    Excerpt from PolitiFact -- "At most, Trump might be able to argue that he has some fiduciary obligations to his employees, suggested Lawrence White, a professor at New York University’s Stern School of Business. That would be arguable 'to the extent that any bankruptcy -- which might have arisen if he had not availed himself of these loss carry-forward/carry-back opportunities -- would have converted them into unsecured claimants for any delayed wages or other benefits,' White said."

    Excerpt from BBC -- "I, too, worry about currency manipulation. I worry about chronic imbalances that are going to have to be unwound and I do worry about the international transmission of shocks. The question is whether, if we see certain things that we don't like about the architecture of the global system, do we take steps that basically risk pulling the whole house down?"

    Excerpt from The Economist -- "According to number-crunching by Adam Looney of the Treasury Department and Constantine Yannelis of New York University, non-traditional students made up more than half of all new borrowers from the federal government between 2004 and 2014. They accounted for fully 70% of those who defaulted within two years of starting repayments in 2011."

    Excerpt from Kitco News -- "Manipulation is not only bad, it is also illegal. Yes, it is often part of the game, a rigged part of the game. For over a decade that I have been developing empirical screens (as in this gold case), in order to assist in detecting this type of rigging. I am a believer in markets, but also know well (given my work across many markets) that they can be and have been abused."

    Excerpt from Bloomberg Quint -- "...I am hoping that the RBI and Modi government work out a market friendly solution for this problem rather than saying let’s just kick the can down the road, just like what Japan did in the 1990s, which is what Italy has done in the last 5 years, and I am worried that is what Germany is going to do right now. If we stand out and do the right thing, I think we can push the Indian growth rate above maybe even 10 percent."
  • huffington post logo feature
    Excerpt from The Huffington Post -- "Our present wide-open economy and the current orientation of our major corporations make our nation an excellent target for mercantilist exploitation. Although we like to imagine that we are in a world of free trade, the world that we live in is not like that. It is to a considerable extent, a world of mercantilism---a world in which many foreign governments do whatever it takes to make their industries succeed. Our vulnerability to these tactics can be traced to the doctrine of shareholder primacy, profit as the only corporate goal."

    Excerpt from Forbes -- "University programs that, with the support of surrounding cities and states, allow foreign entrepreneurs to stay in the U.S. show just how beneficial high-skilled immigration can be. Congress should facilitate growth and job-creation by raising the cap on high-skilled visas. But until it does this, entrepreneur-in-residence programs offer a great way to retain top foreign talent, and create wealth and job opportunities for Americans."

    Excerpt from Marketplace -- "'That seems like a very attractive return when government bonds give you 1.5 percent,' said Stijn Van Nieuwerburgh, a professor of real estate finance at New York University’s Stern School. He says investors are drawn to the U.S. because of its relatively stable economy and to Detroit for its rock-bottom real-estate prices."

'But if you just want to renew your prescription or you lost your eyeglasses, urgency or something, then this device is the solution.'"

    Excerpt from The Chronicle of Philanthropy -- "Fundraisers often suggest gift amounts to help guide donor decision-making. A new study on this practice, known as anchoring, suggests that low anchors may drag down giving more than high ones bring it up. Charities must find a balance when suggesting donation amounts, says Minah Jung, an assistant professor of marketing at New York University and an author of the study."

Facebook is killing it. It’s a space that Google really needs to be in.'"

    Excerpt from Bloomberg -- "Grexit is out of the question. I think it’s out of the question for two reasons. First of all, it’s going to be a disaster for Greece. And I think by now, the Europeans also think the same way. So I don’t think it’s going to happen. At the same time, when I look at the Greek government bonds, I still see premiums that show some such probability. But I think that it’s unwarranted. I don’t think that Grexit is in the cards. If I was advising the Greek government, I would tell them exactly what I told you a minute ago: cut the state sector, cut taxation, create the right investment environment, find a way to deal with non-performing loans. There are lots and lots of non-performing loans in Greece, and there has to be some way to securitize them, to find a way so that the banks get rid of them from their books and they can actually give loans to healthy businesses."

    Excerpt from The New York Times -- "Robert Engle, an economist at New York University who was awarded the Nobel Prize for his work on volatility and capital markets, has designed a model that ranks financial institutions in terms of their systemic risk. ... Since September, the bank’s risk, calculated on the basis of its leverage, has increased sharply relative to other comparable institutions, according to the NYU gauge. 'There is just a lot of risk for Deutsche Bank right now,' Mr. Engle said. 'We have been worried about European banks for quite a while.'"

    Excerpt from PolitiFact -- "[Risky mortgages], in turn, led to the 'end of a housing boom, a sharp decline in housing prices, widespread mortgage defaults, widespread mortgage securities defaults, and a lack of assets to cover the losses at nine large financial institutions -- Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac, Morgan Stanley, Merrill Lynch, Goldman Sachs, Bear Stearns, Lehman Brothers, the CitiCorp holding company, and the AIG holding company,' said Lawrence White, an economist at New York University’s Stern School of Business."
