Citigroup Inc. Chief Executive Officer Vikram Pandit said he will take a salary of $1 and no bonus until the bank, which has accepted $45 billion in government bailout money, returns to profitability. âI get the new reality and I will make sure Citi gets it as well,â Pandit said today in testimony before the U.S. House Financial Services Committee. Lawmakers called eight bank CEOs to Washington to explain how they were using their portion of the governmentâs $350 billion of rescue funds to boost credit. Citigroup and the nationâs biggest banks have come under fire from lawmakers who criticized bonus payments and corporate expenses such as new executive jets at a time when the government was giving them billions to revive the economy. President Barack Obama last month called the bonuses âshamefulâ and the âheight of irresponsibility.â JPMorgan Chase & Coâs Jamie Dimon, Morgan Stanleyâs John Mack, and Bank of America Corp.âs Kenneth Lewis were among the other CEOs at todayâs hearing who also wonât receive a bonus for 2008. http://www.bloomberg.com/apps/news?pid=20601087&sid=aPE1ur_e9PKk&refer=home Now, thatÂ´s what I call "krass Keynesianism"
