From the Paper:

"Michael Milken's vast and increasingly powerful junk-bond network fostered the "merger mania" of the 1980s, in which his clients, partners, and allies, among others, engaged in a wave of corporate mergers, acquisitions, hostile takeovers, and leveraged buyouts. By the end of the 1980s, the junk-bond market had grown to $150 billion in size, and Drexel Burnham had become one of the leading financial firms in the United States. Milken's own operations accounted for at least half of the firm's profits, and his own salary zoomed from $25,000 in 1970 to $550 million in 1987 (the highest annual compensation at that time) ("Leveraged buyouts," 2002, 4-5)."
