    Excerpt from Council on Foreign Relations -- "The Dodd-Frank Act grew out of a need to 'address this increasing propensity of the financial sector to put the entire system at risk and eventually to be bailed out at taxpayer expense,' said a 2011 report by New York University’s Stern School of Business. ... 'The Fed has a great deal more responsibility,' says Thomas Cooley, a professor at New York University’s Stern School of Business and one of the editors of the 2011 report. 'It is the primary watchdog for identifying systemically risky institutions of all types,' he explains."

    Excerpt from Bloomberg -- "After years of rising wages eroded its position as the world’s bargain manufacturer, China is striving to build its own brands and improve product quality and design. Those advances are crucial to maintaining the high growth needed to make the leap from middle- to high-income status -- a jump only five economies have managed, including Taiwan, Hong Kong and Singapore, according to Nobel laureate Michael Spence."

    Excerpt from Nikkei Asian Review -- "In an interview with the Nikkei Asian Review in Hong Kong on May 5, Brenner said the perception that the VIX has "predictive power" is something promoted by '[news]letter writers and analysts, people who write to the clients." But for him, "I just use the word nonsense. It doesn't have predictive power.' Brenner was in Hong Kong to commemorate the 10th anniversary of a joint master's program on global finance involving NYU and the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology which he teaches."

    Excerpt from The Atlantic -- "Arun Sundararajan, a professor at New York University and the author of The Sharing Economy, notes that these companies might have an edge over automakers when it comes to winning over consumers’ trust. 'Wouldn’t you be more inclined to rely on the software and cybersecurity ingenuity of Google, Uber, Didi, Lyft, Amazon, Apple or Tesla (the exception), rather than trusting the digital capabilities of Ford, Toyota, Daimler or BMW?' he asked rhetorically in a comment shared with reporters."

    Excerpt from Crain's New York -- "'Previously these systems had to be programmed, and they did one task and they did what they were programmed to do,' Dhar explained. 'Now you've got machines that are capable of learning on their own. They can learn how to learn, and therefore they can displace humans in pretty large numbers.'"

    Excerpt from The New Yorker -- "'Someone who’s hosting on Airbnb might say, "Well, this is my space. I only want a certain kind of guest in my spare bedroom,"' Arun Sundararajan, an N.Y.U. business professor, says. Is that unreasonably discriminatory? In a new book, 'The Sharing Economy,' he proposes a halfway measure like Airbnb’s: self-regulation in collaboration with government."

    Excerpt from The New York Times -- "Data posted by Aswath Damodaran, a New York University finance professor, for example, shows that since 1928, stocks returned about 9.5 percent, annualized, compared with only 4.9 percent for 10-year Treasury bonds and 3.5 percent for three-month Treasury bills. In that horse race, stocks won by a mile. 'Many studies have shown that stocks outperform bonds over all, and I don’t question that data at all,' he said in an interview."

    Excerpt from the Financial Times -- "Using data from Aswath Damodaran, which covers the full set of listed Japanese companies excluding financials, the EV/EBITDA ratio is about 7.4, compared to more than 12 for the US. (For Western Europe, the figure is about 9.4.)"
  • economist logo feature
    Excerpt from The Economist -- "He helped move economics beyond the narrow ideal of perfect competition by introducing the idea of contestable markets, in which competitive pressure comes from the worry that rivals will swoop in to vie for a market if incumbents are anything other than ruthlessly efficient. Perfectly contestable markets should be just as efficient as perfectly competitive ones, even if only a handful of firms dominate a business. His framework gave economists a way to model what they previously could not: why some industries have lots of firms and others have just a few. Firms should enter the market until all are operating at the most efficient scale (so they cannot cut costs by selling more or fewer units). He was not preaching the Panglossian infallibility of markets. Rather, he helped economists understand why some industries might be more concentrated than others—and when oligopoly is a consequence of corporate chicanery rather than market efficiencies."
  • economist logo feature
    Excerpt from The Economist -- "Investors, whose priority is usually citizenship rather than a financial reward, have shown themselves willing to accept returns of less than 1%. After intermediaries have taken their cut, the cost of capital to developers is typically 4-6%, about two thirds lower than conventional sources of finance for the industry, according to Gary Friedland, a real-estate expert at New York University. Kushner Companies will save $30m-40m by financing 15% of its new property with EB-5 visas, he estimates."

    Excerpt from The New York Times -- "Professor Baumol, who taught for decades at both Princeton University and New York University, identified what has come to be known as Baumol’s cost disease. This so-called affliction is actually a critically important economic insight that explains why the cost of services, like haircuts and college educations, rises faster than the cost of goods, like T-shirts."
