Many news stories and columns raise the issue of executive pay
in top American corporations.
(1a) If the company is publicly traded, shouldn’t the
stockholders have the final say over compensation for executives
and, if so, why is executive pay the business of anyone other than
the owners of the company (the stockholders)?
(1b) Is there an appropriate level of executive pay relative to
the pay for other employees and, if so, what is the level and how
should it be enforced?
(1c) Do you really think high pay for top level executives is a
problem or is it just something that people can use to stir up
resentment and score political points?
