Why Long-Term Thinking Is Your Best Short-Term Strategy

The lifespans of companies are growing shorter each day. Why do some companies thrive and grow, while others fail? Inspired by the CEO Academy, the annual off-the-record gathering of chief executive officers organized by the authors, Go Long reveals how some of the world’s most prominent business leaders resisted short-term pressures to successfully manage their organizations for the long term, and in turn, aim to create more jobs, more satisfied customers, and more shareholder wealth. In Go Long, authors Dennis Carey, Brian Dumaine, Michael Useem, and Rodney Zemmel take you behind-the-scenes to witness the business decisions that are enabling leading organizations to outsmart and outlast the competition. Why did CEO Larry Merlo allow CVS to take a $2 billion hit—on purpose? How did CEO Alan Mulally maneuver Ford’s $48 billion turnaround? How did director Maggie Wilderotter and her fellow board members engage top management to embark on an unusual exercise to help Hewlett Packard Enterprise build a long-term strategy? Why did CEO Paul Polman’s turn back to Unilever’s original mission of leading with a purpose to fuel profits? How did CEO Ivan Seidenberg convince his investors and board to allow him to make a $150 billion bet? How did CEO George Buckley find a way to address investor calls for 3M to spend less on research and development while still finding a way to innovate? These leaders argue that a short-term mindset might satisfy investors for this quarter or next, but there’s a heavy price to be paid. Instead, they argue, long-term thinking is your best short-term strategy. Called a “mandatory read” by David M. Rubenstein, co-founder and co-executive chairman of The Carlyle Group, Go Long is a critical resource for leaders who want their organizations to survive over the long-term and for anyone who cares about the global economy.

A modern day love story about a couple named Zeke and Legs. Zeke sprung from a world filled with danger and secrets. He was raised by two parents that instilled strong moral values in him. Zeke instead began to favor the excitement of the street life. Legs, on the other hand, was a stunning beauty from a loving family that fell victim to the negative trappings of urban life. Their paths crossed as they were beginning to live a normal life. Legs and Zeke fell madly in love in only a short time. Their lust and desire for each became a priority. They decided to marry when a child was on the way. This began the drama that was their life. Keep an open mind as you relive their lives.The story is written with truth and detailed accounts of the many events that took place. They both found God and sought redemption through Jesus the Christ. Don't let the discomfort of their acts deter you from reading their entire story. Remember; they had to live through it too! The real heroes of the story are God and Christ; consequently, without the resurrecting power of the almighty their lives may have remained lost. I suggest you keep a Bible close by; just as I did while writing the story.

Obwohl Effia und Esi Schwestern sind, lernen sie sich nie kennen, denn ihre Lebenswege verlaufen von Anfang an getrennt. Im Ghana des 18. Jahrhunderts heiratet Effia einen Engländer, der im Sklavenhandel zu Reichtum und Macht gelangt. Esi dagegen wird als Sklavin nach Amerika verkauft. Während Effias Nachkommen über Jahrhunderte Opfer oder Profiteure des Sklavenhandels werden, kämpfen Esis Kinder und Kindeskinder ums Überleben: auf den Plantagen der Südstaaten, während des Amerikanischen Bürgerkrieges, der Großen Migration, in den Kohleminen Alabamas und dann, im 20. Jahrhundert, in den Jazzclubs und Drogenhäusern Harlems. Hat die vorerst letzte Generation schließlich die Chance, einen Platz in der Gesellschaft zu finden, den sie Heimat nennen kann und wo man nicht als Menschen zweiter Klasse angesehen wird? Mit einer enormen erzählerischen Kraft zeichnet Yaa Gyasi die Wege der Frauen und ihrer Nachkommen über Generationen bis in die Gegenwart hinein. ›Heimkehren‹ ist ein bewegendes Stück Literatur von beeindruckender politischer Aktualität.

Er hat die Technologieblase vorhergesagt und vor der Immobilienblase warnte er ebenfalls frühzeitig. Nun analysiert Wirtschafts-Nobelpreisträger Robert Shiller die aktuelle Situation an den Finanzmärkten – und warnt erneut. Mit seiner Theorie des "Irrationalen Überschwangs" zeigt Nobelpreisträger Robert Shiller, dass Euphorie seitens der Akteure die Märkte auf unhaltbare und gefährliche Niveaus treiben kann. So geschehen in den Jahren 2000 bei der Hightechblase und 2007/2008 bei der Subprimeblase, die Shiller präzise vorhergesagt hat. Dies ist die dritte, aktualisierte und erweiterte Auflage seines Klassikers. Shiller bezieht hier erstmals auch den Anleihenmarkt ein und gibt Empfehlungen, was die Individuen und die Politik im Lichte der aktuellen Situation an den Finanzmärkten tun sollten.
