    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 The Wall Street Journal -- "First, much of politics is less about what you are for than who you are against, as Jonathan Haidt, a New York University psychology professor, noted in his popular 2012 book 'The Righteous Mind.'"

    Excerpt from The Economist -- "A new NBER paper by Harold Cole at the University of Pennsylvania and Thomas Cooley of the Stern School of Business also challenges the notion that it would be better to get the investors who are buying bonds to pay for ratings. They might choose not to release the ratings they pay for, it points out. Patchy information, in turn, could increase the likelihood that the market would misprice securities."

    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."

    Excerpt from The New York Times -- "Technology won’t eliminate our need for suitable gifts and tokens of commitment, of course. And such things will still need to be both intrinsically pleasing and genuinely scarce. But technology will change where those qualities reside."

  • money magazine logo

    Excerpt from Money Magazine -- "Of course, the right approach depends on your manager's personality and the security of your job. You may find it safer to agree to a task but ask for the resources you need to do it. 'Say, "Yes, but to do that, I need x, y, or z,"' suggests Lechner."

  • CNET logo

    Excerpt from CNET -- "[Erdem] testified she conducted her own studies, using eye tracking, to determine what devices consumers would buy. Erdem didn't include Apple's patented features because she said it wouldn't be realistic based on what's typical for device comparison sites. And she concluded that things such as the secondary camera didn't boost desire for the products. 'As a group, the minor things didn't drive demand,' she said. 'It was the major things that drive demand.'"

  • wnyc logo feature

    Excerpt from WNYC -- "So why do people complain so much about the price of a museum ticket in New York? Maybe it's the perception that art is a universal treasure, and therefore should be accessible to everybody. Bill Greene, a professor of economics at the Stern School of Management at New York University, offered another explanation: “A lot of museums are free. For example, go to Washington, all the Smithsonian institutions, all the museums are free,” he said.

    Excerpt from The Atlantic Cities -- "In the next century, 5.2 billion of these new urban residents, accounting for nearly all of this city population boom, will live in regions of the world that are currently less developed, according to Fuller and Romer. More than 600 new cities with populations of ten million each would need to be built over the course of the coming century to accommodate this growth, they explain."

  • Next City logo

    Excerpt from Next City -- "Arun Sundararajan, a professor at New York University’s Stern School of Business and NYU’s Center for Urban Science and Progress has advocated for 'a safe harbor' where services like UberPOP and Djump 'can operate legally while we gather information about the right division of responsibilities between the marketplace and the regulators.'”

  • wall street journal logo feature

    Excerpt from The Wall Street Journal -- "Peter Henry, dean of New York University’s Stern School of Business, lamented the 'big, structural impediments' in workplaces that restrict accommodations for working families. Though part of their task is to train leaders who can eventually tear down those barriers, he said, schools must also create 'short-term, tactical solutions' that will foster women’s advancement right away."

  • bbc news logo feature

    Excerpt from BBC -- "It's not clear that we need all of the regulations that we needed in the past, now that we have these platforms that have reputation systems that have companies behind them that are sort of doing some of the things that we used to need the government for."

  • fast company logo feature

    Excerpt from Fast Co Labs -- “Arun Sundararajan, an expert on the sharing economy at New York University, is exploring measures that would capture the quality of life factors that appear to be increasingly important to workers. 'How much would I have to pay you to do this work instead of something you love?' he says. 'In dollar terms, that is the value that someone is applying to working only 30 hours a week so that they can spend more time with their kids. It’s crude, but I see that as a way of measuring the impact more completely.'”

    Excerpt from The New Yorker -- "Scott Galloway, a marketing professor at New York University’s Stern School of Business, told Marketplace that younger, hipper tech executives often show up at meetings jotting notes in a Moleskine instead of using a tablet."

  • CNBC logo feat

    Excerpt from CNBC -- "An important overlooked fact in the current debate is that the same players who invested in speed have also invested in big data and sophisticated predictive analytics. A player with the ability to discover buried, but exploitable, patterns is at a huge advantage over the significant majority who are not well positioned to find them, including regulators."

  • Next City logo

    Excerpt from Next City -- “'There’s this clear, growing demand for the efficient provision of government services, and Congress I think has tried to compete along the lines of [government] transfers,' economist Paul Romer, who has studied India with the NYU Stern Urbanization Project, told Next City. 'They wouldn’t say it this way, but I think their basic strategy has been to try to impede the movement from rural areas to urban areas.'”

  • wall street journal logo feature

    Excerpt from The Wall Street Journal -- "'The unit cost of financial intermediation appears to be higher today than it was in the 1960s, and about the same as it was around 1900,' writes Thomas Philippon, finance professor at New York University's Stern School of Business. Mr. Philippon said advances in information technology should lower the physical transaction costs of finance. 'In finance, however, the exact opposite happens,' he says."

  • barrons logo feature

    Excerpt from Barron's -- "So the ETF — whose top components include International Business Machines (IBM), Exxon Mobil (XOM) and 3M (MMM) — is akin to going 'long' the stocks of profitable, stable companies with high-quality earnings, while being 'short' a basket of stocks exhibiting the opposite of those qualities. The idea was developed by Cliff Asness, Andrea Frazzini and Lasse Pedersen."

  • marketwatch logo feature

    Excerpt from MarketWatch -- “'When [baby product manufacturers] need to launch a new product, they need to go to the influencers,' Ghose says. 'And mommy bloggers are obviously very influential.' Ghose says that while there haven’t been rigorous academic studies yet quantifying the impact of these influencers on sales, anecdotal evidence abounds, such as LeapFrog Enterprises Inc.’s (NYSE:LF) success during the holiday 2011 season promoting its LeapPad tablet through popular bloggers. The company said in its subsequent annual report that the LeapPad launch helped boost its net sales 5% from 2010 to 2011, to $455 million."

  • marketplace radio logo feature

    Excerpt from Marketplace -- "Tom Meyvis, a professor of marketing at the Stern School of Business at New York University, cites Brawny paper towel's sucessful handling of an image problem the brand had with its illustrated spokeman. 'The Wall Street Journal described him as a 70s porn star,' Meyvis says. But, Meyvis notes, that brand handled its image right–by taking baby steps. It slowly shrank the problem mustache, and character, until they were replaced by one a little more up to date."
