  •  It's a crap argument (0+ / 0-)

    Aren't you the guy who believes rightwing economists like they are messianic figures?  Maybe I am mixing you up with someone else.  

    A bad CEO still gets paid millions to fail at the job.  You could hire a random business graduate and probably get identical performance of many CEOs.  Most CEOs are not worth a tenth of what they are paid, including the "good" ones.  

    Executives as whole are overpaid.  In other countries they are not paid as much, and there is no difference in performance.  

    Don't like XOM and OPEC? What have YOU done to reduce your oil consumption? Hot air does NOT constitute a renewable resource!

    •  not true (0+ / 0-)

      It's simply not true that CEOs in other countries are paid less.  They may take home less cash but they get far more fringe benefits such as private jets and chateaus.

      Crooks are crooks no matter where they live.

      A gaffe in Washington is when you tell the truth and people act surprised.
