The general public in the developed world, says new survey data from 2012 highlighted last week in the Harvard Business Review, would like to see a much smaller gap between CEO and worker wages. The ideal gap? No public in any of the 16 major nations surveyed wants to see CEOs making over nine times what workers receive. The U.S. public puts the ideal gap at 6.7 times. America’s actual gap in 2012: 354 times.
