ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the issue of paying compensation to those chief executive officers (CEOs) who fail to perform their duties in the U.S. It infers that CEO should not be well compensated if they would not take the risk and they should go away without any added compensation when they fail to perform. Boards need to put their CEOs at risk, without contracts, and offer them significant incentives for long-term performance to correct CEO compensation and restore the trust in corporate leaders.
