Compensation Practices & Incentives
Re: Mihir Desai
The competitiveness of the U.S. economy is connected fundamentally to the productivity of American workers. That productivity hinges on the allocation of all kinds of capital: financial capital, real capital, and human capital, because workers are most productive with the appropriate allocation of capital. That led me to question how those allocation processes are working and the incentives facing managers and investors.
