    Excerpt from Bloomberg TV -- "I think there's a strong view that monetary policy has done most of what it can on its own to really generate a recovery. Monetary policy has been really competent. I think there's a strong sense that we are awaiting for the fiscal side of the house, if you will, and for lawmakers to really step up and do what must be done."

    Excerpt from Bloomberg -- "We've got a yield curve that's flat. So the banks can't make money from the spread. And then you have an economy that's not boomed, right? We've had a pick up in lending, but nothing like the lending pick up you naturally would expect in a recovery economy. You've got fintech, which is coming and eating their lunch, certainly looked like it was eating their lunch in certain sectors of a loan market, and you've got new players coming along looking for money transfer, which is another source of profitability on the banks. Regulatory trusts are going up. You can't spend money on new technology. So you have all these things that are hurting the banks here. On the other hand, let's recognize that the banking system will survive. It's just going to be generating returns that are really low."

    Excerpt from The Washington Post -- "What are the implications of the so-called sharing economy, brought on by such companies as Uber, Lyft and Airbnb? That’s what author Arun Sundararajan, a professor at New York University, aims to answer with his new book, 'The Sharing Economy.' In the book, which he’ll discuss on Tuesday at Busboys and Poets, Sundararajan considers what the future could look like if sharing becomes an even bigger economic force."

    Excerpt from Bloomberg -- "'Adding more density to the cities won't work anymore,' says Alain Bertaud, a senior research scholar at New York University who has consulted in China for decades. The problem, he says, is that those cities are increasingly fragmented."

    Excerpt from Bloomberg -- "'You won't find too many technology companies that could lose this much money, this quickly,' said Aswath Damodaran, a business professor at New York University who has written skeptically of Uber's astronomical valuation on his blog. 'For a private business to raise as much capital as Uber has been able to is unprecedented.'"

    Excerpt from The Detroit News -- "'Amazon is the great white shark of retail and its appetite is not that discerning — it will eat anything,' said Scott Galloway, professor of marketing at New York University’s Stern School of Business. 'I think they’ll go after every large consumer category. It’s not if, it’s when.'"

    Excerpt from China Radio International -- "I actually think there's quite a lot to be gained on both sides. Clearly from the ChemChina perspective, this is about technology, specifically about biotechnology. So Syngenta is a very prominent agricultural, agribusiness concern, specializing in seeds and agricultural chemicals, and obviously, there's a big push in China to increase food production, and I think Syngenta has some of the technology that will help with that goal of increasing food production."

    Excerpt from The Atlantic -- "...separating investment and commercial banking would not have prevented the financial crisis, and its re-imposition will not prevent the next one. ... Unfortunately, since the removal of the Glass-Steagall restrictions in 1999 had no connection to the financial crisis of 2008—all of the "bad actors" of the 2008 crisis could have done all of the same things even if Glass-Steagall had been in place—the whole notion of a revival of Glass-Steagall is misguided."

    Excerpt from The Wall Street Journal -- "Stifling short-term rentals isn’t always in a city’s best economic interest, said Arun Sundararajan, a New York University professor of information, operations and management sciences. If cities crack down too hard on Airbnb, they run the risk of losing out to other tourism destinations with a more robust supply of rooms for rent. 'If a city is deeply dependent on tourism, there’s a huge expansion that can come from being a city who has a huge number of affordable and interesting Airbnb listings,' he said."

    Excerpt from Marketplace -- "I'm assuming that we've solved the engineering side of this problem. I'm assuming that. The major challenges now are just dealing with reality. And in fact, one of the objectives of this is to see the kinds of situations where vehicles trip up. In machine learning, this is a big area of research called "adversarial learning" where... you throw an adversary into the mix that just tries to fool you."

    Excerpt from Medical Daily -- "According to the research, people who believed they were high-status individuals were less charitable to others, but only when they felt completely deserving of their status. On the other hand, high status individuals who were humble about their powerful place were more generous than expected."

    Excerpt from Fox 5 NY -- "[The characteristics of those who run for President] tend to be a strong desire for dominance, desire to have control over others, a high level of self-confidence... Unfortunately, sometimes that manifests as a high level of narcissism or a high level of grandiosity."

    Excerpt from CNNMoney -- "'Why would you pay $60 for a ride to the airport when you can pay $20?' said Vasant Dhar, a professor at New York University's Stern School of Business. 'Do you really want to pay an extra $40 for the privilege of having a human drive you? I don't think so.'"

    Excerpt from The New York Times -- "'These zombie loans are just bad for the economy,' said Viral V. Acharya, one of the report’s authors and a specialist in European debt at New York University’s Stern School of Business. 'The problem is that Europe never injected capital into its banks like TARP in the U.S.'"

    Excerpt from Luxury Daily -- "'Considering that British brands have been doing well in the United States, a trend that has grown stronger in the last five years and perhaps will counteract the consequences of Brexit, it is no accident that Victoria Beckham enjoys a positive brand equity in the American market,' [Serdari] said. 'With playful Instavideos being released through Victoria Beckham's Instafeed almost a month before her collection hits the stores the celebrity designer can certainly drive interest in her new, stylishly packaged beauty collection.'"

    Excerpt from Reuters -- "Asset management services are still expensive. Banks generate large spreads on deposits. Finance could and should be much cheaper. In that respect, the puzzle is not that fintech is happening now. The puzzle is why it did not happen earlier."

    Excerpt from Yahoo News -- "Adam L. Alter and Hal E. Hershfield from New York University and UCLA, respectively, found across six studies that at the end of a decade, people become more preoccupied with aging and worries about life’s meaningfulness. The researchers said that such thoughts lead to behaviors that 'suggest a search for, or a crisis of meaning.'"

    Excerpt from Bloomberg -- "'There has been enormous regulatory pressure on financial institutions to reduce risk,' Tuckman said. 'Therefore, deleveraging has not only reduced the overall size of the repo market, but has also increased the fraction of the market in Treasury repo.'"
  • bloomberg logo feat
    Excerpt from Bloomberg -- "'While these banks may meet a weak regulatory test, as the more than 40 percent decline of bank equities over the past year implies, they do not meet the market test,' [Kim Schoenholtz and coauthor Stephen Cecchetti] write. This criticism is consistent with a new research paper published by academic economics Viral V. Acharya, Diane Pierret, and Sascha Steffen. Based on the disclosures made available by the EBA stress test, they estimate that European banks face a capital shortfall of 123 billion euros, when set against U.S. supervisory standards and a 4 percent leverage ratio — also known as a capital-to-asset ratio, a measure that determines how much capital a lender needs to set aside relative to the assets they hold."
  • marketplace radio logo feature
    Excerpt from Marketplace -- "'There’s just less labor content in a manufactured item,' said Robert Whitelaw, professor of entrepreneurial finance at NYU. 'A high-end GE refrigerator only has two hours of labor in it,' he said, adding that automation is also a powerful force at the low end of manufacturing. 'Where labor costs are less important, other things become more important, like distance,' he said."

    Excerpt from the Financial Times -- "Using auction data and game theory, the authors came to the conclusion that full pre-auction information sharing between dealers and investors would raise $4.8bn more revenue for the US Treasury each year than a fully closed bidding mechanism where no information is shared. The paper comes from New York Fed economists Nina Boyarchenko and David Lucca, along with NYU professor Laura Veldkamp."
