 Influence of Spanish owned Businesses on the Philippines
Contrary to Spanish bureaucrats, the American government was a reliable one with officials fulfilling better their promises and doing a less arbitrary task; the main problem with taxes, for instance, was not the amount but the employees that spent the money after it was received.
Even more, the lay Spanish citizens and their business had suffered the same as the rest of the society from the consequences of irresponsibility and rest of the Filipino society during the Spanish regime due partly to the disproportionate rule of the church in the islands.
Spanish companies not only benefited from that, same as the rest of business in the archipelago, but their performance was relatively good under the new circumstances.

In this paper we present empirical evidence on the relationship between board remuneration of a sample of large Spanish companies and a set of explanatory variables such as performance and size of the company.
Company size is also related to board remuneration, and affects the pay-performance relationship, although is not relevant when we use an elasticity approach.
Finally, the governance structure of companies is relevant when explaining the power of the compensation-performance relationship, and differences between the impact of ownership concentration and firm leverage on this relationship are found.
