"Does the Stock Market Distort Investment Incentives?"

We evaluate differences in investment behavior differently between stock market listed and privately held firms.  In the U.S., listed firms invest less and are less responsive to changes in investment opportunities compared to observably similar, matched private firms. We suggest that these patterns are most consistent with managerial short-termism.

Note:  Registration is open through Wednesday, 10-12-11.  Anyone desiring to attend after this date will just walk in at the door, but cannot be guaranteed the lunch will be available.  (Please wait to check in until all prepaid or reserved people have checked in for seating)

Press:  Please email with your attendance status and the date of attendance. It will be assumed that lunch is NOT requested.   If lunch is requested, please contact me in advance, prior to the date of the event, for registration and payment instructions.
Credit Card payment is non refundable but you may substitute someone in your place for attendance.
