    Excerpt from Bloomberg -- "I think the consumer always wins, and the consumer wants a great multi-channel experience. They want products available online, they want the convenience and scale of online, but they also want to be able to go into these great flexible warehouses called stores, and stores are still a great shopping experience. When you look at the e-commerce companies that are really killing it, like Warby Parker, they've opened stores."

    Excerpt from Kathimerini -- "The Obama administration is at a crossroads. If its primary message is that allies need to do far more of the heavy lifting (the American intention when the bombing started), the administration needs to send the clearest possible signals that American efforts will have sharp constraints. If it's that the United States will be out in front in an aggressive and accelerated campaign against ISIS, then it needs to show that all options are on the table. That could include more reliance on American enemies who have common cause against ISIS—even if those enemies are reviled by key Sunni partners."

    In a new study, Professor JP Eggers of the NYU Stern School of Business and Lin Song of the Central University of Finance and Economics in Beijing find that serial entrepreneurs whose previous ventures failed are likely to blame the external environment and to change industries for their subsequent ventures.

    Excerpt from Financial Times -- "Nouriel Roubini offers a very level-headed reminder that the point of negative interest rates is just the same reason we want low interest rates in normal cases of weak demand. Their job is to reduce excess savings and stimulate aggregate spending."
  • wall street journal logo feature
    Excerpt from The Wall Street Journal -- "At the core of all of these businesses is what’s known as a two-sided market, in which companies must create markets for both labor (think Uber drivers) and customers. Just getting one of these markets going can be daunting. 'It’s the "cold start" problem,' says John Horton, professor at NYU Stern and formerly the staff economist at oDesk, a site that pairs freelancers with employers. 'In general, no one wants to come to your market if you don’t have the other side of the market,' he adds."

    Excerpt from Financial Times -- "'CCAR has become the binding capital constraint for the financial sector,' says Viral Acharya, professor of economics at the NYU Stern School of Business."
  • wall street journal logo feature
    Excerpt from The Wall Street Journal -- "At the DLD15 Conference in January, Scott Galloway, a marketing professor at New York University, said Apple shares many of the characteristics of a luxury brand, from high prices to its 'self-expressive benefit,' or the idea that owning Apple products can help make you more appealing to other people. This has allowed Apple to continue selling iPhones at higher margins even as pricing pressure has taken a toll on competitors’ profits."
  • los angeles times logo feature
    Excerpt from Los Angeles Times -- "The replacement of AT&T with Apple is emblematic of how the Dow has managed to adapt to changes in markets and the economy, said Richard E. Sylla, a historian of financial institutions and markets at New York University's Stern School of Business. 'AT&T, which was in the Dow for much of the 20th century, was how people used to make phone calls,' he said. 'Now Apple is the way people make phone calls.'"

