    Excerpt from Bloomberg -- "It looks like there are going to be laws passed in Greece, the agreement laws... But then the laws have to be implemented, and that will happen sometime in the fall and that will be problematic. Additionally, there is a very important political wrinkle in this problem that the ruling coalition government does not have enough votes to pass these laws because some of their own deputies are going to vote against them, so these laws are going to pass with the opposition votes, which puts the government in a very precarious position. And it makes very likely that in early fall, this government will look for elections... as a way out of its problems."

    Excerpt from PaRR -- "White noted that Libor is a collaboratively determined interest rate — a price, but it is an interest rate. However, according to Judge Buchwald, this interest rate is separate from the marketplace where people were buying and selling securities or mortgages or other products, and thus there was no collusion in those markets, he said. Buchwald 'didn’t see the collaborative effort in setting the Libor interest rate as a market antitrust issue,” White said. 'My personal belief is she is wrong and eventually is going to get overturned, either by the Second Circuit or the Supreme Court,' he added."

    Excerpt from CNBC -- "The big jumps have been in the global classes, faculty-led classes that are taking our students to Milan, to China, to other places so that students can get a real hands-on experience in the country, see the culture, see the historical significance and perspectives of those countries and bring those back into companies that are increasingly multi-national in scope."

    Excerpt from MarketWatch -- "...we have no choice but to conclude that we’re not in another bubble like it [the Internet bubble]. the conclusion I reached upon grading the current market according to five dimensions of investor sentiment that were devised by the authors of perhaps the leading academic study of stock market bubbles. Those authors are finance professors Jeffrey Wurgler of New York University’s Stern School of Business and Malcolm Baker of Harvard Business School."

    Excerpt from The Atlantic -- "Universities themselves should try to raise consciousness about the need to balance freedom of speech with the need to make all students feel welcome. Talking openly about such conflicting but important values is just the sort of challenging exercise that any diverse but tolerant community must learn to do. Restrictive speech codes should be abandoned."

    Excerpt from Los Angeles Times -- "Tom Meyvis, a professor of marketing at New York University's Stern School of Business, said removing gender labels from toys gives more power to the consumer, a trend in marketing. 'To some extent, you give more control to the customer,' he said. 'So customers can decide for themselves what is the ideal product for their son or daughter, rather than being told this is the category your child falls into.'"

    Excerpt from Bloomberg -- "During the housing bubble, the widespread practice of so-called ratings shopping fueled a 'race to the bottom' among credit graders as they sought to win business, helping to fuel the later financial crisis...'We don’t know until we know if this is going to be a problem,' said Larry White, an economics professor at New York University’s Stern School of Business. 'But surely they don’t want to be wrong a second time.'"

  • financial times logo feature
    Excerpt from Financial Times -- "Spotting risk is difficult, and it is tempting to let others do the hard work. But rating agencies follow an ad hoc and slow-moving approach. Market signals, such as the interest rates payable on sovereign bonds, are noisy and volatile. It takes systematic, data-driven analysis to understand the dangers hidden in a shifting global economic scene."

    Excerpt from The Globe and Mail -- "The indirect sourcing model is not unique to Bangladesh and has allowed explosive growth in the global apparel industry. But dependence on subcontracting firms outside the system of monitoring and inspection operated by Western brands leaves a significant part of the work force vulnerable to poor conditions."

    Excerpt from Australian Financial Review -- "But retail investors [in Australia] can [invest in hedge funds]. You have to be prepared to do the operational due diligence, to know that in a liquidity crisis hedge funds will lose money and to invest in a diversified portfolio. If you can't meet those criteria you shouldn't be investing in hedge funds."

    Excerpt from AFP -- "Arun Sundararajan, who heads New York University's Social Cities Initiative, said policymakers should seek to 'decouple' traditional benefits from the workplace to help gig workers. 'What they are looking for is not to be a full-time employee,' Sundararajan told AFP."

    Excerpt from Poets & Quants -- "Gallogly, assistant dean of MBA admissions at the New York University’s Stern School of Business, estimates he’s read more than 50,000 application essays during his dozen years at the school. While he and his colleagues assess specific attributes and deficiencies related to GMAT scores, undergraduate GPAs, work experience, communication skills, and fit with Stern, ultimately their evaluation falls under a framework they call 'the three Cs': how well applicants would do in the classroom; how successful they would be in their careers; and what kind of character they have."

    Excerpt from New York German Press -- "What's critical is that in the United States right now, a lot of the social safety net, a lot of the benefits ranging from steady salary and paid vacations to insurance of different kinds, health benefits... all of that is tied, and much better, if you are a full-time employee. What's happening as more and more work becomes flexible is that these providers don't have access to benefits that full-time employees do. ... We shouldn't force our workforce into a situation where they have to choose between flexibility and benefits. I think we need new structures where we can get both."

