High inegality in pay will eventually kill the economy, by demotivating workers. After all, enterprises prosper not only because of the “talent” of big bosses, but perhaps more because of the commitment of their workers.
The Swiss democratic system with their rights for referendum by the population at large has shown the way to solve the problem: a referendum has recently been accepted by more than 3/4 of the population to cap the salary of executives by law, and give the right and obligation for shareholders to watch excesses in these salaries.
