    Excerpt from The Japan Times -- "Asker’s data showed the extent to which productivity is positively correlated to sales is different from company to company. However, 'the important message is that companies should be doing everything they can to maximize productivity,' he said."

    Excerpt from The Wall Street Journal -- "'These guys have established quite a lot of credibility,' said Alexander Ljungqvist, a professor of finance and entrepreneurship at New York University's Stern School of Business who has written about short sellers. 'Investors clearly are taking them seriously,' he said."

    Excerpt from The Wall Street Journal -- “In the 20th century, what had been for the rich got offered to ordinary people,” noted financial historian Richard Sylla of New York University’s Stern School of Business. He expects selling by aging Americans to be offset by buying from fast-growing developing countries and says that free international capital flows have been among the biggest advances of the past 125 years."

    Excerpt from Marketplace -- "There are successful businesses that sell just one product. But most are in markets where it’s easy to predict demand - like steel. So, says J.P. Eggers, an assistant professor of management and organization at NYU’s Stern School of Business, 'They are, in general, able to deeply understand what their customers are after, deliver what they want, how they want it, at the price that they want it.' But there are plenty of stores that sell mostly cupcakes. Eggers says it’s unlikely they’ll all go away. He says when the cupcake bubble burst, Crumbs found itself with some odd store locations."

    Excerpt from Forbes India -- "If you are an investor, you have to make your own judgement. The key to success is not whether you can invest like Warren Buffett, but whether you have an investment philosophy that you are comfortable with."

    Excerpt from Environment & Energy Publishing -- "'The idea is to remind the consumer or educating about this industry's positive spillover effects on the society, like job creation, clean energy, etc.,' Erdem said. The education effort can't hurt if industry investments 'may result in even higher electricity charges. ... They don't want a backlash from the consumers so they want to prepare the ground for that.'"

    Excerpt from The Huffington Post -- "'This suggests that we may be able to boost our own levels of motivation and performance by either forming rivalries or harnessing the ones we already have,' study researcher Gavin Kilduff, of NYU's Stern School of Business, said in a statement. 'It might also get us to think about whether other individuals in our lives may view us as their rivals.'"

    Excerpt from Bloomberg Businessweek -- "Securing a foothold in a few major cities could help ease Uber’s way in places that are trying to shut it down. And the company’s public political battles may turn out to be useful in attracting new customers and supporters. In the end, argues Arun Sundararajan, a professor at New York University’s Stern School of Business, 'The more they sort of popularize themselves, the stronger their argument becomes.'"

    Excerpt from The Huffington Post -- "Political ideology plays a role in shopping behavior, according to Vishal Singh, a marketing professor at NYU’s Stern School of Business who has studied the topic. Singh’s research shows that conservatives are more likely to pick more established name brands over generics and are slower to adopt new products. They also tend to favor domestic over foreign beers. These trends are consistent with attitudes associated with conservatism, such as being skeptical of new experiences, Singh said."

    Excerpt from NPR -- "I think what's striking about this particular wave of changes that we're seeing... is that they're affecting familiar services that we're used to and familiar real-world asset-based services: point-to-point accommodations, short-term transportation, dining, probably, in the future, healthcare and energy, and I'm struck by the characterization of these platforms as being equivalent to a scam because I sort of see them as... important future engines of economic growth."

    Excerpt from NPR -- "'The idea that things are built on top of government infrastructure or are taking advantage of public resources for profit isn't anything new,' he says. 'A lot of the capitalist economy is built on government infrastructure.' Telephone carriers and private garages build their businesses on top of public resources. If a mobile app can efficiently transfer something as small as a parking spot, Sundararajan says, that's innovation."
  • The New York Times
    Excerpt from The New York Times -- "The increase could also be the result of interest in the auction itself, said David L. Yermack, a professor at New York University’s Stern School of Business. 'Just the fact that there was such broad demand would tend to push up the value of Bitcoin,' he said."

    Excerpt from The Wall Street Journal -- "Because most B-school applicants come from the working world, the personal statements help admissions officers understand why a candidate is pursuing a particular path, said Isser Gallogly, Stern's assistant dean of M.B.A. admissions."

