Media Appearance: Kudlow & Company (5/30/07)

Its the regular appearance on Kudlow tonite: We will be covering Executive Pay, the correction in  Shanghai, today's reversal in the markets and new highs on the SPX, and the FOMC minutes.

On board are Joe Moglia of Ameritrade, major Bear Gary Shilling, and Wendell Perkins of Johnson Family of Funds.
You know my view on most of the items, except Executive Pay.

There are three problems that seem to dog most of the egregious CEO COmpensation cases: 1) Full Disclosure in advance; 2) Board of Directors with conflicts of interests; 3) Failure to represent the Shareholder's interests.

As long as the Board does its job, is conflict free, and the pay packages get disclosed in advance, the Shareholders should be protected.

When those elements are missing  -- when there are conflicts of interest, a failure to disclose, and/or a Board not protecting S/Hs -- that's you get the more abusive situations we have witnessed . . .

Executive pay does not bother me as much as golden parachutes. Any comments on the circumstances for which those are effective?
