Abstract

This discussion provides several explanations for the evidence presented in Balachandran and Mohanram 2010 that are consistent with efficient contracting. I also show that—contrary to the suggestion of the title—CEOs do not benefit from value destroying growth in earnings. Finally, I argue that there is no conclusive evidence that corporate investments destroy value.
