Compensation and Leverage Part I

Is compensation correlated with risk taking? Can executive compensation packages be tied to risk measures? Professor Jose Scheinkman of Princeton University, Professors Bruce Kogut and Patrick Bolton of Columbia Business School and Brandon Rees of the Office of Investment American Federation of Labor and the Congress of Industrial Organizations, explore this issue with Professor John Coffee of Columbia Law School.

This panel was part of "Governance, Executive Compensation and Excessive Risk in the Financial Services Industry," a conference co-hosted by Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung and the Sanford C. Bernstein & Co. Center for Leadership and Ethics at Columbia Business School.
