Evan Davis
This week on the Bottom Line, Evan Davis and his guests ask whether ballooning boardroom pay is bad for business.
Research shows the average lead executive of a FTSE100 company makes £2.9 million a year. This week our guests on The Bottom Line discuss whether that's too much - and their answers may surprise you.

Also: one is a vibrant democracy with a well-educated population where English is the language of business. The other is a highly efficient one-party state starting to flex its strength on the global state. But which country is a better model of development - India or China?
 
Evan's guests this week are:

Keith Clarke
Chief Executive of engineering firm WS Atkins Plc

Julian Granville

Managing Director of the Boden Catalogue

Emma Howard-Boyd

Head of Socially Responsible Investment, Jupiter Asset Management
About the programme
 
The Bottom Line cuts through the confusion of modern life to find out what's really important to consumers and businesses: the gimmicks, the people, the products - and the relationships.
