They also propose a counterfactual exercise to project what annual income for CEOs would have been in different performance scenarios for their firm and present their estimates of annual income and its sensitivity to performance for the period from 1993 to 2012, with a particular focus on the financial industry since the 2007-2008 financial crisis.
