    Excerpt from Bloomberg -- "The best thing about the American economy is that it is structurally flexible, so the private sector is actually adjusting pretty fast. But we need very heavy investment infrastructure, education, skills, and other things to try to bring the lower half of distribution up."

    Excerpt from The Huffington Post -- "The Stern School of Business has joined with Global Spiritual Life at NYU, with support from the Lenz Foundation, to introduce the NYU Mindfulness in Business Initiative. The first event of the year featured Dan Harris, best-selling author and co-anchor for ABC's Nightline. Being in business school, I expected Harris's recommendations for mindful living to consist of checklists and frameworks. Instead, he shared with us his path to meditation, and the clarity he's found as a result. He made no promises, but offered a convincing case about the value in stepping back and gaining the presence of mind to become aware of thoughts and impulses before acting on them."

    Excerpt from The Wall Street Journal -- "Iconic, charismatic leaders can excite investors, and boost innovation during their tenures. But the 'great man' approach can lead to stymied growth or worse, once the guy heads for the door, said Karen Brenner a professor at New York University Stern School of Business. 'You never want to let it get to a point that the company’s leader is seen as its core operational strength,' Prof. Brenner said."

    Excerpt from Bloomberg Businessweek -- "This combination, a more robust and resilient LIBOR for transactions that require a reference rate with a bank credit risk component and the development of an alternative reference rate for transactions like interest rate derivatives that don't, will strengthen our financial system and help undo some of the damage caused by earlier transgressions."

    Excerpt from Financial Times -- "At NYU Stern, MBA students work with growing businesses within New York City’s fashion industry through a masters workshop with the Council of Fashion Designers of America. Paired with designers, they advise on finance, product market strategies and business plans. MBA student Laura Musano recently completed the workshop, working on a project for handbag collection Kara. 'I really liked that it opened up two-way learning,' she says. 'Not only could we use our skills but it felt like we were really helping the business grow.'"

    Excerpt from Fox News -- "Alvin Lieberman, a marketing professor at NYU and director of the school’s entertainment, media, and technology program, sees fierce competition for The Players’ Tribune. 'Jeter has to fight among the 200-plus cable channels and the many thousands of social networks,' he told FoxNews.com. 'Will he make an impression? Yes. The question is, how long will it last?'"
  • new york times logo feature
    Excerpt from The New York Times -- "Indeed, scholars find that some of the most elemental differences between liberals and conservatives occur on the moral plane. In his now famous research, New York University’s Jonathan Haidt interviewed hundreds of people and surveyed tens of thousands more about their moral biases. He told outlandish stories (one involved a family eating its dog) and gauged his subjects’ immediate moral reactions. The differences were stark."

    Excerpt from Bloomberg Businessweek -- "'Our goal is to make it clear to those who are entering their career with MBAs that business is a place for them, and that they should be proud to be out,' says Matt Kidd, the executive director of Reaching Out MBA. So far, the business schools at Columbia, University of Chicago, Northwestern, Dartmouth, MIT, and NYU have all agreed to fund one of the scholarships, which will be called Reaching Out MBA fellowships."
  • politico logo feature
    Excerpt from Politico -- "An Internet roundtable was held focusing on the economics of the issue, and Chairman Tom Wheeler put forth an interesting question: 'Is there difference between prioritization and paid prioritization? Does the exchange for value change the economics?' he inquired in front of a panel of economists. It’s unclear if they got to the bottom of it, but Nicholas Economides, an NYU professor and executive director of the NET Institute, gave this answer: The ISPs have to prioritize their networks to run smoothly, he explained. 'The payment is the crucial thing because the payment can create disincentives that I think are perverse from the point of view of the public interest, but they are perfectly natural from the business point of view. From the business point of view, it makes perfect sense to create artificial scarcity and make more money.'"

    Excerpt from MyFoxNY -- "There's a lot of good that's come out of the 1999-2000 dot com bust. Ecommerce is what it is today because of what we have learned from the mistakes in the past. There is collateral damage. Sure, investors lost, but society benefited."

