If I were a University President responding to the Globe's admonition (November 5, 2009:A16) to take a pay cut, I would say, "I will be the first to take a cut once those Finance Professors in the Business School take a cut. They, after all, either devised the derivatives that sank the economy, or trained the people that did. The Finance Professors need to give back in a big way."
I am waiting to see if they do.
