    Excerpt from The Economist -- "In [Romer's] 'endogenous growth' theory, new ideas materialise as firms invest in physical capital or research and development, creating knowledge that spills over to the rest of the economy. That suggests that open economies, with institutions that encourage investment in physical and human capital, ought to do best."

    Excerpt from Investor's Business Daily -- "'When you have an application of your own and you also control the distribution through the Apple App Store (of rival apps), that can easily raise anti-competitive concerns,' Nicholas Economides, a professor at New York University's Stern School of Business, told IBD."

    Excerpt from CNBC -- "The Securities Act of 1933 and the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 dramatically increased the information that companies and stock dealers had to provide to investors. This reduced the risk premium accorded to stocks, and it allowed advocates like William Greenough of TIAA to make the case that equities belonged in long-term portfolios, given that investors could make informed decisions about which stocks to buy, Sylla argues. Further, the shift to earnings reports meant that investors could view earnings growth, rather than simple dividend growth, as a key component of future returns. This meant earnings were increasingly reinvested in the businesses rather than doled out as dividends, Sylla wrote in an email to CNBC."

    Excerpt from The New York Times -- " the N.Y.U. social psychologist Jonathan Haidt points out in an outstanding essay in The American Interest, over the past several decades a different mind-set has emerged. People with this mind-set value the emancipated individual above the cohesive community. They value, or at least try to value, self-expression, social freedom and diversity. Their morality is not based on loyalty to people close to them; it’s based on a universal equality for all humans everywhere."

    Professor Scott Galloway weighs in on Tesla stock

    July 14, 2016
    us news and world report logo feature
    Excerpt from US News & World Report -- "The excitement around Tesla, its brand, and its enigmatic, Tony Stark-like leader create more than just intangibles and billionaires talking their book, says Scott Galloway, founder and chairman at L2 Inc., a leading intelligence firm that benchmarks overall brand performance. 'You could argue that Tesla has access to the cheapest capital in the history of the automobile industry … it makes sense from a capital allocation standpoint' to take on expensive endeavors like the gigafactory. Galloway points to Tesla's price-sales ratio, which is 7.8, and notes that General Motors Co.'s (GM) P/S is a mere 0.3, making secondary offerings a less attractive way to raise money."

    Excerpt from Niskansen Center blog -- "Each year, American universities educate hundreds of thousands of foreign students, many of them pursuing degrees in science, math, engineering, and technology—fields that are central to innovation and economic growth. Doing more to retain the exceptional foreign graduates who wish to stay in the United States—particularly those with a demonstrated ability to start new companies and create jobs—would be an unambiguous economic good."

    Excerpt from Bloomberg View -- "One of Adolf Hitler’s many blunders was to kick smart people out of his country. His hatred of Jews led him to expel a large number of Germany's most accomplished scientists, many of whom went to the U.S. What was a bane to Hitler’s reich was a boon to the U.S. Economists Petra Moser, Alessandra Voena, and Fabian Waldinger estimate that patenting increased by an average of 31 percent in scientific fields dominated by Jewish refugees. And of course everyone knows the story of how Jewish scientists were crucial to the U.S. atomic-bomb program."

Still, he adds that nearby resources, like public transportation, could feel increased pressure from masses of residents."

    Excerpt from mbaMission -- "As one first year we interviewed said of his experience at Stern, 'So far, the most impressive class has been "Marketing" with Jeff Carr,' adding, 'He's super engaging and makes you think more about the consequences of your actions in marketing than simply teaching you the tools. The class structure is very informal, but all of the students are learning a ton.'"

    Excerpt from CNBC -- "The allure of Tesla and the danger of Tesla is Elon Musk. Elon Musk has made the company what it is today ... but I think he is the biggest weakness of the company. I think he's a great storyteller, but if you look at Tesla's lifetime, it always had trouble on execution. And I think the reality is Elon Musk is not as interested in execution as he is in telling you the big story."

    Excerpt from CFA Institute -- "Lev and Gu seek, above all, to improve on GAAP’s measurement of value creation by focusing the proposed report on cash flows. In their system, companies would not only capitalize R&D but would also provide a breakdown separating research (i.e., the systematic pursuit of new knowledge) and development (i.e., the use of research to develop new products or processes). Additionally, a charge for the cost of equity capital would be deducted from cash flows. Where feasible, changes in values of major strategic assets, such as the present value of cash flows from proven oil and gas reserves, would be taken into account. "

    Excerpt from Fortune -- "Williams says that while the key things all entrepreneurs need are mentorship and access to financing, both of which 10,000 Small Businesses provides, he adds that if entrepreneurship programs really want to create job growth, they need to focus on helping so-called disruptive, young businesses that tend to add jobs more quickly. The Goldman program, he says, focuses more on creating incremental growth. The median age of its business is 12 years old, which puts them a good distance away from startup territory."

    Excerpt from the Foundation for Economic Education blog -- "Alain Bertaud, the world’s foremost expert on land-use regulations in developing countries, has long been pointing out how zoning regulations have ruined Mumbai. Mumbai does not have bridges that connect the mainland to docks. As Bertaud points out, such bridges built across San Francisco Bay and Pearl River Delta have turned topographical liabilities into assets. According to Bertaud, with coastal zone regulations as stringent as Mumbai, New York, Hong Kong, Singapore, San Francisco, and Rio de Janeiro would not even have been built."

    Excerpt from WIRED -- "'One is very modest in the sense that you say, you can’t change anything about the political and legal framework or social norms, but we can get some of the most important elements of design right,' says Paul Romer, founding director of the Urbanization Project at NYU’s Stern Business School. That’s the conservative approach. 'The other extreme,' Romer says, 'is you build a city and put it in a new zone, and try out different legal and political structures, and even try and create new social norms.'"

    Excerpt from Inc. -- "Telling more stories of this nature--related by small-business owners rather than Clinton herself--could have a significant negative effect on Trump's campaign, says Ari Ginsberg, professor of entrepreneurship and management at New York University's Stern School of Business. Trump's response is equally as important, Ginsberg says. The least effective reply would be to attack the character or integrity of Tesoro. Instead, Ginsberg says, 'Trump is more likely to be successful with counterattacks that shine a negative spotlight on Hillary Clinton herself.'"
  • yahoo finance logo feature
    Excerpt from Yahoo Finance -- "The main issue is that accounting is hopelessly behind business development. Starting [in] the mid-80s, companies changed completely the business models, to investments in tangibles, in brands, in patents, in information systems, out of fixed, heavy assets, machines, factories. Accounting still provides information on those assets that are on the decline and not on those that are increasing."
