ABSTRACT
There appear to be large differences in the compensation of American and Japanese executives. Such statements suffer from a number of shortcomings, one of which is that compensation takes different forms in the U.S. and Japan. As a result, a classic error of comparing apples and oranges occurs. We use a broad definition of compensation and some preliminary data and find that the large differences may disappear when adjusted for the value of insider information.