    Excerpt from San Francisco Chronicle -- "'Much as Uber and Airbnb have fought regulatory battles in cities around the world, and in the process laid the groundwork for new regulatory systems that accommodate their platforms, this lawsuit could lay the foundation for a better way of providing benefits to gig workers and part-time contractors,' Sundararajan said."

    Excerpt from Racked -- "Thomai Serdari, a luxury marketing professor at NYU, says Signet's play for the male consumer is also apparent in where and when its ads are placed: the company spends millions to air commercials during sporting events.'Their branding goes hand-in-hand with how the average American consumer equates relationship milestones with jewelry,' she says. 'Signet tries to stay on top of the mind of the consumer who will watch a football game, see an ad on TV, and equate that brand with the next gift he needs to buy his wife.'"
  • politifact logo feature
    Excerpt from PolitiFact -- "In fact, if you remove Hoover from the GOP column, the average monthly return for Republicans improves significantly, from a 0.38 percent average monthly return to a 0.61 percent monthly return. The Hoover-free GOP number is within striking distance of the Democratic mark of 0.73 percent, said Lawrence J. White, a professor at New York University’s Stern School of Business. White doesn’t argue that it’s fairest to remove Hoover from the GOP’s calculation. Rather, he said, it’s a reminder that relatively small changes due at least in part to unlucky timing can have big effects on the end result."

    Excerpt from TIME -- "Walls don’t deter migrants, who simply take longer, harsher routes. Walls are incredibly costly to build and maintain. They can disrupt trade and hurt a country’s reputation. Nor will walls solve terrorism. Tunisia is building a wall to separate itself from chaotic Libya, but it will not stop the more than 3,000 Tunisians who have reportedly traveled to fight in Syria from coming home. Rather than building walls, politicians need to address root causes. In Europe, that means financing local development across the Mediterranean to reduce migrants’ incentive to leave their home countries."
  • Linkedin logo
    Excerpt from LinkedIn -- "Cold calling almost never works, unless you’re unbelievably lucky. I wasn’t, and you probably won’t be either. A mentor can introduce you to the right people and tell you why exactly you need to know that person. The mentor can tell you who is worth trusting and who isn’t. Knowing who to trust requires experience, which you don’t have yet. He/she can also help you understand where you need connections to succeed and where you’re better off going it alone. You won’t believe how much time and effort that will save you."
  • atlantic logo feature
    Excerpt from The Atlantic -- "Executive compensation hasn’t changed much after disclosure requirements, 'say-on-pay' rules that put up CEO pay to nonbinding shareholder votes, or even the financial crisis. What might work instead? Yermack, the NYU professor, has one big-picture idea. 'I think the solution lies in making the median worker more productive through better education and training, an area where the U.S. has not been particularly successful,' he says. 'We are very good as a country at educating high-skilled workers for elite jobs, but we do not do nearly as well as other countries in educating people in the broad middle of the labor market.'"
  • wall street journal logo feature
    Excerpt from The Wall Street Journal -- "NYU Stern allows some first-years to begin M.B.A. coursework in July, as a way for students to lighten their course loads for the academic year. While the majority of the school’s Summer Start students are selected by program administrators for their leadership potential or because they might benefit from an early start, NYU holds a few spots for additional students who wish to opt in, said Isser Gallogly, assistant dean of M.B.A. admissions. He said the school has seen more requests for those spots, which carry an additional fee of around $2,500, in recent years. The 60 to 65 summer students 'get to know each other quite well,' and form close ties, Mr. Gallogly said. Come fall, administrators spread them among the six cohort blocks of the M.B.A. class, where they act as 'connectors,' he said."

    Excerpt from Business Insider -- "In a New York University study, researchers found that people with easier-to-pronounce names often have higher-status positions at work. One of the psychologists, Adam Alter, explains to Wired, 'When we can process a piece of information more easily, when it's easier to comprehend, we come to like it more.' In a further study, Alter also found that companies with simpler names and ticker symbols tended to perform better in the stock market."
  • Next City logo
    Excerpt from NextCity -- "'The critical thing in the next decade or two is that we structure labor law in a way that allows a wider variety of work arrangements,' Sundararajan adds. 'The same protections, the hard-won protections of full-time employment should be extended to other categories of work so that we don’t bias people towards one particular form.'"
  • foreign policy logo feature
    Excerpt from Foreign Policy -- "Few people who give international markets even a cursory glance can have missed the recent meltdown in China’s stock market. Between June 12 and July 8, the Shanghai and Shenzhen indices were down 32 percent and 40 percent, respectively, generating headlines around the world. After the authorities took dramatic steps to halt the plunge, the markets stabilized, but then dropped a record 8.5 percent last Monday. It is not too early to start extracting some lessons from this meltdown — lessons that could serve China well going forward. If the country is still committed to making the stock market one of the important components of its new, more market-based capital allocation model, then the recent collapse, while painful, could yet prove extremely useful."
