    Excerpt from OZY -- "'Putting the right information in front of the right people sounds really easy — but it’s really hard to do,' says Prasanna Tambe, professor of information, operations and management sciences at NYU’s Stern School of Business. Which explains why Frei and Mader’s firm, the Seattle-based Smartsheet, founded a decade ago, is suddenly having its moment, slap-bang in the middle of the business world’s productivity zeitgeist."

    Excerpt from The New York Post -- "'The weak jobs report this morning was surprising — even if in line with some other weaker economic data published as of late and the reality that a stronger dollar is hurting exports,' said New York University economics professor Joe Foudy."
  • the guardian logo feature
    Excerpt from The Guardian -- "High-end experiences, Alter points out, are increasingly devoid of choice: just as at the dawn of the automotive era, Henry Ford dictated that Americans could drive any color of black Model T, at the fanciest restaurants in New York, people pay extravagant sums to eat tasting menus dictated by top chefs. 'You want the producer to make some of these decisions for you,' Alter says. Luxury is found in limitations. 'There’s something comforting in knowing that for a very high-end product that it’s going to be curated for you by an expert,' Alter says. 'I would never let anyone curate a $5 meal for me.'"

    Excerpt from Fox Business -- "Well, they are receiving only enough money to make sure they're not going to default in the short run, but there is not yet an agreement between Greece and the troika. And if an agreement has not been reached in the next few weeks, you could have a Greek accident... I think the risk of a Greek accident is still large because the two sides are negotiating, but they are very, very far apart."
  • time magazine logo feature
    Excerpt from TIME -- "It’s clear that Obama and Netanyahu don’t trust or like each other. But the widening divide between these countries can’t be reduced to a personality conflict between leaders. Differences in the interests and worldviews of the two governments are becoming more important."
  • the verge logo
    Excerpt from The Verge -- "A choice of just two, even three, providers isn’t enough to create a competitive market that will keep a check on prices, said Nicholas Economides, an economics professor at New York University who studies telecommunications. 'The only competition that remains is between telephone internet service providers and cable internet service providers — if you have it,' Economides said. 'That’s the real problem, and that’s why we don’t have enough competition and higher prices.'"
  • harvard law blog logo feature
    Excerpt from Harvard Law Blog -- "Academic studies, including our own, have previously documented empirical evidence of informed trading ahead of major corporate events such as earnings announcements, mergers and acquisitions (M&A) and corporate bankruptcies."
  • financial executive logo
    Excerpt from Financial Executive -- "Regaining investors’ trust and support should be at the top of managers’ agendas. There are no shortcuts or magic tricks to achieve this task. It requires a substantial shift in managers’ conception of investors’ needs and the workings of capital markets, and a persistent execution of a capital markets strategy, based on honesty, relevant information sharing and smart communication with investors."
  • us news and world report logo feature
    Excerpt from US News -- "Budgeting for the year is better largely because people feel less confident in monthly estimates, so they tend to add more of a buffer for unexpected expenses, according to research by University of Southern California’s Gulden Ulkumen, Cornell University's Manoj Thomas​ and New York University’s Vicki Morwitz​. The professors suggest taking a longer term view for a more accurate budget that you can stick with."
  • project syndicate logo feature
    Excerpt from Project Syndicate -- "Indeed, as the euro weakens, the periphery countries’ external accounts have swung from deficit to balance and, increasingly, to surplus. Germany and the eurozone core were already running large surpluses; in the absence of policies to boost domestic demand, those surpluses have simply risen further. Thus, the ECB’s monetary policy will take on an increasingly beggar-thy-neighbor cast, leading to trade and currency tensions with the United States and other trade partners."
  • huffington post logo feature
    Excerpt from The Huffington Post -- "'We’re probably at a tipping point,' said Irv Schenkler, a clinical professor of management communication at New York University’s Stern School of Business. Things have certainly evolved since 2012, when no Fortune 500 companies opposed North Carolina’s proposed law banning same-sex marriage."
  • financial times logo feature
    Excerpt from Financial Times -- "Thomas Philippon, professor of finance at New York University’s Stern school of business, has found little evidence of such a boost to productivity, at least for the finance industry as a whole. His research suggests the costs of finance to society remain fairly static, at about 1.5-2 per cent of the total amount being intermediated."
  • bbc news logo feature
    Excerpt from BBC -- "People have been able to raise the amount that they wanted to raise, but they falter on the actual delivery. On issues like packaging, on issues like fulfilling the actual amount of orders."
  • winston-salem journal
