The S&P 500's '100 most overpaid CEOs'


A new report has compiled the "100 most overpaid CEOs" in the S&P 500 and "examines the forces behind the trend of ever-increasing CEO pay." 

The report was released late last week by the corporate responsibility nonprofit As You Sow.

It states that "CEO pay grew an astounding 937% over the past 35 years" and that "the explosion in executive compensation greatly outpaces growth in the stock market and economic productivity."

New Mayor de Blasio: the best of 'spiritual but not religious'


On New Year's Day, I joined hundreds of shivering New Yorkers and others in front of City Hall for the inauguration of Bill de Blasio as mayor of New York City. I traveled to New York with Dolly Pomerleau of the Quixote Center.

We both know Bill personally and worked with him in the late 1980s to end the Reagan wars in Central America. He started his work for economic justice and peace at the Quixote Center, so we were proud to hear his clear message of economic justice in his inaugural address as the new mayor.
