    Excerpt from Sourcing Journal -- "Fashion brands can combat consumer fatigue and turn it into excitement. To do that though, they need to better utilize creativity as a means to solving consumer-centered problems that are extracted from contemporary culture. For some brands, this needs to be addressed at the business level to bridge the gap between their operations and creative teams. For others, it needs to be executed properly and manifest itself in new form in front of the consumer. It can take the form of consumer-centered packaging/grouping, communicated in a context that stays as close to reality as possible, and activated via signs and codes that are authentic and flexible. If beauty can do this, so can fashion."

Stern School of Business, 'and nothing has compared to the interest in this' — it wasn’t ultimately about revenue generation."

The more productive workers appeared to finish similar work more quickly."

    Excerpt from Bloomberg -- "'The Chinese financial services markets will not be easy to penetrate,' said Roy Smith, professor of finance at New York University’s Stern School of Business. 'Chinese connections, relationships, etc. will be hard to replace, plus there may be a resistance to using foreign banks except where they are expected to have a role, and even then growing capabilities of Chinese banks will enable them to increase market share.'"

    Excerpt from The Native Society -- "There are endless ways to contribute to the world, and the world needs many sorts of talents. All I can do is try to find my own way to contribute. At this point, the one thing I’m sure of is that I draw strength from the people around me. I’m honored to be part of a discipline full of such dedicated and talented people. So I do my best to bring people together and make a whole greater than the sum of its parts. Part of that is being there when I’m called on in unexpected ways, being open to new things, and being willing to leave my comfort zone. I try to take a 'never say no' approach to work and life."

    Excerpt from Poets & Quants -- "Williams’ philosophies are grounded in a successful career that includes designing over 100 products and holding 30 patents. Like any great teacher, Williams is simply looking to unlock and magnify the potential talents of his pupils. 'When students start believing that their fundamental purpose is to alter the status quo, rather than preserve it, their motivation and mindset starts to change,' he observes. 'They begin to see opportunities beyond what others have defined as limits.'"

They find a marked decline in corporate capital investment relative to profits and valuation, starting around the year 2000, and a big increase in payouts to shareholders (dividends and buybacks, although the increase has mostly been in buybacks)."
  • atlantic logo feature
    Excerpt from The Atlantic -- "The researchers, Stephen Brown, Yan Lu, Sugata Ray, and Melvyn Teo, began with a hypothesis about a psychological trait called “sensation seeking.” As they write, the trait is 'defined by the seeking of varied, novel, complex, and intense sensations and experiences, and the willingness to take physical, social, legal, and financial risks for the sake of such experience.' Major sensation seekers, in other words, are the sort of people who probably make for good Hollywood protagonists, and they are more likely to step outside the law. Among other correlates established by earlier research, people with the trait are less careful with spending and engage in risky driving. So when their disposable incomes start to swell, the researchers reasoned, they are more likely to stop by a Ferrari showroom than a Subaru lot."

    Excerpt from the Financial Times -- "Limiting work used to be simple: it was just a matter of imposing shorter shifts. The seamless, addictive nature of digital communication makes it harder. But companies have a stake in realising 'how damaging social media and tech addiction can be', as Adam Alter, author of Irresistible, a forthcoming book on digital addiction, argues."

    Excerpt from MEL -- "'Generational tensions clearly foster more discrimination, and vice versa,' North adds. 'The main difference the perception of generational tension appears to be greater than at any point in recent memory. Age discrimination charges have steadily risen as older adults remain in the workforce longer than ever. On the younger side, unemployment rates are uncomfortably high. It’s created a unique climate of age discrimination and generational tension that clearly needs to be resolved.'"

    Excerpt from the Harvard Business Review -- "Our analysis showed that the less successful retailers had continued to chase growth by opening new stores far past the point of diminishing returns. By contrast, the successful retailers had drastically curtailed expansion and instead relied on operational improvements at their existing stores to drive additional sales. This allowed them to increase revenues faster than expenses, which had a powerful positive impact on earnings."
