    Market or Racket: do we need a new approach to executive pay?

    The high level of executive pay has been a media and political target for years.

But would that not cause them to leave for foreign firms or private firms? Executive pay: market or racket? These questions were at the centre of a recent event hosted by London Business School’s Centre for Corporate Governance.
