The article reports on the confirmation of U.S. President Barack Obama's pay czar Kenneth Feinberg that the pay of the top 25 executives at the seven largest bailed-out firms in the U.S. will be limited to 500,000 U.S. dollars. The confirmation was said to bring scrutiny against top remuneration in Great Britain and is expected to have a knock-on effect on top compensation of the international subsidiaries of firms struggling to pay themselves huge bonuses.
