conscience in the finance industry?

Possible

AIGs ex CEO refused his 22mil settlement on grounds that he didnt really get to enact his plan and that he only stayed for a month. My faith in humanity is restored a tiny bit

I think he figured treas dept would take it anyway after buying the company out. He probably got to convert his AIG options to something worth something, too.

In an industry where attention spans are in terms of days at best, it would seem unnecessary. I mean CEOs are able to go qtr after qtr and lie their teeth off but still have a job and make money like it grows on trees.

Maybe but still a good sum of money and probably much to the chagrin of some other CEOs I figure.

based on the title of this thread, I assumed it was about oxymoronic statements.
