Sources of Attitudes on Nonprofit Compensation: A Conversation with Paul Light - NPQ – Nonprofit Quarterly - Promoting an active and engaged democracy.
Sources of Attitudes on Nonprofit Compensation: A Conversation with Paul Light - NPQ – Nonprofit Quarterly - Promoting an active and engaged democracy.: Editors’ note: NPQ contributing editor Jon Pratt sat down with NYU’s Dr. Paul Light to talk about social attitudes about compensation in public service jobs. In his usual integrative style, Light provides an excellent overview of the frameworks Americans use when they think about executive pay. This follows a string of articles and commentaries on concepts of nonprofit compensation by Lester Salamon, Tom Pollack, and Rick Cohen, which continue to provide strategic guidance in the area. Light is the Paulette Goddard Professor at the Robert F. Wagner Graduate School of Public Service at New York University and an online columnist for the Washington Post. He is also author of, most recently, Driving Social Change: How to Solve the World’s Toughest Problems (John Wiley & Sons, Inc., 2011).
