How does our dedication to "success" ( he who does with the most toys wins) fuel our society and Wall Street in particular? Is it ethical or even practical for top executives to be paid 350 - 500 times their average employee? Is the primary responsibility to maximize profits for share holders? Why are hedge-fund managers taxed at preferable lower rates? Should Wall Street CEO's be "punished" for unethical behavior with $50 million bonuses? Come join four top executives and an extremely knowledgeable educator as they dissect one of the most important ethical dilemmas of our current times: the growing divide between the 1% and the 99%.
