ABSTRACT
The author offers opinions on a provision of the U.S. American Recovery & Reinvestment Act economic stimulus law which places restrictions on the salaries of executives of financial services firms receiving funds from the Troubled Asset Relief Program bailout. The limits, introduced into the law by Senator Christopher Dodd, are said to be unfair and unnecessary.
