    So, if one of these ne’er-do-well banks lends money out and gets it back, the bank classifies that as ‘success’? If so, then how do they pay for the bonuses?

    There should be a tax on anyone playing in the sandboxes of risk – call it insurance a la the FDIC. They are in a risky business and they or their brethren have a nasty habit of imposing costs on the rest of us. Treat them like they treat bad credit risks…
