Criminalizing executive compensation



The SEC's charges in the Brocade case start the criminal phase of the backdating so-called scandal. Since much of corporate America has been implicated in this practice, we may be looking at a significant ratcheting up of the practice of criminalizing agency costs -- we're now criminalizing executive compensation. Where might it end? I have some thoughts here and here.
