    Excerpt from CFA Institute blog -- "In another volatility study by a trio of researchers from the New York University Stern School of Business and Morgan Stanley, which assessed distressed corporate bond portfolios, the authors concluded that investors are better off using a buy-and-hold strategy and investing in low-volatility distressed securities. When the portfolios are updated continuously as securities become distressed, the lowest-volatility portfolio outperforms because of lower default rates and higher terminal values. In theory, new data are absorbed by all markets simultaneously and incorporated into asset prices immediately."

    Excerpt from BBC Radio -- "Corporate America has become rapacious and Levi's and the shareholders have always stayed true to their core about doing good so there's a ton of people that are rooting for them. That's why I still buy Levi's."

    Excerpt from Pacific Standard -- "'Although forecasters predicted less intense emotional reactions when reading about a distant (fictional) event than when reading about a proximal (real) event,' the researchers write, 'experiencers actually reported equally intense emotional reactions when they believed the story was fictional as when they believed it was real.'"

    Excerpt from Marketplace -- "'The magnitudes are nowhere near in subprime auto what they were in subprime mortgage lending,' [White] says. 'So it’s highly unlikely that there will be any significant macro-economic consequences.'"

    Excerpt from Fast Company -- "If the app only changes your reaction to feedback, such as reprimanding you for checking your social media, then there’s a good chance you’re only changing your behavior because you’re using the app. When it comes to changing, Sundararajan says your best bet is to not put too much stock in the digital and technology. 'Over the last decade, we’ve started to overestimate the power of technology and we reduce the importance of things like community,' he says. 'A big part of behavior change has to do with changing the environment that you’re in and changing the interactions that you have with people.'"

    Excerpt from Socialter -- "Even though they are privately owned companies, sharing economy platforms are already sharing more of the value they create with their users than traditional companies would do: suppliers typically receive between 85% and 95% of the amount of the transaction. It is already a step in the right direction."

    Excerpt from Re/code -- "Sundararajan says he sees a lot of good in the sharing economy. 'It will lead people to entrepreneurship without the extreme risks.' He thinks of platforms like Uber as gateways. 'It’s even easier than finding a full-time job, which is easier than freelance.'"

    Excerpt from InsideCounsel -- "Do not expect that outside auditors will pick up the slack. It would be very difficult for external auditors to follow these factors, because they are not aware of the day-to-day events, [Ronen] explained. ‘Internal auditors are in the best position to undertake that task,’ Ronen said. For instance, internal auditors 'blew the whistle' on problems at Enron, an energy company, and WorldCom, a telecom company."

    Excerpt from Marketplace -- "'They’re basically in a monopoly selling position,' says Russell Winer, chair of the marketing department at NYU’s Stern School of Business. 'Since they don’t allow you, theoretically, to bring food into theaters, they can pretty much charge what they feel the market will bear.'"
  • boston globe logo feature
    Excerpt from The Boston Globe -- "By the 1990s, the notion that a CEO had an obligation to maximize shareholder value had become an unquestioned mantra taught in business schools; ordinary people assumed it was simply the way of the world. 'People think it was brought down from Mount Sinai by Moses, as the 11th Commandment,' said Richard Sylla, a professor who specializes in the history of financial institutions at NYU Stern School of Business, and the coauthor of a recent article in the journal Daedalus critiquing the notion of shareholder supremacy. 'If you’re younger than 50 or 60, you’ve lived in a world where everyone taught you that this is what a corporation is supposed to do—maximize profit and shareholder value. But the world used to be different.'The philosophy of shareholder supremacy, initially a reform to curb irresponsibility in managers, has ended up causing significant problems of its own, say Sylla and other critics."

    Excerpt from Bangladesh News 24 -- "Michael Posner, Chair Global Agenda Council on Human Rights, says, 'Given the importance of this issue and the various ways in which sustainability is defined and discussed, this White Paper presents an integrated picture of business sustainability and offers a foundation to guide future work in this area.'"

    Excerpt from Crain's New York -- "'A 6% unemployment rate is certainly better than the 10% we had a few years ago,' said Lawrence White, an economist at New York University, 'but it's still not robust, and at the same time, people see the stock market at all-time highs.'"

