You’ve heard the criticism. Too many American corporate managers are addicted to “short-termism.” They postpone investments and other costs, sacrificing future performance for present profitability.

Ahora, un nuevo estudio afirma que esto es cierto.
El estudio es interesante—pero sea escéptico; tiene algunos puntos flacos evidentes.
