Who Should Manage CEO Compensation?

On Dec 17, 2013, the Huffington Post (Canada) reported: "In the wake of a new study detailing soaring CEO compensation, the corporations whose executives pocketed the highest annual earnings appear reluctant to discuss a trend that critics say has gotten out of hand." (Rachel Mendleson: "CEO Compensation Canada Jumps 27 Percent", Huffington Post).
In addition, a Canadian newspaper, The Globe and Mail asked in a recent article: "Is CEO compensation fair or flawed?" See Globe and Mail article.
Apparently, some people think government should implement a policy to control the increasing wage gap. Opponents believe the high and increasing CEO wages contribute to the increasing costs of housing beyond what the average wage earner can afford. Do you think this is an issue?
In your view, who should manage CEO compensation in an organization (i.e. Board, Government, Shareholders, etc.?).
