only 4 times? is that absolute $$ or ratio of CEO to worker?
That's just in absolute dollars.

I've forgotten the ratio of CEO to worker salary here in the US, but my muddled mind seems to recall it's grown from 40:1 to something like 400:1.

i recently heard the numbers (CharlieRose v Sen.Webb) ..and 400 sounded high.

so .... went and found the clip (thank gods for interwebnets more need for memory.

Webb said --"when I graduated college it was 20:1, now it's 400:1 ..and in Japan it's 10:1"
