    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.'”

  • harvard business review logo feature

    Excerpt from Harvard Business Review -- "B&Q (winner of the 2006 'Age Positive Retailer of the Year' Award) says that it hires for soft skills, such as conscientiousness, enthusiasm and customer rapport, which senior workers also seem to show in abundance, while Home Depot famously looks to older store clerks for the experience-based know-how that customers demand. And these aren’t just perceptions: A report from the Sloan Center on Aging & Work at Boston College has found that, compared to younger workers, older workers do have higher levels of respect, maturity and networking ability."

  • 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.'”

  • 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."

  • 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."

    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."

  • 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.'”

  • 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."

  • 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.'"

    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."

  • 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."

  • 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.'"

  • 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.”

  • 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.'"

    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."

    Excerpt from Crain's -- "After years of relentlessly attacking the big stock exchanges with better technology, Mr. Harkins is now studying for an M.B.A. in finance and entrepreneurship at New York University. Being an entrepreneur is always fun and risky, he said. 'But if you know your industry really well, you can make educated guesses on where it's going.'"

    Excerpt from Bloomberg TV -- "I think Aereo is the Napster of our generation. I think it's going to be put out of business. They're taking on a 57 billion dollar industry whose infrastructure ... you can use technology to steal, and that's effectively what the industry will say these guys are doing."
