comment Why do business analysts and project managers get higher salaries than programmers?
Note that the market is not symmetric. An employer have a choice of thousands of programmers. A programmer have a choice of just several employers. The losses of an employer due to one programmer are negligible in comparison with the total capitalization or revenue of a company. The losses of a programmer are enormous - it usually takes several month to change a job, so it is like percent or several percents of the only resource of the programmer - his lifetime. You see that the managers have more power here since they are in a position to make their replacement more expensive.
