OK so at a mere $300m over eight years he wasn’t the fattest of the fat cats, but this story still beggars belief:

Mr Fuld said he took “full responsibility for the decisions that I made and for the actions that I took” and defended his actions as “prudent and appropriate” based on information he had at the time.
