  • Analysis: Companies' cash hoarding contributes to stagnation
    Corporations worldwide might be contributing to economic stagnation by hoarding cash, rather than using the money for expansion, according to The Economist. "Investment has steadily risen since the recession ended, but not as vigorously as profits," the magazine notes. "In America, for example, nominal capital expenditure this year (on an annualised basis) has risen by 6% compared with 2007; internal cash flow is up by 32%."

"The man or woman at the top of the pyramid must work hard to enable people to speak truth to power," he says. SmartBrief/SmartBlog on Leadership (11/2) LinkedInFacebookTwitterGoogle+Email this Story
