The Economist asks a question that seems to be on the mind of many Yahoo! share-holders: Is Terry Semel the right man to lead Yahoo! against its nimbler rival?
Of late, however, Mr Semel has been taken aback by the astonishing rise of Google, which today dominates the market for web-search and keyword-related advertising, having left Yahoo! far behind. His fate at Yahoo! now depends on whether it can catch up with its more agile rival.
Would a new CEO make a difference? Is he the right person to play catch-up with?
