    Prof. Paul Wachtel's research on credit is cited

    April 09, 2014

    Excerpt from Reuters -- "Little of the new credit created in the last few decades has served the overall economy. Schularick and Paul Wachtel recently ran the numbers for the United States. They show that the business sector has not borrowed from the rest of the economy since 1960. The pattern is similar in other developed countries. In other words, business profits were high enough to fund all desired investments."

  • economist logo feature

    Excerpt from The Economist -- "Hamilton knew what was at stake. A student of financial history, he was aware that France’s crash in 1720 had hobbled its financial system for years. And he knew Thomas Jefferson was waiting in the wings to dismantle all he had built. His response, as described in a 2007 paper by Richard Sylla of New York University, was America’s first bank bail-out."

  • wall street journal logo feature

    Excerpt from The Wall Street Journal -- "Starting to assess bitcoin from an academic angle while the currency is still in its infancy allows Yermack and Miller to set the agenda for future study of the subject. 'You can help shape the field by stipulating what you think the important topics are,' Yermack says. 'For an academic, that’s fun.'”

  • marketwatch logo feature

    Excerpt from MarketWatch -- "Whatever else you might say about today’s stock market, it is nowhere near as overheated as it was 14 years ago. And that’s not a subjective view. My conclusion is derived from a data-driven focus on objective measures that were identified by the leading academic study of investor sentiment. That study, by Jeffrey Wurgler and Malcolm Baker, who are finance professors at New York University and Harvard Business School, respectively, was titled 'Investor Sentiment in the Stock Market.'”

    Prof. David Yermack on Bitcoin as an investment

    April 07, 2014
    cnc world logo feature

    Excerpt from CNC World -- "I would not invest in Bitcoin if you're looking for a rate of return. I don't think you could consider it a good investment, especially for a poor household in a developing country that may not have much savings. Bitcoin is incredibly risky and there is no intrinsic value behind it. If you invest in a stock, there is a company paying dividends that supports the value of a stock. If you invest in a government bond, you have the government's promise to pay interest; with Bitcoin, all you really have is hope."

  • huffington post logo feature

    Excerpt from The Huffington Post -- "Brandon Fuller, the deputy director at the Urbanization Project, described the maps as 'a plea for some long-term planning' in a phone interview with The Huffington Post. Data visualizations like these, he said, have the power to help the public grasp just how quickly cities transform."

  • forbes logo feature

    Excerpt from Forbes -- "Baumol argues that governments around the world have misread the threat posed by increasing healthcare costs because they do not understand that 'the economy’s constantly growing productivity simultaneously increases the community’s overall purchasing power and makes for ever improving overall living standards.'”

  • financial news logo feature

    Excerpt from Financial News -- "But the real story may be that the Fed, itself under new management, truly wants to be a different type of regulator – one that is going to be strict, proactive and controlling. The post-crisis environment certainly creates an expectation for such a regulator, one whose stress tests, for example, are taken seriously. Rejecting Citigroup, without much explanation, might be an indicator of this transition."

  • new yorker logo feature

    Excerpt from The New Yorker -- "In one fascinating study by the business-school professors Jerker Denrell and Christina Fang, people who successfully predicted an extreme event had worse overall forecasting records than their peers. 'People who make these bold predictions tend to overestimate how likely extreme events are, so, while they may happen to hit it right once in a while, over all they're not actually good forecasters,' Fang told me."

  • inc logo feature

    Excerpt from Inc. -- "Keen Home began with vents, but the founders insist it won’t end there. 'We’re thinking of the home as a body,' says Fant. 'The respiratory system is an analogy for the Smart Vent, but there’s also plumbing, electrical, and other forgotten--or "sleepy"--systems.'”

  • OZY logo

    Excerpt from OZY -- "What fiscal discipline means is no more complicated than the story of the ant and the grasshopper: it means saving when times are good so when times are bad you can have a surplus. The best third world example of this is Chile. Chile is a third world ant; the United States is virtually a grasshopper."

    Prof. Gavin Kilduff on corporate rivalry

    financial times logo feature

    Excerpt from Financial Times -- "Prof Kilduff argues that we have a fundamental need to compare ourselves with others who we see as similar. 'It may lead to a preoccupation that goes beyond what is strictly rational,' he says. 'It can promote scandalous and unethical behaviour, the kind of thing that blows up.'”

  • fortune logo feature

    Excerpt from Fortune -- "'The idea is not completely crazy,' says Baruch Lev, an accounting professor at NYU's Stern School. 'It's been shown that the benefits of advertising stretch over two to three years.' But Lev insists that assuming they last a decade has no economic rationale. 'I'd recommend perhaps writing off half in the first year, and half in year two, so all the ad spend from year one is expensed by the end of year two,' he says. 'Ten years is extreme.'"

  • bloomberg logo feat

    Excerpt from Bloomberg TV -- "In the short term, I would say that with the recovery of the economy and with the Fed still gradually exiting QE... the stock market can go higher, but I would say given what has happened to P/B ratios, by the second half of the year we might have a correction, I would say, of less than ten percent."

  • Bob Pittman Langone Speaker Series

    Bob Pittman, Chairman and CEO of Clear Channel Communications, will join Langone MBA students for a 2013-2014 Langone Speaker Series event. Professor Charlie Murphy will moderate the discussion, beginning with a one-on-one interview and followed by an open Q&A session with students.

  • laist logo

    Excerpt from LAist -- "NYU's Stern Urbanization Project is giving us a chance to visualize just what type of urban expansion has taken over our city of angels from 1877 to 2000—and it's pretty cool to watch."

  • business insider logo feature

    Excerpt from Business Insider -- "'We believe it’s vastly overvalued and that the love affair with Twitter is about to come to an end,' said Galloway, who also runs the L2 digital innovation think tank. 'If you look at the number of advertisers advertising on each platform, LinkedIn actually has more advertisers than Twitter.'"

  • CNBC logo feat

    Excerpt from CNBC -- "'He is one the world's top academic economists,' said Arun Sundararajan, an economist at New York University's Stern School of Business and an expert on India. 'In my view, there's a lot of optimism in putting him in charge because it means we will start getting world-class thinking on fiscal and monetary policy.'"

  • wall street journal logo feature

    Excerpt from The Wall Street Journal -- "Lawrence J. White, a professor at New York University's Stern School of Business, said AIG challenging its regulator in federal court is 'not a once-in-100-year event, but it is unusual.' Most companies don't want to get on the bad side of the regulators, 'but if they really feel this is an egregious situation, they will just grit their teeth and appeal to the court,' he said."

  • forbes logo feature

    Excerpt from Forbes -- "One approach to providing environments that foster innovation is to take functional groups out of their silos, create multifunctional teams and locate them 'off campus': even if only in a different building across the street. Placing multifunctional team members in close proximity, away from headquarters encourages teamwork, bonding, more regular communication, and shared goals."

  • fast company logo feature

    Excerpt from Fast Co.Design -- “When your first sponsor is Citi and it’s called Citi Bike, there’s not a lot of value for other advertisers. They should have known upfront they were selling one sponsorship, and should have planned accordingly.”

    Excerpt from am New York -- "'Education should be as visible and evident in the city as New York Fashion Week or when we hear about a cool new exhibition at MoMa,' said Adam Brandenburger, an NYU professor who will be lecturing on game theory at Sweet Water Social in NoHo. Brandenburger added professors have become increasingly uncomfortable with the notion that access to education is restricted."
