    Excerpt from CNBC -- "And if a small investor does get taken, so to speak, in a volatile IPO, then there's no one to really blame but the investor, said Aswath Damodaran, a finance professor at the Stern School of Business at New York University. 'I don't see these online platforms as doing something that bankers don't do already. If they are going to attract small investors, and investors buy into their sales pitch, then that's a chance they take,' Damodaran said. 'If they want to play the game, let them play the game.'"

    Excerpt from The New York Times -- "A quarter of all public company deals may involve some kind of insider trading, according to the study by two professors at the Stern School of Business at New York University and one professor from McGill University. The study, perhaps the most detailed and exhaustive of its kind, examined hundreds of transactions from 1996 through the end of 2012. The professors examined stock option movements — when an investor buys an option to acquire a stock in the future at a set price — as a way of determining whether unusual activity took place in the 30 days before a deal’s announcement."

    Excerpt from VoxEU -- "In Giglio, Maggiori, and Stroebel (2014), we provide direct tests for the presence of infinitely-lived bubbles. We exploit a unique feature of residential housing markets in the UK and Singapore, where property ownership takes the form of either very long-term leaseholds or freeholds."

    Excerpt from CCTV -- "I'm looking to the examples of Paris and Amsterdam where Airbnb did face trouble a couple of years ago, but... through open dialogue with the regulators, with the city mayors, with the officials, they've come to sort of an understanding that this is, in fact, good for the city's economy, and they've put together a new regulatory framework that is inclusive of Airbnb and... brings the hosts under the legal umbrella."

    Excerpt from Livemint -- "Joel Hasbrouck and Gideon Saar, in a paper published by the Journal of Financial Markets, wrote that low-latency activity (read HFT) improves traditional market quality measures such as spreads, depth and volatility and that they need not work to the detriment of long-term investors."

    Excerpt from NPR -- "'When it comes to moral judgments,' [Haidt] says, 'we think we are scientists discovering the truth, but actually we are lawyers arguing for positions we arrived at by other means.'"
  • bloomberg businessweek logo feature
    Excerpt from Bloomberg Businessweek -- "On one of our first days on the road, we talked to a bowling alley owner who was doing an excellent job of using the Spence Signaling model, which says that potential employees may want to 'signal' their qualifications by taking some action (education, for example) that sets them apart from the masses. Economists love this model—Michael Spence won the Nobel Prize for it—and it gets presented to students in many MBA economics and human resources classes."

    Excerpt from New York Magazine -- "As Adam Alter, a psychologist at NYU who has studied name effects, explained in an email, 'When people aren’t sure what the candidates believe, they’re often swayed by irrelevant information, like the candidates’ names.'"
  • fox business logo feature
    Excerpt from Fox Business -- "Joseph Foudy says boomers’ longer career is positive for Social Security and other entitlement programs since it means people will be paying into the system longer. However, he adds 'it’s also disheartening how tough it is for Millenials. It’s not just the short-term hurdle of having to find a job, but it also means they aren’t building necessary skills most learn at entry-levels jobs and this hinders their entire careers. It’s a loss to the country’s potential productivity.'"

    Excerpt from CNNMoney -- "While he doesn't believe China is at risk of a crash, Roubini says growth in the world's second largest economy will probably 'surprise to the downside.' He expects Chinese GDP to grow 7% this year then fall to 6.5% next year. It could slow further if policy makers fail to implement structural reforms aimed at making China's economic model sustainable, he added."
  • bloomberg logo feature
    Excerpt from Bloomberg -- "As important as it is to have resilience in the US economy, we live in an interconnected world. And, specifically, Europe is an important market for us. The European recovery remains anemic. A recent Bloomberg poll shows that roughly 3/4 of financial professionals are concerned about deflation. We're seeing some deflation in Portugal and Greece. In your mind, is the European Central Bank doing enough to ward off deflation? Is deflation a concern of yours? And then, finally, is the European Central Bank doing enough to encourage the kinds of structural reforms that you alluded to in the United States that also need to happen in Europe: labor market reform, and so on?"

