Top Performers, Top Pay

There's a concept, paying presidents and prime ministers based on the performance of various economic metrics. Of course Ireland's pay is fixed, it's just coincidence the best performing country is paying their chief the most.

I'm surprised the US isn't at the top of the list just because its total GDP is so much higher than the other countries'. (Assuming is the chart isn't adjusted for GDP in some way I can't see).

I would have thought that being President of the US would be the highest paying political gig on earth.
