    Excerpt from Forbes -- "For manufacturers, sample boxes away to give targeted consumers a taste, feel for, or experience with products they otherwise would probably not make the effort to get to know. There’s also far less competitive clutter in a sample box than visiting that product category section at retail, so the sampled brands have a much longer time for consumers to evaluate the selling messages on their packages. ROCKSBOX gives users who try the jewelry for a limited time, the option to purchase what they like for a reasonable price."

    Excerpt from Marketplace -- "Historically, they were big, well-known companies, often in consumer goods, like Procter & Gamble, General Motors, General Electric and General Mills, says Lawrence White, an economics professor at the N.Y.U. Stern School of Business... But even blue chips can fall, says White, recalling General Motors' bankruptcy. 'The stock holders of the old General Motors came out with nothing,' he says."

    Excerpt from Bloomberg Businessweek -- "Apple also needs to sell consumers on Pay. Anindya Ghose, an IT and marketing professor at New York University, says the company should play up what he considers Apple Pay’s greatest strength: the added security of its token system. Right after Apple’s iPad introduction event on Oct. 16, Cook said the payment service’s security and privacy, combined with its ease of use, will appeal to consumers. 'It takes some time to roll out to banks and merchants, but I think there will be an incredible pull from customers who want it,' he said. 'At the end of the day, a merchant always does what their customers want.'"

    Excerpt from CSPAN -- "Rather than have a heated discussion about the minimum wage and other redistributive policies, let's have a serious discussion about how we can put in place policies that will create access to education, make it easy for businesses to invest [and] people to start new businesses, make it easy for people to create the opportunities for employment and prosperity."

    Excerpt from Fox Business -- "The Apple brand has a lot of forgiveness. People are going to forgive them very quickly because they've got such a strong user base and it's an ecosystem that people feel locked into. I once heard it described as a prison you actually choose to go through because it's a closed system. So they're going to bounce back from this. Not a problem. I don't think it's going to have a real impact on the brand."

    Excerpt from The New York Times -- "What Bangladesh needs is a global fund that pools resources from the global brands, local manufacturers, Western governments and the World Bank and International Monetary Fund. Acting alone, not one of these entities has the will or resources to get the job done. But together they may just succeed."

    Excerpt from Bloomberg -- "In 2010, de la Renta quietly sold an approximately 20 percent stake to GF Capital Management & Advisors to provide additional financing to launch a beauty business and open more stores. To leverage its brand, the company will need more capital, said Scott Galloway, who teaches marketing at New York University’s Stern School of Business. He said the brand could be valued at as much as $1 billion if it can attract less well-heeled shoppers and said a strategic buyer or private equity firm might bite."

    Excerpt from CNBC -- "...when firms do well for a long period of time and grow to become these big cap firms, that creates a lot of political power, a lot of political capital for the divisions that have a lot of strength. Those divisions then want to keep that power, resist that change as the market changes around them, and that kind of leads to the inertia in the organization. ... because by trying to be efficient in making good decisions and avoiding big bad, risky gambles, they then weed out potentially good risky projects and that kind of makes them look like they're being very risk-averse."

    Excerpt from Marketplace -- "'If you only look at the headline cash number, you are missing a lot of the story,' says Rob Salomon, professor at the NYU Stern School of Business... 'As a matter of fact, there’s another example where this happened, which is Daimler-Chrysler’s spin-off of Chrysler. In effect, Daimler paid Cerberus to take Chrysler off its hands,' Salomon says."

    Excerpt from Fox Business -- "We've had about two weeks of spectacularly high volatility. However, when you think about it, it's only high relative to the last two years. We haven't seen this for two years. Before that, we had the financial crisis, which makes this small... There's uncertainty about the future. And then, a news event comes along and it moves the markets... The thing that I thought was the new piece of information was that Europe looked worse than it had. Germany was slowing down and Angela Merkel said that we better tighten our belts, which I think the markets thought was just the wrong answer."

    Excerpt from The Guardian -- "The accomplishments Roberts highlights in conducting inspections and identifying factory safety hazards are important. But workers and factory owners need to know next steps. Brands and retailers should work with Bangladeshi manufacturers, the government of Bangladesh, foreign governments, and development organisations to advance a comprehensive approach – underwritten by significant funding – to upgrade the entire export garment sector."

    Excerpt from Financial Times -- "The freedom of self-financing, combined with the implementation of the latest networking and teaching technology, has meant the top programmes increasingly are attracting students from outside their traditional catchment area. At NYU Stern, for example, the school’s EMBA is populated by participants from Florida, Illinois, Texas and even California, says Heather Daly, head of the EMBA."

    Excerpt from MarketWatch -- "...we’re kidding ourselves if we think that market reforms will be able to prevent [stock market crashes]. The only real solution is to devise investment strategies with the knowledge that big daily drops are unavoidable. These truths are what emerge from academic research into the frequency of market crashes. That research traces to 'Institutional Investors and Stock Market Volatility,' a study conducted a decade ago by Xavier Gabaix, a finance professor at New York University, and three scientists at Boston University’s Center for Polymer Studies: H. Eugene Stanley, Parameswaran Gopikrishnan, and Vasiliki Plerou."

    Excerpt from Luxury Daily -- "'What is missing is cultural insight that needs to be internal,' Ms. Serdari said. 'To either partner with people who are bicultural–which is very different than bilingual, by the way–or to hire talent because even though it is expensive, [brands] will have much more return on their investment in the long term if [they] really have people who interpret who the local celebrity is, what TV show is watched, is there a Gossip Girl in Brazil, for example,' she said. '[Brands should ask], are we going to showcase our merchandise with that particular platform? Why or why not?'"

    Excerpt from Christian Science Monitor -- "Public announcements like Burse’s can become the pretext for asking departments to reign in their budgets and employees to take similar salary cuts. An executive can use himself as an example in these situations, Dr. Yermack says. The Courier-Journal reported that Kentucky State University has a $7 million budget gap. 'This is purely symbolic,' Yermack says."

    Excerpt from SNL Financial -- "The insurers took on an increasing percentage of below-investment-grade bonds and shifted more assets to off-balance-sheet vehicles, while escaping scrutiny through "regulatory arbitrage" techniques, C.V. Starr Professor of Economics Viral Acharya said Oct. 14. The result is an industry that has added to its systemic risk during a period where most others are focused on reducing financial hazards. 'Everything in financial plumbing is connected to each other,' he said. 'We find that the insurance sector really doesn't seem that different from the banking sector.'"

    Excerpt from Marketplace Radio -- "It's going to make it more costly for these entities to borrow, so they're going to less of it... And, in the event the entity runs into difficulties, the amount of collateral will be greater. The lenders to the entity will feel more secure, [it] will be less likely that there will be a run on this entity and less likely that there will be a run on other similar entities."
