Does it Take a Sociopath to Run A Major Corporation?

    

Duncan Black, AKAAtrios, or Eschaton, writes, refers to an article by Thom Hartmann written in July 2009,
"Thom Hartman on executive pay. It's from 2009, but in light of the WellPoint news of canceling a woman's health insurance upon receiving a diagnosis of breast cancer,it seems quite timely. Imagine, they have meetings where this kind of abomination is discussed, they do studies of how much money will be saved with graphs, power point presentations and everything. Only a sociopath could then go home and sleep at night."
Here's the articleProfiling CEOs and Their Sociopathic Paychecks
So, the question is, are the CEO's of the biggest corporations sociopaths?

I'm not talking about entrepreneurs who found companies that get big. I'm talking about the MBAs who are hired to run the biggest companies.


Yes. It takes a sociopath to run a megacorporation
No. CEOs are not pathological.
Not Sure.
