Are Chief Executives Overpaid?, Hardback Book

Are Chief Executives Overpaid? Hardback

Part of the The Future of Capitalism series



Wages for the majority have been stagnant for decades, but a lucky few have enjoyed a pay bonanza.

Top company bosses take home in several days as much as most people earn in a whole year.

In this hard-hitting book, Deborah Hargreaves explains why pay for the top 0.1% has sky-rocketed in the past 20 years.

She gives a devastating account of how it has created a vicious circle that destabilizes our economy and undermines social cohesion, demolishing the twisted logic of the chief executives who say: 'I'm worth it', when that means raking in GBP70m a year.

A rigorous expose of the dysfunctional nature of our 'winner-takes-all' economy, this book debunks the myths behind top pay and examines a range of pragmatic solutions.
