    Excerpt from The New York Times -- "Even as the case continues, Arun Sundararajan, a professor at New York University’s Stern School of Business, said he would like to see Airbnb and lawmakers find a way to come up with [a] new set of guidelines that distinguish between occasional users of the service and those who are doing it on a much larger scale with multiple apartments. 'We need a new regulatory framework that is reasonable and inclusive of providing this new form of short-term accommodation commercially,' he said."

    Excerpt from US News -- "'The GDP – its bottom-line, short-term estimates are incredibly noisy, and for that reason, people tend to see the GDP recovers more quickly than employment, so that hasn’t served so well,' Backus says."
  • Excerpt from The Economist -- "Pankaj Ghemawat, of Spain’s IESE and NYU’s Stern business schools, calculates that only 12% of the world’s Fortune Global 500—the largest corporations by revenue—are led by a CEO who hails from a country other than the one in which the company is headquartered."

    Excerpt from Fox Business -- "I think it's actually a perfect fit. I see complete synergy between the brands because, when you think about it, the actual guy who designed the headphones used to be the head of design at Apple... People have to stop thinking about Apple as a technology company now and start thinking of them as a fashion and a lifestyle brand... They're also the disruptors... they wouldn't go and acquire someone who's just copied them. And if you look at what Beats did, they're the complete opposite to Apple. So Apple's coming out with these little light headphones, they came out with these big heavy bass headphones. Apple was coming out with something very subtle you hardly see, they were coming out with something very obvious."

    Excerpt from CNNMoney -- "'Quits going up is a sign that people have more confidence in their ability to find another job,' says Tom Cooley, an economics professor at New York University's Stern School of Business. However, Cooley adds that this report's relatively small change in people quitting their jobs is fairly insignificant because tiny fluctuations are often within the margins of error."

    Excerpt from The New York Times -- "'To position it as a status symbol, as something you buy to impress other people, doesn’t make sense,' [Meyvis] said. 'Other people don’t see it. You don’t talk about it. It makes more sense for mattress advertising to take a functional approach that provides a solution to a problem,' as the ComforPedic iQ campaign does, he said."

    Excerpt from Bloomberg -- "The process for initial offerings has been evolving for centuries. Among the first IPOs in America was in 1791 for the Bank of the United States, started by Alexander Hamilton. The offering, made through newspaper advertisements, allowed the public the right to purchase a share for $25. 'In the early days of the U.S., there wasn’t such a developed investment-banking industry,' said Richard Sylla, chairman of the Museum of American Finance and an economics professor at New York University Stern School of Business."

    Excerpt from Bloomberg -- "The percentage of the traffic you get from Facebook to a retailer does not convert at a high rate. The traffic is what we could call low-grade traffic. Whereas, the traffic coming off of Instagram tends to convert at a high rate and have a higher average order value when people do buy."

    Excerpt from The New York Times -- "In the study, titled 'Evasive Shareholder Meetings,' David Yermack, a New York University professor of finance, and Yuanzhi Li, a finance professor at Temple University, said they used 'the geography of meetings as a proxy for the evasiveness of management.' Compiling data on nearly 10,000 annual meetings held by more than 2,300 publicly traded companies from 2006 to 2010, they found that companies that held meetings at least 50 miles away from their headquarters and 50 miles away from a major airport generally underperformed the stock market by about 7 percent over the next six months."

    Excerpt from Gigaom -- "Part of a data scientist’s role is to automate his or her own work, leading to tools like prediction APIs. But these APIs are starting to replace data scientists in some areas, and that should be considered a good thing. We are now in the era of big data 2.0, as defined by Foster Provost and Tom Fawcett in Data Science for Business."

    Excerpt from Next City -- "How does it feel to become the first public intellectual of the Age of the Sharing Economy? 'It feels good,' Sundararajan says with a laugh. It’s gratifying that his ideas are having an impact, but he sees in it a responsibility: More academics should think about shepherding 'good thinking' into public policy and social change. 'It’s something I’ve prioritized to some extent.'"

    Excerpt from Forbes -- "From little butter almond flavored pastries that come free with each coffee at Financier shops in New York City, to free hemming of pants over $29.95 at Uniqlo, to free Cosmos served at Dashing Diva nail salons in New York City, customer touchpoints can be powerful differentiators vs. competitors and can also generate significant buzz and earned media!"
  • irish times logo feature
    Excerpt from Irish Times -- "Investors liked Apple’s latest earnings report, driving the stock from $525 to $600 (€379-€433). The big question, according to renowned valuation expert Aswath Damodaran, is why. Damodaran, an Apple shareholder, valued the company at $649 prior to the earnings report and $648 afterwards. There was nothing new; it reported low revenue growth and continued pressure on margins while the announcement regarding stock buybacks and dividends had little impact on Damodaran’s valuation."
  • south china morning post logo
    Excerpt from South China Morning Post -- "'When I look at China, to the extent that the data permits it, I look at the shifting structure of the economy and to the extent that one can do this from a distance sometimes, to look at the reforms that seem to me to be the critical underpinnings to support the structural transformation. At least on a short-term horizon, that is more important than the growth,' Spence said."

    Excerpt from CKGSB Knowledge -- "We can quantify the dollar value of innovation. And I think that’s one of the major issues that many managers face. They have to find out whether they should to put more money into the R&D or stop it. That’s a major decision and that depends on expected value of that innovation which we can quantify."
