Everyone is looking over their shoulders and saying if company X has made this big award unless we do we're going to lose our top people. To find out, we analyzed recent job growth data for all 50 states over ten- five- and one-year periods. However, the public discourse can and does enter the board room when directors must consider the media implications of executive compensation decisions. Pay ratios are the way forward Making it mandatory for companies to publish their pay ratios is one way to curb excessive growth of executive pay and income inequality. I have put in calls to four executive recruitment firms, Harvey Nash, Spencer Stuart, Burns Carlton and Hays Executive, and am still hoping that they will put someone up for interview who works in executive recruitment. For example, the Sales Director's performance related bonus may be based on incremental revenue growth turnover; a CEO's could be based on incremental profitability and revenue growth.

However, transparency and what information companies choose to release to the public varies greatly. It's not uncontroversial to say that a lot of research demonstrates little relationship between pay and performance. It's entirely right that people who improve the economy and people's lives and take risks get well paid, but these people are not taking risks and getting a huge pay packet based on a myth. This migration, particularly from the Northeast, has profound economic ramifications. Marginal productivity theory seems to move in only one direction. It started off quite quickly when the Conservative party got into power in

New York, New Jersey and Connecticut all lost industrial jobs over the past decade, and rank in the bottom 10 of states. Marginal productivity theory seems to move in only one direction. There has been a recent trend to cutting the highest bracket tax payers, a notable example being the tax cuts in the U. Further, market data on public company pay philosophies indicate that most public companies today target executive pay opportunity at the median of a peer group of similarly-sized companies and rely almost exclusively on actual company performance to determine the amount of pay ultimately realized or realizable.

Paying the best more and taxing the high paid less became a cornerstone of this economic argument. Indiana, it should be noted, is on this list as well—still holding its own despite the shift.
