    Link: Haruka Nishimatsu: Is He The Greatest CEO Ever? - I wish all bosses acted this way--they`d probably get more production out of their employees.

    I don`t think it`s "unfair" that CEOs make lots of money. They own big business and they worked hard to get there.

    That said, I think this guy is smart. He is cutting his salary and everyone else`s salary in order to keep his company alive. If he keeps his company alive, his children and family will inherit the airline, giving them a much brighter future than if he just ran the business into the ground embellishing as much as he could out of it. 90 grand a year still isn`t bad at all!! I`m surprised he takes the bus and eats in the cafeteria with that income. o_O

    @pui CEO`s don`t own businesses, they are an employee like everyone else, in a usually public company.

    I have no problem with people making a lot of money. The problem here is that huge corporations own D.C. and bend the rules in their favor, screwing over anyone else trying to enter or compete in the market.

    @pui-Just because they`re in a position of command doesn`t mean they deserve exorbitant salaries and excesses.

    Haruka Nishimatsu isn`t motivated by greed or a sense of self-worth, it would seem. He`s just trying to run his company as best as he is able too, and is willing to earn a reasonable salary for it, which is better for everyone involved. Every dollar that doesn`t end up in his pocket is going somewhere else in the company, to be utilized.

    @DSDavis008 That depends. A CEO can be an employee, but my fiance is CEO (and also a whole bunch of other titles, due to the strangeness of incorporating lol) of his own company, which he`s been building his whole life.

    @DrProfessor Even if he/she owns the company, either bought it or built it up himself/herself? It might be a dumb business decision to extract money at the expense of keeping the business alive, but the owner of a company should be able to do whatever they want with what they own.

    I`m not sure that this makes him the greatest CEO ever. Bottom line is whoever runs the most successful company is a great CEO. It has zero to do with perks or salary to be honest. I`m not sure who the top CEO is right now but I`d definitely put Steve Jobs ahead of this guy, and Jobs is kind of a douche.

    A great CEO is one who increases the bottom line. That`s why they were hired by the board.

    Japanese corporate and work ethic is much different than the rest of the world. I believe it`s the law in Japan that the CEO can not make more then ten times the lowest paid worker of a company.

    I believe a CEO should be paid what they are worth and that measurement of worth goes beyond the metric of just how much money the company made that year.

    I`m pretty sure, if I remember what I heard correctly, that Japanese business ethics are focused around what`s best for the whole company rather than any individuals involved.

    In other words, they`d rather have the company survive and keep making money into future generations rather than make a quick burst of cash and have it all come crashing down around the next group to take over.

    I`ve also heard that the Japanese style is changing with newer generations dealing with more foreign influences and competition. So who knows how long guys like this will last...

    @vegascartman- What does this have to do with socialism? Nothing, that`s what. Do you prefer American CEOs, who cut lower level jobs and compensation while increasing executive pay and benefits?

    well he is just so guess that is why the company is winning usually unjust is the ingredient or disaster and failure. that is just commonsense some one who does not know that is just ignorant and people will automatically look down upon him.
