    Excerpt from the Australian Financial Review -- "'Bitcoin is by consensus the most secure computer network ever developed,' says Professor David L. Yermack, chairman of the finance department at New York University's Stern School of Business. 'Many financial institutions have recognised that blockchains are potential conduits for many assets, including digital currency, shares of stock, real estate titles, and the like. Rather than constructing a blockchain from scratch, one might use an existing blockchain as the infrastructure upon which new markets can be layered.'"

    Excerpt from Clear Admit -- "For the Class of 2017 we had almost 17 percent go into the tech industry. That’s up from 10 percent last year, which is a significant increase that we are thrilled to see. Amazon is now our very top employer, and IBM and Google tied for sixth. I think it’s also changed some of the curriculum here at Stern. We have added a Fintech MBA specialization, which employers are well aware of. It really helps us position our students, because they have such a terrific opportunity to learn here at Stern about business and how tech is impacting where the growth opportunities might be."

    Excerpt from the Financial Times -- "Scott Galloway, a professor of marketing at New York University and the author of The Four, a book about Amazon, Apple, Facebook and Google, says the Honest Ads Act is simply 'window dressing' to make the Senate look like it is doing something. He points out that regulators have failed to shake up Facebook, which benefits from a large cash pile and earnings momentum that is unlikely to be lost any time soon."

'Insurance is all about the insurer’s perception of forward-looking risk,' said White. If a hurricane like Harvey makes insurers believe that Houston is more likely to be hit again, 'then for sure someone’s premiums are going to go up.'"

Not just that they’re investing their capital, but they’re investing emotionally.'"

The true promise here is laying the foundation for a much broader audience for this kind of education.'"

    Excerpt from MarketWatch -- "'Mobile devices have become a blessing in disguise for offline retailers,' said Ghose. Initially, they were used by bargain-hunting shoppers who ultimately spent their money on Amazon.com Inc. or some other site with a better price. 'Now the same mobile device is giving them an instrument to get location-based, context-based coupons,' said Ghose. 'It can prevent poaching by sending shoppers an offer that surprises [and] makes them happy.'"

    Excerpt from CNBC -- "I certainly think that the role of the government here is going to be to step to the line but not cross it so to speak, to put enough pressure on the large platforms to come up with good effective ways of investing many more resources into their governance. Honestly, I don't think anybody has the right answer to how to prevent something like this from happening. It is clear Facebook has to do more, it is clear that Google has to do more...smart strategy at this point would be to put short term profitability on hold while you make sure that more aggressive government regulatory action doesn't affect you adversely in the long run."

    Excerpt from the Financial Times -- "New York University’s Stern School of Business next year hopes to enroll 30 students with technology experience into a new Tech MBA. The programme will use a 12-month format, rather than the more common two-year model with a summer internship. Peter Henry, NYU Stern dean, says the one-year format is a better fit with technology employers such as CommonBond, because they rely less on internships to hire MBAs than employers such as banks."

    Excerpt from The Washington Post -- "'If someone is allowed to participate in luxury, not even own it, but to look at it, your heart opens up and your spirit is lifted,' Serdari says. When she lectures on luxury, she encourages executives to ask themselves: 'Can your company produce the next item that will be in the Met in 200 years?' Luxury is not merely something that’s expensive or something that bears a famous name. And it is not an indictment of a rigged economic system. It’s one of the things that makes the system worth fixing. Luxury products are those 'things that will speak of our civilization in 200 years,' Serdari says. 'Luxury is an expression of civilization at its best.'"

    Excerpt from Bloomberg -- ".. if you are a skeptic about the turbulence and populism and so on we see, you could look at the global economy and markets and say things are going well. We have a synchronized growth acceleration, pretty much globally, markets are at all-time highs, show low volatility, relatively little nervousness, reasonably calm reaction to the withdrawal of monetary stimulus, and so on. So it looks like we are in much better shape than we were ten years ago. So the question is, what disorder? And I think the answer has to do with the rising tide of political and social polarization, especially in the west..."

    Excerpt from CNNMoney -- "Others argue GE should have sold GE Capital long before it got so big that it endangered the rest of the company. 'They were too proud. They couldn't let it go. By the time they spun off GE Capital, it was already damaged and nobody would give them a fair price,' Damodaran said."

I speak a similar language and it shows that I’m passionate about filmmaking.'"
