Focusing on the Short or Long term?

The Causes and Consequences of the Time Horizon of Management of Dutch Companies

Short-termism refers to the tendency of company management to take actions that maximize reported short-term earnings and stock prices at the expense of long-term company performance. It has received quite some attention lately, in the public as well as in the academic domain.

The debate in these domains focuses on understanding the causes and consequences of short-termism. Research on these causes and consequences is still in its infancy and is almost exclusively based on data from companies in Anglo-Saxon countries. Yet, analyzing the causes and consequences of managerial decision-making related to the
trade-off between short- and long-term outcomes may be equally important in different contexts. This certainly also holds for the Netherlands.
