On Australian ABC TV's 7.30 Report tonight, there was discussion of the huge amounts Macquarie Bank executives have received and also a segment about the desperately poor in Lahore, Pakistan.

One Macquarie Bank exec managed to score $24 million in one year! A father in Lahore has taken his 11 year old son out of school because he can't afford it and has him working for 40 cents per day, for eleven hours work! Dad, who drives a motorised rickshaw earns $4 per day.

What an obscene juxtaposition!
