ABSTRACT
The article presents information on a survey, according to which corporate chief executive officers (CEOs) in the U.S. are paid much more salaries as compared to those in Europe. It is mentioned that the 20 highest-paid U.S. corporate CEOs each made an average $36.4 million in 2006 as salary, bonus, and stock options, which is nearly three times the $12.4 million earned by their European counterparts.
