    Excerpt from Stanford Political Journal -- "We have to push governments to behave better and to protect their people. On a parallel track, companies need to move away from a policing model where they conduct random spot-check audits of some of their factories.They do this as a kind of risk mitigation and sometimes as a public relations gesture to say ‘we’re doing something,’ and move to a more holistic look at how do we actually get at the problem."

    Excerpt from Forbes -- "[Ghemawat's] message was that despite the fall in the Yuan, the Chinese stock market, and the labor rates in China, don’t count China out in the shifting power of world trade. In his presentation he contrasted world trade in 2013 and his forecast for world trade in 2040."

    Excerpt from Politico -- "Households with the lowest FICO scores had the highest willingness to borrow. Despite lower-cost capital, banks were reluctant to lend to these potential borrowers. The authors estimate that a one percentage point reduction in the costs of funds for banks raises optimal credit limits by only $127 for consumers with low FICO scores. … A bank’s propensity to lend is negatively correlated with a household’s propensity to borrow (i.e., the more likely a household is to borrow, the less likely a bank is to grant additional credit)."

    Excerpt from Investor Wired -- "The idea of a volatility index, and financial instruments based on such an index, was first developed and described by Prof. Menachem Brenner and Prof. Dan Galai in 1986. Professors Brenner and Galai published their research in the academic article 'New Financial Instruments for Hedging Changes in Volatility,' which appeared in the July/August 1989 issue of Financial Analysts Journal."

  • cnn logo feature
    Excerpt from CNN -- "[Tsipras is] attempting to make a government with one coalition partner, and extreme, right-wing party called Independent Greeks... Its main platform is to be against the deal with Europe, so it's a kind of paradox that Mr. Tsipras is making a government with a sworn enemy of that deal. And I think he would have been much stronger in negotiating with the Europeans if he had made a much more broad coalition of the pro-European forces into his government."

    Excerpt from Bloomberg -- "I think people have been tired of the whole situation... Day after day, they are hearing bad news, and they had put all their hopes on Tsipras in January and he made a huge U-turn. So people are now disappointed, but the absence of a very good political alternative from the center right made Tsipras win."

    In a new study, Professor Johannes Stroebel of the NYU Stern School of Business, Sumit Agarwal of the National University of Singapore, Souphala Chomsisengphet of the Office of the Comptroller of Currency and Neale Mahoney of the University of Chicago Booth School of Business find that government policies aimed at stimulating the economy by reducing banks’ cost of funds, so that they will extend more credit to households, are relatively ineffective.

    Excerpt from Chicago Tribune -- "'Look at the symbolism,' Alter said, 'or how it sounds. Does it sound mellifluous or otherwise really appealing?' In other words, does it sound like the thing it represents?"

  • pbs newshour logo feature
    Excerpt from PBS NewsHour -- "No, capitalism is not the culprit [for poverty]. Capitalism, when it’s allowed to do its work, some of us would say work its magic, it has a tremendous ability to raise living levels for the people who live under that system. That doesn’t mean it’s perfect, but I think to sort of say that capitalism is the problem, let’s get rid of it, as the pope may be hinting, is to throw the baby out with the bathwater."

    Excerpt from MarketWatch -- "Kim Schoenholtz, who teaches economics at New York University, will look for clues from the Fed chief on what data will influence the way the U.S. central bank behaves. Data dependency has been the mantra for the Fed this year, he notes. In the wake of the financial market turmoil, data may start to shift in significant ways and how the Fed will view developments is key, he said. Schoenholtz thinks the Fed will stay on the sidelines this week."

    Excerpt from The Washington Post -- "New York University’s Langone part-time MBA program in the Stern School of Business also attracts a diverse array of students, according to Alison Goggin, executive director of MBA admissions. She mentioned a student who came from the beauty industry and now works for Google. A professional dancer recently applied as well. Another example was a doctor who wants to run his or her own practice or become a hospital administrator. 'You don’t have to have taken business classes or quantitative classes or come from a quantitative job to be admissible for the program,' she said."
  • new yorker logo feature
    Excerpt from The New Yorker -- "Ultimately, the mob myth depends on psychological distance, a term coined by the New York University psychologist Yaacov Trope to describe the phenomenon of mental distancing that takes place when we separate ourselves from events, people, emotions, or concepts. In some cases, that distance comes naturally. As painful events recede into the past, our perceptions soften; when we physically remove ourselves from emotionally disturbing situations, our emotions cool. In other cases, we need to deliberately cultivate distance—to 'gain perspective.' Trope likens it to the old cliché of missing the forest for the trees: you can wander around in the trees forever or, through training or external intervention, realize that you need to step back to see the full vista."

  • bloomberg logo new
    Excerpt from Bloomberg -- "It’s unlikely that La’Zooz will displace such established companies as Uber and Gett because its decentralized nature and virtually nonexistent marketing budget could make it seem unreliable, said Arun Sundararajan, a business professor at New York University whose recent research has focused on the sharing economy. 'There are limits to how far a completely decentralized system like this could go,' he said. 'People will still pay for better logistics, a more trusted system—those are still things that are better done by a centralized platform.'"

    Excerpt from Commercial Observer -- "'The CMBS market is very hot. I’m not sure why now would be the right time to' securitize leases, said Stijn Van Nieuwerburgh, director of the Stern Center for Real Estate Finance Research at New York University. Mr. Van Nieuwerburgh said that while securitizing commercial leases is theoretically possible, he fails to see the 'business logic' behind it and questions the appetite for these exotic investments."

    Excerpt from US News -- "'It's a complex global economic situation,' Nouriel Roubini, a professor at New York University's Stern School of Business and chairman of consultancy firm Roubini Global Economics, said earlier this month while attending an international economic conference in Italy. 'Certainly, China is slowing down. Emerging markets are slowing down. This has led to global financial market volatility – a tightening of financial conditions.'"

    Excerpt from Institutional Investor -- "As the market continues to grow, nonbank originators have the potential to collectively create systemic risk. 'The biggest problem is that they are not banks, and they aren’t as heavily regulated, and our usual defenses of bank regulations and supervision and consumer protection aren’t as strong for those types of institutions,' says Van Nieuwerburgh."

    Excerpt from Bloomberg -- "The debate showed that Mr. Tsipras believes that he was successful in the negotiation with the EU, despite the resulting capital controls, reversal of growth to a significant recession in 2015, and severe losses of the public’s money invested in Greek banks,' said Nicholas Economides, a professor of economics at Stern School of Business, in New York. 'Neither candidate committed on specific ways to adjust or modify the agreement and reduce its severity since it was signed at the worst possible point in time for Greece.'"
  • cctv logo
    Excerpt from CCTV -- "It's important to note this is a very long-term enterprise for China. They started SOE reforms in the 1990s, shed something like 25 million jobs. So this is not something for 2015, but something we'll see moving forward. The government's target is for 2020. What they can do now is start to put discipline on managers, and that's why they're trying to increase the amount of shares in Chinese SOEs that are publicly traded. They think they can use that as a tool to... influence managers to focus on profitability and to be more efficient with their asset use... Everything they do on that side is going to be very handy for the Chinese economy."
