Re: Michael Porter
Harvard Business School professor Michael Porter, who runs studies of U.S. competitiveness, is critical of executive compensation practices and criticizes companies for a widespread failure to invest in the American workforce. Nevertheless, he says, "it's not a good idea to declare that people who are successful are bad. The better question is: Do we have a fair system for getting that education and skill? Are people unfairly handicapped? Are we doing enough to open the gateways?"
