What's the Best Way to Create Long-Term Value?

It's a well-known paradox. Most executives are committed to the idea of maximizing long-term shareholder value, but when they want to track and improve performance, they focus on a dizzying variety of short-term measures (and acronyms). ROA. ROC. TSR. EBIT. EBITDA. CAR. EPS. We could go on.

Why this focus on short-term measures? In large part, because they're easy to obtain, easy to use, and have been widely used in the past. The problem, as studies have long made clear, is that optimizing short-term accounting measures and ratios often doesn't maximize long-term value. To think clearly and effectively about long-term value, companies need a better measure - and, as we write in a recently published article in the Strategic Management Journal, we've devised one that we call LIVA, short for Long-term Investor Value Appropriation.

The idea behind LIVA is simple: Add up the net present value of all the investments a firm has engaged in over a long period of time. The key insight from our analysis is that this can be done by using publicly available stock-market data. LIVA uses historical share-price data to calculate the value a company has either created or destroyed for its entire investor base over a long time period.

Will the new market share cap on UPI apps affect the user experience?

UPI has undoubtedly become the face of a cashless India. The use of this ingenious payment interface has made it possible to make swift and simple digital transactions. So it is hardly a surprise that as many as 2 billion UPI transactions took place in the month of October alone! In the midst of this exponential growth in the UPI industry, the National Payments Corporation of India (NPCI) has made a rather shocking announcement that has ruffled many feathers amongst Third-Party Apps like Google Pay and PhonePe.
