ABSTRACT
The article expresses the view that the pay gap between chief executive officers (CEOs) in the U.S. and abroad is narrowing, and explains why this is so. The author believes that board compensation committees in the U.S. are giving greater consideration to what is both affordable and justifiable in terms of CEO pay. He also says foreign firms are finding themselves having to pay more for CEOs with international experience.