    Excerpt from Winston-Salem Journal -- "'More than 225 years have passed since Alexander Hamilton created one of the nation’s first commercial banks,' the authors said. 'Over time, these institutions have changed hands, names and locations, reflecting a wave of mergers, acquisitions and other restructuring efforts that echo changes in American finance.'"
  • sourcing journal online logo
    Excerpt from Sourcing Journal Online -- "'Labowitz describes Bangladesh’s RMG sector as a hub and spoke model of production, where the hub factories are the ones that have direct relationships with foreign brands, are often in good condition, with their own power plants, and are well lit and ventilated. And those hub factories have a lot of relationships with spoke factories. 'The spoke factories are the invisible factories,' Labowitz said. They are often in mixed-use buildings, above auto repair shops, for example, and some don’t appear on any registry of factories in Bangladesh. Labowitz and her partner Dorothée Baumann-Pauly, co-authors of the report, 'Business as Usual is Not an Option,' are currently conducting research on how many unregistered facilities there are in Bangladesh.'"
  • financial times logo feature
    Excerpt from Financial Times -- "Stephen Cecchetti and Kermit Schoenholtz have a more conventional but also more exhaustive and detailed guide to secular stagnation. It includes a couple of more possible causes: most interesting are demographics (which is slowing the growth of the labour force) and high debt (which may reduce demand). They also very usefully sort them into supply-side and demand-side mechanisms."
  • Linkedin logo
    Excerpt from LinkedIn -- "An exit can be done well, and it can be done badly. Even if you really hate your boss and loathe your job, you still want to leave a good last impression. Be professional. Out of sight isn’t out of mind. These people can be useful for networking, recommendations or business referrals — and you never know where your career will take you. You may circle back as an employee, a client, or something altogether unexpected."
  • time magazine logo feature
    Excerpt from TIME -- "Now there’s the AIIB. For decades, Washington has used its dominant influence in the World Bank, International Monetary Fund (IMF) and Asian Development Bank to strengthen relations with European and Asian partners and guide developing countries toward Western values by conditioning aid on U.S.-backed reforms. Those countries had no choice: there was no credible alternative to the U.S.-led system. That’s changing."
  • project syndicate logo feature
    Excerpt from Project Syndicate -- "In my view, it is difficult to make a strong case for a significant sustained increase in earnings growth in this environment, meaning that growth alone would not justify current equity valuations. But the lower-discount-rate argument is more persuasive, and is consistent with underlying economic conditions and central banks’ mandates."
  • nation news
    Excerpt from Nation News -- "The countries that have managed to produce higher standards of living have done so because their leaders have demonstrated three basic principles. They have demonstrated discipline, they have demonstrated clarity and the combination of discipline and clarity will produce trust amongst the people in their leadership about the direction of their country."
  • new york magazine
    Excerpt from New York Magazine -- "After analyzing the transactions, Karmarkar and Bollinger found small but statistically significant trends associated with bringing reusable bags. First, those with reusable bags were slightly more likely — 0.25 percent — to buy organic basics like milk and eggs. One green behavior may provide a gentle nudge into another, the researchers conclude. But those who brought their own bags were also slightly more likely — 1.24 percent — to buy indulgent (nonorganic) items, like potato chips and candy."
  • cnc world logo feature
    Excerpt from CNC World -- "The idea of having an Asian infrastructure investment bank is a very good one. The needs for infrastructure development are enormous. The fact that China and other more developed or developing countries have the resources to channel through a development bank is clear, so it's basically a very good idea."
  • CKGSB Logo
    Excerpt from CKGSB Knowledge -- "One New York University economist sees the availability of on-tap computing and memory storage as a particularly important new advantage. Where 10 years ago, a start-up had to invest significant money in computer systems, today it will simply rent the computing power it needs, says Nicholas Economides, a professor of economics at NYU’s Stern School of Business and a noted scholar on network effects. 'Now you can just go to Amazon or Microsoft or Google and rent computing power at a very low price, so innovating has become much cheaper.'"

    Excerpt from CBS News -- "'Because of the fact that Uber's brand and Lyft's brand have emerged very rapidly and have sort of taken on the sheen of, you know, "This is a big company; I can trust this company,"' Sundararajan said. But he urged caution. 'Until we understand what the risks associated with this are, and that can only come with time, I would be cautious about engaging in behaviors like sending kids alone in an Uber or Lyft,' he said."

    Excerpt from Xinhua -- "Associate professor at New York University's Stern School Jennifer Carpenter believes that the current Chinese A-share bubble does not exist, but as the A shares continue to rise, the market volatility will increase."
