    Excerpt from Forbes -- "It never crossed my mind that I gravitated to startups because I thought more of my abilities than the value a large company would put on them. At least not consciously. But that’s the conclusion of a provocative research paper, Asymmetric Information and Entrepreneurship, that explains a new theory of why some people choose to be entrepreneurs. The authors’ conclusion -- Entrepreneurs think they are better than their resumes show and realize they can make more money by going it alone. And in most cases, they are right."

    Excerpt from Business Insider -- "'[Reference points] are used on price tags. These are used in advertising. This is used inside retail stores on signage.

    Excerpt from Strategy + Business -- "The approach Schilling takes with Quirky is a variant of the case study method — instead of companies, the cases here are the lives of great inventors. She examines their lives to uncover the common personality traits and 'foibles' that helped them see what others did not. Schilling argues that serial breakthrough innovators are different from the rest of us because they’re able to come up with groundbreaking innovations over and over again, rather than just once. And their innovations represent dramatic leaps, rather than incremental improvements."

    Excerpt from CNBC -- "Everybody, of course, looks back to the 1930s and the Smoot-Hawley tariff. And they tend to over-emphasize the importance of Smoot-Hawley. It was a bad thing; it certainly made things worse, but it wasn't the sole cause of the Great Depression in the 1930s. We aren't there yet, but what does worry me... is we could see escalation."

    Excerpt from BNN -- "I think we will and I think we should ... I have been arguing for this for a while now about the perils, the kinds of risks, that these social media platforms have posed to society. I think given the information coming out, I think we are going to see some concern and some regulation around these social media platforms. The details need to be worked out but I think not doing anything is not an option anymore."

That’s the topic of a new paper, 'Reputation Inflation,' from NYU’s John Horton and Apostolos Filippas, and CEO Joseph Golden. The paper argues that online platforms, especially peer-to-peer ones like Uber and Airbnb, are highly susceptible to ratings inflation because, well, it’s uncomfortable for one person to leave another a bad review."

Additionally, students don’t often have the experience of seeing the business on the ground (for example, an operating factory) and experience the customer behavior in different countries."

    Excerpt from Poets & Quants -- "In short, the ISP trip was an incredible, eye-opening whirlwind. While my body and sleep schedule have not yet recovered from the constant running around, I would not have changed a thing. I went on the trip with some very close friends but coming back, I know I have created more personal relationships with students and staff that I was previously only acquainted with. In the end, not only did I feel closer to the Stern community, but I had more pride for our school and every opportunity it has provided me. And even though we were in Hong Kong for less than five full days, the lessons learned and relationships created will last a lifetime."
