    Excerpt from The New York Times -- "Thomas Philippon, a finance professor at New York University’s Stern School of Business, is another academic who has studied the role of finance in the economy. In a November 2012 article in The Quarterly Journal of Economics, Mr. Philippon and Ariell Reshef, an economist at the University of Virginia, reported on wages in the United States financial industry from 1909 to 2006. Among their findings: Finance accounted for 15 to 25 percent of the overall increase in wage inequality between 1980 and 2006."

    Excerpt from Project Syndicate -- "Over time, of course, negative nominal and real returns may lead savers to save less and spend more. And that is precisely the goal of negative interest rates: In a world where supply outstrips demand and too much saving chases too few productive investments, the equilibrium interest rate is low, if not negative. Indeed, if the advanced economies were to suffer from secular stagnation, a world with negative interest rates on both short- and long-term bonds could become the new normal."

    Excerpt from The Economist -- "A recent paper* by Uma Karmarkar of Harvard Business School and Bryan Bollinger of Duke Fuqua School of Business finds that shoppers who bring their own bags when they buy groceries like to reward themselves for it. For two years the authors tracked transactions at a supermarket in America. Perhaps unsurprisingly, shoppers who brought their own bags bought more green products than those who used the store’s bags. But the eco-shoppers were also more likely to buy sweets, ice cream and crisps."

    Excerpt from Fox Business -- "When you're talking about economic growth, it is innovation that's the driver of that growth. So the way you increase growth, you have to have a vested increase in increasing the pace of innovation. And the way you increase the pace of innovation is increase the exchange of ideas - or between different industries. So, New York has a tremendous advantage because it's not just tech.... you know, fashion, media... it's all mixing of ideas."

    Excerpt from Business News Network -- "I think that when we, nowadays, have so much electronic trading, and we have guidelines on what type of collaborations among competitors are allowed, having five competitors chatting live in a way that is not disclosed to the market on what the prices of gold, on which they have a variety of derivatives benchmarked on, and at the time when they themselves are trading for their clients and their own books, and nobody is monitoring... and ensuring that this process is robust, that is extremely problematic. It's very problematic also because we do see the patterns in the data."
  • The New York Times
    Excerpt from The New York Times -- "If this era of war ever ends, and we emerge from the slumber of automated killing to the daylight of moral questioning, we will face a reckoning. If we are honest with ourselves, the answers won’t be simple."

    Excerpt from HuffPost Live -- "I do think that there are some merits to allowing states to have a say in directing the flow of immigration because they understand local costs imposed by immigrants... and also the benefits. I think one advantage that the state-based visa would have, for example, over an employment-based visa is that the immigrants themselves would have more flexibility within the states. So they'd be able to work for any number of different employers. That would create a thicker labor market, which would, of course, benefit employers as well. So there would be a higher potential for good matches between employers and workers. In the existing system, if you take, for example, the H1B specialty employment visa, it ties a worker to one employer. So you don't have that kind of labor market flexibility, which is ultimately detrimental to the immigrant and the economy and the labor market."

'It couldn’t just be that every company was "on a journey"; we needed metrics and ways to evaluate compliance.'"

    Excerpt from The Wall Street Journal -- "Nicholas Economides, an economics professor at New York University, says paid prioritization would let ISPs pick the Internet’s winners, which would naturally be the richest players. 'In an industry with lots of change and innovation, there are big dangers of allowing only the people who can pay you today to win,' he said."

    Excerpt from Forbes -- "The Harvard Business School Case, El Bulli: A Taste of Innovation, provides business lessons from the way Ferran Adria innovates (the Catalan chef, thought by many to be the most creative chef in history) and it truly changed my life. Ferran’s methods inspired both my book, Catalyzing Innovation and innovation program for global executives, Inventours™, and it made me far more observant of how others innovate across industries, wherever I go. Given how much I learned by studying Ferran, I thought learning how the best 'mixologists' innovate could yield similar insights, given the art and entertainment form inventive craft cocktails have become."

    Excerpt from CKGSB Knowledge -- "[Economides's] models suggest that even small network effects can help a good company realize high profits, more sales and greater profits, and the stronger the effect, the more likely that the company will be able to achieve a monopoly position. 'If we have a network, we will see a lot of inequality among companies, which means that some people are going to make a lot of money,' he says."

    Excerpt from Bloomberg -- "It's a great time to be a writer, someone who's trying to greenlight a script. There's going to be more original scripted series this year than, I think, in the history of television. It's just not a great time to be in the business of selling eyeballs on an ad-supported model. HBO, great business. Netflix, great business. Amazon media might be a great business. Trying to get a ton of people to show up and then selling commercials to beer companies, that's going to be a difficult business."

    Excerpt from Poets & Quants -- "Advanced Professional Certificate students are to take 15 units, a quarter of the number required for an MBA, on a part-time basis, in MBA classes that have capacity. Each student will follow one of three tracks: finance, marketing, or general business. 'The finance track could quickly empower people who didn’t major in finance in college, but who now work in the industry, with a broader perspective that helps them excel in their function,' says Isser Gallogly, assistant dean of MBA admissions. 'Liberal arts majors can combine the fundamentals of marketing with the latest thinking in analytics and digital through the marketing track. Entrepreneurs without a business degree can customize the handful of business courses they want to take in the general business track. Others with an MBA may want to delve into a new area of interest.'"
