          Abstract

          This paper explores how relying on ever-increasing levels of executive compensation like wages, bonuses, and stock options may have an adverse effect on managerial performance. Specifically, we argue that one-dimensional economic incentives (i) may crowd out existential, social, and ecological values that influence the manager’s commitment to ensure responsible business conduct (cf. Frey, 1997; Mitroff, 1998; Bouckaert, 2006) and (ii) have negative spillover effects that reduces the manager’s performance (cf. Ims and Zsolnai, 2009).
