    Excerpt from CBC Radio -- "It really comes down to the four entities of the marketing environment. One is the consumer and their shifting tastes and preferences towards healthier products. The other is the company and what makes sense for their marketing and production efficiencies. What the company's competitors are doing is something that is always on their radar. They don't want the competition to move too far ahead or beyond them. And then, finally, there's the public voice, or community, and the educational initiatives, efforts, and governmental policies and initiatives that have worked to educate the consumer on the importance of proper nutrition for adults and children."

    Excerpt from The BRICS Post -- "Mr. Modi has political capital to spend in India, and he ought to use some of it to winnow government subsidies, reduce protection of certain economic sectors, and to do all he can to increase basic competition in goods and services. Infrastructure and education are important too, but these take a long time to improve. The most immediate need is to get the growth rate back to a 9-10 per cent level."

    Excerpt from NHK -- "It is possible that only those people that have bad credit who cannot get loans from banks are the ones who borrow from these platforms. And so, if I'm the lender, my risk is a high default rate."

    Excerpt from Business Insider -- "...Galloway’s basic premise is this: Everyone thinks the 'digital age' is a rising tide that will lift all boats. But really, it’s a shift in tides that favors a few super yachts and will leave everyone else stuck in the sand or worse. With this perspective, he examines the players in three arenas: Social media, retail, and the world economy."

    Excerpt from New York Observer -- "Manhattan is home to some of the world’s most iconic skyscrapers. But despite its abundance of upward real-estate, a map created by Shlomo Angel shows the city actually has a lower population density as of 2010 versus 1910. Mr. Angel’s map comes from his book Planet of Cities, part of an upcoming New York Public Library presentation by the NYU Stern Urbanization Project and the NYU Marron Institute for Urban Management."

    Excerpt from Forbes -- "Apple has become the ultimate symbol of luxury. And as the luxury sector has been the most robust part of the retail industry, particularly amid the nation’s vanishing middle class, the darling of the tech world is poised for explosion growth — particularly as it tip toes into upscale fashion accessories with its new smart watch, Scott Galloway, founder and chairman of L2 and clinical professor of marketing at NYU Stern, said during the conference. More than Cartier or Hermes, 'Apple is becoming the new indicator of wealth in our society,” said Galloway, who called Apple the hands-down winner today in the digital age."

    Excerpt from Bloomberg View -- "Today's chart comes from a very interesting article on stock buybacks from Aswath Damodaran, a professor at New York University. He writes: This has been a big year for stock buybacks, continuing a return to a trend that started more than two decades ago and was broken only briefly by the crisis in 2008."

    Excerpt from Reuters -- "'What we don’t know, or we feel like it varies, is whether the benefit comes from working longer hours, or not being able to turn off, working evenings and weekends, or from something else,' [Wiesenfeld] told Reuters Health. 'It could be there’s higher wellbeing, there could be creativity benefits too,' she said. Working parents have lower stress levels when they have the option to work remotely, she noted."

    Excerpt from IT Business Edge -- "Panos Ipeirotis describes a similar, but much more complicated approach, in 'Crowdsourcing: Achieving Data Quality with Imperfect Humans,' which is available on YouTube. Ipeirotis holds a Ph.D. in computer science from Columbia and is now an associate professor and George A. Kellner Faculty Fellow for the Department of Information, Operations, and Management Sciences at Leonard N. Stern School of Business at New York University."

    Prof. Jonathan Haidt's research on awe is featured

    September 22, 2014
    huffington post logo feature
    Excerpt from The Huffington Post -- "Though psychologists have studied virtually every human emotion, they have only recently begun to pay attention to the complicated and varied emotion of awe. In a foundational 2003 paper, 'Approaching Awe, A Moral, Spiritual And Aesthetic Emotion,' psychologists Dacher Keltner of UC Berkeley and Jonathan Haidt of New York University outlined how exactly awe works and what effect it has on us. Awe consists of two qualities, Keltner and Haidt say: perceived vastness (something we think to be greater than ourselves), and accommodation, a need to assimilate the experience of vastness into one's current mental structure."
  • quartz logo
    Excerpt from Quartz -- "Managers tend to think that using a flexible schedule to be more productive is good—a sign of commitment to the organization—according to a study (pdf) from Lisa Leslie at the University of Minnesota. But when employees seek such schedules to accommodate aspects of their personal life, they see it as a sign of low commitment and dedication."
  • business insider logo feature
    Excerpt from Business Insider -- "One Chinese supplier that works with a range of European and American buyers described how Uniqlo provided him with 18-month forecasts of order volume. If the company deviated by more than a certain percentage, Uniqlo would apologise and offer to compensate him for the lost production. Other buyers, in contrast, would simply cancel orders or reduce volumes with neither an apology nor the offer of compensation. The supplier said he never accepted monetary compensation when Uniqlo deviated from its order projections. The respect the company showed him and the long-term nature of the relationship were worth more than the money."

