In today's column (can't seem to find it online yet. UPDATE it is now here) Polly Toynbee writes:
Meanwhile the annual Rich List this week will show runaway wealth at the very top jumping up another 18.4%. (Maybe that's modest for self-made stars and private entrepreneurs, when the real scandal is CEOs of top public companies paying themselves 30% more this year.)
The 18.4% increase in "runaway" wealth comes from the Sunday Times Rich List, and represents £63bn (source). The 30% increase for CEOs is actually FTSE-100 CEOs, and represents an average increase of about £0.9m each (source), that is £90m total.
Sorry, but which one is the real scandal?
