But what if the real issue is that the explosion of CEO compensation is actually detrimental to the health of the company? We've had a situation where a CEO can amass so much wealth so quickly that it hardly matters whether the company tanks in a few years and he's out a job. If he's sucked out a hundred million bucks from the company and into his personal accounts, he's pretty well set for life. Or maybe some other sucker company will take him on.
What if CEO pay were something like $300k/year. That's enough to live very comfortably, yet not so much that she doesn't worry about the company's long-term health. In this way, her financial future is tied to the company's financial future. She has that much more incentive to work hard and do everything right to ensure this nicely paying job is around for many years to come.
Am I wrong?
