It's galling to watch a narrow elite of bosses do so well while everyone else struggles. Do they expect us to believe that their input to a company is worth 120 times more than the average worker's? This is a theme highlighted by Thomas Piketty in his bestselling economics tome, Capital in the Twenty-First Century. It's worse in the US than the UK, but it's still a problem here: pay inequality driven by top executives effectively setting each other's pay. There's only so far this inequality can stretch. If company bosses don't want to be hobbled with pay regulation by future populist governments, and if they want a free market capitalist system to survive in the longer term, they need to take a much more holistic, and far less selfish, view of things. That means giving staff better pay packages and seriously moderating their own. Yes some people at the top of companies often have the experience, insight, ideas and responsibilities that demand substantially higher pay than employees further down the rungs. http://www.ibtimes.co.uk/ftse-100-directors-pay-profligacy-shows-only-top-feeling-uk-economic-recovery-1469803
