Unit Background/Author Perspective

American CEOs) earn tidy sums. In many nations, a typical CEO earns 20 times what an
entry-level employee makes. In the United States, the multiplier is several hundred. Boards of
directors justify large pay packages by pointing to the tremendous difference in revenue between
well-led and poorly-led organizations. But many politicians, reporters, and workers remain
unconvinced. The first module examines extreme CEO compensation and whether it is justified

these issues, and it is presented in the unit's final module.