  • bloomberg logo feature
    Excerpt from Bloomberg -- "Yesterday’s gap was $9.23 billion, according to data compiled by Bloomberg. The shortfall reflects an estimate by Damodaran, the author of four books on company valuation, that Yahoo has $8.02 billion in cash. The discount is a sign of 'investor concerns, merited or not, that Yahoo’s management might do something senseless with the cash,' he wrote two days ago in a posting on his Musings on Markets blog."

  • greek reporter logo
    Excerpt from Greek Reporter -- "The strategy that leads Greece quickly and with certainty to growth and reduction of unemployment is simple. Greece borrows €5bil per year issuing new bonds and uses all the moneys in public investments. Greece does not put a single euro from these moneys in the general budget, and the money is not wasted to 'pay' the IMF, which would send inspectors to Greece even if it extends no further loans. With some attention and care, Greece can reach a 3-5% growth in 2015 and higher in 2016. And by the end of 2016, this growth would result in 600,000 new work positions."

    Excerpt from PBS NewsHour -- "Occupy Central has now become Occupy Hong Kong. As of tomorrow it’s likely to become Occupy larger than that. And if the — if local police, through threat and selective arrests, are unable to disperse these demonstrations, we’re likely to see a very significant violent crackdown."

    Excerpt from Bloomberg -- "'It’s six years after the crisis and they are still facing continued litigation, so if you were in that foxhole wouldn’t you do something?' said Roy Smith, a finance professor at New York University’s Stern School of Business and a former Goldman Sachs partner. 'You protect yourself by causing these restrictions.'"
  • project syndicate logo feature
    Excerpt from Project Syndicate -- "Global markets have not reacted for several reasons. For starters, central banks in advanced economies (the United States, the eurozone, the United Kingdom, and Japan) are holding policy rates near zero, and long-term interest rates have been kept low. This is boosting the prices of other risky assets such as equities and credit."
  • bloomberg logo feature
    Excerpt from Bloomberg -- "[PayPal] has been the crown jewel. This is what CEOs like. They like to be diversified with a number of assets in case one property underperforms, but here's the deal. Investors don't need CEOs to diversify for them. They can diversify on their own. They need to be accountable for one business with one core mission and one core brand and let the best assets go out on the marketplace and get the shareholder return they deserve. The biggest winners here are Icahn because he's going to do a victory lap, and not only that, the people who work specifically on PayPal who will now get options on PayPal stock."

    Excerpt from CNC World -- "Tim Cook is gonna have a good legacy, I may even say great legacy. In the sense that a lot what we are seeing is still inventions during Steve Jobs' presence... technology takes a while for products to come out, so what we are seeing are possibly a lot of influences from Steve Jobs, but I wouldn't take credit away from someone like Tim Cook, I'm pretty positive that he will have an amazing legacy as well, especially with wearable technology."
  • cnbc logo feature
    Excerpt from CNBC -- "I think that financials, especially the banks, are very well capitalized and I think that going into the stress test process in the next few months, I think banks will surprise with their results and I think that the Fed will give them that approval to start increasing their payout ratios. It'll increase their dividend and I think that'll pop the stock in the next 1-2 years. So I'm very bullish on financials going into this market."

    Excerpt from mbaMission -- "In the application itself, when you’re talking about résumés and things like that, again, people should really try to highlight what they have achieved and quantify those results. Answer questions that may be out there, and if you have been unemployed, take the time to explain what happened and what you were doing in that time. Don’t just leave us guessing. … Help us understand."

    Excerpt from Marketplace -- "'Anything that starts to erode or challenge the 90-day window could be disaster for them,' says Sam Craig, director of the Entertainment, Media and Technology program at NYU. According to Craig, if just 10 percent of theatergoers stayed home, it would mean a loss of more than a billion dollars in ticket sales."
