[P]oliticians are, by their very nature, too sympathetic to managers.
This is not simply because they come from the same social class. Nor is it because MPs are bought off by the rich. It’s also because of a selection effect.
The sort of people who want to enter politics - as MPs, advisors or even reporters - are generally those who think that society and the state can be managed for the better. They are, therefore, predisposed to believe that management is, or can be, a socially useful activity, which means they are biased to think that chief executives, on average, should earn a lot.
