9780955877148: Pay Check: Are Top Earners Really Worth It? (Updated Edition)

Even amid the enduring financial crisis, sky-high salaries for top executives and bankers persist, further inflaming public anger. But nothing will change, argues David Bolchover, until we confront the root cause - a self-serving "talent myth" that justifies high pay on the ground that the recipients possess extraordinary abilities without which no company could hope to prosper. These claims are not only unfounded; they are also an abuse of free-market capitalism. Pay Check aims to win the system back for those who actually take the risks, and expose those who merely snatch the rewards.

About the Author:

David Bolchover has written extensively for The Times, The Telegraph, The Sunday Times, The Financial Times and other publications about management and business. He is the author of two previous business books, The 90-Minute Manager and The Living Dead.

Review:

"A thoughtful, persuasive and well-written book...a timely and powerful contribution to the debate about the corrosive effectives of the banking bonus culture. I commend Bolchover's work to anyone who cares about the future of capitalism." - Luke Johnson, Financial Times columnist and entrepreneur

"There is, in my view, no better writer on the modern workplace than David Bolchover. With this book, he has done it again." - Daniel Finkelstein, Executive Editor, The Times

"A bold and impassioned book, rich in wry humour, thoughtfully argued throughout...highly persuasive...the starting-point for a worthy and necessary discussion about the nature of talent." - The Economist

"A great little book" - Merryn Somerset Webb, Editor-in-chief, MoneyWeek

"The solution (to excessive pay) lies in an excellent new book by business writer David Bolchover called Pay Check." - GQ Magazine
