When I was young my dad would say
Come on son let's go out and play
No matter how hard I try
No matter how many tears I cry
No matter how many years go by
I still can't say goodbye

."... the rise of computers in the 1970s made life riskier for the large industrial corporation. The result has been more entry by smaller firms, more new product competition, and compelling vitality for the U. S. economy. The cost has been that life at the top within the large corporation has become tougher: riskier, faster, busier. Corporate hierarchies have flattened, and CEOs spend more time with their division heads and perhaps less time contemplating the long view.
Corporate executives are being treated as if their decisions mattered much more to corporate profitability and are being held accountable accordingly. The talent and effort required to successfully run a corporation may well have risen substantially. In such circumstances, it would be surprising if corporate salaries were not rising to compensate for the heightened demands and shortened careers.
All this implies greater conflict in the relationships among shareholders, boards of directors, and top corporate officers. Recent episodes of corporate wrongdoing may be a symptom of uneven progress toward new institutional structures."
