This contribution presents two alternative frameworks for analyzing the issue of executive compensation. It seeks to analyze recent developments in executive compensation and corporate governance in an international setting. It argues that one of the two approaches is more appropriate for explaining some recent corporate behavior and practice in executive pay. Two European case studies provide evidence in support of the managerial power model of executive compensation.
