Here’s an interesting question: is the CEO of your company 419 times more valuable than you are? A study has determined that top executives make 419 times more than the guy on the factory floor (or in the cube farm, I assume). In 1980, top executives made about 42 times more than your average working stiff. The real question is, are companies better run now than the were 20 years ago? If they are, then I really fear to think about how bad things were then.
