    That's why CEOs didn't get $10 million bonuses during Ike's Administration. Why would the Bd of Directors authorize a $10 million payout to a CEO if Uncle Sam was going to get $9,100,000 of it? The highest tax rate in the 1950s was 91%. Somehow we survived. Yacht sales were, admittedly, somewhat slower than today.
