    Excerpt from The New York Times -- "In our negotiation course, we talk about preparation being 70% of negotiation. That's the opposite intuition that most of us have. We picture negotiation success happens at the table. What we teach in our course is it's exactly the opposite. It happens before you get to the table. That's part of preparation, having those kinds of conversations with people inside the organization, people outside the organization, people who know you well, people who know the industry well, people who know the labor market for your particular set of skills well. All of these are data points that give you a sense of what's appropriate."

    Excerpt from The Wall Street Journal -- "'When they meet a long distance away, they really don’t want a lot of attention — they want to keep people from attending,' says co-author David Yermack, a New York University finance professor who studies corporate boards and related issues. Poor performance is worse when companies suddenly switch to an out-of-town meeting after years of meeting close to home."

    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.

  • financial times logo feature

    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 NPR -- "The Greek government is starting to fix some of its fundamental problems, says Nicholas Economides, a professor at NYU. To crack down on tax evasion, the government now puts property tax on power bills. So if people don't pay the tax, the power gets cut off."

    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."

    March 20, 2014
    CNBC logo feat

    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."

  • business2community logo feature

    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."
