Links between Directors and Executive Compensation
Yet another study of interlocking directorates, this time assessing whether compensation is correlated with connectedness across company boards.

CEOs with such "back door links" (no comment) were paid an average of $454K-$612K more than those without.
Damn. Gotta get my schmooze on.
