I think a big part of this is a larger percent of companies have a global customer base. Software companies especially can scale near infinitely with the same number of workers/developers. Due to this the value of the company (which CEO compensation is typically tied to) goes up much higher than if the company was only available in a single country.

I live ~9 miles from yesterdays epicenter. I got the warning on the phone about the same time as my dogs came running into my office. Then a few seconds later felt the ground bounce up and down and the house creaked a bit for a couple seconds. Even as close as I was it was still pretty minor, but I can imagine it would be helpful if it was a larger earthquake.
