    Excerpt from Fast Company -- "According to Beth Bechky, who teaches courses in managing high-performance teams at New York University’s Stern School of Business, it’s easy for a team to assume that if the members of a team are still the same, nothing has actually changed. But now that you’re in a new position, even though you’re working with the same people, 'that’s a moment at which everyone needs to reflect on what they’re doing,' Bechky says."
  • valuewalk logo feature
    Excerpt from ValueWalk -- "There are certainly instances of good and bad activism, but each case is unique and should be evaluated on its own merits. To me, it’s undeniable that the trend of shareholders having a greater voice is a positive change that is long overdue."
  • wired logo feature
    Excerpt from WIRED -- "... That flagging optimism may, for good reason, extend to tech. For one, investors may be worried that overvalued tech startups could subject markets to more less-than-stellar IPOs, says New York University business school professor Roy Smith."
  • cnn logo feature
    Excerpt from CNN -- "I think, 2016 from a geopolitical perspective, is the worst risk environment that we've been exposed to. You've got the most powerful terrorist organization in history, you have six failed states in the broader middle east, you have a refugee crisis that is unprecedented. All three of those things will get worse, and that's before you count the weakness and vulnerability of the Saudi Regime, which has, of course, led to the conflict we now have with Iran."
  • citylab logo
    Excerpt from CityLab -- "A productivity analysis of 40 U.S. metros of varying populations, conducted by Shlomo Angel and Alejandro Blei of
 the Urbanization Project at New York University [Stern School of Business], found that cities with twice the number of jobs sustained a labor market nearly double in size within a 'tolerable' commute of 30 (87 percent), 45 (94 percent), or 60 minutes (97 percent)."
  • marketplace radio logo feature
    Excerpt from Marketplace -- "... at Whole Foods, a member of staff regularly comes by to keep things looking neat. Eggers said it’s this kind of attention to detail that makes Whole Foods stand out from its cheaper competitors. 'The whole idea is this emotional connection they build between you and the store that makes you feel guilty if you go somewhere else,' he said. 'That makes you desire to go back, and makes you feel happy when you’re there.'"
  • project syndicate logo feature
    Excerpt from Project Syndicate -- "At the cusp of the new year, we face a world in which geopolitical and geo-economic risks are multiplying. Most of the Middle East is ablaze, stoking speculation that a long Sunni-Shia war (like Europe’s Thirty Years’ War between Catholics and Protestants) could be at hand. China’s rise is fueling a wide range of territorial disputes in Asia and challenging America’s strategic leadership in the region. And Russia’s invasion of Ukraine has apparently become a semi-frozen conflict, but one that could reignite at any time."
  • macleans logo
    Excerpt from Macleans -- "'I hope that firms will realize that consumers prefer simple and straightforward pricing to pricing that they do not understand,' says Vicki Morwitz, a professor of marketing at the Stern School of Business at New York University. 'While consumers may be fooled once by paying for an unexpected surcharge because they do not want to have to begin their shopping all over or admit that they made a mistake, they will be less likely to want to do business again with a firm they feel tricked them into paying more than they thought they should.'"
  • economist logo feature
    Excerpt from The Economist -- "Baruch Lev of New York University has found that companies with higher CSR scores have higher revenue growth. Yet the more vigorous companies are in reducing their taxes, the more they destroy any social capital that they have accumulated through CSR."
  • edge logo feature
    Excerpt from -- "My nomination for 'news that will stay news' is a paper by political scientists Shanto Iyengar and Sean Westwood, titled 'Fear and Loathing Across Party Lines: New Evidence on Group Polarization.' Iyengar and Westwood report four studies (all using nationally representative samples) in which they gave Americans various ways to reveal both cross-partisan and cross-racial prejudice, and in all cases cross-partisan prejudice was larger."
  • scientific american logo feature
    Excerpt from Scientific American -- "Marketing expert Gavin Kilduff of New York University looked at six years of racing data and interviewed runners about their 'rivals'—people of similar age and ability with whom they raced often and felt competitive toward. They found that people ran harder and faster when racing against their rivals."
  • bloomberg logo
    Excerpt from Bloomberg -- "Chipotle's advantage in the market was based partly on having quality food, but also based on this reputation of a trust and a belief that the food had integrity. ... That violation is a serious concern for a company whose reputation is a huge part of their advantage."
