I just read somewhere that CEO pay in the U.S. of A. is now 400+ times that of the average company employee, up from a meager 40X as recently as 1980. But that may pale by comparison with yesterday's A-Rod stats, courtesy USA Today. Mr Rodriguez pulls in: $16,492.58 per inning; $37,145.65 per at bat; and $276,699.03 per Yankee win. Wow!
I append no moral or economic commentary to all this, just offer it for your amusement-edification.
