    Excerpt from India Education Diary -- "'While we, at NYU Stern, understand the markets and institutions in developed economies to an extent, we need to do much more work to understand more fully the markets and institutions in emerging markets, such as India. The NSE-NYU Stern partnership provides a network of academics interested in studying the Indian financial markets,' said Professor Viral Acharya of NYU Stern."

    Excerpt from Project Syndicate -- "Given that this strategy can be applied to stocks, bonds, currencies, and many other asset classes, smart beta could be the future of asset management. Whether one is investing in normal or abnormal times, applying a scientific, low-cost approach to get a basket with a higher-than-average share of good apples does seem like a sensible approach."

    Excerpt from Financial Times -- "Commentary on topical issues is grounded in realpolitik as much as economic analysis. He believes that Greece leaving the euro would be 'catastrophic' for the global economy because of the risk that Russia would extend its influence in the Balkans. 'It will not happen, because the consequences would be too terrible,' says the 57-year-old about Greece reaching an uneasy deal with its creditors to prevent it crashing out of the eurozone."

    Excerpt from The Guardian -- "In many countries, key slices of the social safety net are tied to full-time employment with a company or the government. Although the broader socioeconomic effects of the gig economy are as yet unclear, it is clear we must rethink the provision of our safety net, decoupling it from salaried jobs and making it more readily available to independent workers."

    Excerpt from PBS NewsHour -- "We’re sort of in a phase where– the model of providing a few hours at a time, or providing to multiple platforms may, in fact, be the most economically efficient one. ... To me, the humane thing isn’t to make everybody a full-time employee, but to extend the safety net to cover people who have alternative forms of work."

    Excerpt from The New York Times -- "Our results revealed a sizable and statistically significant negative relationship between the two: The more powerful people perceived themselves to be in their everyday lives, the less frequently they reported feeling lonely."

    Excerpt from Yahoo! Finance -- "'Whether China grows GDP at 5% or 7% and hits a rough patch or dodges a recession, there are several hundred million people on the cusp of entering the middle class,' he says. Apple products sell well even in tougher economic times, Foudy adds. 'Spending on phones, it's just not like cars, consumer durables [or] things like vacations, which tend to rise and fall with the business cycle,' he says. 'Combine this with a Chinese preference for products that can serve as public signals of success and Apple is well positioned there for future growth.'"
  • hbs working knowledge logo feature
    Excerpt from HBS Working Knowledge -- "When faced with a decision on how to allocate resources between themselves and others, some people are 'pro-social,' meaning they are likely to value more equal distributions of resources, while others are 'pro-self,' meaning they try and maximize value for themselves. ... Santana explores these questions in a new working paper, Because We're Partners: How Social Values and Relationship Norms Influence Consumer Payments in Pay-What-You-Want Contexts, written with Vicki G. Morwitz, the Harvey Golub Professor of Business Leadership and Professor of Marketing at New York University's Stern School of Business."

    Excerpt from Mashable -- "'It's one thing to put infrastructure together, it's another thing to get enough ventures around you where it suddenly starts to look like the place to go as opposed to someone having to be the pioneer to go,' says Jeffrey Carr, a business professor at New York University who focuses on entrepreneurship issues. 'There just is a huge hurdle for this kind of thing to work.'"

    Excerpt from Bloomberg -- "'Because Uber is a brash, hot, growing company, they can often be a focal point for a polarized discussion,' said Arun Sundararajan, a professor at New York University’s Stern School of Business. 'It’s easy to be pro- or anti-Uber.'"

    Excerpt from TheStreet.com -- "...Cook has made the company more attractive for shareholders by exploiting gaps in Apple's current offerings rather than leapfrogging ahead by introducing new products, said Scott Galloway, a professor of marketing at New York University's Stern School of Business."

    Excerpt from The New York Times -- "For society more broadly, Thomas Philippon, a professor at New York University who has studied the economics of the financial industry, said that Wall Street had grown bloated in the three decades before the financial crisis and was shrinking to a size more in keeping with historical norms. 'It’s all for the best,' Mr. Philippon said. 'We had way too many people trading before.'"

  • the conversation logo
    Excerpt from The Conversation -- "In our work, we show that governments with deeper pockets are able to offer more comprehensive deposit insurance programs and are therefore more willing to undertake and disclose informative stress tests. In contrast, fiscally constrained governments cannot afford to guarantee as many deposits and will therefore not risk disclosing detailed information that could cause bank runs."

    Excerpt from Knowledge @ Wharton -- "The president has spoken often about greater engagement in the world, but a principled engagement, and I support that... Nigeria is an enormously important country in Africa, but when we talk about economic development, the other side of that coin is the weakness in governance, and that's really been a challenge for many decades in Nigeria."

    Excerpt from The New York Times -- "... The simplest way to reduce the number of vehicles on the road is to increase the number of people traveling in each vehicle, and these new ridesharing apps hold particular promise on this front. Services like UberPool and Lyft Line use sophisticated algorithms to match people going in the same direction in real-time, increasing vehicle occupancy with minimal rider inconvenience. They are modern-day, market-based, digital successors to yesterday’s neighborhood carpool."
  • wallethub logo
    Excerpt from Wallethub -- "Buying a home is a substantial commitment. In addition to the monthly mortgage payment, there are property taxes, homeowners insurance, and regular maintenance expenses which add up to 3-6% of the value of the house each year. And that is absent major maintenance expenses such as roof replacement, new HVAC systems, kitchen remodeling, etc. Therefore, it is important to have some financial buffer before making the plunge. I think a good rule of thumb is that the total cost of spending on a house should not be much more than a third of total spending budget."

    Excerpt from Planetizen -- "By measuring 20 streetscape features and numerous other variables for 588 blocks in New York City, we were able to identify variables that explain pedestrian traffic volumes. We found significant positive correlations between three out of 20 streetscape features with pedestrian counts after controlling for density and other built environmental variables. The significant streetscape features are the number of pieces of street furniture, the proportion of windows on the street, and the proportion of active street frontage."

  • sports illustrated
    Excerpt from Sports Illustrated -- "Wertheim and Sommers discuss the definition of rivalries, partly based on a study led by New York University Assistant Professor of Management and Organizations Gavin Kilduff, titled 'The psychology of rivalry: a relationally dependent analysis of competition,' which investigates the idea that teams’ similarity and histories can predict rivalry, and that rivalry may affect athletes’ motivation and performance. Can a person have an unrequited rival? Or are rivalries actually quite symmetrical?"
