    Excerpt from the Economic Times -- "A 2014 article co-authored by Pankaj Ghemawat and Herman Vantrappen in Harvard Business Review pointed out that India’s share of expat CEO exports stood at 30% and imports at 3%. This is in sharp contrast to, say, the UK where CEO exports stood at 32% and imports at 42%. The study was based on Fortune 500 data for 2013."

    Excerpt from Big Think -- "'These findings have important implications for consumers, educators, and businesses,' Prof. Barasch said. Educators should think about how they present information and what they want students to walk away with. Businesses can concentrate on the impression they want customers to leave with. And, 'Individuals may think twice now before pulling out the camera.' Now that we understand how picture taking affects us, we can better decide whether or not to snap off a photo, by how it’ll impact our experience and memory of it."

    Excerpt from New York Magazine -- "All this local controversy, in turn, became a temporary focus of the roiling national debate over campus activism, free speech, and so on. NYU professor Jonathan Haidt, a leading figure in that conversation, wrote a statement defending some of Wax’s claims and arguing that 'collective actions' like the letters published denouncing Wax 'are only appropriate when colleagues have clearly and flagrantly violated their professional duties.'"

    Excerpt from Barron's -- "Benchmark deviants can swing high—or low. Funds with high active share—the percentage of holdings that differ from the fund's benchmark index—tend to outperform, so long as managers pick the right securities. Yakov Amihud, a professor of finance at New York University's Leonard N. Stern School of Business, says his research shows that every 10% deviation from an index affects annual return by eight percentage points."

    Excerpt from MarketWatch -- "'The CEO of Equifax said that the breach is "disappointing" when he should have said it is a disaster of no less consequence than a car manufacturer telling you your tires are defective and are putting you at grave risk,' Dhar, who studies cybersecurity and financial technology, said. 'This is NO different and it reflects an old-world CEO mentality of treating this as a technical problem instead of a business one.'"

    Excerpt from Global Finance -- "With new designs representing less than 10% of jewelry sales last year, accelerating the pace of product innovation will be key. 'Conventional strategies will not work,' says Serdari. 'Bogliolo must be as daring as when he was Diesel’s CEO and as proud as the Bulgari family has been. Not a small challenge, even for someone as capable as Bogliolo.'"

    Excerpt from Inc. -- "Government policy, Sundararajan said, should favor business models that treat workers less as footloose labor and more as microbusinesses. 'We should really encourage those platforms that are inducing the creation of tiny businesses, where people are making pricing decisions, they are making inventory decisions, they are merchandising, they are building a brand through the online reputation system,' Sundararajan said."

    Excerpt from Nikkei Asian Review -- "In their book 'The End of Accounting,' professors Baruch Lev of New York University and Feng Gu of the State University of New York at Buffalo argue that stock prices are now about 50% determined by financial information such as profit and assets, compared with 80-90% until the 1980s."

    Excerpt from Poets & Quants -- "While many executives enter business schools to master balance sheets and refine their leadership style, they quickly learn that the MBA is really a guide to decision-making. At New York University, for example, Renee Vieira, executive director of Time Warner’s global leadership development program, considers 'Professional Responsibility' to be the most valuable course that she took. ... 'Being a successful leader is not only about having financial, strategic, marketing, and operational acumen,' she adds, 'it is truly about who you are as a person and how you lead and inspire those around you.'"

    Excerpt from Financial Sense -- "'We need to face these issues,' Sylla said. 'We do have to face up to some of these debt problems, and we've been lucky with these low interest rates... Maybe the outlook isn't so bad if we normalize interest rates and the economy keeps growing. I think that we would get back to more normal times instead of the interesting times we had for the last 40 years or so.'"
  • bloomberg view logo
    Excerpt from Bloomberg View -- "The authors look at historical episodes where competition increased -- an unusual wave of new companies in the 1990s, and increased Chinese competition in the 2000s. In each situation, industries where competition increased more also tended to invest more. Again, this is consistent with the story that market power is holding back the U.S. economy. Gutierrez and Philippon have another paper where they test eight different economic theories to explain falling business investment, and find that market power -- along with corporate short-termism -- is the most likely explanation."

    Excerpt from CBC -- "Taxing robots is a particularly a bad idea in an era of low productivity growth, according to Robert Seamans, an associate professor of management at New York University. 'The existing empirical evidence suggests that robots boost productivity growth, so a tax on robots would limit that productivity,' he says."

    Excerpt from Missoula Independent -- "David Yermack, a professor of finance at New York University and bitcoin expert, says mining companies have no special reason for secrecy beyond 'standard security concerns.' Mine locations are usually dictated by access to cheap electricity (in Project Spokane's case, power is supplied by the Séliš Ksanka Ql'ispé Dam, according to Northwestern Energy documents posted online). 'Knowing the location of a bitcoin mine would not be particularly valuable information, except perhaps to potential competitors who might move to the area and try to exploit the same cheap sources of electricity,' Yermack says."

The authors, Sarah Labowitz and Dorothée Baumann-Pauly, claimed among other things that even after 3,425 inspections by trackers of the Accord, the Alliance and overseers International Labour Organization, 'only eight factories have passed final inspection'."

'If it does well, I think [Apple] will make the trillion dollar market cap,' he said. 'If the iPhone 8 does badly, all bets are off.'"

  • business insider logo feature
    Excerpt from Business Insider -- "Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin has said it will take up to two years for the economy to sustain this pace. But some economists have said the target is too high. That's partly because new technologies are not producing the same kind of productivity growth that they did before the Great Recession, said Gian Luca Clementi, an associate professor of economics at New York University’s Stern School of Business. 'If anything, President Trump has brought about a lot of policy uncertainty, and that is just bad news for the economy,' he told Business Insider."
  • cnbc logo feature
    Excerpt from CNBC -- "There was a bipartisan report in 2012 on economic recovery and jobs and competitiveness in the United States which told us that, by 2020, we were going to be 1.5 million skilled, college educated, workers short in the United States... So that suggests that you've got to do two things. One, you've got to grow those workers. You've got to find a way to create more educational ability within the country. But while you're trying to catch up on that front, you've also got to encourage immigration of skilled workers. And so, if you really want an agenda that's going to drive shared prosperity, a pro-immigration agenda is a pro-growth agenda."

    Excerpt from Bloomberg -- "Late last year, a study by a New York University professor, Thomas Philippon, and a graduate student, German Gutierrez, examined the reasons R&D spending has been weaker than expected since at least 2002 but plunged after the Great Recession.They found only three factors that at least mathematically appeared to correlate with the drop in R&D. One was an increase in index investors."
