Questions for discussion:

  • Compensation for work done is a controversial topic and often receives great public attention when the numbers are extraordinarily large or small. What is your view of the compensation paid to these CEOs?
  • Do you believe that there should be ceilings set by government (through taxes) or other regulatory bodies? Explain your thinking.
  • Is there anything inherently wrong with anyone receiving high levels of compensation?
  •  How would you decide proper compensation for work provided? Explain your thinking.
