Open up an intriguing dialogue about Wall Street controversy using political cartoons! Background information gives context, including quotes from various newspapers about compensation caps, bonuses, and the growing disenchantment with the average CEO. The cartoon uses symbolism, and 3 talking points (or writing points) to guide learners to deeper analysis of not only the cartoon, but other related issues.
