June 07, 2018
You hear a lot on our show about corporate profits, quarterly earnings reports and how companies beat or missed expectations. Warren Buffet and Jaime Dimon spoke out about this kind of quarterly forecasting this week, on the grounds that it fosters too much short-term thinking. We'll talk about it.

Plus: The Tony Awards are this weekend, but Broadway already has a lot to celebrate. We'll talk about the economics of the Great White Way.