    Excerpt from Entrepreneur -- "Success as an entrepreneur is 'less about the idea and more about the person,' Blecharczyk told an audience at a conference on the sharing economy at New York University’s Stern School of Business last week. 'All along the way, people said, "No, this isn’t going to work, don’t do this."'"

    Prof. Aswath Damodaran on Uber's value

    June 10, 2014
    quartz logo
    Excerpt from Quartz -- "There’s no question Uber, which connects private drivers with people looking for rides, is a fast-growing concern that serves a real need in the market. But Aswath Damodaran, a New York University professor who makes a habit of publicly analyzing start-up values, says that the number is likely wishful thinking and a more accurate valuation is probably closer to $6 billion."
  • crains new york logo feature
    Excerpt from Crain's New York Business -- "'Small businesses are struggling with lower demand and the expectation of greater value while their rent and other costs aren't going down proportionally,' said Jeffrey Carr, clinical professor of marketing and entrepreneurship at New York University Stern School of Business."
  • forbes logo feature
    Excerpt from Forbes -- "Creative people have been pooling and exchanging resources for generations. Now, the emerging Internet-enabled sharing economy makes it easier than ever to swap, say, legal advice for lumber. That’s the kind of transaction that OurGoods, a new resource-sharing platform for artists, actually facilitates. OurGoods also serves 'designers, technologists, makers, farmers, and activists,' said co-founder and activist Caroline Woolard when we talked to her at the recent Sharing Economy Summit at NYU’s Stern School of Business. 'Artists have a lot of skills and also education, but don’t necessarily have money to pay each other to get their work done,' said Woolard."

    Excerpt from The Globe and Mail -- "'This is a setting that is very easy to be manipulated either by one individual bank or by a group of them,' said Rosa Abrantes-Metz, an associate professor with New York University's business school, whose research identified a series of unusual trades before the gold benchmark was announced. 'It completely lacks oversight and involves a very small group of competitors, so it is easy to co-ordinate behaviour,' she said."
  • bloomberg logo feature
    Excerpt from Bloomberg -- "During my time at the Bank of England, I often commented on the inverse relationship between the success of Aston Villa and the performance of the U.K. economy. During the past three years, as the economy started to recover, Aston Villa struggled. Its current turmoil bodes well for the strength of the recovery. In the longer term, the U.K. will continue to benefit from its ability to attract talent from around the world, whereas the England football team suffers from being forced to select only English players."
  • business insider logo feature
    Excerpt from Business Insider -- "David Yermack, a finance professor at New York University, has written a wonderful paper showing a correlation between the times CEOs take private jets to their vacation homes and movements in the company's stock. It is, perhaps, not surprising that CEOs go on vacation after announcing good news, and that they stay in the office when bad news is announced — propelling their stock up and down, respectively."
  • economist logo feature
    Excerpt from The Economist -- "'Collective attempts at liquidation to meet withdrawal requests would lead to ruinous fire sales,' write Stephen Cecchetti of Brandeis University and Kim Schoenholtz of New York University. 'After this happened even once, people would simply flock to the narrow banks, and there would be no source of lending.' To prevent this, the authors argue, governments would have to intervene to save the 'not-so-narrow intermediaries.'"
  • forbes logo feature
    Excerpt from Forbes -- "If you can engage your strengths, you’ll find more gratification in work; if you find gratification, you’ll shift into a more positive, approach-oriented mindset; and in such a mindset it will be easier for you to see the bigger picture—the contribution you are making to a larger enterprise—within which your job might turn into a calling. Work at its best, then, is about connection, engagement, and commitment."

    Prof. Luke Williams discusses Uber's valuation

    June 6, 2014
    fox business logo feature
    Excerpt from Fox Business -- "I think it's less about Uber and it's about the sharing economy. This is the biggest thing that investors have been excited about in a long time. The reason why? The sharing economy - it's not just an economic revolution, it's a behavioral revolution. These companies like Uber are shaping and changing behavior."