    Excerpt from TIME -- "In Israel, public support for Prime Minister Netanyahu has decreased; his Likud party is in a tight race against the opposition party. But even if his support is waning at home, Netanyahu’s approval in the United States has grown. Almost twice as many Americans view Netanyahu favorably as unfavorably (45% v. 25%), a gain of 10 points since 2012."
  • global finance magazine logo feature
    Excerpt from Global Finance -- "'It is a critical step,' says April Klein, professor of accounting at New York University Stern School of Business. 'Accounting firms are trying to be more family-friendly and are attracting more women to their ranks, so having a woman in the top spot is very important.'"
  • barrons logo feature
    Excerpt from Barron's -- "But is Etsy another sign of the seeming technology bubble? Not necessarily, according to Aswath Damodaran, a finance professor at NYU’s Stern School. There should be more truth in labeling, he writes on his blog: 'In my book, Tesla Motors [TSLA] is an automobile company, Uber is a car service (or transportation) company, and Lending Club [LC] is a financial-services company, and none of them should be categorized as technology companies. The fact that these firms use technology innovatively or to their advantage cannot be used as justification for treating them as technology companies, since technology is now part and parcel of even the most mundane businesses.'"
  • new york post logo feature
    Excerpt from The New York Post -- "'The market’s negative reaction Friday tells you just how great the jobs report is,' said New York University economics professor Joe Foudy. 'It’s now betting on a 50-50 rate hike in June.'"
  • new york times logo feature
    Excerpt from The New York Times -- "Cecchetti and Schoenholtz argue that given a little time banks or other financial institutions ought to be able to store currency for clients at very low cost — as they say, turning back into the goldsmiths from which banks as we know them evolved — and might even be able to provide some checking-like services on the side."
  • fast company logo feature
    Excerpt from Fast Company -- "New York-based KitSplit is a self-declared 'Airbnb for creative equipment' that allows production companies, studios, and individual artists to lease out their unused equipment for short-term periods. The company, which launched in December, takes a 15% commission from the rental of equipment leased online. As of this writing, more than $1 million worth of cameras, drones, and other high-end creative equipment are available through the service."
  • Mashable Logo
    Excerpt from Mashable -- "Startups like Uber and Airbnb, which form the core of the new 'sharing economy,' can have a particularly positive effect on people with lower incomes, according to a new report. The study, from New York University professor Arun Sundararajan and research scientist Samuel Fraiberger, analyzed data from two years of transactions provided by Getaround, a peer-to-peer car rental startup."
  • international business times logo feature
    Excerpt from International Business Times -- "'It’s exactly the fact that these banks all collapse at the same time that led to the collapse in the economy,' Engle said. The stress tests grade banks individually, leading some to worry whether the Fed might be overlooking broader issues. The alternative test Engle and his colleagues have designed provides an example of what a more systemic approach might look like. Dubbed the V-Lab, the process uses publicly available metrics to gauge how individual banks, and their underlying equities, might react to overall shifts in the market."
  • voxeu logo feature
    Excerpt from Vox -- "Asia’s recovery following its financial crisis was more rapid and robust than Europe’s, and the decision by policymakers in the two regions to adopt very different fiscal strategies provides a leading explanation for why this was the case. Although the impact on growth and employment of Europe’s pivot to austerity could have been exacerbated by the absence of other policy levers such as exchange rate flexibility and monetary policy independence, the data seem to corroborate the wisdom of countercyclical fiscal policy."

    Prof. Scott Galloway on ISIS's Twitter presence

    March 5, 2015
    new york times logo feature
    Excerpt from The New York Times -- "'The thing that is scary about ISIS is that they have clearly taken content production to a level of quality beyond other terrorist groups,' [Galloway] said. 'The videos they have produced are the production quality of MTV.'"
  • new york times logo feature
    Excerpt from The New York Times -- "Professor Sylla suggested that investors, now twice burned by market plunges in 2000 and 2008, were far more cautious than in the late 1990s. 'The dot-com bubble was just 15, 16 years ago, so just about everyone 35 or older, an age when people begin to have money to invest, remembers it,' he said. 'These folks have learned some lessons about bubbles, fortunately. So current valuations, while high by most historical standards, are more reasonable than they were 15 years ago.'"
  • cnbc logo feature
    Excerpt from CNBC -- “So, I actually broke these companies down to old tech, middle aged tech, young tech and baby tech. And I think the old tech companies actually look like some of the better bargains in the market. If you are a value investor, old tech is where you might want to go.”

    Excerpt from Bloomberg -- "'Greece has already run out of money and lives with emergency compulsory borrowing from pension funds and from European agricultural support money in transit to farmers,' said Nicholas Economides, a professor at Stern School of Business, in New York. 'Unless there are new loans from Europe or alternatively the ECB allows Greek banks to buy more Greek debt, Greece will default at the end of March,' Economides said in an e-mail."
  • business insider logo feature
    Excerpt from Business Insider -- "Galloway says he believes 'pure play' retailers that focus on either digital or brick-and-mortar sales cannot survive. He thinks e-commerce companies will be forced to open stores or 'go out of business' and that retailers need to be excellent at digital or they will 'go out of business.'"
  • bloomberg logo new
    Excerpt from Bloomberg -- "'Spinoffs are accompanied by a fairly predictable pop in the parent company’s share price,' Marti Subrahmanyam, a senior professor at New York University’s Leonard Stern Business School who co-authored the study, said in a telephone interview. 'Yet there seems to be little focus on this area. Authorities need to adopt a more systematic approach and acknowledge that every type of announcement is fraught with the possibility of insider dealing.'"
