Pay committees invariably set awards by looking at what their equivalents in other FTSE companies or firms in the same sector are paying. The higher they ratchet up the pay-outs at the company where they sit as independent directors, the more likely it is that they, too, will hit the jackpot in their main job. Any consultant recommending a pay cut would be unlikely to last long, so no one has any incentive to advocate restraint. Pay in the UK is set using data from around the world, mostly the U. By using these transatlantic comparisons, British bosses can argue they are underpaid and must be handed more if they are not to be poached.
The reality, of course, is that it is only too rare that the boss of a UK firm makes it to the top of a U. This so-called global market is something of a fiction. Another wheeze the big firms have developed is to put out reports on corporate pay and behaviour, which are screeds of meaningless jargon.

When the shareholders of Barclays file into the Royal Festival Hall today for the bank's annual meeting, they will be heading for a showdown with chief executive Bob Diamond that could prove a watershed for boardroom pay. Within the world of chief executives, there does appear to be a slowly growing realisation that the gulf between rewards in the boardroom and pay elsewhere needs to be bridged. The bandwagon that saw directors in FTSE companies achieve a 45pc pay rise in and possibly even more in — a year in which the economy barely grew — needs to be addressed urgently.
He accepted a pay freeze in and , recognising the hardships of those losing their jobs in his own company and the strains on ordinary households. So who will tackle these corporate behemoths? Director- general of the Institute of Directors, Simon Walker, a former Downing Street adviser, is a powerful voice advocating change. It believes the pay of corporate chiefs should receive the support of 75 per cent of shareholders before approval.
Thus far, much of the anti-fat-cat venom has been directed at bankers, whose mistakes led to the biggest fall in household income since the Twenties. But chief executives in other industries, from retail to mining, have also been paid sums totally divorced from the rest of society. The clubby atmosphere in the boardroom and the supine attitude of big shareholders have allowed a culture of sheer avarice to flourish.
It has spawned the most cosseted and grasping generation of bosses ever seen in this country — and it is time for shareholders to call a halt.
