A response to: Setting Salaries

Do we have an understanding of what these high salaries for top executive levels have on the individual, on corporations, and on society in general? There seem to be signs that tell us that by using higher salaries and bigger bonuses to attract individuals to these executive positions we are encouraging a culture of materialism and of greed that then permeates into the whole system and begins to produce very negative results and that the system will attract to these positions individuals who are materialistic and greedy and who do not care about the people who they are supposed to be serving.

Is this a naive view, or is there a chance that our society could produce capable individuals to serve at those levels who are looking for something else, who will see themselves as stewards, as ministers in service of the people and will find satisfaction from that?
