    Excerpt from The Wall Street Journal -- "Negative rates? You rub your eyes and search your memory. You can recall no precedent. And if you consult the latest edition of 'A History of Interest Rates' (2005) by Sidney Homer and Richard Sylla, you will find none. A recent check with Mr. Sylla confirms the impression. Today’s negative bond yields, he says, are the first in at least 5,000 years."

    Excerpt from Bloomberg -- "A question I often ask companies: 'If tomorrow you stopped growing, would you be able to make money on your existing business?' And I think the answer is no for Uber, if tomorrow, the game came to steady state. This is a business where they're giving away rides. What it costs me to go from where I live to Newark airport is $15. What it used to cost me on a cab is $55. There is no way with that $15 that that driver is making enough money to cover the cost of maintaining his car. This is not a sustainable, long-term business. Something has to change."

    Excerpt from The Atlantic -- "'Consumers are jaded about advertising in a way they weren’t several decades ago,' says Adam Alter, an associate professor of marketing at New York University’s Stern School of Business, via email. 'It is harder to appeal to them than it used to be, and they tend to see through overt marketing pitches.' That has in turn led to a new arsenal of branding tactics. 'Companies have had to learn subtlety,' Alter says."
  • Anindya Ghose on Craigslist and the Rise of STDs
    New research from NYU Stern Professor Anindya Ghose and Emory University Professor Vilma Todri introduces a unique digital attribution framework to measure the effectiveness of display advertising on a consumer’s likelihood to search for a brand or product, and ultimately, make a purchase.

    Excerpt from Bloomberg -- "The risk is really interesting because the banks in China are owned by the government. They're state-owned enterprises. Much of the loans are to state-owned enterprises or to municipal governments. And so, in many ways, all this risk is essentially guaranteed by the government. So you might think there's no risk at all. But really, it's the government that bears that risk, and the government bears risks of trillions of dollars of loans. And unless there is better risk management by the banks and by other institutions, this risk is going to surface and be another negative factor in the Chinese growth puzzle."

    Excerpt from Marketplace -- "The release of a seemingly lackluster version could also end up benefitting Apple in at least one way, according to Anindya Ghose, a professor of information technology at NYU’s Stern School of Business. 'It’s a very smart experiment by Apple to test the true extent of their loyal base,' Ghose said. 'Sometimes, in the long scheme of things, these price experimentations are a great way for a company — even as brilliant as Apple — to be able to infer market appetite for future renditions of the same product.'"

    Excerpt from CFO -- "'It’s a response to very detailed questions of companies about the classification of certain cash flows in the cash flow statement. The transactions are very specific and infrequent,' he added. In Lev’s view, FASB’s attempt to improve cash-flow accounting by adding rules rather than creating a system that rests on broad general principles 'increases GAAP complexity.'"

  • new york times logo feature
    Excerpt from The New York Times -- "The psychologist Jonathan Haidt and others have shown that our moral stances strongly correlate with the degree of activation of those brain areas that generate a sense of disgust and revulsion. According to Haidt, reason provides an after-the-fact explanation for moral decisions that are preceded by inherently reflexive positive or negative feelings. Think about your stance on pedophilia or denying a kidney transplant to a serial killer. Long before you have a moral position in place, each scenario will have already generated some degree of disgust or empathy."

    Excerpt from The New York Times -- "Some argue that money in politics doesn’t matter. That’s true in the sense that when both sides spend equally, their efforts tend to be mutually offsetting. But that’s why the current opportunity is unique. Democratic donors, who have already been giving generously, have both the means and the inclination to pay for an advertising blitz that Republicans probably cannot match this time around."

At Stern, we’ve got the Fed, Madison Avenue, Wall Street and Silicon Alley all within walking distance of campus."

    Excerpt from Bloomberg -- "'There are people who just don’t want to hear about the possibility that they didn’t do it all themselves,' Frank says. Mild-mannered and self-effacing, he isn’t about to tell the rich 'you didn’t build that,' as Obama did (and likely regretted). Frank’s new book, Success and Luck: Good Fortune and the Myth of Meritocracy, is a study in diplomacy. Combining memoir with academic research, it’s an earnest argument that all of us—even the rich—would be better off recognizing how luck can lead to success."
