The call will discuss the best places to look for executive compensation data and CEO contracts, how and when executive pay rose so high, the role of shareholders in curbing executive compensation, why past government efforts to curb executive pay failed, and how executive compensation negotiations are being changes by the Obama administration clampdown.
Also on the call will be Nell Minow, editor and co-founder of The Corporate Library; Paul Dorf, managing director of Compensation Resources; and Michelle Leder, editor and founder of footnoted.org.
