    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."

    Excerpt from The Australian Financial Review -- "Another perspective on alternative assets comes from Stephen Brown of Monash University and the Stern School of Business at New York University. Brown highlights a 60/40 stock/bond portfolio has a 10-year annualised return of 6.6 per cent against 5.6 per cent for hedge funds. Despite this, Brown advocates a small allocation towards hedge funds (5 per cent) and says they do reduce financial risk."

    Excerpt from Seeking Alpha -- "I spoke to Professor Rosa Abrantes-Metz at the New York University Stern School of Business. She is the leading expert on globe price manipulation. She actually testifies in some of these gold manipulation cases that are going on. She wrote a report reaching the same conclusions. It's not just an opinion, it's not just a deep, dark conspiracy theory. Here's a PhD statistician and a prominent market expert lawyer, expert witness in litigation qualified by the courts, who independently reached the same conclusion."

  • RT logo
    Excerpt from RT -- "Well, I would disagree that the sharing economy is reaching a dead end. I think that the process that we're seeing is simply a natural outcome of experimentation at the early stages of a phenomenon. So today's sharing economy are sort of early stage instances of a much broader transition in the economy. We're inventing a new way of organizing economic activity. Any time that happens, different companies will experiment with different ways of sort of fulfilling the dream, and some of them will succeed and grow on to be big and some of them won't."

    Excerpt from The Huffington Post -- "The bottom line: international experience suggests that negative interest rates, at least as low as we are seeing today and (in some places) significantly lower, will become a permanent part of the monetary policy toolkit. If that’s right, we need not worry quite so much whether a 2% inflation target is too low."

  • cbc logo feature
    Excerpt from CBC Radio -- "'If we look forward ten years, a healthy double digit percentage of many large economies will be sharing economy activity' he says. He sees a particularly strong role for countries like China, where the emerging middle class '...think about getting a car on demand rather than owning a car, or staying in Airbnb-style accommodation rather than going to a hotel. So the entire model of consumption that they embrace as they become middle class consumers may end up being sharing economy aligned.'"

    Excerpt from Bloomberg -- "'The leak and the e-mail exchanges between Tsipras and Lagarde have strengthened the negotiating position of the IMF toward both Greece and the Europeans,' Economides said.

    Excerpt from Boston.com -- "Arun Sundararajan, a business professor at New York University, said the rulings indicate that taxi regulations across the country are in need of updating. 'I see them as part of a process of remaking the way that we regulate paid, chauffeured transportation,' he said. 'I sort of see things like this as an opportunity for a city to say, "OK, now we have to sit down and rewrite this."'"

    Excerpt from The New York Times -- "Discrimination is also pervasive in the white-collar world. Researchers found that white state legislators, Democrats and Republicans alike, were less likely to respond to a constituent letter signed with a stereotypically black name. Even at universities, emails sent to professors from stereotypically black names asking for a chance to discuss research possibilities received fewer responses."

    Excerpt from Associated Press -- "Scott Galloway, clinical professor of marketing at NYU Stern School of Business, said Apple risked public sentiment turning against the company as people became more informed about the case, and particularly if Apple lost. For now, he said, 'the line isn't going to be any shorter for the iPhone because the FBI in concert with a third party figured out a way to hack into one phone. I haven't heard anybody say "That's it, I'm switching to Samsung."'"

    Excerpt from The Real Deal -- "One reason is that EB-5 capital is 'remarkably flexible,' meaning it can be debt or equity, secured or unsecured, and can account for as little as 1 percent of a project’s cost or as much as 100 percent, according to a research paper by New York University professors Jeanne Calderon and Gary Friedland. 'It can contain virtually any features, with few limitations or restrictions imposed by the EB-5 program,' the duo wrote."

    Excerpt from Project Syndicate -- "... if current conditions in the advanced economies remain entrenched a decade from now, helicopter drops, debt monetization, and taxation of cash may turn out to be the new QE, CE, FG, ZIRP, and NIRP. Desperate times call for desperate measures."

    Excerpt from Ethical Systems -- "Bharara highlighted that collectively, as a society, we see the difficulty of speaking up against higher authorities. In response, there are long-standing legal protections- as early as 1863- when the False Claims Act was promulgated to motivate reporting of cases of fraud against the government, and more recent laws such as Sarbanes-Oxley and the Dodd-Frank Act which provide whistleblower protection."

    Excerpt from Marketplace -- "MetLife has always said it’s just an insurance company. Lawrence J. White, professor of economics at NYU’s Stern School of Business, said MetLife has some ground to stand on to argue that it is different from a bank. 'They tend to have more capital which means they are somewhat less leveraged,' he said. ... 'But if they got into trouble, the consequences for the rest of the economy could be substantial,' White said."

    Excerpt from CNBC -- "In creating opportunities for businesses to reach consumers directly, Ghose points out that social media has also created opportunities for a wide range of job seekers. He said there is a need for graphic designers who create a platform's look, a need for security specialists who ensure data is protected, a need for app developers for mobile sites and a need for data scientists who mine the platform's data to parse clients whims and wishes."

'It’ll be critical that they publicly and transparently disclose the substitutes they use and work with scientists, government and civil society to ensure those alternatives are safe as well,' she said."

    Excerpt from Fortune -- "With net neutrality ensuring that telecommunications and cable companies will not determine the winner in streaming video, it is now time to experience competition among Netflix, Amazon, Hulu and others, based on their merits, content availability, quality of picture, etc. It is a pity that download caps make video more expensive in wireless competition."

    Excerpt from Bloomberg View -- "The book asks deep, difficult questions about the theory and practice of finance and economics, and comes up with interesting answers every time. They're sobering answers too, in many cases, because they show how hard it will be for policy makers to avoid the next crisis."
