    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."

    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."

    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."

    Excerpt from Bloomberg Businessweek -- "[Biggs] got to know the insurance business as chairman and chief executive officer of Teachers Insurance and Annuity Association of America-College Retirement Equities Fund, better known as TIAA-CREF, from 1993 to 2002. 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."

    Excerpt from Reuters -- "A very strong argument for regulatory change is demonstrating that you're valuable, demonstrating that you're creating value for society."

    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."

    Excerpt from World Economic Forum -- "Sustainable companies also are promoting greater economic participation of women, and combating corruption by embedding rule of law principles in their operations and initiatives. Taking this broader view of business sustainability is important both because it’s the right thing to do, but also because it serves a company’s long-term commercial interests."

    Excerpt from Forbes -- "Through examining the timing of company news and CEO’s absences from its headquarters, Yermack found that companies’ news frequency level is significantly lower when the CEOs are out of office for vacations. Therefore investors can get valuable signals about upcoming news events by tracking down the company’s corporate jet record and the chief executive’s vacation plan."

    Excerpt from Mashable -- "'[Amazon] put downward pressure on prices because Amazon was always trying to lower e-book prices. Publishers were always trying to prevent that from happening because it lowered the perceived value of books,' said Arun Sundararajan, a professor at New York University who specializes in digital economics."

    Excerpt from Quartz -- "Compensation plans like these originated in the go-go days of the 1980s, as US corporate raiders perfected the art of the hostile take-over. David Yermack, a finance professor at New York University, says that managers were often loathe to give up their job, even if a deal made sense, so golden parachutes were created to take managers’ personal financial situation out of the picture, so they wouldn’t protect themselves while their companies stumbled."

    Excerpt from Luxury Daily -- "When Chinese interact with Western retailers, they often complain about translation and shipping issues, miscalculation of prices and fees and inability to pay in RMB. Alipay, a product established in China and designed to respond to the demographic particularities of the Chinese consumer is positioning itself as the only product that can bridge East and West to make online shopping easy and enjoyable. Also, Alipay provides a new opportunity to Western retailers to increase their presence in the Chinese market without having to physically move there."

    Excerpt from Xinhua -- "In the eyes of Thomas J. Sargent, 2011 Nobel laureate in economics, Kashgar as a post along the Silk Road Economic Belt is no less important now than in ancient times. Sargent has visited many countries along the Silk Road, but it was his first time in northwest China's Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region over the weekend, as he attended a two-day international forum on the Silk Road Economic Belt. The forum focused on the development of central Asia."

Pinterest provides another way to deliver branded content that target customers will want to read, because it can help them in their jobs and personal lives, and is relevant and interesting."

    Excerpt from Bloomberg -- "Will it work? Probably not. And the same reason why we don't buy products or shop online when we're in a bar, why you're not in a commerce orientation when you're on vogue.com... A lot of stores opened on Facebook in 2012 and the majority of them closed in 2013. We're just not in a buying mood when we're looking at our friends' kids' pictures... What it probably is is a trojan horse to get your credit card number. Because once you have someone's credit card number, you're much further down the funnel in terms of things you can offer them and make it very seamless and frictionless for them to buy something."

    Excerpt from Forbes -- "Less speculative appraisals suggest a lower number; a fine-mined analysis by Aswath Damodaran, a finance professor who teaches equity valuation at NYU's Stem School of Business, pegged Uber's intrinsic worth at $6 billion."
  • business insider logo feature
    Excerpt from Business Insider -- "While the Fed (or any central bank) does sometimes make generic (and opaque) statements about overall market valuations, it is unusual for it to be this specific about individual sector valuations. In my view, it not only over stepped its bounds but strayed far from its expertise, which is not valuation."

    Excerpt from Business Insider -- "New York University’s Stern School reported an impressive 11.3% drop in average MBA debt to $93,832 from $105,782 in 2012. Stern Dean Peter Henry says a major concern for him is “accessibility” to higher education. One of his top priorities is to raise more money for scholarships for both undergraduate and graduate students. The reason average debt is down at Stern, he says, is increased funding for scholarships and a new program that forgives loans if a graduate pursues a career in the social sector."

    Excerpt from Marketplace -- "'For there to be trades, there have to be differences of opinion,' says Lawrence White, a professor of Economics at the NYU Stern School of Business. 'Somebody has to think, "It’s a good time to buy!" and somebody else has to think, "It’s a good time to sell!" When trading volumes are lower, it just means there’s less diversity of opinion, more consensus.'"

    Excerpt from The Wall Street Journal -- "In research recently published in Strategic Management Journal, a trio of business-school professors from New York University, Harvard University and the University of Southern California examined the effect that Craigslist had each time it launched in a different local market, from 2003 to 2008. The online-classifieds company is a popular online marketplace for fans looking to buy and resell tickets. They found that after Craigslist launched in a given vicinity, regardless of the market size or geographical location, promoters generally reacted by raising prices along with booking smaller venues or taking other measures to get shows closer to selling out. It is generally more profitable to sell out a venue with fewer seats at higher prices than to sell only a portion of the available tickets at a bigger venue."

    Excerpt from Quartz -- “Detroit is a long way from Dhaka, but the American city’s effort to address blight offer lessons for cleaning up the garment sector in Bangladesh. Released in May, the Detroit’s Blight Removal Task Force’s plan (pdf) offers a practical vision for addressing the more than 78,000 dilapidated buildings that are the primary obstacle to the city’s growth and vitality. In the year since the factory collapse in Dhaka, which killed more than 1,100 garment workers, brands and policymakers have focused on improving inspection in a subset of factories producing for the export market. … The next important step for Bangladesh—and the brands and retailers that depend on the country’s apparel sector—is developing a comprehensive plan for relocating, closing, and fixing factories. Here’s where Detroit can help.”

    Excerpt from Project Syndicate -- "The global economy is a far more highly interconnected place than it was 40 years ago. The cross-border flows of goods, information, people, and capital that are its lifeblood rely on a threshold level of safety, stability, and predictability. It is this threshold that appears to be under threat. Continued economic progress in the developing world and recovery in the developed countries requires preventing local and regional conflict from delivering large systemic shocks."
