Dennis, I think some of the CEOs are conscious of the fact that when they lay off or outsource 10,000 jobs they get a $10M bonus.  Direct consequence of their decision.  :)

Very simple, yet very accurate. In psych terms, there are both positive and negative reinforcement pressures on executives. One may get a bonus for increased "productivity" (dollars profit per man-hour, not total work produced), others with less stellar financials may simply be faced with the choice of his/her job vs the jobs of lower-level employees.
