Barton, Bailey, and Zoffer (2016)

Barton, Dominic, Jonathan Bailey, and Joshua Zoffer.  “Rising to the challenge of short-termism.”  FCLTGlobal, 2016.

From ‘Evidence and findings’ portion of the paper:

"In late 2015 and early 2016, McKinsey & Company surveyed over 1,000 McKinsey Quarterly panelists on their perceptions of corporate short-termism and how it has evolved over time. The respondents represent over 1,000 C-level executives and board members from across the world, covering a full range of industries and functions. Many of the questions were a repeat of those asked in a 2013 survey of the same panel.

""Overall, the survey has two critical implications for the battle against short-termism: first, that short- termism has shown no signs of abating and, second, that its causes are manifold and hard for individual companies and executives to combat alone.
