Bo to that the two empiric 1 rel ti no ere of an entirely 
different kind. One hot rrainer the top salary in 
various c.nspanies. The other determines the salary 
'jQZ’rirGroouV.ng to the frequency with whi'oh'it i3 paid in 
a certain c n. any ( the r ore nat r 1 ray of putting it 
would be IT - m* C" 5

Simons th ory follows the pattern of the usual Pareto 
cxt>lan tion • the two exponential distributions - 
but it is unsatisfactory because, like Roys omplanaii n of 
1 .normal distributi n , it does not contain the tire ole nnt.

Incidentally the oiyo distributi. n of oonpanlos in already 
pareto distributed, therefore the top sal -:ry would bo do

The results of -imon imply that th e same parameter In b/ In n 
occurs in both relations and the fact that the parameter is 
err irlcdlly the same servos him as confirr ation. 
Ho has inplioitly assumed tha the -ammeter is the same for

of S, the sise distributi n wo ov hi to get the frequency ;f
