I know this sounds anti-capitalism. But think about it. Executives received a pay ratio of 30x in 1978. Today, that ratio was 286x in 2015.
No economist can defend these numbers. And when you look at quality of life, nothing changes when you lose, say $20MM on $66MM. But that amount distributed to the lowest scale employee could make a big difference not just in their lives, but also in the economy.
The issue I see is executive pay increases because the data is available now and it's probably difficult to convince execs to take less. So, cap it like in the NBA or NFL to make the market more competitive.
