"Attitude" looms large in any discussion of executive compensation. Yet here is a book that restricts its remit to what can actually be discovered about the corporate and contractual facts, figures, and rationales that determine how much a company director earns in an increasingly complex system of executive remuneration that seems to be taking root worldwide. In a remarkably insightful collection of articles, legal scholars from ten different countries address the state of the art of executive service contracts in twelve different jurisdictions, as diverse as (on the one hand) the European Union, its central Member States and the United States, and (on the other) Iceland and Romania. Their analysis penetrates beyond the often vague regulatory framework to actual survey figures, consultants reports, and even data from a number of specific firms.--Publisher's description.
