She argues that market screening, like the medical sort, is useful as an indicator that prompts further investigation."

    Prof. Vicki Morwitz on StubHub's new pricing

    March 28, 2014
    marketwatch logo feature

    Excerpt from MarketWatch -- "Studies show that consumers have a blind spot when it comes to hidden fees, says Vicki Morwitz, a professor of marketing at the Stern School of Business at New York University. 'When firms separate surcharges from the base price, research shows that consumers do not fully notice them or integrate them into their estimates of total costs,' she says. 'In the short run, I am not surprised that [StubHub’s new pricing] affected sales, since we know that price perceptions influence sales.'”

    Excerpt from The New Yorker -- "In 2012, an economic analysis by Masakazu Ishihara, of New York University, and Andrew Ching, of the University of Toronto, found that if used games were to disappear from the market and new games stayed at current prices—which would effectively make the games more expensive for the buyer—the average profits per game would fall by ten per cent."

    Excerpt from NPR -- "If you have to rock the boat to get what you think you deserve, then you should do it, but I think there's a right way to do it. You don't have to be rude."

    Excerpt from CNBC -- "We started the idea for SunCulture through New York University's Business Plan Competition about two years ago... I studied mechanical engineering. I was working in renewable energy. We were doing large-scale commercial solar power installations and Samir came on board as a finance guy coming from Stern. So we put those two backgrounds together and made this idea happen."

    Excerpt from Poets & Quants -- "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."

  • wall street journal logo feature

    Excerpt from The Wall Street Journal -- Arun Sundararajan, a professor at New York University's Stern School of Business, said Citi Bike's success supported an argument for more private financing from higher fees and more corporate sponsorship -- not public funding. 'Right now the large revenue bet should be on annual subscribers,' he said. If annual memberships rose to as much as $140, 'it seems very unlikely to me that a lot of people would not renew because of price.'"

  • reuters logo feature

    Excerpt from Reuters -- "...it's back to what the firm has done well for a long time, which is the Office suite. But it's kind of saying we're going to favor one of the children of the company as opposed to the other, as opposed to trying to keep them together as they've been doing for the last 20-something years."

  • bloomberg logo feat

    Excerpt from Bloomberg TV -- "There's differences between culture and differences within the company, but when you think about the example you're setting for your own organization in some ways, about what responsibility means within your organization and kind of how you think about conveying bad news...that sends a signal for how bad news should be conveyed within an organization if you send it out by text message."

  • bloomberg logo feat

    Excerpt from Bloomberg TV -- "First of all, you have a bunch of countries that are fragile independent of the Fed, like Argentina and Venezuela and the domestic political and economic dynamic of it is going to matter more than what the Fed does... Secondly, I would say that within Latin America, there are some countries that are actually much more sensitive to the China risk rather than the Fed risk. Take, for example, Peru or Chile... For them, Fed normalization is not going to be a big shock."

  • bloomberg logo feat

    Excerpt from Bloomberg TV -- "Back to this whole idea that innovation changes radically when companies go public: This is how innovation happens for publicly traded companies. They go in and they make these deals, they make these acquisitions, they invest in things to kind of grow the portfolio as opposed to deepening what they are already in."

  • bnn logo feature

    Excerpt from BNN -- "The amount of contracts outstanding linked to interest rates like Libor and Euribor et cetera, those are in the region of 600 to 700 trillion dollars, so the sheer size of these markets has increased tremendously, and that increases the potential for profit if one is able to manipulate one or other of these rates or prices. On the other hand, the technology for detection of manipulation has also improved... so we are able to trace things that probably we were not able to even a few years ago. So these two factors are at work, but my own feeling is, given the stakes that are at work here, the incentive to manipulate has been substantial and a few unscrupulous people have been able to derive substantial profits and, of course, a few are being caught today."

    Excerpt from Forbes -- "NYU finance professor Aswath Damodaran updated his take on Tesla on his blog this week, admitting the company has made significant strides since he last pegged its value at around $67 a share last September. Still, for all the projected positives, Damodaran doesn’t see enough to justify the current lofty price levels and puts the current value somewhere between $99 and $119 (depending on the timing of option exercises)."

  • time magazine logo feature

    Excerpt from TIME -- “'In the future, donors will be a lot more circumspect and skeptical about putting in money, especially in projects where they could have even an inkling of an idea that this might be bought out by a tech giant like Google, Facebook, or Apple,' says Anindya Ghose, a professor at New York University who studies the crowdfunding sector. 'They do not believe in backing projects for financial, commercial reasons. For them it’s a lot about a cause or altruism.'”

    Excerpt from The Huffington Post -- "Should leaders who want to create high-performing companies try to foster feelings of wonder in their employees? The evidence suggests that the answer is yes. Not only is wonder a component of The Third Metric, but it has been shown to move the meter on the other three components: well-being, wisdom, and giving."
