|Executive Compensation in America: Optimal Contracting or Extraction of Rents?|
National Bureau of Economic Research [NBER]
Dec. 21, 2001
Excerpt: Under the alternative rent extraction view that we examine, the board does not operate at arm's length; rather, executives have power to influence their own compensation, and they use their power to extract rents. As a result, executives are paid more than is optimal for shareholders and, to camouflage the extraction of rents, executive compensation might be structured sub-optimally.
