John Carney of Clusterstock thinks they do. He’s talking with Kai Ryssdal today on Marketplace. They’ll chat about AIG and some other things, but here’s a taste of what John thinks.

The bonus issue is not just a distraction or a side-issue. It’s part of the larger problem, a gaudy demonstration of what is wrong with our financial rescue attempts.
