QUESTION 1. The following quotation appeared in the Fortune magazine “I have never asked to serve on a corporate board, never even hinted at wanting to be on one. And I have never asked to be on a compensation committee. I suspect that the reason I’ve been put on so many is that word gets around that I believe in paying people very, very well… I cannot sit and say to you what the right compensation number is. That’s the judgment call, the business judgment call. That’s what a board of directors does… What I know most of all is that when I see extraordinary effort and results out of a CEO, you can’t pay him enough.” Evaluate the comments made by this particular director. Make sure your responses are well organized and documented, using references/examples from any of the assigned readings on the topic for this class. Be well organized in your writing. Maximum pages: three pages, double-space, size 12 Grade: 15 QUESTION 2. Given the new economic and market realities prevailing since the 2008 great recession – including employment opportunities for yourself as a business executive – first list, and then explain in needed details the top four (4) Behavioral Finance lessons that you learned in this class that can be of value to you going forward. I emphasize going forward because my goal in this question is to see how you can apply the lessons learned in this course to make decisions that may face you at work now or in the future. This also means you must answer this question from the perspective of your job; your present job or a job that you envision you may have later on. Make sure you answer this question in light of the post-2008 economic and financial realities. Don’t be afraid to “take risk” in answering this question; it may pay off in both grading and your future experiences! 🙂 Maximum pages: three pages, double-space, size 12; reference page(s) does not count in the maximum page limit.
