    Excerpt from Bloomberg -- "Living wills could hamstring banks’ ability to easily move trading books or funding among their various legal entities, according to Brad Hintz, an adjunct professor of finance at New York University’s Stern School of Business. 'That’s the reason why the banks are being very careful about what they promise on this, because the very idea of a universal bank is that you can move everything around the world easily,' Hintz said in an interview on Bloomberg Radio. 'It’s a direct attack on the business model of the banks.'"

    Excerpt from The Guardian -- "...the convenience of these pods comes with an environmental cost: they are typically made from partly- or un-recyclable plastic, which ends up in landfills. It’s something that is starting to weigh on consumers’ conscience, according to Tensie Whelan, director of New York University’s Center for Sustainable Business, and former president of the Rainforest Alliance. 'People love the convenience of the single serving, and they’re going to go for convenience over waste,' said Whelan. 'But most people feel guilty about it.'"

    Excerpt from Poets & Quants -- "A former PwC consultant, Billings is described by students as a passionate and empathetic teacher who sets the bar high and inspires her classes to strive for greatness. The results speak for themselves: She was recently promoted to associate professor with tenure effective next academic year."

    Excerpt from Forbes -- "Selections are made by a team that includes both store buyers and MoMA curators. Both perspectives are important because the Store is considered as an integrated extension of the Museum that reflects the organization’s design philosophies."

    Excerpt from The Wall Street Journal -- "And last month, two New York University real-estate professors, Jeanne Calderon and Gary Friedland, released a report that listed 27 major projects that have sought a total of $5.4 billion in EB-5 financing, including multiple large Manhattan-based developers like Tishman Speyer and Harry Macklowe. Nineteen are in New York or Miami, and these projects all come in addition to a similar-sized list the professors compiled last May."

    Excerpt from Poets & Quants -- "'Companies are facing these really complex issues of human rights, which are rooted in politics, geography, development and these really complex questions,' Labowitz explains in an interview with Poets&Quants. 'Companies are facing these questions all the time, but they’re not being addressed in business schools.'"

    Excerpt from Foreign Policy -- "'We always knew that transnational accountability mechanisms don’t reach every single multinational corporation,' she said. 'But in the last 10 years, we [have seen] this explosion of companies where we have no leverage whatsoever.'"

    Excerpt from Forbes -- "As Nobel laureate Michael Spence has argued, the internal growth of economies would never have reached today’s rates without the cross-border flows of resources, capital and technology."

    Excerpt from Yahoo Finance -- "'The banks are under severe pressure from this digital intermediation, which could cause them to lose business to new competitors and cause assets to flow out of the banks into someplace not regulated,' says NYU’s Smith. 'For a long time these companies were just little pin pricks, but they can’t be ignored anymore.'"
  • financial times logo feature
    Excerpt from the Financial Times -- "Authorities need to face the reality that direct evidence will probably be harder to come by, and that proactive reform of deficient structures is needed, coupled with active market screening."
  • the guardian logo feature
    Excerpt from The Guardian -- "This polarised image of vulnerable victims needing protection from vilified perpetrators is hardly a promising basis for a mature and respectful exchange of views on campus. It shuts down free speech and the marketplace of ideas."
  • financial times logo feature
    Excerpt from Financial Times -- "'The jobs coming through the alumni channel are perceived as having significantly better growth potential,' [Greenberg] says, linking this preoccupation with longterm cash flow to the net present value calculations that are a staple of MBA courses. 'They are willing to take less today for a job that has better prospects in the long run.'"

