    Excerpt from Financial News -- "It would be momentous and unprecedented for the Fed openly to force a bank to break up. But the power to do so under Dodd-Frank is certainly there, though the process is complex and can be appealed. Dudley’s cultural workshop may actually be less about culture and more a blunt warning to those banks the Fed considers to be moving too slowly in transforming themselves into the well-managed entities it wants. Those banks know who they are. As Dudley says, they need to 'get on with it'."

    Excerpt from Financial Times -- "In the adverse scenario of the ECB stress tests, capital adequacy is 5.5 per cent of risk-weighted assets while our measure is 5.5 per cent of total quasi assets. When risk weights do not adequately reflect risk, which has been widely observed for both European and US financial reports, then this measure of capital adequacy can be highly misleading. In an earlier study, Acharya, Engle and Pierret ('Testing Macroprudential Stress Tests: The Risk of Regulatory Risk Weights', Journal of Monetary Economics, 2014), we found that risk weights were negatively related to conventional measures of firm risk."

    Excerpt from Daily Mail -- "Roubini reckons hinting at that famous Chinese economic 'bubble' that credit fueled investment, will result in more bad assets for the banks and shadow banks, more bad investments in real estate, infrastructure and excess manufacturing capacity and more non-performing assets in the public sector."
     
  • huffington post logo feature
    Excerpt from The Huffington Post -- "...the biggest worry of all should be the most important person in the room. The reaction of that one person to your presentation is probably going to be the biggest factor in whether or not your presentation will be successful at accomplishing your goal. And that's true whether there are two people or 20 in the room."
  • poets and quants logo
    Excerpt from Poets & Quants -- "At Stern, mindfulness is the buzzword. The school is teaming up with NYU’s Center for Global and Spiritual Life to incorporate mindfulness in business leadership. Caitlin Weaver, Stern’s director of Leadership Development, says the shift to incorporate mindfulness training in the leadership program is two-fold—to increase decision making ability and to improve the the health of students."
  • wired logo feature
    Excerpt from WIRED -- "Coding education has taken off in recent years, driven by reports that the demand for quality programmers in America is drastically outpacing the supply. So everyone from the White House to Google has jumped on the coding bandwagon. Meanwhile, bootcamps have sprung up across the country. But the challenge is there’s no way for employers to know that the so-called graduates of these programs are any good. 'They’re new. They don’t have track records, so it’s hard to look at a person who’s graduating and evaluate and screen them,' says Prasanna Tambe, an NYU professor specializing in IT work force."
  • wall street journal logo feature
    Excerpt from The Wall Street Journal -- "Professor Altman’s research found that serial bankruptcy filers had a significantly worse financial profile than the average sample of reorganized companies—whether measured in terms of corporate liquidity, solvency, profitability or leverage. Moreover, he predicted that serial filings would likely increase in the context of the increased predilection of investors and other stakeholders to focus Chapter 11 activity and reorganization plans on financial re-engineering, as opposed to operational performance improvement, of the distressed business."

    Excerpt from mbaMission -- "In this competition, Stern and Kanbar students develop short films based on the sponsor’s specifications regarding content, length, and brand message. The films are judged by a panel of advertising and marketing executives, and the winning teams are given access to the resources of partnering media, entertainment, and communications companies to assist in screenplay production. The finished films—which are debuted at New York’s Tribeca Film Center—may be used by the sponsoring brand as part of the parent company’s advertising campaign."
  • Washington Monthly Logo
    Excerpt from Washington Monthly -- "Economist Thomas Philippon found that financial services themselves have become less, not more, efficient over this time period. The unit cost of financial services, or the percentage of assets it costs to produce all financial issuances, was relatively high at the dawn of the twentieth century, but declined to below 2 percent between 1901 and 1960. However, it has increased since the 1960s, and is back to levels seen at the early twentieth century. Whatever finance is doing, it isn’t doing it more cheaply."
  • straits times logo
    Excerpt from Straits Times -- "No president can sustain an expensive, ambitious foreign policy without reliable public support. In America, that support is no longer there - and unless there is another major terrorist attack on US soil, it isn't coming back in the foreseeable future."

    Excerpt from Quartz -- "Looking ahead at the future of Ferguson after the events of recent weeks, it seems certain that the overwhelming African-American majority will press for empowerment in municipal affairs. This transition needs to come with a parallel effort to strengthen the municipal economy."
     
  • harvard business review logo feature
    Excerpt from Harvard Business Review -- "But what many economists generally gloss over is a notion that I will argue is highly complementary to market failures: management failures. For policy-making purposes economists assume that all businesses act rationally in the pursuit of profits. The possibility that that might not be the case is generally ignored, or even when mentioned, quickly finessed."
  • cctv logo
    Excerpt from CCTV -- "I think [Mario Draghi] will act. He said he's expected to buy assets. He hasn't said he's going to buy something specific, but he says he is expected to, and he also said that it's a unanimous decision. So he's pushing in that direction, but I think that there is resistance from Germany, and we'll see how it turns out. We're not sure."
  • The Wall Street Journal
    Excerpt from The Wall Street Journal -- "Through data collected from 1984 to 2013, New York University Professor Edward Altman found two factors are most indicative of a debtor filing again: its profitability upon its first emergence and its leverage. The data reveals that for recidivist debtors, their financial profiles upon exiting their first bankruptcy tended to resemble that of other firms as they entered bankruptcy—namely too much debt and too much leverage. This data supports what restructuring professionals have experienced anecdotally. Sometimes a plan is premised on the best available recapitalization structure, which is not necessarily the right structure."

    Excerpt from The Atlantic -- "The index finds that globalization began deepening once again last year after reaching a post-crisis plateau in 2012—but it’s far from the deeply connected world sold by globalization advocates."
  • wealthtrack logo
    Excerpt from Wealthtrack -- "In the seventies, [American corporations] had a lot of competition. Globalization was a factor in making corporations, for the first time in some decades, have a lot of international competition. And they suffered a little bit from that. And I think then, as they were suffering, academics said, oh, the corporations really need to do a better job and the way to do it is, picking up on Milton Friedman, they should focus on maximizing shareholder value. They shouldn't do all these other things. They shouldn't think about the workers that much, or the suppliers or the community. Just maximize profits. And this was an academic thing. I'm an academic. I saw it happen."

    In a new study, NYU Stern Professor Deepak Hegde and Bhaven Sampat of Columbia University investigate whether lobbying by special interest groups affects funding for research by the National Institutes of Health (NIH), a publicly funded federal agency and the world’s largest funder of medical research – nearly $30 billion each year.
  • marketplace radio logo feature
    Excerpt from Marketplace -- "'Teaser marketing' has become the norm, Lieberman says. Those teases, trailers, viral marketing, piecemeal cast and crew announcements are coming earlier, thanks to the web and the crowded comic book movie market. 'They’re saying, "Look, don’t worry, don’t start shifting allegiances, because we’re coming with these movies every year for the next five-year period,"' Craig says."

  • bloomberg logo feature
    Excerpt from Bloomberg -- "In the next decade, it could be the first time in 30 years that India is growing faster than China because China... has a movement from capital-intensive to labor-intensive growth. So growth in China could go towards 5% in the next few years, while India, with the right reform, could go towards 7%. So for the first time ever, the tortoise becomes the hare and the hare becomes the tortoise."
