    Excerpt from Bloomberg View -- "Spence realized that there is a lot of information asymmetry in the job market. Employers want employees who are smart, conscientious, hard-working and team-oriented. But they can’t tell most of those things from an interview or two. So prospective employees might prove themselves by getting some credential -- completing some difficult educational program -- to prove they have what it takes. Thus was born the signaling theory of education."

    Excerpt from Quartz -- "Encouraging stronger ties to Russia might increase the Russian share in some of these metrics, but the European Union continues to be a more attractive partner for Greece. Athens should be careful; Russia is in no position to replace European support of the Greek economy."
  • The New York Times
    Excerpt from The New York Times -- "Universities need to move from defensive — fending off divestment campaigns — to a more affirmative approach, exploring how to generate solid financial returns while rewarding long-term, sustainable business practices. To maximize their impact, those with the largest endowments should join together to develop common standards and metrics by which they will determine which companies merit their investments."

    Excerpt from The New York Times -- "'If anything you would have to say this is a muddling through,' said Mr. Smith, who has written about Deutsche Bank’s strategy. Deutsche Bank remains enormously complex and difficult to manage, he said. 'It’s a big bull of a bank,' Mr. Smith said. Mr. Smith pointed out that the name of the reorganization plan, Strategy 2020, means that even if Deutsche Bank meets all its goals, it will still have been 12 years since the beginning of the financial crisis 'before they get to some kind of equilibrium.'"
  • The Washington Post
    Excerpt from The Washington Post -- "'Even for the most successful multinationals, profit margins in international markets are on average lower than margins in the domestic market,' said Robert Salomon, aprofessor of international management at the NYU Stern School of Business. 'It’s the liability of foreign markets. By virtue of the fact that you are foreign, you are at a disadvantage.'"

    Excerpt from The New York Post -- "David Yermack, a New York University business professor who specializes in corporate governance, said family feuds in boardrooms don’t readily resolve themselves. 'You need stability in the founding family or the company is likely to face all kinds of disruption,' he said. 'It often hurts productivity in that management gets caught in the middle after implicitly being asked to choose sides.'"

    Excerpt from Bloomberg -- "The problem is that the Europeans, at the time that they had a chance to make a deal with the previous coalition government... When they had the chance, they didn't really do it... and then the extreme left gets elected and now it's very hard to make a deal. Greece has a good chance of going to bankruptcy, to actually not able to pay its loans in the near future, the next few weeks."

    Excerpt from Quartz -- "Meanwhile, one small team of researchers at NYU’s Stern Center for Business and Human Rights has made it their mission to put all of Bangladesh’s garment factories on a single map. 'You can’t do anything to fix something,' Nayantara Banerjee, a Stern graduate fellow and the project’s manager, told Quartz, 'if you can’t find it.'"

  • The Washington Post
    Excerpt from The Washington Post -- "Even if they do fix the factories where they have contracts, however, they may not reach the whole industry. Although the government has registered only about 3,400 factories, Sarah Labowitz, director of the Center for Business and Human Rights at New York University, has estimated that there are closer to 6,000 -- many of them smaller buildings that subcontract with the larger companies when big orders come in. 'It’s really about the invisible factories,' Labowitz says. 'There’s a network of thousands of factories that don’t maintain direct relationships with buyers. Nobody knows how many there are.'"

    Excerpt from TIME -- "Even for those migrants who safely reach European shores, their troubles are far from over. The EU requires that asylum petitions be processed by the country in which migrants first arrive. As a result, southern countries such as Malta, Italy and Greece have found themselves overwhelmed by the sheer numbers of incoming migrants, while richer northern countries receive relatively few."

    Excerpt from NPR -- "'I myself have been selling stocks and raising cash, because I think I might be able to buy a lot of these stocks at lower prices, say 6 months or a year from now,' says Richard Sylla, a financial markets professor at NYU's Stern School of Business. And that means he knows about all kinds of esoteric-sounding yardsticks for measuring the stock market. On some metrics, like the 'Shiller CAPE ratio,' he says, 'our markets as a whole, they are as high as any time except 1929, 1999 and 2007.'"
  • marketwatch logo feature
    Excerpt from MarketWatch -- "Crowdfunding for medical costs isn’t a new phenomenon per se. Communities have long rallied around people in need, whether that’s a house of worship taking up a collection for a grieving member or a school holding a fundraiser for a sick student. Indeed, helping 'has always been network-based,' said Jason Greenberg, assistant professor of management at NYU Stern School of Business. Before the Internet, it was just done on a much smaller scale."

    Excerpt from Bloomberg -- "Cecchetti and co-author Kermit Schoenholtz, of New York University’s Stern School of Business, suggest a 'cash reserve account' that would keep people from having to pay for things by sending cash in armored trucks. During the day, funds in the account would be payable just like money in a checking account. But every night they’d be swept into cash held in a vault, sparing the money from the negative interest rate that would apply to money in an ordinary checking account."

    Excerpt from Reuters -- "'This will raise concerns about the stability of financial markets,' said Robert Engle, finance professor at New York University's Stern School of Business. 'That this trader could put the markets in a tailspin with actions that are hard to detect is bad news.'"

    Excerpt from Fortune -- "Within two to four weeks, Greece will not be able to pay salaries, pensions and loan obligations to the International Monetary Fund and other lenders. The clock is ticking and time is running out. Greece must grasp the only lifeline left and negotiate with creditors now to save itself."

    Excerpt from CNBC -- "To figure out which big oil stocks screen as being a default risk, we used the Altman Z-Scores Plus website, founded by a former student of the Z-Score creator, New York University finance professor Edward Altman. Altman is known for his corporate distress prediction models. An Altman Z-Score of below 1.81 is considered a red flag."

    Excerpt from Marketplace -- "They're always difficult cases to make, because, as with the Dodd-Frank law, it's going to turn on intent - putting out a better offer that you don't intend to execute - and in any legal situation, intent is difficult to establish."

    Excerpt from Financial Times -- "Although the research was designed to develop an economic model to predict the effect of peer-to-peer lending, it has highlighted clear benefits for society as well. 'It [peer-to-peer lending] has got a democratising effect on access to nice stuff,' says Prof Sundararajan. 'You are democratising access to a higher standard of living.'"

    Excerpt from Quartz -- "In a new study of a trucking company in the midst of adopting Toyota’s famous lean principles (which emphasize respect, humility, and collective outcomes over individual ones) researchers from NYU and Columbia found that putting up a leaderboard comparing individual performance had vastly different effects, depending on whether or not an individual site had undergone the new cultural training."
