    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 the Financial Times -- "Others caution the world of entertainment has changed dramatically, threatening the perceived safety of movie attendance. With the advent of digital streaming sites such as YouTube and Netflix, 'there are simply more options for people these days', said Sam Craig, a professor at NYU Stern."

    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 Radiate with Betty Liu -- "The bottom line is, the key to being an entrepreneur is you are more risk aggressive than anybody else. You are willing to sign the front of a check to go to work, not the back."
  • wall street journal logo feature
    Excerpt from The Wall Street Journal -- "ComScore’s requirement that the average stock price exceed the target over a 30-day period is a tougher standard than at many companies where stock is granted based on a single day’s price, according to David L. Yermack, a professor of finance at New York University’s Stern School of Business who studies executive compensation."

    Excerpt from China Radio International -- "I think there are a lot of potential benefits from encouraging private hospitals to enter the market and provide care. One of them is about bringing in leading medical technology, which is, you want the best technology available and private hospitals may be one mechanism for bringing that into the country and spreading those technologies around the country."
  • thestreet logo feature
    Excerpt from TheStreet.com -- "'We are in the early stages of a pretty profound shift in how we organize economic activity and a byproduct of that is going to be a radical change in what it means to have a job,' said Sundararajan, the author of the book The Sharing Economy: The End of Employment and the Rise of Crowd-Based Capitalism, published this May by MIT Press."
  • fortune logo feature
    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."
  • Foundation for Economic Education blog logo 192 x 144
    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.'"
  • Inc.
    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."
  • bloomberg logo feat
    Excerpt from Bloomberg -- “'There’s no doubt that you would expect some slowdown, because of the sheer uncertainty, which will affect investment,' King said at an event at the Wall Street Journal in London on Thursday. 'What’s important therefore is to fairly quickly put in place a strategy to help carry out the trade negotiations.'"

    Excerpt from Bankrate -- "'There's a lot of uncertainty and that makes investors -- the capital markets -- nervous, and they run to safety,' White says. 'And safety, at the moment, is the U.S.'"
  • quartz logo
    Excerpt from Quartz -- "'I don’t believe the Indian market will be able to sustain two big domestic players and one big international player,' said Anindya Ghose, director of New York University’s Center for Business Analytics. 'In about three years, I believe, the Indian market will have to consolidate into one international and one domestic player. So it will be Amazon, and either Flipkart or Snapdeal.'"
  • charlie rose logo feature
    Excerpt from Charlie Rose -- "For a hundred years, the individual has been a provider of labor. Now, we're creating a wide variety of models of engagement between the individual and the institution that sort of allow the individual to... ascend past that labor provider rule, and take on some form of ownership."
  • the guardian logo feature
    Excerpt from The Guardian -- "A study out of the NYU Stern School of Business found women in positions of power are consistently considered to be less trustworthy than men holding the same positions; the study was recently replicated and reconfirmed by Anderson Cooper. And research from the Barbara Lee Foundation pinpoints a pedestal effect, where when a woman running for office fails to meet a high bar set for her she is disproportionately dinged by the public, more than her male counterparts."
  • Al Jazeera Logo
    Excerpt from Al Jazeera -- "There's tremendous uncertainty. Not only is there the economic uncertainty that was created by the referendum decision, but also there is very significant political uncertainty. The Labour Party is in disarray. There is a leadership battle for the Conservative Party. We don't also see a very strong politician who might be willing to reverse the referendum decision at the Parliament level. That would be the best of all worlds, in my opinion. But we don't see somebody like that. So we are still in very major uncertainty."
  • wall street journal logo feature
    Excerpt from The Wall Street Journal -- "Very long run forces are pushing us toward automation and the increasing substitution of capital for labor. As we get there, there is a shift in how we are organized at work. It reflects the fact that we have these platforms coming between the firm and the market. There will be labor that in some ways doesn’t fit into either."

    Excerpt from Reuters -- "'Bangladesh is still very competitive, so we may not see a dramatic pullout,' said Labowitz of the Center for Business and Human Rights. 'But there may perhaps be a slow trickle of buyers losing confidence and looking elsewhere,' she said."
  • bloomberg view logo
    Excerpt from Bloomberg View -- "A model set up by economists at New York University regularly performs a sort of simplified stress test on the world's largest financial institutions. It does so by asking the stock market what it thinks about the value and riskiness of the banks' assets, then using that information to estimate what would happen to the banks in a severe crisis -- and how much added equity capital they would need to avoid distress."
  • business insider logo feature
    Excerpt from Business Insider -- "In this case, according to Galloway, Tesla did three things right:

    It acknowledged the problem in a blog post on its website Thursday.
    Had the top guy address the matter head-on.
    And it overcorrected; reiterating Autopilot's limitations, and reminding drivers to stay alert, even with the feature activated."

    Excerpt from Indianapolis Business Journal -- "New York University real-estate professors Jeanne Calderon and Gary Friedland are the foremost academic experts on EB-5 and published 'A Roadmap to the Use of EB-5 Capital.' The database lists 27 major projects that have sought a total of $5.4 billion in EB-5 financing."
  • new york times logo feature
    Excerpt from The Harvard Business Review -- "What’s tripping us up? Robert H. Frank, a Cornell economist and the author of Success and Luck, provides one explanation: We just don’t see the large role that chance events play in people’s life trajectories. If someone lands a great job and makes lots of money, we interpret those outcomes as evidence of smarts and hard work. (We look at our own lives the same way.) As for those who don’t thrive? Well, we tell ourselves, maybe they’ve caught a bad break here and there, but they could turn things around if they tugged on their bootstraps a bit harder."
  • forbes logo feature
    Excerpt from Forbes -- "In a recent paper, Thomas Philippon from New York University finds the annual cost of financial intermediation in the U.S., which is roughly 2%, is the same now as it was in the late nineteenth century. This leads him to conclude that the US finance industry has showed no efficiency gains at all over 130 years."
