高盛员工不都是高富帅

Dan Primack 2013年01月22日

不是所有的高盛人都能继续跻身美国最富有的1%人群。高盛最新公布的第四季度业绩报告显示,高盛员工人均薪酬为399,506美元,比上个月美国总统奥巴马设定的联邦个人所得税税率上调起点400,000美元低了494美元。

    

    高盛(Goldman Sachs)日前公布了第四季度业绩,包括年底的员工薪酬。从中我们可以看到,高盛的人均薪酬已不再属于传说中的1%,至少从最新的政治定义来看是这样。

    高盛员工人均薪酬为399,506美元,比上个月美国总统奥巴马设定的联邦个人所得税税率上调起点400,000美元低了494美元。

    当然,这个起点的设定更多是政治妥协的结果,并不是根据高盛的薪酬水平。高盛2012年人均薪酬还比2011年增长了6%。而且,有太多高盛员工赚的钱远远高于400,000美元,有些更是数倍于此。况且,新的税级也不适用于2011年收入。

    但它的确能证明一点。如果有人还要说新税率误伤了中产阶级,可能很难自圆其说。奥巴马最初提议以250,000美元为上调起点时,就有人固执地这样说过。说到底,如果你赚的钱比华尔街上收入最高的员工都多,那么你我应该都能认同,你确实是个富人。(财富中文网)

    Goldman Sachs yesterday reported fourth quarter earnings, including data on year-end employee compensation. What we learned was that the average Goldman employee isn't part of the fabled 1%, at least based on the most recent political definition.

    Average compensation at Goldman Sachs (GS) was $399,506 per employee, which falls $494 short of the $400,000 threshold that President Obama set last month for federal income tax increases on individuals.

    To be sure, this is more about compromised political goalposts than it is about Goldman Sachs compensation, since the 2012 figure actually was a 6% increase over 2011. Moreover, plenty of Goldman employees made well in excess of $400,000 -- several multiples of that, in some cases -- and the new tax brackets don't actually apply to 2011 income.

    But it does go to show how difficult it would be for anyone to claim that the new brackets unfairly sweep up members of the middle class, as some tried wrongheadedly arguing under Obama's original $250,000 proposal. After all, if you're doing better than the best-paid employees on Wall Street, then I think we can all agree you're rich.
