With all of the (much needed) talk about how we are going to stimulate the economy and attempt to get things back on a forward track it's quite easy to get confused. Today's Wall Street Journal has a great editorial from Sam Palmisano, Chariman/CEO of IBM, discussing how the government can invest for growth.
It's a must read. It's well written, well thought, and on point. Additionally, it has lessons for all business leaders on how even when the short-term interests and the long-term interests seem to no longer align, with a little thought and creativity they just might. My favorite quote from the article: "Rather than just stimulate, we should transform."