    Excerpt from The Huffington Post -- "In an interview to the New Yorker, Professor Arun Sundararajan of N.Y.U's Stern School of Business shared that 'there's a mind-set that consumers are doing this just to save money, but I think that what's really compelling about the sharing economy is the variety and expansion of choices that it offers. Instead of being tied to owning one car, I can drive twenty different ones. So I expect this will expand consumption, rather than shrink it.'"

    Excerpt from Project Syndicate -- "Like individuals, corporations, and other private firms that rely on bankruptcy procedures to reduce an excessive debt burden, countries sometimes need orderly debt restructuring or reduction. But the ongoing legal saga of Argentina’s fight with holdout creditors shows that the international system for orderly sovereign-debt restructuring may be broken."

    Excerpt from Bloomberg -- "While this hypothetical trek is obviously an exaggeration, the NBER report shows there is often bad news on the way from companies which schedule shareholder meetings far from their headquarters and major airports. Their share prices tend to suffer afterward, according to the paper 'Evasive Shareholder Meetings' by Yuanzhi Li of Temple University and David Yermack of New York University that was highlighted in the July issue of the NBER Digest."

    Excerpt from ECNS -- "'If growth dips below 7 percent, the markets will be a little scared, but the reason is either they don't have the information or they don't process it to be able to tell whether it's a transition or a trend. 'A trend means the economy keeps going down. A transition means it's a low, and growth will return with a more sustainable pattern,' Spence said during an interview on the sidelines of the Jinjialing Fortune Forum 2014 held in Qingdao, Shandong province, on June 21."

    Excerpt from Marketplace -- "In order to draw people to the site, Yahoo needs strong, unique content – different from what Netflix or Hulu is offering, says Sam Craig, a professor at NYU’s Stern School of Business. 'It’s a crowded marketplace out there and unless you have something with an identity, people aren’t going to come to it,' he explains."

    Excerpt from Bloomberg -- "Technically, without the poison pill, if he can find a way to get himself back in a controlling share, he can find a way to get back in. Obviously, the fact that this has been one of the most entrenched CEOs in US corporate history who was actually ousted by his board full of friends suggests there's no way they're going to let that happen without a very serious fight at this point in time."

    Excerpt from Cosmopolitan -- "Economists call it the denomination effect: When you have small bills, you're more apt to spend them on little stuff. On the other hand, you wouldn't break a $50 or a $100 bill to buy a pack of gum or a soda."

    Excerpt from Financial Times -- "The excursion to West Point – on a sprawling pastoral campus by the Hudson River – was part of Stern’s leadership development initiative, a supplemental MBA programme involving workshops, guest speakers and field trips. Caitlin Weaver, the director of the initiative, says the missions give students an opportunity to practise leadership skills such as 'setting a vision, communicating a vision and managing conflict' within a group. 'We chose an activity that leverages the deep traditions and leadership practices within the military.'"

    Excerpt from Charlie Rose -- “Our point is that this situation is one that is not a stable equilibrium, is not even a stable disequilibrium. It’s an unstable disequilibrium. Take for example the eurozone. You cannot have just a monetary union without banking, political, economic, fiscal union. Either you move towards more integration or you’re going to have more fragmentation and disintegration. So the situation we face right now in the global economy, same in the eurozone, is of an unstable disequilibrium, therefore a new abnormal, that cannot be sustained.”

    Excerpt from The Villager -- "Affordable housing’s presence in the same building would not likely affect the ability of a condo buyer to secure a mortgage, according to Lawrence J. White, an N.Y.U. economics professor and expert on the mortgage industry. 'It seems odd that Fannie would not buy an individual mortgage loan from an originator by an otherwise perfectly suitable borrower who had all the requisite conditions,' he said in a phone interview."

    Excerpt from LinkedIn -- "Finance professor David Yermack demonstrated that firm performance suffers when CEOs have access to a corporate jet for personal travel. Guess who uses that privilege most often? CEOs with membership in exclusive golf clubs far from their homes."
