Chart: Finance Industry Salaries vs the Private Sector

leave a comment »

A little more perspective on the financial reform issue. And a question: is it more surprising that the average salary for people in finance is around double that of people in the private sector as a whole, or that private sector salaries have only doubled in the last 60 years, while those in the finance sector did the same in just the last 20 years?

The chart appears here, and I came to it via The Huffington Post.
