Hillary Clinton wants to take on "quarterly capitalism" — here's what that means

2015-07-24 Vox and others

Vox writes about a speech by Hillary Clinton at NYU's Stern Business School: "Hillary Clinton plans to finger what she considers a key impediment to long-term economic growth: 'quarterly capitalism'." In this context research by Alexander Ljungqvist, NYU and affiliated to IFN, is mentioned: "They found that 'compared to private firms, public firms invest substantially less and are less responsive to changes in investment opportunities" and that this happens "especially in industries in which stock prices are most sensitive to earnings news'."
