Some Incentive Articles...

A student asked me to recommend some articles on compensation systems and incentives, so I figured I would also put the list here. Note here that I'm not specifically addressing the issue of CEO compensation, but I can provide some resources for that as well if asked. Most of these articles should be available online through the HOLLIS catalog.
