Google Founders Get $1 Salary With No Bonuses

One of the biggest finance news last week was AIG’s bonus payment to its execs to the tune of USD$165 million. Nevermind that AIG was essentially bankrupt if not for the rescue package put up by the White House.

What do you think? Is this feasible for Google to implement?
