What AIG and people have in common

March 17, 2009 - John D'Agostino
Security officers have been deployed at the entrances of AIG, so I am sure they will be in on the "stimulus" bonuses soon.

But citizens upset with AIG and its new round of bonuses need to also look at themselves as well. Are residents who are upset also in debt? Do these residents take luxurious vacations when they do not have the money? Do these residents buy something that exceeds their income level?

If the answer is yes, then they are just as guilty as AIG.

In a strange sense, AIG is similar to governments and schools in our state. A lessening population means fewer customers. Have costs gone down for schools and governments? Have public workers taken pay cuts during this crisis?

See, we really aren't much different from AIG.
