    Excerpt from The New York Times -- "[Gary Cohn] delivered the tax legislation,' [Smith] said. 'Whether you agree with it or not, he executed. That’s his skill. And he stood up to the president after Charlottesville. People respect that. I think he could leave now with his reputation intact.' Alone among the prominent Goldman alumni in the administration, Mr. Mnuchin seems likely to stay. 'He’s been a good and loyal employee,' Professor Smith said. 'But he’s more of a Hollywood person now. His reputation in the professional financial sector may not matter that much to him.'"

    Excerpt from Insurance News Net -- "Pricing and hedging challenges attached to variable annuities (VA) with living benefits raises questions about their suitability for consumers in search of retirement income, according to a new study by a pair of economists. When insurers that sold VAs with living benefits saw the valuation of existing liabilities rise, they raised costs and trimmed benefits, the study found. Those liabilities rose with the falling stock market and lower interest rates after the financial crisis."

The same is true of global exchange programs, where an impressive 56% of graduates spend a semester studying abroad."

    Excerpt from Clear Admit -- "Vikram Gulati, now in his first year at NYU Stern School of Business, also advised getting an earlier start. ... 'I highly recommend making the effort to visit business schools you’re interested in before submitting your applications, permitting you have the vacation time and resources to do so.' - Calan Underwood ... 'If you have something in your life that helps you relax or puts your mind at ease, do it,' he said. 'For me it was exercising, and I should have done more of it. I stressed myself out a few times throughout the process. It’s a lot of work, but looking back, I had the time to take a couple of breaks here and there.' - Hamilton Jordan"

    Excerpt from the Harvard Law blog -- "CVC investments are now at the highest levels since the dot com era. The motivating research questions we are interested in examining in this setting are: 1) how transparent are firms about their CVC investments, and 2) is CVC investing a productive use of a firm’s capital resources?"
  • washington examiner logo
    Excerpt from the Washington Examiner -- "By processing payments through a blockchain, the Fed could cut out the middleman of banks. Everyone could have a deposit account directly with the Fed via the blockchain, allowing for faster payments and far greater control of prices by the central bank. 'If that occurs, the fractional reserve banking system may become a thing of the past,' Yermack said."

    Excerpt from The Wall Street Journal -- "'GE is a relic of a bygone era,' said Robert Salomon, a management professor at New York University’s Stern School of Business. Mr. Salomon said former GE CEO Jack Welch’s status as 'darling of Wall Street' in the 1990s allowed his pursuit of diversification to work when the same approach failed for many other managers and conglomerates."

    Excerpt from Luxury Daily -- "'Considering that younger consumers have shown interest in citizenship and political engagement while many more issues that warrant debate have come to light, it seems that many more brands will openly embrace politics and confidently express their political views,' she said. 'In the end, this is preferable to making mistakes, which is what happens when brands avoid to clearly articulate what they stand for.'"

    Excerpt from Broadcasting & Cable -- "Paul Hardart, clinical professor of marketing at the Leonard H. Stern School of Business at New York University, mentioned a 'more populist' approach by Fox Business Network, while CNBC continues to broadcast to its affluent, well-educated investor base.

  • poets and quants logo
    Excerpt from Poets & Quants -- "According to Gallogly, the EQ endorsement has indeed been 'adding a whole new vantage point through which we can assess the applicant. We felt like there was a gap in the kind of information that could be gathered about an applicant,' Gallogly says today (January 12) in an email exchange with Poets&Quants. 'The EQ endorsement is really a character reference from someone who believes in the applicant’s EQ. It’s an additional dimension that a professional recommendation doesn’t provide by its nature. We’ve received EQ endorsements from mentors, lifelong friends, some from the professional arena — they provide an emotional resonance.'"

    Excerpt from The New York Post -- "'The numbers for New York City probably understate the problem, in that people probably have to leave the city if they are underemployed,' Yannelis added. 'It is not the kind of place to hang around, for instance, if you are unemployed, or in a job and not earning enough, because of the city’s high cost of living.'"

    Excerpt from U.S. News & World Report -- "'I think a lot of people are surprised when I say law,' Sundararajan says. 'You think of this as a staid, full-time profession.' However, online platforms like UpCounsel allow lawyers to provide a variety of legal services on demand. Sundararajan sees the gig economy heading in a direction to allow professionals to create their own businesses and market them entirely online."

  • Bookstr logo 192 x 144
    Excerpt from Bookstr -- "The name of the book is 'Tap: Unlocking the Mobile Economy.' Why I call it Tap is consumers, we are always tapping on our phones and every time we tap on our phones, the phone is generating data about us. Whether it is location data or contextual data or data about the weather or crowdedness of where we are, all of this is being captured, and while sometimes consumers feel a little bit inhibited about what all of the companies are doing with the data, I essentially in my book talk about the massive upsides to both consumers and companies from monetizing that data to make our lives better."

    Excerpt from The Hill -- "Yermack said the transparency of many cryptocurrencies makes it easy to trace payments to their issuers. 'A lot of these currencies have blockchains that are completely transparent and you can monitor them,' Yermack said. 'It’s a double-edged sword. It gives liquidity to people in these countries but it also gives the government a way to prosecute them.'"
  • harvard business review logo feature
    Excerpt from the Harvard Business Review Japan -- (translated from Japanese using Google Translate) "A game is a strategy 'bargaining' by multiple players. In game theory, we focus on the proposition of how to make appropriate decision making among all social phenomena and economic phenomena. When there are multiple players, each action of the players and various factors intertwine with each other to influence each other, predict actions of others and make 'strategic adaptation' which is a decision to make their gains advantageous. It is a theory aimed to guide."

  • huffington post logo feature
    Excerpt from The Huffington Post -- "Adam Alter is a New York Times bestselling author, associate professor of marketing at NYU, and impressively endorsed by the likes of Malcolm Gladwell, Adam Grant, and Arianna Huffington. This book is at once enjoyable and also - to use Alter’s word - 'unsettling'. ... Scott Galloway is a verbal force. This is both a fearless assault on the four biggest companies in the world and an insightful deconstruction of the lessons we can all learn from them."

    Excerpt from InformationWeek -- "What do Marie Curie, Albert Einstein, Benjamin Franklin, Steve Jobs, Dean Kamen, Elon Musk, and Nicola Tesla have in common? Innovation, for one thing. In her forthcoming book, 'Quirky,' author Melissa Schilling explores the traits of these remarkable people. Schilling is also a John Herzog Family professor of Management and Organizations at New York University’s Stern School of Business. One common trait among the legends is the belief that rules don't apply to them, so they're unconstrained by the norms that hold other people back."
