Managerial appraisal and compensation: The case of Spain
AbstractThis paper explores some fundamental tasks associated with corporate governance: manager appraisal and compensation.

Given this context, the work presented here has two objectives: 1.- To describe existing appraisal and compensation practices in Spain, comparing them with those used in the USA. 2.- To study the determinants of CEO compensation, and the relationship between CEO compensation and certain Board practices, using agency theory
