    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."

    Excerpt from Bloomberg -- "'The incentive to manipulate is always going to be there: what we have to make sure is the ability to actually do it is reduced,' Rosa Abrantes-Metz, a professor at New York University’s Stern School of Business, said in a telephone interview. The FSB report 'talks about many things, such as no sharing of information among traders beyond what is necessary, but that should have been in place for a long time.'"

    bloomberg logo feature
    Excerpt from Bloomberg -- "The cycle certainly seems to be faster. The pattern is still relative to what we see in other industries. The challenge is that, in many industries, the dynamics just don't move as fast. Things don't replace new technologies, steel and airlines and things like that, as often, whereas in the tech world, the life cycles are much more compressed. But the same basic pattern shows up whether we look at manufacturing or retail or technology."

    Excerpt from Financial Times -- "That significant parts of the global financial system are running on dollars is no surprise. We discussed some of the basics – the fact that the dollar accounts for 80% of trade finance and 87% of foreign currency market transactions – in an earlier post on the reserve currencies. But there is more, much more. The fact of the matter is that there is a parallel dollar-based financial system – call it the 'Global Dollar system' – that operates outside the United States."

    Excerpt from CityLab -- "Cities can invest in 'invisible infrastructure,' said Arun Sundararajan, professor of information sciences at New York University, 'without having to spend on steel and concrete.'"
  • huffington post logo feature
    Excerpt from The Huffington Post -- "For investing in college, the analysis is complicated by the fact that you need to compute the difference between expected income with and without going to college. People have done that, and the answer is that the payoff usually remains quite attractive, but it depends on where and what you study, and whether you complete your degree."
  • salon logo
    Excerpt from Salon -- "Rationality is not hardwired. Indeed, when isolated from one another, we are not particularly good at reasoning. But as even Jonathan Haidt acknowledges, 'if you put individuals together in the right way, such that some individuals can use their reasoning powers to disconfirm the claims of others, and all individuals feel some common bond or shared fate that allows them to interact civilly, you can create a group that ends up producing good reasoning as an emergent property of the social system.'"

    Excerpt from USA Today -- "'The overall size of the auto loan market is less than one-tenth of the overall size of the mortgage market,' White said. 'The magnitude is smaller. Nobody expects the price of the underlying collateral to be always going up.' He added, 'I can't imagine the same economy-shaking consequences that the collapse of subprime mortgage lending had.'"
  • bloomberg logo feature
    Excerpt from Bloomberg -- "When the Fed eventually tightens credit, it risks causing financial-market turmoil similar to the 'tantrum' that occurred last year after the central bank said it was considering trimming its bond purchases, according to the paper, which was also written by Anil Kashyap of the University of Chicago, Kermit Schoenholtz of New York University’s Stern School of Business and Hyun Song Shin of Princeton University."

    Excerpt from The Huffington Post -- "In 2008 the Growth Commission--a group of prominent economists chaired by Nobel Prize winner Michael Spence--included Brazil in a group of just thirteen countries that stood out by achieving very high growth over a 30-year period."
  • cbc logo feature
    Excerpt from CBC Radio -- "It really comes down to the four entities of the marketing environment. One is the consumer and their shifting tastes and preferences towards healthier products. The other is the company and what makes sense for their marketing and production efficiencies. What the company's competitors are doing is something that is always on their radar. They don't want the competition to move too far ahead or beyond them. And then, finally, there's the public voice, or community, and the educational initiatives, efforts, and governmental policies and initiatives that have worked to educate the consumer on the importance of proper nutrition for adults and children."
  • brics post
    Excerpt from The BRICS Post -- "Mr. Modi has political capital to spend in India, and he ought to use some of it to winnow government subsidies, reduce protection of certain economic sectors, and to do all he can to increase basic competition in goods and services. Infrastructure and education are important too, but these take a long time to improve. The most immediate need is to get the growth rate back to a 9-10 per cent level."

    Excerpt from NHK -- "It is possible that only those people that have bad credit who cannot get loans from banks are the ones who borrow from these platforms. And so, if I'm the lender, my risk is a high default rate."
  • business insider logo feature
    Excerpt from Business Insider -- "...Galloway’s basic premise is this: Everyone thinks the 'digital age' is a rising tide that will lift all boats. But really, it’s a shift in tides that favors a few super yachts and will leave everyone else stuck in the sand or worse. With this perspective, he examines the players in three arenas: Social media, retail, and the world economy."
  • new york observer logo feature
    Excerpt from New York Observer -- "Manhattan is home to some of the world’s most iconic skyscrapers. But despite its abundance of upward real-estate, a map created by Shlomo Angel shows the city actually has a lower population density as of 2010 versus 1910. Mr. Angel’s map comes from his book Planet of Cities, part of an upcoming New York Public Library presentation by the NYU Stern Urbanization Project and the NYU Marron Institute for Urban Management."

    Excerpt from Forbes -- "Apple has become the ultimate symbol of luxury. And as the luxury sector has been the most robust part of the retail industry, particularly amid the nation’s vanishing middle class, the darling of the tech world is poised for explosion growth — particularly as it tip toes into upscale fashion accessories with its new smart watch, Scott Galloway, founder and chairman of L2 and clinical professor of marketing at NYU Stern, said during the conference. More than Cartier or Hermes, 'Apple is becoming the new indicator of wealth in our society,” said Galloway, who called Apple the hands-down winner today in the digital age."

    Excerpt from Bloomberg View -- "Today's chart comes from a very interesting article on stock buybacks from Aswath Damodaran, a professor at New York University. He writes: This has been a big year for stock buybacks, continuing a return to a trend that started more than two decades ago and was broken only briefly by the crisis in 2008."

    Excerpt from Reuters -- "'What we don’t know, or we feel like it varies, is whether the benefit comes from working longer hours, or not being able to turn off, working evenings and weekends, or from something else,' [Wiesenfeld] told Reuters Health. 'It could be there’s higher wellbeing, there could be creativity benefits too,' she said. Working parents have lower stress levels when they have the option to work remotely, she noted."

    Prof. Jonathan Haidt's research on awe is featured

    September 22, 2014
    huffington post logo feature
    Excerpt from The Huffington Post -- "Though psychologists have studied virtually every human emotion, they have only recently begun to pay attention to the complicated and varied emotion of awe. In a foundational 2003 paper, 'Approaching Awe, A Moral, Spiritual And Aesthetic Emotion,' psychologists Dacher Keltner of UC Berkeley and Jonathan Haidt of New York University outlined how exactly awe works and what effect it has on us. Awe consists of two qualities, Keltner and Haidt say: perceived vastness (something we think to be greater than ourselves), and accommodation, a need to assimilate the experience of vastness into one's current mental structure."
  • quartz logo
    Excerpt from Quartz -- "Managers tend to think that using a flexible schedule to be more productive is good—a sign of commitment to the organization—according to a study (pdf) from Lisa Leslie at the University of Minnesota. But when employees seek such schedules to accommodate aspects of their personal life, they see it as a sign of low commitment and dedication."
  • business insider logo feature
    Excerpt from Business Insider -- "One Chinese supplier that works with a range of European and American buyers described how Uniqlo provided him with 18-month forecasts of order volume. If the company deviated by more than a certain percentage, Uniqlo would apologise and offer to compensate him for the lost production. Other buyers, in contrast, would simply cancel orders or reduce volumes with neither an apology nor the offer of compensation. The supplier said he never accepted monetary compensation when Uniqlo deviated from its order projections. The respect the company showed him and the long-term nature of the relationship were worth more than the money."
