Reviews This is a thoughtful, persuasive and well-written book. It is a timely and powerful contribution to the debate about the corrosive effects of the banking bonus culture. I commend Mr Bolchover s work to anyone who cares about the future of capitalism. - Luke Johnson, Chairman Channel 4; Columnist Financial Times; Entrepreneur. There is, in my view, no better writer on the modern workplace than David Bolchover. With this book he has done it again. He has asked one of the questions that really matter. And the answer? Well, read it for yourself .. -Daniel Finkelstein, The Times Synopsis Who deserves what they earn? Seldom has this question been more relevant than now, as senior executives grab outrageous salaries while the companies they manage go bankrupt, and British parliamentarians fiddle their expenses. From jargon-spouting consultants to the financial whiz kids undertaking risky deals, oversized pay packets are justified on the flimsiest of grounds that the recipients possess extraordinary talent without which no company or organisation could prosper. But the evidence suggests otherwise. This book explodes the myth of talent, and shows how the term has been deliberately misused and abused. Pay Check aims to win capitalism back for those who actually take the risks, and expose those who merely snatch the rewards.
