I have a feeling Jesus might have a few things to say about the compensation of top executives today. Like maybe:

“Again I tell you, it is easier for a camel to go through a needle’s eye, than for a rich man to enter into the Kingdom of God.” — Matthew 19:24

Barclays CEO John Varley has a slightly different take on the matter:

“The injunction of Jesus to love others as ourselves is an endorsement of self-interest. We have to tolerate the inequality as a way to achieving greater prosperity and opportunity for all.”

You can read some more of Varley’s thoughts here.
