    Excerpt from The Daily Star -- "'The inspection of some factories that were outside the purview of Accord and Alliance are being carried out under the National Action Plan. It is necessary to discuss how they will carry on remediation,' said Sarah Labowitz, co-director of NY University Stern Centre for Business and Human Rights. 'I hope that real discussions will take place on the practical solutions to how finance comes to small and medium sized factories.'"
    Excerpt from The New York Times -- "'The demand is starting to dry up,' said David L. Yermack, a professor of finance at New York University’s Stern School of Business. 'I think a lot of the excitement may have bled out of investors."

    Excerpt from Bloomberg -- "The regulations that we have today for hotels, for taxis... they were built for an old sharing economy in which we hail yellow cabs, in which we call black car services, we stay at hotels... So now we've got the digital platforms. We've got someone who's sort of sitting in between the person who's providing you with the service and the person who's demanding the service. And so I think we should give that entity some of the responsibility that we used to call on the government for."

    Excerpt from The Atlantic -- "The fact these new jobs pay so little, and are often staffed through 'temporary' arrangements, means that any supposed economic 'gains' brought about by their arrival are precarious.'This [DCs] could create short-term jobs, but I see no sort of long-term or even medium-term benefit or clustering effect for the local economy out of this,' says Foudy."
  • bloomberg logo feature
    Excerpt from Bloomberg -- "I think it's a misunderstanding of the way the system works. It's a meritocratic system with almost imperial-like sort of bureaucracy guiding the economy through transitions as it becomes a market economy... Most banks are state-owned at some level. Historically, they have not been strictly market-oriented. They do the government's bidding when it's important... They are a different breed of animal."

    Excerpt from Roll Call -- "'We may thus need to figure out new ways of funding capital contributions to society,' Sundararajan said. 'In the long run, the sharing economy also calls into question the logic of some existing taxes like hotel taxes.'"
  • financial times logo feature
    Excerpt from Financial Times -- "Another worry, as pointed out by Stephen Cecchetti and Kermit Schoenholtz in their blog Money, Banking and Financial Markets, is that if much of the loss-absorbing debt is held by leveraged investors such as hedge funds then there is a risk of contagion across the financial system and back to banks."

    Excerpt from Financial News -- "China is the 'miracle economy' of today. It has much in common with the centralised, export-led economy of Japan before 1990. And it is vulnerable to similar sorts of asset bubbles that can devastate its economic momentum and progress."
  • straits times logo
    Excerpt from Straits Times -- "In 2015, China's economy will deliver strong growth, and its talented leaders will maintain their monopoly on power. And China's fate will become even more important for international politics and the entire global economy."
  • BusinessBecause
    Excerpt from BusinessBecause -- "NYU: Stern, based in New York, has invested in an MS in Business Analytics course which launched in May 2013. Roy Lee, assistant dean of global degree programs, says it has filled both cohorts of 60 with ease. 'We closed out the admissions cycle a month and half early, with a waiting list for the following year,' he adds... 'We are teaching the managers [and] executives who need to understand the language of analytics and how to leverage data to make strategic decisions,' says Roy."
    Excerpt from The New York Times -- "Arun Sundararajan, a professor at New York University’s Stern School of Business, says that services like Spare5 can be empowering to people who want more control over when and how they work, even if it’s for peanuts. But he says that can be taken too far. 'Spare time is a good thing to have,” he said. “You don’t want to spend every minute making money.'"
    Excerpt from The New York Times -- "'It was mostly a symbolic move,' said Richard Sylla, a professor of the history of financial markets and institutions at New York University. 'Which isn’t to say that it was crazy or unfounded. What the Swiss were really saying by considering the plan was that some of them were going to feel a whole lot better if they had tons of gold inside the bank.'"

    Prof. Arun Sundararajan discusses Uber's valuation

    Excerpt from The Washington Post -- "'Thinking of them as a company that transports people from one place to another is one part of the story,' says Sundararajan, pausing our phone call to get into an arriving Uber vehicle. 'But you wouldn't come up with a $40 billion valuation from just that. Their investors are betting on a behavioral change amount where a lot of people are willing to spend more than they do now to get things on demand.'"

    Excerpt from Psychology Today -- "Specifically, Adam Alter of the Stern School of Business at NYU and Hal Hershfield of the Anderson School of Management at UCLA conducted a series of studies to determine if approaching a new decade in age is associated with increased meaning-related appraisals and endeavors... In short, actually approaching a new decade in age or imagining approaching a new decade in age motivated a desire for meaning."

    Excerpt from The Economist -- "By using satellite images, old maps and population data, Mr Angel has run a ruler over some 3,600 metropolitan areas. He finds that, with few exceptions, they are less dense in wealthier countries. Paris is less than one-third as densely populated as Cairo and barely one-seventh as dense as Mumbai. Even rich cities that seem packed are sparsely populated compared with poorer ones. Tokyo is only one-fifth as densely populated as Dhaka, for example."

    entrepreneur logo feature
    Excerpt from Entrepreneur -- "When going head-to-head with a rival, motivation can easily become untethered from what's at stake, because 'beating that opponent carries a psychological value in and of itself independent of the size of the prize,' Kilduff says. And that can be dangerous: Laser-focusing in on one rival at the expense of the bigger picture leaves us vulnerable to 'other competitive threats that may be newly emerging.'"

    Excerpt from Bloomberg -- "The immigration issue... is an economic issue, frankly. We've got a shortage of skilled workers in this country. Even... putting aside the amnesty issue, we need more high-skilled numbers. The United States's key competitive advantage has been the fact that we're an open society and we take in skilled workers, and right now we have a shortage of skilled workers in this country. And immigration policy is a key to economic growth."

    Excerpt from Yahoo! Finance -- "We’re currently in the mid-late stretch of this boom, 'so next year we’ll see economic growth and easy money. This frothiness that we’ve seen in financial markets is likely to continue from equities to credit to housing,' says Roubini. He predicts an eventual crash, but not for at least a few years. He believes that valuations in some markets are already stretched and will continue to stretch until seeing a shakeout around two years down the line, in 2016."
  • bloomberg logo feature
    Excerpt from Bloomberg -- "I think what's really clear from these numbers... these are double-digit returns people are getting on their education. So the first thing to notice is an education pays... It's a challenge for all of us that the cost of a higher education continues to rise and we're all working to make sure that we deliver the maximum value for education. And I think the numbers suggest that we are doing that."
