I’ve made several comments about executive pay on The Daily BULL, a favorite subject of our fine friends inside the beltway. As an aside, I’m reminded today that, in return, we need to shed more light on the extraordinary, self-indulgent fringe benefits enjoyed by members of Congress. Stay tuned for more on their largess later . . . .

Frank, which sketches out several reasons why government limitations on executive pay make no sense, starting with the intrinsic value of pay for performance standards.
