Access from EThOS:
The existence of optimism as a personal psychological characteristic of managers is a necessity in contemporary economy and decision making, although the phenomenon of overoptimism may lead to unfavourable outcomes. The goal is to examine the optimism bias and its impact on the firms' future performance. Especially regarding the last years where Greece faces increased economic depression, high percentages of unemployment and lack of budgetary discipline, the goal of this study is therefore, to find whether managerial optimism has an impact on corporate investment of Greek firms. Since research on this specific field of finance is quite limited, this study tries to add to the existing knowledge on the Greek case. The investigation of managerial optimism as a personal, psychological and mental characteristic encloses the effort of Greek managers to come out of the economic crisis and consequently achieve greater outcomes for their firms.
