Banking Execs Flee with Millions of Dollars in Golden Parachute

Posted to Infographics  |  Nathan Yau

I figured out how I am going to get rich, and I'm going to share my secret with you. I'm going to become a high-profile banking executive, do a horrible job, get fired, and then end up rolling in cash. You think to yourself, "Uh, that doesn't sound right you crazy kook." Ah, but that's where you're wrong. That's the American way! In the below infographic slash comic, we see executives stepping down from their top-floor, corner office with millions of dollars and a golden parachute to slow down the fall.

This infographic was created by Jess at WallStats, who is starting to become a regular here on FlowingData (and Mint). If you want to win one of his stylish, dead sexy posters, this is the last day to do it. Get your entries in now.

[Thanks, Jess]
