Wall Street and The War On IraqFebruary 2, 2011 8:34 pm
We wrote about 135 Billion recently – the total Wall Street compensation for the year 2010. That number is strikingly close to another number that is a US priority – the war on Iraq and Afghanistan. According to the Department of Defense, the US has budgeted 159.3 Billion USD for the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan for the year 2011.

This equals that!
And, thinking that Wall Street deserves that 135 Billion would be a classic ‘fooled by randomness’ scenario. Iraq and Afghanistan we understand – Wall Street, we don’t !
