I think compensation envy is what has improperly driven up executive salaries, as well as sports contracts for athletes earning way beyond the real value of their talents. These costs just get passed on to the consumer. Does a film get its creativity trimmed in order to ensure there is cash to cover Iger's salary? Does a scene get cut from an attraction because the budget is restricted? Is the money that would have funded the successful LucasArts being redirected to cover bonuses? The bottom line question is do I get more value giving that money to Iger or putting it to work elsewhere in the company?Fuskie Who actually did vote in favor on the executive compensation referendum because I think Iger has successfully navigated the company though the recession and aggressively positioned it for a strong future, but as a general rule, I don't think most CEOs are worth what they are paid and I wouldn't mind seeing Iger make less and more spent on brand building and generating consumer revenue?..
