    Excerpt from TIME -- "In the next few days, the Senate will begin debate on one of the most important questions it will answer this decade—whether to grant the President 'trade promotion authority' (TPA), also known as “fast track.” This move would give President Obama and his successors the authority to place trade agreements before Congress for a simple up-or-down vote, denying lawmakers the chance to filibuster or add amendments to the deal which change its rules."
  • quartz logo
    Excerpt from Quartz -- "Many world-class brands, such as Hermès and Christolfe, are constantly introducing ever-more exclusive clubs to ensure that their customers feel a consistent, heightened sense of 'specialness.' 'The irony but also allure about [these] clubs is that no one knows the exact list of clients (other than the corporate staff), but also no one can ask to be allowed into the club,' writes Thomaï Serdari, a professor of marketing at New York University’s Stern School of Business in an email to Quartz. Serdari is the editor of Luxury: History, Culture, Consumption.. 'In other words, one may be a member without knowing it.'"

    Excerpt from The Wall Street Journal -- "Managers are giving employees more information about their performance, and some are sharing information about how different workers stack up. But sometimes, a bit of data can be a dangerous thing. That is the finding of a new working paper from researchers at Columbia University and New York University, who studied a friendly competition among truckers at a large North American logistics firm and found that, in certain work environments, revealing performance data can backfire."

  • bloomberg view logo
    Excerpt from Bloomberg View -- "Haidt’s basic finding is simple. Throughout history, human beings have operated under five sets of moral commitments: avoidance of harm, fairness, loyalty, authority and sanctity. Conservatives recognize all five, but liberals recognize only the first two."

    Excerpt from MSNBC -- "Well, it's bold and gutsy, and I love that. And what we're dealing with here, often, is unintentional bias. Those things aren't going to go away by us just hoping they do. We need bold and gutsy experiments, and I think that's what this is. This is an experiment. What I want to see her do is track the data and what I want to see the next CEO do that's bold and gutsy is something even crazier. I want to see them mandate that everybody negotiate. That would be a really interesting direction. Instead of mandating that nobody negotiate, what would happen if we said everybody needs to make the case?"

    Excerpt from The Manila Times -- "There are so many dimensions we can learn from 'coopetition,' a buzzword coined by Adam Brandenburger and Barry Nalebuff to harness the positive energy from the symmetry between competition and cooperation."

    Excerpt from The Wall Street Journal -- "We really inherited a world where the United States’ standing was seriously diminished. To me, the thing that she did most effectively was to lead the administration’s efforts to restore U.S. leadership. And that continues to be an important part of her legacy."
  • The New York Times
    Excerpt from The New York Times -- "'A lot of commerce begins with Google and has for the last decade,' said Arun Sundararajan, a professor at the New York University Stern School of Business. 'They have converted this into an incredibly profitable advertising business. But I’ve seen them make steps to get closer to the actual retail process.'"

    Excerpt from TIME -- "The fight against al-Shabab in East Africa is a regional effort. With 3,664 people deployed, Kenya provides fewer personnel to the UN-backed African Union Mission in Somalia than Uganda, Ethiopia or Burundi do. Yet it is Kenya that has borne the brunt of al-Shabab’s attacks outside Somalia. Since 2012, the group has killed over 600 people in Kenya."

    Excerpt from The Guardian Nigeria -- "By analyzing the product characteristics (short versus long life), customer population (degree of heterogeneity or diverse makeup), and the size of the donor’s budget, Taylor and Xiao found that for long shelf life products, such as ACTs (with a 24 to 36-month life from the factory to expiration), donors should only offer a purchase subsidy. In contrast, if a product has a short shelf life, a sufficiently large donor budget and a diverse customer population, it is optimal to offer a sales subsidy in addition to a purchase subsidy."

    Excerpt from Financial Times -- "'You can buy something for half a million, not show a passport and ship it. Plenty of people are using it for laundering,' Mr Roubini, a passionate art collector, told a panel hosted by the FT at Davos in January."

    Excerpt from Racked -- "Pure-play e-commerce can scale faster than brick-and-mortar, but then there’s a certain friction. The moment you are on Amazon’s radar, they will begin to look into your category. One of the most impactful ways to market a brand to somebody is to offer them a great in-store experience."
  • The New York Times
    Excerpt from The New York Times -- "Cecchetti & Schoenholtz argue that 'zero matters' in macroeconomics; specifically, both the zero almost-lower bound on interest rates and downward wage rigidity make the case that deflation or for that matter very low inflation is a bad thing."

    Excerpt from The Australian -- "The study, by the University of Western Australia’s Raymond da Silva Rosa and Michael Kingsbury and New York University’s David Yermack, found that creep provisions were seldom used to take one shareholder’s interest beyond the 50 per cent mark that delivers majority control. Instead, most creeping acquisitions lifted the shareholder’s stake to between 20 per cent and 30 per cent."

    Excerpt from BBC -- "Greece is running out of money. It may have enough money to pay the IMF this week and pay salaries and pensions this week, but there is doubt whether that's possible next week and thereafter...the real question is, what is going to happen once there is no more money coming from outside. The various sources of money inside have been exhausted. Mr. Varoufakis has to explain a credible plan through which Greece is going to meet its obligations."
