    Excerpt from TIME for Kids -- "'There’s always a risk that someone won’t treat your stuff as well as you want them to,' says Arun Sundararajan. He is a professor at New York University’s Stern School of Business."
  • new york times logo feature
    Excerpt from The New York Times -- ‘''There’s a certain amount of liquidity that these large sellers inject into a marketplace that can be very helpful for the marketplace to grow rapidly,' Arun Sundararajan, a professor at New York University’s Stern School of Business who studies the sharing economy, told me. The competition should also help drive down costs, which helps consumers. But these marketplaces, he added, must 'balance the short-term accelerating their growth while also maintaining the quality, and in some sense staying true to what their consumers are looking for' — which might be freedom from big banks, or the stultifying sterility of budget hotels."

    Excerpt from Business Insider -- "'Once the secretary of defense post became primarily about policy (as opposed to managing the bureaucracy and keeping the budget under control), Hagel was a challenge for the Obama administration,' Bremmer wrote in an email. 'It's true that he wasn't a good fit for that job, but he also wasn't given a chance — they needed clear policy alignment, and pushed him out.'"

    Excerpt from Bloomberg -- "'The bankers are going to try and push LendingClub to compare themselves to the companies that make it look more attractive,' said Aswath Damodaran, who teaches corporate finance and valuation at New York University’s Stern School of Business. 'You as an investor have to guess who they remain comparable to at the end of the game.'"
  • new york times logo feature
    Excerpt from The New York Times -- "One common claim is that the wealthy routinely violate the economist’s law of demand. A bedrock principle of economic rationality, this law holds that as the price of a good rises, consumers buy less of it. Many analysts, however, portray the rich as people who lust after what are known as 'Veblen goods' — commodities whose sales actually increase when their prices rise."

    November 21, 2014
    bloomberg logo feature
    Excerpt from Bloomberg -- "'We understood that the idea behind the criminal prosecution by Justice' of Credit Suisse 'was that the punishment would not involve denial of business,' Roy C. Smith, a finance professor at New York University, said in an e-mail. Denying the bank the ability to do business would be 'very consequential,' he said."
  • entrepreneur logo feature
    Excerpt from Entrepreneur -- "'The next wave of opportunities in businesses will be companies that look at how we support development of the sharing economy,' says Sundararajan, who specializes in the digital economy and the economics of sharing (among other subjects). 'This means companies that make it easier for everyone to play a part, companies that really bring peer-to-peer into everyone’s life.'"
  • voxeu logo feature
    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 The Wall Street Journal -- "'It’s totally overwhelming,' says Norman White, a professor at NYU’s Stern School of Business who teaches a course on designing and developing mobile apps. He says there are so many loyalty-card apps out there now that it is hard for consumers to decide which ones to use and why."
  • financial times logo feature
    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).

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."

    Prof. Mervyn King discusses Europe's economy

    bloomberg logo feature
    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.
