The paper discusses how free enterprise affects the overall business environment and specifically as it determines, or should determine, compensation strategies of organizations. Free enterprise is first examined as it relates to North America and to companies and corporations. This is followed by an in-depth analysis of organizational compensations strategies within the framework of free enterprise. The paper's conclusion is that executive level compensation strategies have been separated from free enterprise fundamentals and that this has led to corporate abuses of power.

From the Paper:

"This paper examines the role that the general economic theory, as contained in the concept of free enterprise (FE), plays in contemporary organizational compensation strategies. The question posed here asks if the concept of free enterprise has been completely discarded in organizational compensation strategies as managed through human resource departments and corporate strategy making bodies. The hypothesis is that while most employees are compensated based on what the FE market will support, most executive level compensation strategies are no longer dependent on the FE to determine appropriate levels."
