    Excerpt from The Wall Street Journal -- “'We’re seeing rapid depreciation for IT skills,' said Sonny Tambe, professor at New York University’s Stern School of Business and an expert on the high-tech workforce. 'So what happens to engineers over 40? You go to Silicon Valley [and ask that question] and you can see the panic in some people’s eyes.'”

    Excerpt from The New York Times -- "Sonia Marciano, a professor at the Stern School of Business at New York University, said her students expected more than big bonuses these days. 'My students, men and women, talk much more openly about an expectation of work-life balance,' said Ms. Marciano, who has been teaching for 20 years. 'It’s a shift that seems pretty real and substantial.'”

    Excerpt from the Financial Times -- "Universities face a difficult choice. What they offer, a branded degree and the social experience of maturing in one’s thinking in a 'high-touch' environment are still in demand and will continue to be for the foreseeable future. Moreover, as a society, there are also compelling reasons for us to preserve the traditional role of universities as a public good and the larger role they fulfil in society, including research and knowledge creation. But it is inevitable that profit motives will drive the upstarts up the value chain to eventually target the 'core customers', as in other industries. It would be unwise for any university to assume it will be able to function with its current business model in the increasingly unbundled world that lies ahead."

    Excerpt from The New York Times -- "Mr. Cooley, of N.Y.U., said rising interest rates were equally as concerning as the hypotheticals that the Fed has tested for years, which include job losses and declines in house prices. 'You tend to think about stresses to real-world economy, but you have to think about the stresses of a change in monetary policy also,' he said."

    Excerpt from CNBC -- "I'm just amazed that people can value the company with the information they have right now, which is nothing. All we know is it made about 8 to 9 billion dollars in revenues. It's a very profitable company. We know how it makes money. It's an advertising company. It's not a retail company. but beyond that, we know nothing. So, this morning, I pulled up about 100 articles on Alibaba's valuation, and every one of them was constructed around one word: China. That's all they said. The company's worth a lot because it's in China. There's nothing more to the story right now than that big country out there with a billion people."

    Excerpt from Business 2 Community -- "A lot of consumers – particularly Gen Y, Gen Z and to a certain extent Gen X – are quite open to marketing. They know that in order to use a free app, or to use a particular service, they’ll be exposed to ads. They accept this as a fact of life. But they want those ads to be relevant to them, and they’re willing to disclose information about themselves to ensure that happens."

    Excerpt from Minyanville -- "In December of 2012, New York University Stern School of Business professor Masakazu Ishihara and University of Toronto Rotman School of Management professor Andrew Ching published a study asking that exact question. The study, 'Dynamic Demand for New and Used Durable Goods Without Physical Depreciation: The Case of Japanese Video Games,' found that if used games were to be eliminated from the market, the profit to game publishers would drop by 10% per game. However, if publishers were to adjust prices to optimal levels, they would see per-game profit increase by 19% over current levels."

    Excerpt from Project Syndicate -- "But, as a recent analysis has shown, there is little correlation between a country’s relative economic performance in several dimensions and how 'functional' its government is. In fact, in the six years since the global financial crisis erupted, the US has outperformed advanced countries in terms of growth, unemployment, productivity, and unit labor costs, despite a record-high level of political polarization at the national level."

  • wall street journal logo feature

    Excerpt from The Wall Street Journal -- "Institutions should not be allowed to issue uncovered contracts—those not backed by an offsetting position to reduce risk—that are prone to runs. Banks could collateralize short-term assets with cash reserves or Treasurys and draw upon these in the event of a run. This would be a simpler, more focused and less resource intensive way to contain systemic risk."

    Excerpt from Reuters TV -- "The closer they come to midterm elections, the more likely it is that some members of the inquiry committee will see an opportunity to project themselves for their constituencies in their re-election campaign to hammer perhaps on the poor judgment behind the Obama administration trying to bail out General Motors."
