Nov. 6: An Agenda to End Short-Termism

The Roosevelt Institute joined Fellows Mike Konczal and J.W. Mason, with keynote speaker Senator Tammy Baldwin and moderator Jim Tankersley of The Washington Post, at the National Press Club as we release two papers on corporate short–termism. Opening remarks were given by Senator Baldwin, followed by a panel with Cornell University’s Lynn Stout and the AFL-CIO’s Heather Slavkin.

Rising shareholder payouts and declining investment have touched off widespread concern and debate about the corporate focus on short-term profits over long-term growth. In this set of papers, Mike Konczal proposed a broad policy agenda for curbing shorttermism and J.W. Mason presented new research showing the depth of the problem and addressing common critiques.
