    Excerpt from The Atlantic -- "Galileo versus the Church, for fueling the myth that science and religion are natural enemies. But the universe doesn’t become less spiritual as we understand it better; in fact, the poetry in scientific truths flourishes with deeper understanding."

    Excerpt from Financial News -- “During the crisis, CLS saved the day by making it safe for dealers to put up one leg of a deal and yet be content waiting to receive the second leg of the transaction hours later. It is thanks to CLS that the FX market did not freeze up after Lehman, which happened in other financial markets.”

    Excerpt from Bloomberg -- "'The Greek parliament approved significant increases in taxes and reductions in pensions, which are likely to intensify the recession, and also approved selling a large swath of state assets to partially pay for its debt,' said Nicholas Economides, professor at Stern School of Business at New York University. The IMF and the EU are too far apart on the issue of debt relief to converge by the May 24 Eurogroup meeting, Economides said, 'therefore the likely outcome is an approval of an installment of the EU part of the Greek loan with the IMF’s position to be clarified at a later time.'"

    Excerpt from CityLab -- "For respondents who report that they regularly talk to their friends about whether property is a good investment, we find a strong relationship between their friends’ house price experiences and their own assessment whether property in their own zip code is a good investment."

    Excerpt from Clear Admit -- "We still have many top companies who partner with us and hire strong numbers of students every year. In fact, that list of companies is growing year over year. And it’s increasing in the tech space. Google and Amazon, in particular, have been increasing their hiring of Stern students, which is terrific. But we also have more and more students looking to do unique kinds of things outside of more traditional MBA recruiting. Because we have alumni in all kinds of interesting places, we are able to connect them."

    Excerpt from NPR -- "To see how quickly the rising tide of 'effective AI' may smash into daily life, consider the legal ramifications of machines behaving in ways we don't understand. How do we create regulations (i.e. robot law) when the possibility of robot decisions we don't understand must be included. As Dhar asks, 'Who is responsible for the actions of a robot that designs itself and learns to get better over time?' Better yet, who is responsible if a network of robots, acting in a way consistent with their design, carries out actions that turn dangerous — or even deadly?"

    Exerpt from CNBC -- "Eliminating forced labor in seafood is a monumental task that will require more from public and private actors. First, governments need to do more, both in consuming countries in North America and Europe, and in sourcing countries like Thailand. In the United States, Secretary of State John Kerry has launched an important new initiative, the Our Ocean Summit, aimed at protecting ocean resources. This initiative dovetails with new standards proposed by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration to include data reporting to ensure seafood traceability from harvest to import."

    Excerpt from Forbes -- "To increase casual interactions, everyone enters on the 12th floor. The first impression to hit you is the positive and productive energy—people seem genuinely happy. At the center of the top floor is a café and cafeteria, in some ways the heart of the office, with tables scattered around for drinking, eating, and impromptu meetings. Thirty screens mounted high around the center perimeter feature photos of the talent teams that work on each account, rotating along with client names and creative work highlights."

    Excerpt from Pew Research -- "The reason why all the regulatory scrutiny [thus far] has been from city agencies is because the most salient services involved – mobility and accommodation – have historically been governed at the local level. As I discuss in my book, there’s a misfit between regulatory interventions that were necessary in the past and the new models. So the conflict isn’t surprising. Nobody’s in the wrong – it’s just that we need to rethink and reinvent regulation, rather than trying to retrofit."
  • kathimerini logo feature
    Excerpt from Kathimerini -- "The IMF and the US now state that the Greek debt is unsustainable after its increase by 87 billion. With the July 2015 memorandum, the IMF proposed an extension of maturities of Greek obligations to Europe and a significant extension of the grace period in which Greece does not pay interest."

    Excerpt from The New York Times -- "They’re not so much agents as accomplices, new tools for ancient impulses, part of 'a long sequence of technological innovations that enable us to do what we want,' noted the social psychologist Jonathan Haidt, who wrote the 2012 best seller 'The Righteous Mind,' when we spoke last week. 'And one of the things we want is to spend more time with people who think like us and less with people who are different,' Haidt added. 'The Facebook effect isn’t trivial. But it’s catalyzing or amplifying a tendency that was already there.'"

    Excerpt from Barron's -- "Xavier Gabaix, a finance professor at New York University, has derived a crash-frequency formula that he believes captures a universal trait of all markets, not just equity markets or those in the U.S. According to that formula, the odds of a 12.8% crash in any given six-month period are 0.92%, almost as low as the actual frequency in the U.S. stock market over the last century."
  • marketplace radio logo feature
    Excerpt from Marketplace -- "The Japanese central bank is so desperate to spur growth that they’ve gone over to negative interest rates, and Japan has suggested it would like to devalue its currency to promote growth — which doesn’t sit well with the U.S. The aspect of Abenomics that calls for structural reforms and economic liberalization has been very slow to materialize, which NYU Stern Business School professor Gian Luca Clementi said is key to growing the country’s economy. 'There are lots of small banks that give loans on very dubious criteria, and lots of companies that are definitely not the most productive, but they are entrenched politically. [They] receive continuous financing for projects of dubious productivity,' he said. 'On the other hand, smaller entrepreneurs, younger entrepreneurs have a harder time getting financing.'"

    Excerpt from Fast Company -- "Failure to fix Airbnb's regulatory problems in New York and elsewhere would hurt the $25.5 billion-valued company’s prospects with future investors, public markets, and the public. 'The prospect of having to face regulatory risk questions every time they announce earnings, it’s just going to stymie the growth of the company,' says Arun Sundararajan, an NYU professor and the author of a recent book about the sharing economy."

    Excerpt from Business 2 Community -- "There’s a phenomenon known as the illusion of explanatory depth, and the idea is that there are certain things that we assume we understand much better than we do. If you ask someone how well can they can explain how a bicycle works on a scale of one to ten, people will between an eight and a ten out of ten."

    Excerpt from The Wall Street Journal -- "Academics have previously found a more significant two-day effect [of hedge fund investments on stocks], but that is for fast-moving day traders, not investors. Over a month, a study a few years ago by Stephen Brown of New York’s Stern School of Business and Christopher Schwarz of the University of California found no impact from 1999 to 2008."
  • new york times logo feature
    Excerpt from The New York Times -- "Most of us have no difficulty recognizing luck when it’s on conspicuous display, as when someone wins the lottery. But randomness often plays out in subtle ways, and it’s easy to construct narratives that portray success as having been inevitable. Those stories are almost invariably misleading, however, a simple fact that has surprising implications for public policy."
