Report fingers worst performing, but highest paid CEOs

Study compares pay and performance of 241 CEOs over 20 years

For 20 years, nearly 40 percent of the country’s top paid CEOs have been doing a crummy job—at least, that’s what one recently released report suggests.

The “Executive Excess 2013: Bailed Out, Booted, Busted,” conducted by left-wing think-tank Institute for Policy Studies (with the help of Greenpeace and the AFL-CIO), studied 241 well-paid CEOs who have ranked in the top 25 with regard to compensation for the past 20 years and compared their pay with their performance.
