I really think that a CEO's pay should be directly connected to growth in income of the firm.

That, and other metrics such as share price or profit, typically encourage short-term gains over longer term growth & stability.

Something like X years profit/income/etc could be a better metric as it would make short term fudges less rewarding.

But CEOs won't go for it as they won't get their quick buck/pound.
