Art imitates life

In three steps.

1. The Indian government says no to demands from IIT faculty for a further (small) raise in salary. During the debate on this issue quite a few people point to the huge salaries in private sector firms. We just went through this debate during the last several weeks.

2. The government's new initiative is to ask private sector firms to rein in executive compensation. It started just a few days ago.

3. Scott Adams presents this Dilbert cartoon. Today.

    I'm not talking about odious here. I'm just pointing to some interesting parallels.
