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:
Chief Executive of engineering firm WS Atkins Plc
Managing Director of the Boden Catalogue
Head of Socially Responsible Investment, Jupiter Asset Management
