    Excerpt from Poets & Quants -- "Williams’ philosophies are grounded in a successful career that includes designing over 100 products and holding 30 patents. Like any great teacher, Williams is simply looking to unlock and magnify the potential talents of his pupils. 'When students start believing that their fundamental purpose is to alter the status quo, rather than preserve it, their motivation and mindset starts to change,' he observes. 'They begin to see opportunities beyond what others have defined as limits.'"
  • bloomberg view logo
    Excerpt from Bloomberg View -- "Graduate student German Gutierrez and finance professor Thomas Philippon of New York University come to a similar place in their new paper, 'Investment-Less Growth: An Empirical Investigation.' They find a marked decline in corporate capital investment relative to profits and valuation, starting around the year 2000, and a big increase in payouts to shareholders (dividends and buybacks, although the increase has mostly been in buybacks)."
  • atlantic logo feature
    Excerpt from The Atlantic -- "The researchers, Stephen Brown, Yan Lu, Sugata Ray, and Melvyn Teo, began with a hypothesis about a psychological trait called “sensation seeking.” As they write, the trait is 'defined by the seeking of varied, novel, complex, and intense sensations and experiences, and the willingness to take physical, social, legal, and financial risks for the sake of such experience.' Major sensation seekers, in other words, are the sort of people who probably make for good Hollywood protagonists, and they are more likely to step outside the law. Among other correlates established by earlier research, people with the trait are less careful with spending and engage in risky driving. So when their disposable incomes start to swell, the researchers reasoned, they are more likely to stop by a Ferrari showroom than a Subaru lot."

    Excerpt from the Financial Times -- "Limiting work used to be simple: it was just a matter of imposing shorter shifts. The seamless, addictive nature of digital communication makes it harder. But companies have a stake in realising 'how damaging social media and tech addiction can be', as Adam Alter, author of Irresistible, a forthcoming book on digital addiction, argues."

    Excerpt from WalletHub -- "The question, therefore, is not only whether the diamond prices will continue to drop based on factors that determine the global economy, but also whether diamonds can still capture the imagination of consumers and whether these consumers are willing to pay premium prices for diamond jewelry."

    Excerpt from Reuters -- "'(It's) a mistake by Indonesia, which needs JPMorgan's support and advice more than the bank needs Indonesia,' Smith said. 'No effort by governments unhappy with research calls to "discipline" the banks have been successful, though efforts are made from time to time to satisfy local political expectations.'"
  • MEL logo 192 x 144
    Excerpt from MEL -- "'Generational tensions clearly foster more discrimination, and vice versa,' North adds. 'The main difference the perception of generational tension appears to be greater than at any point in recent memory. Age discrimination charges have steadily risen as older adults remain in the workforce longer than ever. On the younger side, unemployment rates are uncomfortably high. It’s created a unique climate of age discrimination and generational tension that clearly needs to be resolved.'"

    Excerpt from Bloomberg -- "Unfortunately, if the US gives up on its multilateralist, internationalist approach, if it's going to think about its own strict national interest, that's going to create a variety of tensions."

    Excerpt from Architects Newspaper -- "Then there was the hugely anticipated release of the Atlas of Urban Expansion, a collaboration among New York University, UN-Habitat, and the Lincoln Institute of Land Policy. After years of analyzing satellite data, Professor Shlomo Angel and his team revealed conclusive proof that the footprints of cities are expanding faster than their populations."

    Excerpt from Quartz -- "What [American workers] need, says Robert Salomon, a professor at New York University’s business school, is a social safety net, and new skills to qualify for the high-tech positions American companies are trying to fill these days.

    Excerpt from Forbes -- "Grand Street Dental exemplifies a thorough and classic approach to marketing, design, and innovation, normally utilized by large companies. What I found so extraordinary and more importantly, what patients will be impressed with and want to spread virally, is the unusual level of patient experience empathy at every point that a brand impression can be made."

    Excerpt from Cosmopolitan -- "You're less likely to break a big bill, a study in the Journal of Consumer Research found."
  • harvard business review logo feature
    Excerpt from the Harvard Business Review -- "Our analysis showed that the less successful retailers had continued to chase growth by opening new stores far past the point of diminishing returns. By contrast, the successful retailers had drastically curtailed expansion and instead relied on operational improvements at their existing stores to drive additional sales. This allowed them to increase revenues faster than expenses, which had a powerful positive impact on earnings."
     
  • Ethical Systems Logo 192 x 144
    Excerpt from Ethical Systems -- "Stern, with its location in the world’s financial center, and its award-winning faculty and students who are focused on finance, can play a unique role in addressing the structural problems of shareholder capitalism and the Center for Sustainable Business can assist the transition to a capitalism better suited to the needs of the 21st century. The moment is right because a growing number of business leaders such as Paul Polman at Unilever, John Mackey at Whole Foods and Larry Fink at BlackRock are questioning the benefits of short-termism and are turning to their broader purpose in society. These business leaders need research, networks and employees who can help them on this journey and CSB can be a key partner."

  • scientific american logo feature
    Excerpt from Scientific American -- "Psychologists have known for some time, thanks to work led by Nira Liberman from Tel Aviv University and Yaacov Trope from New York University, that goals look different in the distant versus near future. Three months ago, when you booked your holiday travel, you probably had some abstract notions of 'family togetherness,' 'relaxation,' or 'adventure.' The night before you left, however, you probably had some more immediate concerns in mind. Concerns like, 'How is all this stuff going to fit in the suitcase?' and 'Will I be able to get an Uber driver at 4:45 AM?'"

    Excerpt from The Christian Science Monitor -- "That’s probably an anomaly – globalization isn’t going into reverse, says Pankaj Ghemawat, who directs the Center for the Globalization of Education and Management at New York University. But 'globalization is still in the doldrums,' says Mr. Ghemawat via email. 'It is clearly not advancing like it was before the financial crisis, but it has not (at least not yet) collapsed.'"

    Excerpt from CBC News -- "Salomon said while no one knows what Trump will do, his best guess is that NAFTA will be tweaked, not trashed. 'If he wants to rip it up, Canada will bear the consequences as well. But I hope that Trump sees the broader value of NAFTA and works to renegotiate elements of it, rather than rip it up entirely.'"

    Excerpt from the Associated Press -- "Do you remember what Pat Nixon or Laura Bush wore? She has the ability to hold the interest of the consumer in a way that almost no one else does. I've looked far and wide — Kate Middleton, Carla Bruni. Nobody begins to approach Mrs. Obama on this."
