Wait, I'm confused. Short term shareholder driven? I hold shares in a couple of mutual funds and my 401K, and my wife has held stock in a high tech firm for 15 years.

They think 3 years, plunder the company, get the parachute, bail, and leave us with a hollow shell.

Employee co-determination and strong collaboration between the company, the education/vocational sector and Government are key ingredients behind VW's success. Compare and contrast with the short-term shareholder-rather than-stakeholder-driven system in other countries and you quickly realise where we are going wrong...
