From MSU Today on Impact Radio: Gerry McNamara is an associate professor of management at MSU’s Eli Broad College of Business. He is interested in how and why corporate leaders make decisions, especially under stress.
“I study why smart people make dumb decisions,” McNamara says.
He details his latest research, recently highlighted in The New York Times, about the fact that “early movers” in a merger wave do better financially than those who wait and ultimately succumb to jumping on the “bandwagon” at the end of a merger wave.
