    Excerpt from CCTV -- "There are hundreds of thousands of people who are coming in illegally and there is no set standard mechanism to admit them. ... They're trying to go to the northern European countries, some of them though get stuck in Greece and Italy. It's a huge problem."
  • Agenda FT logo
    Excerpt from Agenda -- "As corporations are increasingly pressed to address environmental and social problems related to their business, the question arises whether there is enhanced compensation disclosure that could help address a pressing, generally acknowledged, societal issue: income inequality and stagnating economic mobility. While there may be little consensus that senior executive pay is too high, it is easier to find consensus on the lack of shared prosperity, and a ratio does little to capture the ethical implications of neglecting pay and other policy considerations on workers’ lives."
  • Linkedin logo
    Excerpt from LinkedIn -- "At the heart of this year’s meetings is the evolving nature of technology, how it is uniting the world in some ways and fracturing it in others. There’s always a presumption that people will adapt to whatever the world throws at them, and that’s true… until it isn’t. Each revolution is bigger and faster than the previous one, and our current tech revolution is the biggest and fastest one we’ve seen. We know technology can be a force for both good and bad; what matters is how it’s channeled."

    Excerpt from the Forté Foundation blog -- "Being an efficient, high performer is crucial but will only get you so far. Cultivating relationships and building advocates in the workplace is where you truly establish value and position yourself to be indispensable."
  • wall street journal logo feature
    Excerpt from The Wall Street Journal -- "Mr. Romer’s breakthrough was to identify the unique characteristics of ideas, information and knowledge to growth: Unlike a machine or a worker, an idea, once conceived, can be reproduced and shared endlessly for free. The determinant of growth then is both how many ideas a society creates, and how quickly and efficiently they are distributed. The printing press, telegraph and universal education were all formidable innovations in the production and dissemination of ideas. Today, the computer, Internet, open-source collaboration and urbanization offer staggering potential for generating new ideas."

    Excerpt from the Financial Times -- "According to Nobel laureate Professor Michael Spence of the Stern School of Business at New York University, “[the economy] is a fragile and deteriorating situation globally, with little in the way of effective counter-measures'."
  • project syndicate logo feature
    Excerpt from Project Syndicate -- "When Lagarde took the helm in July 2011, she inherited an institution in crisis. The global financial meltdown in 2008 and its economic aftershocks had discredited Western-led multilateral lenders and the free-market 'Washington Consensus.' Lagarde’s leadership has helped to restore the Fund’s reputation."
  • forte foundation blog logo
    Excerpt from the Forté Foundation blog -- "My nonprofit friends and colleagues have gently teased me about being a business school student, claiming I have traded empathy and advocacy for cost-benefit analyses. However, I have to say that (as I expected), business school students and professors care very much about the same equality and equity issues as my peers in nonprofit careers. My classmates want to work with people with different backgrounds and opinions, and they want to use business to solve complex societal problems. In addition, numerous professors have discussed how we can use our education to better those who are less fortunate than we are."
  • business of fashion logo
    Excerpt for Business of Fashion -- "... Luxury megabrands have not been shy about the opportunity, investing heavily in both their own outlet stores and partnerships with off-price retailers. ... But for brands that rely on marketing their products as exclusive, offering items for up to 50, 60 or even 70 percent less than retail price can seriously undermine the perceived value of their products, says Serdari."

    Excerpt from Fox Business -- "'With greater volatility around the globe, in China and emerging markets, for example, deal volumes will go down as dealmakers go into "risk off’ mode," Salomon predicted."
  • financial times logo feature
    Excerpt from the Financial Times -- "No mainstream economic forecaster is predicting a recession this year. But this is little comfort because they have consistently failed to forecast recessions. This might be because they are inherently unpredictable. New York University’s Xavier Gabaix has shown that they can arise from failures of important big companies..."
  • globe and mail logo feature
    Excerpt from The Globe and Mail -- "'... Consider Aswath Damodaran, a professor of finance at New York University and widely followed expert on market valuation. He has generally been bullish on stocks, and continues to be somewhat positive, but cautioned last week that U.S. companies are now returning more cash to investors in the form of dividends and buybacks than the businesses collectively earn – a clearly unsustainable trend. 'I am more wary about equities going into 2016 than I was entering 2015,' he wrote."
     
  • cnnmoney logo feature
    Excerpt from CNNMoney -- "America almost had its own market meltdown like what China is experiencing. During the panic of 1907, the head of the New York Stock Exchange wanted to shut the market down. The only reason he didn't was because John Pierpont Morgan (aka J.P. Morgan) was right across the street and told him that it would be a terrible idea and cause more panic, says Sylla."

    Excerpt from CBS -- "'It's most likely that the Chinese will continue to be drawn to U.S. real estate, both commercial and residential,' Wachtel said. 'You're going to see many billions of dollars flowing into the U.S. as we remain the one safe haven compared to the slower growth in Europe and the considerable weakness in the emerging markets.'"

    Excerpt from The Wall Street Journal -- "'If anything, [the research] findings seem to be as favorable as Uber or Lyft might have wanted them to be,' said Arun Sundararajan, a New York University business school professor who was solicited for advice in the city’s study."

    Excerpt from The Boston Globe -- "Another study published in 1999 by the Stern School of Business at New York University found that movies that debut on 10 or fewer screens can expect an Oscar-nomination bump that would boost sales by about 250 percent, while movies that open on more than 10 screens can expect a 30 percent boost."
  • o'reilly radar logo feature
    Excerpt from O'Reilly Data Show -- "One of the things I did was to break up the investment landscape into three different types of holding periods. On the one hand, you have high-frequency trading, and on the other extreme, you have very long-term investing. In high-frequency trading, your holding periods are sort of minutes to a day. In very long-term investing, your holding periods are months to years, that Warren Buffett style of investing. Then there’s sort of a space in the middle, which is the part I find most interesting, where there’s a lot of action, which is sort of days to weeks holding period. … The strategy one uses for these different horizons tends to be very different. In the high-frequency trading space, for example, humans don’t really stand a chance against computers, there’s just so much information."
  • time magazine logo feature
    Excerpt from TIME -- "A surprise currency devaluation and continued downward drift in the value of the yuan against the dollar have investors concerned that some of China’s trade partners will have to devalue their own currencies to avoid losing a competitive commercial advantage. That could trigger a currency war that would ravage global trade."

    Excerpt from Bloomberg -- "Lotteries have long been a form of public financing and the museum has tickets from the Revolutionary and early Federal era in its collections, said Richard Sylla, the [Museum of American Finance's] chairman. He said his dorm at Harvard was built in the early 1800s partly with lottery money."
  • marketwatch logo feature
    Excerpt from MarketWatch -- "'They are very lucky to have built up a reservoir of trust over time,' agrees Schenkler, at NYU. 'They have reputational capital, which gives them a well of goodwill. So once media coverage erodes, things will get back to where they were.'"
  • Business News Daily Logo
    Excerpt from Business News Daily -- "Taking a cutthroat approach isn't always the best way to get what you want when negotiating, new research finds. Bringing emotion into negotiations often elicits compassion from the other party, making that person more likely to develop sympathy and, in turn, more willing to compromise and find creative solutions, finds a study set to be published in the journal Organizational Behavior and Human Decision Processes."
  • SarderTV logo
    Excerpt from SarderTV -- "The easiest way to think of bounded awareness, it's that moment we experience when we're looking for the butter in the fridge and we claim there is no butter in the fridge. And we insist that we looked and there really was no butter in the fridge. And then our family member comes and says, 'There's the butter in the fridge!' And we say, 'How did I miss that? How did I not see it right in front of me.'"
