republican. March 18, 2009 - "Look at this from the role of shareholder: would you want to have the company you’re invested in revoke contracts that were designed to keep your talent on board, during an especially difficult time? If you were in fact a shareholder, and saw that it had the potential to yield a return with the right people and incentive, I would hope you’d say yes."
