The historical trajectory in executive pay is based on Carola Frydman and Raven Sakes, “Historical Trends in Executive Compensation, 1936-2005,” (2007). The ratio of CEO to worker compensation is based on the EPI graph, “More Compensation Heading to the Very Top,” The State of Working America (2011).
