Die Gier der Manager

US-Firmen zahlen Managern mehr als sie Steuern zahlen

Gier ist eigentlich das falsche Wort in diesem Zusammenhang. Es ist eher ein systemisches Versagen der Wirtschafts- und Steuerpolitik. Forbes berichtet über eine Studie des „Institute for Policy Studies“. Steuererleichterungen der Bush – Regierung waren eine der Ursachen für diese Entwicklungen

Die Autoren fassen zusammen:

  • Of last year’s 100 highest-paid U.S. corporate chief executives, 25 took home more in CEO pay than their companies paid in federal income taxes. Seven firms made the list in both 2011 and 2010.
  • The CEOs of these 25 firms received $20.6 million in average total compensation last year. That’s a 24 percent increase over the average for last year’s list of 2010’s tax dodging executives.
  • The four most direct tax subsidies for excessive executive pay cost taxpayers an estimated $14.4 billion per year—$46 for every American man, woman, and child. That amount could also cover the annual cost of hiring 211,732 elementary-school teachers or creating 241,593 clean-energy jobs.
  • CEOs have benefited enormously from the Bush tax cuts for upper-income taxpayers. Last year, 57 CEOs saved more than $1 million on their personal income tax bills, thanks to these Bush-era cuts.
