The article discusses British economist Will Hutton's views regarding fairness and transparency when it comes to fair pay in the public sector. Hutton was asked by the British government to investigate the idea of capping senior executive public sector pay at 20 times the lowest paid person in any public body. He recommends that a proportion of executives' base pay be earned back if performance objectives are met. Hutton also proposes publishing the pay, job details and performance criteria of all board-level executives.
