Take Back Your Financial Future

Interview with Dr. Alfred Rappaport, author of Saving Capitalism from Short-Termism.

Dr. Alfred Rappaport coined the term “shareholder value” and wrote the groundbreaking article, 10 Ways to Create Shareholder Value, which gave a memorable platform for his thesis that sacrificing future growth to meet quarterly earnings benchmarks is the road to corporate and investment ruin. Sure enough, a global financial crisis occurred — and Rappaport argues that the corporate and investment community cultures of short-termism are to blame.

Triggered by managerial incentives we are encouraged to deliver the short-term numbers instead of focusing on building greater long-term value.  Join Zack Miller on Tradestreaming Radio as he interviews Al Rappaport on breaking out of short-term investing to build greater value.

Alfred Rappaport is the Leonard Spacek Professor Emeritus at Northwestern University’s J.L. Kellogg Graduate School of Management. He is the author of the pioneering book Creating Shareholder Value and coauthor of Expectations Investing. Rappaport has also been a guest columnist for The Wall Street Journal ,The New York Times Fortune and BusinessWeek.
