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 ..no 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"
