    Excerpt from Vox -- "Calculations that we have recently completed suggest that the divergence between our numbers and those of the ECB can be explained by the continued reliance on static risk-weights in the regulatory assessment. In fact, using the projected losses in the adverse scenario employed by the ECB and applying a different (non risk-weights based, i.e. simple) leverage ratio gives results much closer to ours."

    Excerpt from ABC News -- "'In general, it's easy to get caught up in big milestones, particularly as we age -- but of course there’s no real difference between turning 30 and turning 29 or 31,' [Alter] said. 'Our culture emphasizes years like 30, 40, 50, and 60, but we shouldn't let that shape how we live our lives.'"

    Excerpt from Financial Times -- "It’s also worth noting that some tax-minimisation strategies do not seem to require any cross-border chicanery. According to data compiled by NYU Stern’s Aswath Damodaran, the sectors that pay the lowest effective tax rates in the US include broadcasters, coal companies, homebuilders, and telecoms operators — all businesses that make the bulk of their money from domestic operations."

    Excerpt from Bloomberg Businessweek -- "Scott Galloway, founder of Red Envelope and a marketing professor at New York University’s Stern School of Business, said people generally aren’t in a shopping mood when clicking through a friend’s photos or reading Tweets (TWTR). 'So far, social and commerce are strange bedfellows,' he explained. That said, engagement rates on Instagram are 15 to 25 times higher than those on Facebook and Twitter, which makes the space particularly valuable for any company looking to make a connection."

    Excerpt from Bloomberg -- "'The euro area is the biggest risk because I don’t think the leaders in the euro area actually have a true vision of how to cope with the problem,' King said in an interview yesterday with Bloomberg Television’s Olivia Sterns in Naples, Florida. 'Many are trying to put in place structural reforms, but that is not going to be sufficient to generate a recovery. They also need to have macroeconomic stimulus.'"

    New research from NYU Stern School of Business Professor Adam Alter and UCLA Anderson School of Management Professor Hal Hershfield shows that when adults approach a new decade in age (i.e., at ages 29, 39, 49 or 59), they search for existential meaning and behave in ways that can be constructive or destructive.

    Prof. Arun Sundararajan on Uber's surge pricing policy

    Excerpt from Economic Times -- "'Surge pricing is a way of balancing supply and demand,' says Arun Sundararajan, a professor at the Stern School of Business in New York who specialises in digital economics. 'The nature of taxi is such that there will always be periodic supply and demand imbalances over the day. For a market-based platform like Uber, price changes are the way in which a supply of drivers is brought into the market when needed.'"

    Excerpt from New York Magazine -- "The years before beginning a brand-new decade — ages 29, 39, and so on — tend to be spent in self-reflection, according to a new paper published online today in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. These are the prime What am I doing with my life? years, in other words, which prompts many people to behave in ways that suggest 'an ongoing or failed search for meaning,' the authors write. Their data suggests that these are the ages when people are more likely to either train harder for a marathon or run one for the first time; they’re also the ages when more people tend to cheat on their marriages or take their own lives."

    Excerpt from Project Syndicate -- "China does not have to give up the safety net provided by large asset holdings to allow markets to play a decisive microeconomic role. It can abandon the commanding heights model and develop its version of 'state capitalism' to support the best of both worlds. All that is needed is a persistently strong government commitment to the public interest – and, of course, a skillfully executed reform strategy."
  • chronicle of higher education logo feature
    Excerpt from The Chronicle of Higher Education -- "Universities need to move from the defensive, fending off divestment campaigns, to a more affirmative approach, examining how they can maximize their investments in companies that adopt longer-term business models that embrace sustainable environmental and human-rights business practices. Simply by making clear that these issues matter to them, universities can stimulate a broader debate within the investment community and in society generally."

    Excerpt from CNBC -- "Our 2014 DHL Global Connectedness Index shows that globalization is recovering from the hard hit it took during the financial crisis. However, international trade, capital, information, and people flows are not simply reverting to how they looked before 2008. The world is more international, but not necessarily more global, and trends vary across types of flows."
