While only 20 miles due west of Wall Street, the town of Millburn, N.J., where Winkelried grew up, was a world away.

Fortune: The big financial pay pieupdated: Wed Nov 18 2009 14:55:00

As the world knows, the public is up in arms about the compensation being paid at financial companies that owe their very existence to massive government help. Ordinary citizens, earning ordinary pay (or none at all), burn to see bankers and Wall Streeters get rudely cut down to size. But what many people don't focus on is that lower pay for these corporate fat cats would simply mean more money for the shareholders who own their companies. At heart, it's this year's rebound in profits that is causing the commotion. Earnings at Goldman Sachs, currently everybody's favorite piñata, are up 70%; guessing what CEO Lloyd Blankfein will make has suddenly become a parlor game. Maddeningly for anyone already mad, the government spurred the profits by keeping interest rates low and allowing financial firms to fund their operations cheaply.

Lloyd Blankfein worries. True, as CEO of Goldman Sachs, he stands at the summit of the financial world. He just led his firm to its best year ever. He was paid $68.7 million in 2007 - record for a Wall Street chief - and recently bought a $26.5 million apartment at 15 Central Park West, the Robert A.M. Stern-designed building that also houses Sting and Sandy (Weill). But still, Lloyd Blankfein worries. "If you're really poor at what you do, maybe there's a 9% chance that you'll have a problem," he frequently says. "If you're really, really good, maybe there's a 3% chance." Or he says, "If you're on a beach and a tsunami hits, you'll drown whether you're a small child or an Olympic swimmer." Or he says simply, "Some things will go bad no matter how good you are."

Fortune: Captain's Blog, stardate 1/3/07updated: Thu Jan 04 2007 08:09:00

MARKETS: There you have it, in a nutshell, the whole trading year - all wrapped up in the first session of the year. Stocks started Tuesday strong, but ended up just a smidge: Dow up 11(actually the S&Ps fell a point plus) on concerns about the soft housing sector. Interestingly I was talking to one of the most famous hedge fund managers in the world (think Soros or Robertson, but not one of those two and I can't name him right yet), and he was saying that while the trend for U.S. stocks in his mind is up for 2007, he has this nagging underpinning of worry. He isn't sure what the bugbear is and that makes him uneasy. So it could be housing, but I say it's NEVER the 18-wheeler you see coming two miles away that kills you. It's something that sneaks up on you: from nat gas prices to Long Term Capital to (heaven help us), 9/11. On the other hand, it's a healthy rally that climbs a wall of worry. I'm concerned though, as is Lloyd Blankfein (CEO Of Goldman Sachs), that there just aren't any risk premiums o...
