Ireland To Introduce 90% Tax On Bankers Bonuses

Recommended Posts

expect the banks to start moaning about losing their talent due to brain drain.

Don't they know that worldwide banks have unlimited job positions for over paid bankers who can just leave one job and go anywhere else they want for a huge salary?

Yes they are crying out for talent that lends money to property developers with no hope of it being payed back.

It's just empty appeasement, political talk, isn't it?

The Irish banks are zombie banks for a decade at least.

Cant lend anyone anything . . . no deals, loans, nothing . . . for years . . . so no bonuses.

Didn't the Irish Finance Minister consider them all up for sale?

Rubbish story.

I'd be suprised if there is any form of 'investment banking' left in Ireland.

Most who work in the banking industry there are probably normal retail banking staff.

When I lived in Dublin 2007-09 there was little sign of any banker types around. I understand most left with the only sign being the BMWs and Mercs dumped on HP in the airport!

Prior to the crunch there was a lot of activity around the IFSC area.

Ireland's wont see a banking boom for 20 years at least. A decade is too short to sort out their problems.

They'll just switch the remuneration from bonuses to vastly-increased basic pay, as seems to be happening here in the UK.

Which undermines the entire model used to justify the big bonus's in the first place- their motivational power. In the end it's about extracting as much wealth as possible from the system by whatever means possible and f*ck every one else.

yep but its not just the bankers who are at this, its employees in most corporate outfits don't give a ******, its all about extracting as much money out of the company as possible, while maintaining an outward facade of being a good employee.

Most employees elsewhere have to actually do some work though. They may want to do that, but it isn't an option. If they just sit back and try to get as much as possible then they won't last long. If the company does that it'll go out of business. With the banks, though, the whole system is set up so that most money has to pass through their hands, and there's nothing stopping them from helping themselves to as much of that as possible in the process.
