The WSJ did a survey of "Wall Street," meaning the top three dozen or so banks and investment firms. Behold those numbers!
Total projected Wall Street revenue, 2010: $448 billion (up 3%)
Total projected Wall Street pay, 2010: $144 billion (up 4%)
In other words, Wall Street pay this year is projected to be more than the gross domestic product of New Zealand. Of course, New Zealanders don't make credit default swaps. So.
