The gap between executive pay and the average salary has skyrocketed during the nineties, and some critics say the inequity is damaging — to the corporationa and to the economy as a whole. Recently executive compensation has increased even more because of competition among companies for the best talent. A panel talks about the growth of executive salaries and other compensation, and how it affects those at other levels of pay.

Guests
