This project will analyze the components of CEO compensation contracts and try to explain their differences, and how such differences might lead to some firms being more successful than others. In particular, I am interested in linking the variation in contracts to the past legal infringement cases. The contracts and these cases are not readily available and might need to be extracted from the web.
