高管薪酬有什么问题?

伦敦——现在正是世界各地上市公司一年一度的股东大会季(AGM),而且,和往年一样,高管的薪酬问题导致公司新闻从商业栏目转到了头版头条。企业不断公布令公众目瞪口呆的高管薪酬方案,令人震惊的不仅是企业最高和最低薪酬员工之间差距如此之大,而且更因为薪酬与企业业绩之间几乎没有任何关联。

尽管如此,协调一致的对抗行动已经展开,而且是由企业及其董事会可能真正需要关注的规模及影响力最大的投资人团体所主导。对冲基金、养老基金和主权财富基金声明他们正密切关注着最高管理层薪酬的变化,而且现在采取严肃改革措施的时机已经成熟。

价值超过8,700亿美元的挪威主权财富基金已经表示其正在关注薪酬结构。安本资产管理公司和皇家伦敦资产管理公司会同其他股东组织一道强烈反对英国石油公司提出的为CEO鲍伯·达德利在企业亏损创下纪录的一年增加20%的薪酬,它们同其他59%的投资者共同否决了这一薪酬包。虽然BP的投票结果不具约束力,但却向企业及其董事会发出了明确的信号。

    Empowering China’s New Miracle Workers

    China’s success in the next five years will depend largely on how well the government manages the tensions underlying its complex agenda. In particular, China’s leaders will need to balance a muscular Communist Party, setting standards and protecting the public interest, with an empowered market, driving the economy into the future.

    The Sovereignty that Really Matters

    The preference of some countries to isolate themselves within their borders is anachronistic and self-defeating, but it would be a serious mistake for others, fearing contagion, to respond by imposing strict isolation. Even in states that have succumbed to reductionist discourses, much of the population has not.

    Resurrecting Creditor Adjustment

    When the Bretton Woods Agreement was hashed out in 1944, it was agreed that countries with current-account deficits should be able to limit temporarily purchases of goods from countries running surpluses. In the ensuing 73 years, the so-called "scarce-currency clause" has been largely forgotten; but it may be time to bring it back.

    Trump’s Republican Collaborators

    Republican leaders have a choice: they can either continue to collaborate with President Donald Trump, thereby courting disaster, or they can renounce him, finally putting their country’s democracy ahead of loyalty to their party tribe. They are hardly the first politicians to face such a decision.

    How Money Could Unblock the Brexit Talks

    With talks on the UK's withdrawal from the EU stalled, negotiators should shift to the temporary “transition” Prime Minister Theresa May officially requested last month. Above all, the negotiators should focus immediately on the British budget contributions that will be required to make an orderly transition possible.

    Is Vladimir Putin Losing His Grip?

    In recent decades, as President Vladimir Putin has entrenched his authority, Russia has seemed to be moving backward socially and economically. But while the Kremlin knows that it must reverse this trajectory, genuine reform would be incompatible with the kleptocratic character of Putin’s regime.

    Rage Against the Elites

    • With the advantage of hindsight, four recent books bring to bear diverse perspectives on the West’s current populist moment. 
    • Taken together, they help us to understand what that moment is and how it arrived, while reminding us that history is contingent, not inevitable

    Don’t Bank on Bankruptcy for Banks

    As a part of their efforts to roll back the 2010 Dodd-Frank Act, congressional Republicans have approved a measure that would have courts, rather than regulators, oversee megabank bankruptcies. It is now up to the Trump administration to decide if it wants to set the stage for a repeat of the Lehman Brothers collapse in 2008.
