Wharton B School: Executive Pay is Broken

Wharton finance professor Alex Edmans and a group of colleagues propose linking an executive’s compensation to the performance of the firm over a longer horizon.  The model resembles the idea outlined in previous posts of this blog: Regulate executive pay in the financial sector by linking it to the long term performance of key employment and average pay indicators of the U.S. economy as a whole.  This way bankers will be motivated to lend, invest and borrow so that somehow employment and average pay for everyone are increasing over time.

    I enjoy this blog very much

    Great perspective
    Unusual tact.
    You’re good.

    You should consider writing professionally
    Or you should monetize this effort.
    Unless you are a “fight the power” guy

    Reading is good
    Especially this blog.


    Some people probably don’t recognize the effort.
    Most blogs aren’t this thoughtful.
    Especially the children who blog.
    Like the facebookers and you-tubers!
    Lovely effort on your part though.
    You should keep it up!

    Double the number of posts
    Or you won’t get the reader base.
    Unless you like to be low down underground.
    Continually blogging may attract weirdos.
    Everyone can contribute to profits.

    But then again…
    And never forget…
    Go get ’em bad boy!!

  2. How about a $100bn levy on multi-nationals on site for bribes, corruption, fake everything and pollution? ,
