    Excerpt from The Wall Street Journal -- "We really inherited a world where the United States’ standing was seriously diminished. To me, the thing that she did most effectively was to lead the administration’s efforts to restore U.S. leadership. And that continues to be an important part of her legacy."

    Excerpt from The New York Times -- "'A lot of commerce begins with Google and has for the last decade,' said Arun Sundararajan, a professor at the New York University Stern School of Business. 'They have converted this into an incredibly profitable advertising business. But I’ve seen them make steps to get closer to the actual retail process.'"

    Excerpt from TIME -- "The fight against al-Shabab in East Africa is a regional effort. With 3,664 people deployed, Kenya provides fewer personnel to the UN-backed African Union Mission in Somalia than Uganda, Ethiopia or Burundi do. Yet it is Kenya that has borne the brunt of al-Shabab’s attacks outside Somalia. Since 2012, the group has killed over 600 people in Kenya."

    Excerpt from The Guardian Nigeria -- "By analyzing the product characteristics (short versus long life), customer population (degree of heterogeneity or diverse makeup), and the size of the donor’s budget, Taylor and Xiao found that for long shelf life products, such as ACTs (with a 24 to 36-month life from the factory to expiration), donors should only offer a purchase subsidy. In contrast, if a product has a short shelf life, a sufficiently large donor budget and a diverse customer population, it is optimal to offer a sales subsidy in addition to a purchase subsidy."
  • financial times logo feature
    Excerpt from Financial Times -- "'You can buy something for half a million, not show a passport and ship it. Plenty of people are using it for laundering,' Mr Roubini, a passionate art collector, told a panel hosted by the FT at Davos in January."
  • racked logo
    Excerpt from Racked -- "Pure-play e-commerce can scale faster than brick-and-mortar, but then there’s a certain friction. The moment you are on Amazon’s radar, they will begin to look into your category. One of the most impactful ways to market a brand to somebody is to offer them a great in-store experience."
  • The New York Times
    Excerpt from The New York Times -- "Cecchetti & Schoenholtz argue that 'zero matters' in macroeconomics; specifically, both the zero almost-lower bound on interest rates and downward wage rigidity make the case that deflation or for that matter very low inflation is a bad thing."
  • australian logo feature
    Excerpt from The Australian -- "The study, by the University of Western Australia’s Raymond da Silva Rosa and Michael Kingsbury and New York University’s David Yermack, found that creep provisions were seldom used to take one shareholder’s interest beyond the 50 per cent mark that delivers majority control. Instead, most creeping acquisitions lifted the shareholder’s stake to between 20 per cent and 30 per cent."
  • metromba logo
    Excerpt from MetroMBA -- "The center‘s research will focus on relationships among recruitment companies based in South Asia and construction firms doing business in the Arabian Gulf. The goal of the project is to better understand the incentives and pressures that exist at different points in the chain that are contributing to violations of migrant workers’ rights. The Center expects to publish a report with findings and recommendations in early 2016."

  • bbc news logo feature
    Excerpt from BBC -- "Greece is running out of money. It may have enough money to pay the IMF this week and pay salaries and pensions this week, but there is doubt whether that's possible next week and thereafter...the real question is, what is going to happen once there is no more money coming from outside. The various sources of money inside have been exhausted. Mr. Varoufakis has to explain a credible plan through which Greece is going to meet its obligations."

    Excerpt from NPR -- "[With cash] you see the amount. It's written on the bank note...in the absence of actually seeing that amount, you don't have a strong memory trace."

  • OZY logo
    Excerpt from OZY -- "'Putting the right information in front of the right people sounds really easy — but it’s really hard to do,' says Prasanna Tambe, professor of information, operations and management sciences at NYU’s Stern School of Business. Which explains why Frei and Mader’s firm, the Seattle-based Smartsheet, founded a decade ago, is suddenly having its moment, slap-bang in the middle of the business world’s productivity zeitgeist."
  • new york post logo feature
    Excerpt from The New York Post -- "'The weak jobs report this morning was surprising — even if in line with some other weaker economic data published as of late and the reality that a stronger dollar is hurting exports,' said New York University economics professor Joe Foudy."
  • the guardian logo feature
    Excerpt from The Guardian -- "High-end experiences, Alter points out, are increasingly devoid of choice: just as at the dawn of the automotive era, Henry Ford dictated that Americans could drive any color of black Model T, at the fanciest restaurants in New York, people pay extravagant sums to eat tasting menus dictated by top chefs. 'You want the producer to make some of these decisions for you,' Alter says. Luxury is found in limitations. 'There’s something comforting in knowing that for a very high-end product that it’s going to be curated for you by an expert,' Alter says. 'I would never let anyone curate a $5 meal for me.'"

    Excerpt from Fox Business -- "Well, they are receiving only enough money to make sure they're not going to default in the short run, but there is not yet an agreement between Greece and the troika. And if an agreement has not been reached in the next few weeks, you could have a Greek accident... I think the risk of a Greek accident is still large because the two sides are negotiating, but they are very, very far apart."
  • time magazine logo feature
    Excerpt from TIME -- "It’s clear that Obama and Netanyahu don’t trust or like each other. But the widening divide between these countries can’t be reduced to a personality conflict between leaders. Differences in the interests and worldviews of the two governments are becoming more important."
  • the verge logo
    Excerpt from The Verge -- "A choice of just two, even three, providers isn’t enough to create a competitive market that will keep a check on prices, said Nicholas Economides, an economics professor at New York University who studies telecommunications. 'The only competition that remains is between telephone internet service providers and cable internet service providers — if you have it,' Economides said. 'That’s the real problem, and that’s why we don’t have enough competition and higher prices.'"
