    Excerpt from Project Syndicate -- "Indeed, though domestic investment is constrained by credit availability, major European and Latin American multinationals have begun investing in the Spanish economy, attracted partly by its enhanced competitive posture and structural flexibility, and, on a slightly longer time horizon, by a recovery in domestic demand. Private equity is flowing in as well, not only because the valuations are attractive, but also because potential growth in Spain now seems within reach."

  • men's health logo

    Excerpt from Men's Health UK -- “'We’re seeing a fundamental shift in our consumption from ownership to shared access,' says Prof Arun Sundararajan of New York University. That’s a boon in two ways: if you’re an owner, you can make money from something lying around the house (not the children); and you can use something you seldom need without buying it outright. 'If you don’t have to own stuff to use it, that expands your choices,' says Sundararajan."

    Excerpt from Globo.com -- "Being brief becomes more and more necessary as our attention is being pulled in a million different ways. If you're briefer, you probably have more opportunities to convey the message much more quickly. The audience has less time and, probably, you have less time delivering it."

    Excerpt from CNET -- "NYU Stern School of Business professor Tulin Erdem, meanwhile, on Friday also testified that she conducted her own studies, using eye tracking, to determine what devices consumers would buy.

    Excerpt from The New York Times -- "A study released on Monday by New York University’s Stern School of Business showed how hard [it is to improve garment working conditions]. It said that a major problem with the accord and the alliance was that while they will inspect 2,000 of Bangladesh’s more than 5,000 apparel factories, the more than 3,000 others generally have worse conditions — and middlemen often secretly send them orders from Western brands."

    Excerpt from TheStreet.com -- "'Although there might be conflicts of interest, there are also opportunities for alliances. It's a grey area, because it is not completely clear whether Google and Twitter are competitors,' [Yermack] added."

  • associated press logo feature

    Excerpt from Associated Press -- “'If the company is donating to the NRA it’s perfectly reasonable for the shareholders to ask for a report on political donations,' Yermack said. 'If it’s his private money that’s not really a proper topic — what people do with their own money on their own time.'”

  • Business News Daily Logo

    Excerpt from Business News Daily -- "'While people may be drawn to brands that fit their identity, they are also more likely to desire a sense of ownership and freedom in how they express that identity,' wrote Amit Bhattacharjee, Jonah Berger and Geeta Menon, co-authors of the study. 'Identity marketing that explicitly links a person's identity with a brand purchase may actually undermine that sense of freedom and backfire.'"

  • forbes logo feature

    Excerpt from Forbes -- "While the most innovative firms communicate to employees in different ways that risk taking and individuality are highly desired, it doesn’t mean all product development risks are OK. The most successful firms also have checks and balances to avoid completely uncalculated reckless risks, and they embrace and learn as much as possible from failures."

    Excerpt from The Wall Street Journal -- "'You don't get to pick your partners in the world,' said Michael Posner, who was an assistant secretary of State when Hillary Clinton ran the State Department. 'The Russians had their hands in a range of things that mattered to us. So the reset was an honest recognition that there are some things we needed to work with them on.'"

    Excerpt from San Francisco Chronicle -- "Arun Sundararajan, a New York University business professor who studies the sharing economy, said he thinks riders won't bristle as much when they face the new fee. 'I'm sure some users will react unfavorably, but we're used to variability and changes in prices from Uber, and I don't think it will have a big long-term effect,' he said."