    Excerpt from Bloomberg -- "'We are reaching the limits of what monetary policy can do and we have to have the use of fiscal policy,' Roubini said."
  • PayScale.com logo
    Excerpt from PayScale.com -- "The results of this research indicate that when co-workers are at the same status level, they are less likely to support one another than when they have a little more distance between them. Perhaps this is because these employees feel competitive with one another, or they feel that it wouldn't be fair to them and their time to help someone who is in roughly the same place as they are. Similarly, when someone's status is very distant, they are less likely to help out as well. There is, however, a kind of sweet spot where co-workers are most likely to support one another and offer help – a moderate status distance."
  • reuters logo feature
    Excerpt from Reuters -- "In his new book, 'The End of Alchemy', Mervyn King argues that financial crises arise because people hold mistaken beliefs about an uncertain future. 'Crises don't come out of thin air,' he writes, 'but are the result of unavoidable mistakes made by people struggling to cope with unknowable futures.'"
  • cbs logo feature
    Excerpt from CBS News -- "'Many large corporations truly believe the administration's attitude on corporate mergers is anti-business and politically motivated,' said Roy Smith, a professor at New York University and a former Goldman Sachs partner, in an email. 'Those more left-leaning think government has to protect the people from greedy corporations, etc. There is no agreed answer to the question. But it seems to be true that the Obama people are more restrictive on M&A than the (Bill) Clinton people were.'"
  • bloomberg logo new
    Excerpt from Bloomberg -- "I would say that part of the yen's strength, and is also the same thing with the euro, has to do with what's going on with the United States. The Fed has gone very dovish. They've now signaled that they're going to hike only, at best, twice a year. Even some Fed governors were talking down the dollar."
  • economic times logo feature
    Excerpt from The Economic Times -- "I think that increasingly countries are interconnected. If there is a correction in the US, you are going to see it ripple through the globe and you are going to see larger impacts in emerging markets and developed markets. So Indian markets are less about the Indian economy than they used to be, they are all connected to the global economy and that is why these negative interest rates in Europe and Japan are problematic because they are sending a signal about future growth that is not good for the global economy."
  • international business times logo feature
    Excerpt from the International Business Times -- "'In 10 years there may be no more stock exchanges and far fewer banks and so forth. All of these things can be made 90 percent cheaper by introducing this technology,' said David Yermack, chairman of the finance department and a professor at New York University Stern School of Business. 'Financial services are going to get a lot cheaper for most people.'"
  • Womens Wear Daily
    Excerpt from Women's Wear Daily -- "'It will be the end of the billion-dollar brand. By trying to mean something to more people, the luxury brand [actually] means less to [everyone],' he concluded. That thought is predicated on the view that luxury is about having something that no one else has, even though that inherently also means fewer sales. 'Shifting from large megabrands to small specific brands will disrupt every facet of the fashion industry,' Lenihan concluded."
  • forbes logo feature
    Excerpt from Forbes -- "Attempts to shield students from words, ideas, and people that might cause them emotional discomfort are bad for the students. They are bad for the workplace, which will be mired in unending litigation if student expectations of safety are carried forward. And they are bad for American democracy, which is already paralyzed by worsening partisanship. When the ideas, values, and speech of the other side are seen not just as wrong but as willfully aggressive toward innocent victims, it is hard to imagine the kind of mutual respect, negotiation, and compromise that are needed to make politics a positive-sum game."
  • forbes logo feature
    Excerpt from Forbes -- "The challenge is to know what to look for when stepping outside your native market, be able to quantify the downside risk, and implement the required strategy in each of the new markets. In a new book, 'Global Vision,' by NYU Stern School of Business scholar and leader Robert Salomon, I finally found some great insights on what to look for, and how to make the necessary changes."
  • ABC Science logo
    Excerpt from ABC.net -- "What I find odd about the present situation is that having controlled inflation and got away from the world in which we had 15%, 20% inflation, now people are getting paranoid about the fact that inflation is instead of being 2% is maybe only 1. Or horror of all horrors, it's 0. And this is a disaster in some sense. Now I find this utterly incompatible with the original intention of inflation targeting."
  • China Radio International - NewsPlus Radio logo
    Excerpt from China Radio International -- "It doesn't seem the taxes set up will make them prohibitively expensive. One thing that's important to keep in mind is that there tends to be much less sensitivity to price in the luxury goods market. So if you were talking the Louis Vuitton bag, or something like this, I don't think that a 10% or 17% value-added taxes is going to make a difference for the type of consumers who look to consume those luxury goods."
  • bloomberg logo new
    Excerpt from Bloomberg -- "Edward Altman, New York University professor and creator of the widely used Z-Score method for predicting bankruptcies, has also forecast rising U.S. defaults this year, saying in January that recession could follow even with a rate of less than 10 percent, given the increase in debt since the financial crisis."
