David Swensen: Wall Street pay has been obscene

That's what the man says. Who, O Master? David Swensen, of course. He is the chief investment officer of Yale University's endowment. But I beg to differ. I really beg to differ.

I'll tell you what obscene is.

Obscene is … communists trying to steal our money, mentalists building wind farms everywhere, corrupt politicians preaching to us while living off us, Jack Pickles, Satan; and a general lack of respect for the desert ones, the mystical children.

O Master, what can be done?

We must turn our backs on the fools.

Will we retreat to the desert to live there forever?

It's a possibility.

Oh. Well, it's something to think about.

It certainly is.
