Corporate short-termism has significant consequences for the financial markets and the greater macroeconomy. By prioritizing short-term performance, corporate management teams are sacrificing long-term sustainability and profitability. This can be very detrimental to those looking to invest in the stock market. In the first interview on the Common Cents Finance Podcast, guest Dr. Amanda Page-Hoongrajok was able to outline this in great detail, while also touching on a number of other subjects.
