Recycled Corporate Executives

You know what happens to you when you are incompetent and fail right? You're out of a job. Not so with the executive class.

In this New York Times article, once again we see recycled CEOs.

YOU might think that board members overseeing businesses that cratered in the credit crisis would be disqualified from serving as directors at other public companies.

You would, however, be wrong.

Directors who were supposedly minding the store as disaster struck at companies like Countrywide Financial, Washington Mutual or Fannie Mae have not all been banished from other boardrooms. In many cases, directors just seem to skate away from company woes that occurred on their watch.
