Are short term gains, quarterly business reports, and the push for constant profits creating a culture in which companies no longer invest in employees for the long term? Cheaper and fast over better?

The people in charge at holding companies and big agencies are better positioned than I am to answer this question. I would just say that from my perspective, in an industry whose only assets are the brains, skills and creativity of its people, I don’t think that’s the case. However much pressure leaders are under, they still know you can’t do great work without great people.

What about data and efficiency? I feel like these are often taking a higher priority and thus making the people who develop great creative a little less valuable on the balance sheet

Recently, as you probably know, Dr. Seuss's estate chose to stop printing a few of his older books that had offensive racial stereotypes.

Full disclosure: I'm white. But I'm still enraged by all this. You?
