Are CEO's paid their marginal product? An empirical analysis of executive compensation and corporate performance
AbstractThe theory and reality of chief executive compensation is explored in this paper. The study here uses a panel of data on 143 executives from America’s largest corporations. The results suggest that earlier theoretical expectations and empirical findings of compressed wage scales may not hold when top-level managers are included.
