    Excerpt from Forbes -- "Cooley also expects Yellen to address the slow down but not harp on it instead focusing on labor. 'Its important for people to be willing to take a more detailed look at what is happening in the labor markets,' he said. 'That is where signs of price pressure are going to show up. The great recession cast a very long shadow – particularly over labor markets. We are going to see labor markets getting better but only in small segments.'"

    Excerpt from Bloomberg -- "The underwriting slowdown 'is part of an aggregation of things that is affecting Citigroup all at once,' Roy Smith, a finance professor at New York University’s Stern School of Business and a former partner at Goldman Sachs Group Inc., said by telephone. 'The effort to impose a big increase in internal controls is one that is clearly very labor-intensive.'"

    Excerpt from Reuters -- "The study by professors at New York University and McGill University in Montreal - which looked at informed trading activity in equity options before merger and acquisition announcements from January 1996 through December 2012 - showed 25 percent of the deals had some sort of unusual activity taking place 30 days before the deal announcement."

    Excerpt from WAMC -- "Widely recognized for research on the intuitive foundations of morality, Jonathan Haidt, Social psychologist and Professor of Ethical Leadership at New York University’s Stern School of Business, uses moral psychology to understand hyper-partisanship in American politics."

    Excerpt from Yahoo! Finance -- "A new academic study by researchers at NYU’s Stern School of Business and McGill University and detailed in the New York Times found persuasive evidence of trading on nonpublic information in one-quarter of merger-and-acquisition transactions from 1996 through 2012."

    Excerpt from Bloomberg -- "'This may be the first time we have seen a large number of high profile M&A deals in a low-growth environment in which countries might argue that mergers that reduce local employment should be stopped,' said Roy Smith, a professor at New York University’s Stern School of Business."

    Excerpt from CNBC -- "Damodaran also alluded to regulatory risk and insurance questions that still face the company. 'In a sense, what Uber does in most cities is already illegal. So, [for a $17 billion valuation] you almost have to have the assumption that at some point in time the regulations are going to change to allow them to operate big time,' he said. 'Because if they don't change, Uber's going to have to spend a lot of money fighting these regulations in city after city to get its business going.'"

    Excerpt from The Hill -- "The U.S. government's decision to relinquish its historic role in Internet governance has set in motion a transition with no clear resolution. The Department of Commerce has asked the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) to "convene stakeholders across the global Internet community to craft an appropriate transition plan," but where this will lead is anyone's guess. What is clear is that the transition provides both the opportunity for, and the necessity of, undertaking a fundamental reevaluation of ICANN's accountability mechanisms."

    Excerpt from Entrepreneur -- "According to NYU professor and researcher Arun Sundararajan, the dress-rental company represents a key aspect of the sharing economy because it democratizes luxury. 'Sure, they're doing it for fashion, but they highlight the broader promise of the sharing economy: access without ownership,' he says."

    Excerpt from Fortune -- "Roy Smith, a professor at NYU’s Stern School of Business, tells Fortune he is not surprised by Allergan’s release of the Morgan Stanley e-mails. Smith believes such tactics have the potential to garner Allergan a more attractive offer from Valeant, or even another buyer. 'If it causes some doubt among the Allergan shareholders that might be receiving this, then that’s not so bad,' he says."

    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."
  • cctv logo
    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."
  • livemint logo feature
    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.'"
  • cnnmoney logo feature
    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."'"
