WSJ: Wall Street Bonuses and Compensation Slightly More Than 2007 Record

The Wall Street Journal is reporting:

An analysis by The Wall Street Journal shows that executives, traders, investment bankers, money managers and others at 38 top financial companies can expect to earn nearly 18% more than they did last year—and slightly more than in the record year of 2007. The conclusions are based on an examination of securities filings for the first nine months of 2009 and revenue estimates through year-end.
