    Excerpt from Fortune -- "Latin America, Mexico, and Colombia offer opportunities that Brazil and Chile, let alone Argentina and Venezuela, cannot. Europe is in for a rough ride this year as political consensus on further reform of the eurozone erodes and external threats from various jihadi groups and Vladimir Putin’s Russia add pressure on beleaguered political leaders. Poland offers a rare bright spot."

    Excerpt from Marketplace -- "Anindya Ghose, a professor of IT and marketing at New York University’s business school, says that 'more than 53 percent of search is coming from smartphones, and a big, big part of the smartphone market is owned by Apple.' Ghose also has consulted for Apple and collaborated with Google and Microsoft."
  • science 2.0 logo
    Excerpt from Science 2.0 -- "The change in the law created an opportunity for Graham and his colleague Deepak Hegde, an assistant professor of management and organizations at NYU's Stern School of Business, to examine which inventors were choosing to opt into the secrecy loophole, and whether their patents differed in important ways. They examined 1.8 million granted patents filed at the USPTO from 1995 to 2005 and analyzed the disclosure preferences of the inventors. Their analysis found that, among those not seeking foreign protection, about 85 percent of inventors filing a patent since 2000 chose to disclose information about their patents prior to their approval."
  • huffington post logo feature
    Excerpt from The Huffington Post -- "A study on marriage structure, gender and work, Sreedhari D. Desai, Dolly Chugh and Arthur Brief, concluded: Employed husbands in traditional marriages, compared to those in modern marriages, tend to (a) view the presence of women in the workplace unfavorably, (b) perceive that organizations with higher numbers of female employees are operating less smoothly, (c) find organizations with female leaders as relatively unattractive, and (d) deny, more frequently, qualified female employees opportunities for promotion."
  • time magazine logo feature
    Excerpt from TIME -- "From the outside, Davos doesn’t change much. Political and business leaders from around the world have again descended on this beautiful Swiss ski town for the annual meeting of the World Economic Forum. On the inside, however, each meeting has its own preoccupations and agenda items. Here are five numbers that underscore what’s new — and what remains the same."
  • financial times logo feature
    Excerpt from Financial Times -- "'Whether we like it or not, art is used for tax avoidance and evasion,' said Prof Roubini, himself an art collector. 'It can be used for money laundering. You can buy something for half a million, not show a passport, and ship it. Plenty of people are using it for laundering.'"
  • daily mail logo feature
    Excerpt from The Daily Mail -- "The researchers concluded: 'Consumption can sometimes compensate for our blunders and failures, but this doesn’t always work. Consumers who use products to boost their sense of self-worth tend to dwell on their shortcomings and their ability to exert self-control is impaired.'"
  • quartz logo
    Excerpt from Quartz -- "'It’s one of the famous addresses in American capitalism and finance,' said Richard Sylla, a financial historian at NYU’s Stern School of Business. 'The idea that it would have a bowling alley there, you know, Morgan would probably roll over in his grave.'"

    Prof. Karen Brenner on Marissa Mayer's tenure at Yahoo

    January 21, 2015
    Excerpt from The New York Times -- "'What’s important in all turnarounds is for the C.E.O. to identify where the future lies — to have a plan,' said Karen Brenner, a professor at the New York University Stern School of Business who has studied successful turnarounds."
  • bloomberg logo feature
    Excerpt from Bloomberg -- "A bubble in the leveraged-finance market is growing and may burst in 12 to 18 months, said Edward Altman, a specialist in credit markets who developed a model for predicting corporate bankruptcies. 'We think it’s building,' Altman told a gathering of corporate restructuring experts Wednesday in New York. He said the current 'benign credit cycle' encouraged by low interest rates has been going on for five years and led to a 'frothy' market. 'You’ll be busier at this time next year.'"
  • bloomberg logo feature
    Excerpt from Bloomberg -- "Inequality is worsening in many advanced economies and especially in the United States. You have to ask yourself why. I think it's because technological innovation is capital-intensive and labor-saving because trade and globalization reduces the income and jobs of those who have low skills or are partially skilled... There are lots of factors that are driving [inequality] and it's leading first to social and political instability, but it also negatively affects economic growth because you are redistributing the income from those who spend more to those who save more. So, over time, the fall in the share of labor income is going to have a negative impact on economic growth and aggregate demand."
  • reuters logo feature
    Excerpt from Reuters -- "China is, today, the second largest economy in the world, so if the slowdown in China were to be more than expected, it has significant impact on commodity exporters... it affects both emerging markets and advanced economies alike."
  • financial times logo feature
    Excerpt from Financial Times -- "'Stern Speaks,' a forum organised by members of the Association of Hispanic and Black Business Students, initiated an important dialogue on NYU’s campus about the experience of black people in America. Those of us who attended had the privilege of hearing three brave classmates share their stories, all of which included personal encounters with both individual and institutional racism. When the floor opened to the audience, people mustered the courage to ask uncomfortable questions. Honest and sometimes painful answers were given in reply. A dialogue had begun."
  • project syndicate logo feature
    Excerpt from Project Syndicate -- "At a time of lackluster economic growth, countries around the world are attempting to devise and implement strategies to spur and sustain recovery. The key word is strategy: to succeed, policymakers must ensure that measures to open the economy, boost public investment, enhance macroeconomic stability, and increase reliance on markets and incentives for resource allocation are implemented in reasonably complete packages. Pursuing only some of these objectives produces distinctly inferior results."

