Corporate Governance: The Race to the Bottom
The Director Compensation Project: A Race to the Bottom Exclusive
By J Robert Brown Jr.
One of the unique things about The Race to the Bottom is that it is partnership between students and faculty. Students write and edit posts. An editor in chief ensures effective and smooth operation of the Blog.
Every year, students write posts that highlight the compensation paid to directors. The information has only recently become available. The SEC amended the compensation disclosure requirements in 2007 and for the first time required a table that showed total compensation paid to directors. The amounts have sometimes been extraordinary, approaching if not surpassing $1 million a year.
The practice has raised some concern. Shareholders have submitted proposals under Rule 14a-8 seeking the right to say on director pay.
With all of that in mind, we turn to the director compensation posts.
