New York City securities industry bonus went up eight percent last year, to $121,890. Surprised? Didn’t think so. That Wall Street bonuses went up is roughly as unexpected as an airplane getting delayed at O’Hare: it doesn’t happen every time, but you can usually bet on it. That climb has made Wall Street bonuses the focus of the current debate about inequality.
