This is a good identification, although I'm not sure it's restricted to shareholder revenue per se. Companies (and individual people, I might add) seem increasingly unable to think, plan and act on a long-range basis. Whether it's companies that can't see past the next quarterly report, politicians who can't see past the next election, or software engineers who can't see past the next bugfix, there's a tendency to do whatever seems to work 'right now' and to hell with the long-term consequences.

This short-term, concrete-bound mentality is very destructive no matter where it is found.