    Excerpt from CNBC -- "In principle, a Scotland operating independently over time could kind of get it right. It's a small country. It could function effectively, like Sweden, but there's an enormous transition. First of all, you have a country that has 50% of the people, plus or minus, who think it's a bad idea and 50% who think it's a good idea, so this is a fairly badly divided country."

    Excerpt from Montreal Gazette -- "'At the very least, the rule needs to be improved,' said Rosa Abrantes-Metz, an economist who investigates manipulations and cheating, when told of the section of Quebec’s Act Respecting Contracting by Public Bodies that allows provincial departments and agencies, hospitals, universities, school boards and other public institutions to exempt themselves from holding a public call for tenders when they award contracts over $100,000."

    Excerpt from Business News Daily -- "Business leaders who consider their audience's perspective and who are conditioned to see the world from someone else's point of view produce the best outcomes, according to a study published recently in the journal Social Psychological and Personality Science."
  • pacific standard magazine logo
    Excerpt from Pacific Standard Magazine -- "Imagine you’re working your way through a list of chores—you might have to dust some bookshelves, vacuum the rugs, and sweep the floors. Probably you’ll check off one group—one category—of chores at a time. If you dust one shelf, vacuum part of a rug, and sweep a bit over there, you’re still left with more dusting, more vacuuming, and more sweeping, making your to-do list feel interminable... That intuition turns out to be correct, according to Anuj Shah and Adam Alter. In a series of seven experiments, they show that the average person will try to tick off categories of unpleasant tasks before moving on to the next. They’ll do the opposite for more enjoyable things. That way, there are more categories left to sample from—even if the number of things in those categories is the same, that makes it feel like the good times last a little longer."

    Excerpt from CCTV -- "China's ecosystem, regulation, and government favors local players, so to seriously expand into the Chinese market, you need a big brother and basically by taking money from Alibaba, you get a big brother on the ground in China."
  • wall street journal logo feature
    Excerpt from The Wall Street Journal -- "Policy makers and the public may wish for the comfort of certainty in their climate science. But I fear that rigidly promulgating the idea that climate science is 'settled' (or is a 'hoax') demeans and chills the scientific enterprise, retarding its progress in these important matters. Uncertainty is a prime mover and motivator of science and must be faced head-on. It should not be confined to hushed sidebar conversations at academic conferences."
  • project syndicate logo feature
    Excerpt from Project Syndicate -- "The EU’s cohesion strategy is admirable and smart. Whereas such investment in the past was heavily tilted toward physical infrastructure – particularly transport – the agenda has shifted to a more balanced set of targets, including human capital, employment, the economy’s knowledge and technology base, information technology, low-carbon growth, and governance. That said, one can ask what the economic and social returns on these investments will be."

    Excerpt from Bloomberg -- "While buying old mortgages may not seem in line with Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac’s mission of fueling new lending, it can help encourage banks to retain loans and then to find new ones, according to Lawrence White, a professor at New York University’s Leonard N. Stern School of Business. 'Providing liquidity today, tomorrow, or five years from now is all part of the mission,' said White, co-author of 'Guaranteed to Fail: Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac, and the Debacle of Mortgage Finance,' a 2011 book on their pre-crisis business."

    Prof. Richard Sylla on Yahoo's stake in Alibaba

    September 18, 2014
    bloomberg logo feature
    Except from Bloomberg -- "This kind of tie-up between larger companies isn’t typical for U.S. investors, said Richard Sylla, a professor of economics and financial history at New York University’s Stern School of Business. Berkshire Hathaway Inc. and mutual funds tend to be more ideal investment vehicles, he said. 'It’s a bit more unusual in the U.S. for a company like Yahoo to have a big stock position in another firm without sort of taking it over,' he said. 'Usually, one firm buys another and they merge or something like that -- but in this particular case Yahoo was acting a little bit more like a partner or a venture capital firm.'"

    Excerpt from USA Today -- "There’s an early warning system all investors need to know about — the Altman Z-Score — that’s is calling out six companies for being in a tough spot. The Z-Score — a financial indicator that predicts when companies are careening toward serious financial distress — is commonly used by investment professionals. And there’s no reason why individuals can’t use it, too."