  • harvard business review logo feature
    Excerpt from the Harvard Business Review -- "We launched the Mindfulness in Business Initiative (MiB) precisely in order to help students like these leverage their desire for success toward saner, more sustainable, and ethical workplace practices through mindfulness. MiB was founded through Stern’s Leadership Development Program in partnership with NYU’s Global Spiritual Life program. The overall objective of MiB was to plant the mindfulness seed early in MBA students’ lives, equipping them with tools to positively impact others while taking a more fulfilling and balanced approach to their work."
  • cnbc logo feature
    Excerpt from CNBC -- "... I look at an IBM and it's a stock that looks cheap, that's looked cheap for a while and it keeps looking cheap. And unlike the other tech names, for instance Apple, I look at IBM and I can't see anything happening in the business that's exciting. So if it makes it back, it'll be purely as a dividend play. So to me, it's a stock that will continue to look cheap."

    Excerpt from the Financial Times -- "Aswath Damodaran, NYU Stern professor, blames the industry’s short life cycle, which sends chief executives on desperate shopping sprees for growth."
  • south china morning post logo
    Excerpt from South China Morning Post -- "'The defender can try to dilute the acquirer by issuing new shares, but this is hard to do on short notice unless he can line up a sizable new buyer, which may be the case here, who will have terms and requirements of his own,' Smith said."
  • atlantic logo feature
    Excerpt from The Atlantic -- "In the last 35 years we have made huge strides in reducing extreme poverty, progress that is ongoing. In 1980, half the world's population was living below the extreme poverty line; that number has now fallen to 25 percent and continues to decline. A globalized economy has been the main driver, creating millions of new jobs in less developed countries."
  • Womens Wear Daily
    Excerpt from Women's Wear Daily -- "'In my view, this is an opportunity for leaders within BGMEA and Bangladesh to look more broadly at the problem and think about how to solve it. The global brands also have a responsibility. I think they have also made this more difficult by making it clear that subcontracting is not a problem or that they have got it under control. They should also acknowledge that they have benefited enormously from the lack of oversight and the artificially low cost from subcontracting, because it doesn’t require compliance,' [Labowitz] observed."
  • fortune logo feature
    Excerpt from Fortune -- "Its growth depends little on exports, limiting India’s vulnerability to slowing economies elsewhere, and as a major importer of energy and other commodities, it has benefited greatly from the sharply lower prices of the past few years. Most important, it is a place brimming with confidence these days, as Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s economic reform process begins to bear fruit. Modi’s changes, in fact, are already opening India to private investment as never before, setting the country on a path toward becoming the emerging-market world’s biggest success story over the next several years."
  • bloomberg logo new
    Excerpt from Bloomberg -- "'Changes in the market won’t happen overnight,' said Larry White, a professor of economics at New York University’s Leonard N. Stern School of Business. 'You also have to remember, that these companies’ reputations may have been besmirched in areas such as mortgages and structured finance, but not necessarily in markets like corporate bond issuance.'"
  • ndtv logo feature
    Excerpt from NDTV -- "'Our results have significant implications for health experts and policy makers, since interventions in the form of taxes on high calorie foods are highly contentious,' said Mr Singh of the New York University. 'The general perception is that these taxes need to be substantial, at least 20 percent and often as high as 50 percent, to have a meaningful impact. This would be highly regressive since low-income consumers spend a greater proportion of their disposable income on food,' he added."
  • wall street journal logo feature
    Excerpt from The Wall Street Journal -- "Critics say the market is too complex and driven by too many variables for people to predict with any kind of accuracy. 'These market timing forecasts make for great news stories but they are completely and totally useless in investing,' says Aswath Damodaran, a finance professor at New York University."

  • on wall street logo
    Excerpt from On Wall Street -- "Clients can significantly improve their after-tax returns by being more diligent when putting money away for retirement. Vanguard modeled the 'procrastination penalty' to be over 10% of the ending value of the investment when comparing one who funds on Jan. 1 to one who waits until the last moment to make a contribution for the previous calendar year."
  • forte foundation blog logo
    Excerpt from Forté Foundation blog -- "Much work has been done to understand the reasons—both individual and institutional—behind the lack of diversity in leadership across all sectors. But much of the research and the resulting conversations have taken place without fully examining the model of leadership itself."
