"...its inherantly selfish and greedy..."
That's correct. That's why it works. It operates WITH the nature of humans.
But, life isn't a cartoon. There is a limit.

"I dont see how limiting executive pay means a company will hire fewer people"
In order to have the exec direct compensation ceiling raise, the lowest paid must also have a raise. In order to keep the margin near the same balance, the incentive is to keep fewer lower paid operators while trying to have the remaining operators produce more to make up for the lost operators.

"...I think investment comes from profitability..."
Investment comes from confidence. Continued investment comes from profitability.

correct me if I'm wrong but they also don't have people mooching off the system and doing half-ass work.

Lets kick everyone out that doesn't have a job and is able to get one! Go Switzerland!

Maybe they will have intelligent honest people in control of there business's. who's to say what will happen. If it doesn't work whats the worst thing that could happen they repeal the law?

The world may revolve around the U.S. but it is a world wide problem- not only the stupid states!!

You're right soundman. Other countries have their share of left-wing $#!+-for-brains socialist f**tards, too.

All the best CEOs will just move out of the country. That will bring the average wage down.

It's not about fairness; it's about punishment.

Because people are too scared to quit. Companies that earn that level of inequity are unable to survive a mass exodus.

I think the people attempting to implement this understand capitalism perfectly well, that its inherantly selfish and greedy.
I dont see how limiting executive pay means a company will hire fewer people, in fact if anything it will have more money to hire more people on a lower wage.
Who cares about 'celebrity executives' maybe companies will get better quality real executives instead of wasting money on 'celebrity' and I think investment comes from profitability.
And there is equal worth in all aspects of a company without the workforce a company is an empty shell with executives twiddling their thumbs round the board room.

The people who composed and those who are applauding this don't truly understand capitalism.
-They've created an incentive to hire fewer people.
-They've created an incentive for celebrity executives to move out of the country (companies actually need those guys to draw investors.)
-They've implied there is a directly related proportion of the value in [ideas and competence in guidance] to [the competence involved in loading, pushing start and unloading a machine].

Gerry and mcgovern, this has been said so many many times it is no longer funny that peeps still think that. This is true for people comming from eastern european countries to better paying countries, and it is true for thirld world countries in the same way, but to often it has been shown to not really be true within the western world itself. There is more to gratification out of a job then mere money.

Usually I don't write in to specifically comment on another commentator, but Cajun247 are you not all there? your comment is so off the mark that I have to wonder. If you are, cool, I hope that you can receive the support you need to live a full life.

This idea is by the Swiss is great. Capitalism is build in stealing a bit of the value added of labour, to steal it all is wrong and self-defeating. this law should be in all countries

Legit problem, wrong solution.

A start would be looking at ridiculous govt regulations like:
-Building permits
-Occupational licensing
-Business subsidies

Maybe then they wouldn't get away with this crap.

Actually, it stated that executives should not be payed more than 12 times the amount of their lowest payed employee.

Fact: If you limit how much a person or corp. can make they will pack up and leave to a place that doesn't.

On the other hand, limit their pay and all the talented people will leave for countries where they can earn more.
