    Excerpt from Sourcing Journal -- "Fashion brands can combat consumer fatigue and turn it into excitement. To do that though, they need to better utilize creativity as a means to solving consumer-centered problems that are extracted from contemporary culture. For some brands, this needs to be addressed at the business level to bridge the gap between their operations and creative teams. For others, it needs to be executed properly and manifest itself in new form in front of the consumer. It can take the form of consumer-centered packaging/grouping, communicated in a context that stays as close to reality as possible, and activated via signs and codes that are authentic and flexible. If beauty can do this, so can fashion."

    Excerpt from The New York Times -- "...despite the attention paid to the study on how much the first lady was worth to a brand — 'I have been publishing for 25 years,' said David Yermack, the author of the study and a professor of finance at the N.Y.U. Stern School of Business, 'and nothing has compared to the interest in this' — it wasn’t ultimately about revenue generation."

    Excerpt from Medill Reports Chicago -- "There are a lot of unclear definitions in the Act, like who is required to register as a swap dealer, Subrahmanyam said. He said the main understanding was that it should be market makers, who both sell and buy swaps, but this definition, he contends, is too vague. Moreover, he said an 'end-user exception' in the Act is unclear, which is that people who use swaps to hedge rather than to speculate are exempted from the regulation."

    Excerpt from Bloomberg -- "'I've always felt that Lyft's lower valuation gives them a lot more options than Uber; they can lose money for a longer period of time,' said Arun Sundararajan, a professor at New York University's business school. 'Lyft has held its own and grown dramatically in the face of the Uber onslaught. So I think raising another round is probably easier for Lyft than it was in the last round, whereas for Uber, it's likely harder.'"

    Excerpt from Portland Press Herald -- “When CEOs or board members or senior executives step into the breach to express purely personal opinions, they become lightning rods for an array of competing and contrasting interest groups. Some brands court controversy. But L.L. Bean? I don’t think so.”

    Excerpt from TIME -- "First, as Europeans began to sell off their American stocks and bonds, he shut down the New York Stock Exchange on July 31, 1914, for nearly four months. 'If he hadn’t done that there might have been much more panic selling,' says Richard E. Sylla, a financial historian and professor emeritus at NYU Stern School of Business. 'That’s what his major accomplishment was — avoiding the potential for a much worse financial panic in 1914. The dollar weakened a lot, but thanks to McAdoo’s policies, it strengthened a lot by November.'"

    Excerpt from The New York Times -- "Mr. Horton concluded that when forced to pay more in wages, many employers were hiring more productive workers, so that the overall amount they spent on each job changed far less than the minimum-wage increase would have suggested. The more productive workers appeared to finish similar work more quickly."

    Excerpt from New York Magazine -- "Dunning, a social psychologist, is one of the lead authors of 'Unskilled and Unaware of It: How Difficulties In Recognizing One’s Incompetence Lead to Inflated Self-Assessments,' an article in the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology based on the results of a study he and a student, Justin Kruger, conducted at Cornell in 1999. As the title suggests, what they found was the existence of a cognitive bias in which the less able people are, the more likely they are to overestimate their abilities."

    Excerpt from Forbes -- "What is the cost of shareholder activism? The impact of the stock market on investment has been quantified in a brilliant study by economists from the Stern School of Business and Harvard Business School, Alexander Ljungqvist, Joan Farre-Mensa, and John Asker, entitled 'Corporate Investment and Stock Market Listing: A Puzzle.' The study compared the investment patterns of public companies and privately held firms. The study found that 'keeping company size and industry constant, private US companies invest nearly twice as much as those listed on the stock market: 6.8 per cent of total assets versus just 3.7 per cent.'"

    Excerpt from Poets & Quants -- "Stern has a couple of different retail courses, a specific luxury marketing class as well, and a speaker series which Carr runs. 'At NYU Stern, we have a really strong understanding of our unique geographic advantage. New York is the fashion capital of the world. Anyone who’s anyone is here, whether they’re an American company or an Asian company. If you don’t have a presence here, you won’t make it globally,' Carr says. 'So given that everyone is here, we have a great opportunity to bring in speakers.' ... Li has taken several electives in the luxury marketing track already, including the experiential seminar, and believes that they’ve prepared her well for her internships. 'It really gave me a good sense of luxury retail operations, how the different functions play together to form the company and how the company would run on a day-to-day basis,' she says."

    Excerpt from The Native Society -- "There are endless ways to contribute to the world, and the world needs many sorts of talents. All I can do is try to find my own way to contribute. At this point, the one thing I’m sure of is that I draw strength from the people around me. I’m honored to be part of a discipline full of such dedicated and talented people. So I do my best to bring people together and make a whole greater than the sum of its parts. Part of that is being there when I’m called on in unexpected ways, being open to new things, and being willing to leave my comfort zone. I try to take a 'never say no' approach to work and life."

    Excerpt from Poets & Quants -- "Williams’ philosophies are grounded in a successful career that includes designing over 100 products and holding 30 patents. Like any great teacher, Williams is simply looking to unlock and magnify the potential talents of his pupils. 'When students start believing that their fundamental purpose is to alter the status quo, rather than preserve it, their motivation and mindset starts to change,' he observes. 'They begin to see opportunities beyond what others have defined as limits.'"

They find a marked decline in corporate capital investment relative to profits and valuation, starting around the year 2000, and a big increase in payouts to shareholders (dividends and buybacks, although the increase has mostly been in buybacks)."
  • atlantic logo feature
    Excerpt from The Atlantic -- "The researchers, Stephen Brown, Yan Lu, Sugata Ray, and Melvyn Teo, began with a hypothesis about a psychological trait called “sensation seeking.” As they write, the trait is 'defined by the seeking of varied, novel, complex, and intense sensations and experiences, and the willingness to take physical, social, legal, and financial risks for the sake of such experience.' Major sensation seekers, in other words, are the sort of people who probably make for good Hollywood protagonists, and they are more likely to step outside the law. Among other correlates established by earlier research, people with the trait are less careful with spending and engage in risky driving. So when their disposable incomes start to swell, the researchers reasoned, they are more likely to stop by a Ferrari showroom than a Subaru lot."
