  1. Government of developed and developing countries should stop the industries for not giving bonuses to top executives for coming one or two years, or they should cut it down upto 80%. As this is the only way to increase the economic funding of any nation. In addition, a ban should be oversized on severance payments for executives. If the industries are not co-operating or those who are not in this favour then the government should legislate to limit executive pay. -Sandy Chan