    Excerpt from LinkedIn -- "Porsche, one of the most revered brands both because of its long history but also because of its achievements, has proved time and again that form stems from good design while it also expresses good design. Architect Mies van der Rohe’s dictum 'form follows function' has found its perfect manifestation in Porsche 911, a legendary car that has been in production since 1963 and has been evolving ever since."

    Excerpt from The New York Times -- "Effective countermeasures now could actually ward off many of these threats at relatively modest cost. Yet despite a robust scientific consensus that greenhouse gas emissions are at the root of the problem, legislation to curb them has gone nowhere in Congress. ... Why aren’t we demanding more forceful action? One reason may be the frequent incantation of a motley collection of myths, each one rooted in bad economics."
  • city journal logo
    Excerpt from City Journal -- "When shared, driverless cars can operate like on-demand taxis, increasing urban mobility. Fleets of shared driverless cars could reduce the need for prolonged parking altogether, freeing up urban spaces outside of commercial and residential buildings as well as bike lanes, sidewalks, and parks for better uses. Outside the urban core, shared fleets of driverless cars could offer door-to-door trips for any itinerary, free from mass transit’s time constraints. Paired with computerized ride-share systems, driverless technology will also make carpooling more appealing. Easy coordination of passengers based on trip itinerary and time will increase the number of passengers per vehicle and reduce the space and energy intensity of car commutes."

    Excerpt from Project Syndicate -- "Though Russian President Vladimir Putin’s immediate goal may have been limited to regaining control of Crimea and retaining some influence in Ukrainian affairs, his longer-term ambition is much bolder."
  • bloomberg logo feature
    Excerpt from Bloomberg -- "The big challenge is this transition we're in. Many Americans prepared themselves, with society's input, for a world of work that's moving away from them. And so we have labor markets that are out of long-run equilibrium, where the skills on the supply side don't match what the demand side is asking for. And there's no perfect solution to this, but, for people of all ages, we have to help people close that gap."
  • politico logo feature
    Excerpt from Politico -- "In an article on July 25, the Nobel Laureate economist Michael Spence put it this way: '[A]t this moment in history, the main threats to prosperity … are the huge uncontained negative spillover effects of regional tensions, conflict, and competing claims to spheres of influence. The most powerful impediment to growth and recovery is not this or that economic imbalance; it is a loss of confidence in the systems that made rising global interdependence possible.' A claim of this sort can’t be quantified – but it worries Spence, and it worries me."

    Excerpt from Marketplace -- "'Asking for full payment is totally appropriate,' he says. The original owners of a country’s securities are ill-equipped to negotiate when those countries renege on their commitments, and the vultures have the appetite and ability to play hardball. Like vultures in the wild, vulture funds may serve an important ecological purpose. 'They provide in the case of distressed assets a liquidity that simply wouldn’t be there,' he says."

Now he’s an executive in residence at New York University’s Stern School of Business and the co-editor with Stern economist Matthew Richardson of a new book, Modernizing Insurance Regulation."

  • OZY logo
    Excerpt from OZY -- "After four years when no bank would touch it, Greece was able to borrow abroad by issuing 5-year bonds at 4.75 percent interest, raising 3 billion euros. A booming tourism industry — occupancy rates are up by 25 percent — has helped the economy return to timid growth but doesn’t provide a long-term solution. Foreign investment? Just a dream. 'Greece has not yet convinced investors that it is at a stage of recovery,' says Nicholas Economides, professor of economics at NYU and UC Berkeley."

    Excerpt from SC Magazine -- "Katharine Kendrick, policy associate at the Center for Business and Human Rights at NYU Stern School of Business, told SCMagazine.com in a Wednesday interview that 'one of the most promising things in the bill is that it adds back in the second on transparency' that didn't appear in the House bill."

    Excerpt from MarketWatch -- "'This new act would lead to greater price confusion and would be a big step backward,' [Morwitz] says. 'The most important piece of information consumers need to know is how much the air ticket will cost them in total and whether they can afford it,' Morwitz says. Airlines break down the total cost of the ticket during the booking process, she adds."
