Oracle's Ellison earns $3 a second

  • The CEO of Oracle, dashing Larry Ellison, earned $96.4 million last year and it’s hard to figure out how he can make ends meet.

    That’s $11,004 an hour, or if you prefer it, $183.4 a minute, and $3.05 a second.

    The figures, compiled by the Wall Street Journal, show Ellison is way ahead of the corporate CEO pack.  Apple’s Tim Cook only earned a paltry $4.2 million, while Paul Otellini, the ex-CEO who left Intel yesterday, raked in $18.3 million. This makes Tim Cook something of a pauper in the CEO stakes.

    Meg Whitman, at HP, earned a respectable $15.1 million, but Rupert Murdoch at News Corp, trousered $22 million. Virginia Rometty, at IBM, only managed to make $14.7 million.

    The figures include stock awards.
