Voices of Dissent: Are Chief Executives Overpaid?

Voices of Dissent: Are Chief Executives Overpaid?

The UK's top executive pay has soared from 40 times that of the average worker in the late 1990s, to over 150 times today. It's becoming increasingly difficult to claim that this economic model works for everyone. Little progress has been made in closing the yawning gap between rich and poor, and our economy is much less equal than that of other advanced European nations.

Deborah Hargreaves is a Trustee and Founding Director of the High Pay Centre, an independent non-party think tank established to monitor pay at the top of the income distribution and set out a road map towards better business and economic success. She'll talk about why our high-pay culture is so damaging and what can be done about it.
