Shareholders at major companies like Deutsche Bank and BP have rebelled against the pay packets of top managers. In France, the remuneration plan of car manufacturer Renault's CEO has sparked particular anger - so much so that French lawmakers are now considering action.
Also on this programme:
- Analysts and investors are debating when and how the Federal Reserve will raise interest rates. They fret as the Fed mulls the next step for the world's biggest economy.
