Abstract [en]

U.S. and U.K. firms have been thought to invest in a more short-term manner than Japanese and German firms. This article uses a questionnaire and interviews to compare U.S. and Swedish top executives' perceptions of short-termism. The study shows that managers in major Swedish groups feel far less pressure from the stock market to perform in the short run, than do their U.S. counterparts. Furthermore, the anticipated market growth and political uncertainty are far more important for the willingness to make long-term investments than is e.g. pressure from the stock market, the cost of capital, or the rate of inflation. Moreover, internal competition for funds can be a factor as important as pressure from the stock market as regards inhibition of long-term investments in diverse groups.
