Admittedly, we've asked this question in various guises in the past, but US Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner has inspired us to ask it again.
According to DealBook, Geithner ducked a question this week on whether bankers are driven entirely by compensation. Asked whether this was so, he said -
' That is a very interesting question. I'm not going to answer that question. I think it is hard to judge motivation on these things."
Can you help Geithner judge bankers' motivation? Are you motivated by anything other than the size of your cheque? Please elucidate below.
