Wages At the Top

Nov 1st 2007
From Economist.com

BERTIE AHERN, Ireland’s taoiseach (prime minister), has good reason to smile. He recently accepted his 26th pay rise in ten years, taking his annual salary to €310,000 ($446,000). He is now better rewarded for leading a country than most of his counterparts, including George Bush.

Nicolas Sarkozy’s pay increase this week of around 140% only bumps France’s president up to $346,000 a year.

Heading a small, rich country is the best bet. Earlier this year, Singapore’s prime minister was awarded a 26% rise to some $2.1m.
