Abstract:     
Empirical studies estimating the impact of firm performance on executive pay have primarily concentrated on the short-run response. In this study, we present estimates of the complete dynamic response of CEO pay to firm performance. We find that 1) the cumulative response of pay to firm performance is roughly ten times that of the contemporaneous response, 2) a one-time innovation in firm performance typically raises pay over the next four to five years, and 3) compensation arrangements have shifted toward greater performance sensitivity and longer-term pay arrangements over the four decades studied.