    Prof. Anindya Ghose on new cybersecurity legislation

    January 20, 2015
    the guardian logo feature
    Excerpt from The Guardian -- "Despite the massive, high-profile hacks of Sony, Target and Home Depot, new legislation will struggle to gain traction, said Anindya Ghose, professor of Information, Operations and Management Sciences at New York University’s Stern School of Business. 'I don’t think anyone wants to see another Sony. It’s bad for everyone, but I find it difficult to see any legislation going through despite the importance of it,' said Ghose."
  • financial times logo feature
    Excerpt from Financial Times -- "Michael Spence, economics professor at the Stern School of Business, New York University, agreed there were problems in parts of the global economy, but said cheaper energy would boost economies that have experienced demand problems. 'With China still growing and the US improving . . . I doubt the [oil] price decline could be attributed to a sharply negative view of the global economy,' the 2001 Nobel laureate said."

    Excerpt from Luxury Daily -- "'The campaign has been timed well for Valentine’s day, fast approaching, making Intenso a top-of-mind product for women who are looking for something new for their men,' said Thomaï Serdari, Ph.D. brand strategist and adjunct professor of marketing at New York University, New York."
  • bloomberg logo feature
    Excerpt from Bloomberg -- "It’s unlikely competitors will elbow out smaller manufacturers like Sierra Wireless, said Anindya Ghose, a professor at New York University who studies how the trend will affect businesses. Instead, smaller companies could become acquisition targets for technology giants looking to build out their presence in connected devices, Ghose said in an interview from New Delhi, declining to comment on whether Sierra would be a target."
  • economist logo feature
    Excerpt from The Economist -- "Banks are also reporting losses on the Swiss franc trade and this must raise further questions about their risk modelling. The classic approach is the value at risk model (VAR) which NYU Stern explains is used most often by commercial and investment banks to capture the potential loss in value of their traded portfolios from adverse market movements over a specified period."

    Prof. Joseph Foudy on China's economic growth

    cnc world logo feature
    Excerpt from CNC World -- "So it's really time for China to sort of think about what is the quality of growth. And I think anything in the 5 to 7 percent range is actually quite healthy as long as the economy is reforming, moving to a consumption-based economy and moving to an innovation-based economy. So I think it's good news."

    Executive MBA student Zach Blank is profiled

    January 16, 2015
    Excerpt from The New York Times -- "Mr. Blank, 31, is the vice president of Paragon Sporting Goods, a quintessential store for New York athletes — especially when it comes to winter sports like skiing, snowboarding and ice skating. The six-floor family business, on East 18th Street and Broadway in Manhattan, was founded in 1908 by Mr. Blank’s great-grandfather, Phil Blank, an émigré from Ukraine, and his father, Bruce, is the president and chief executive. Mr. Blank is studying for an M.B.A. at New York University’s Stern School of Business."
  • science codex logo
    Excerpt from Science Codex -- "Researchers found that since 2000, most inventors when given the choice opted to disclose information about their patents before patent approval - even small inventors - and this disclosure correlates with more valuable patents."
  • voxeu logo feature
    Excerpt from Vox -- "The tax rate would start out low and would then rise steadily as taxable consumption rises. Under the current income tax, rates can't rise too high without choking off savings and investment. But higher marginal tax rates on consumption actually encourage savings and investment."
  • Deepak Hegde_feature
    In a new study, Professor Deepak Hegde of the NYU Stern School of Business and Stuart Graham of Georgia Institute of Technology discredit the conventional wisdom that public disclosure by inventors of their proprietary knowledge when their patents are pending is costly for them because it alerts rivals and facilitates imitation by others.
