They defied the gods and the gods struck them down.- With their plush offices, executive jets and median salaries of $ 1.6 million, even chief executive officers who haven-t been hauled off in handcuffs are now held in lower esteem than politicians. The former cultural heroes are blamed for putting pensions at risk and enriching themselves at investors- expense. Will new rules make CEO-s truly accountable and help them regain their prestige? What does it take to become a good CEO? We ask a business ethicist, leaders from the business and nonprofit world, and the CEO of a management consulting firm.
