Pay without Performance has pointers to the continuing growth in inequity between company leaders and their staff. Not nice but I don’t know how one might stop this kind of thing.

The most telling detail for me is the observation p98, that every single CEO in the S&P Execucomp Database has a defined benefit pension plan. This, while bosses everywhere have been shifting their employees onto defined contribution plans, where they, and not the company, bear all the risk, and while the Republicans in the US are trying to do the same with Social Security.
