    Excerpt from International Business Times --  "'I think if you're comparing Apple's service to Spotify’s, for example, there's a lot of similarity,' Craig continued. 'For that reason, given Apple's advantages, it's going to be an uphill battle for Spotify.'"

    Excerpt from The New York Times -- "Mr. Sundararajan of N.Y.U. said he thought that at the heart of debate over regulating the sharing economy was the fact that it had blurred the lines between personal and professional realms, commercializing some tasks historically performed for friends. 'We’ve always given people rides to the airport,” he said. “We’ve lent our apartments to friends and cooked meals for them.'"

    Excerpt from Daily Mail -- "Experts say that the 'planning fallacy' - a phenomenon in which predictions about how much time is needed to complete a task are incorrectly optimistic - is one of the most difficult changes to make. Justin Kruger, a social psychologist and professor of marketing at New York University’s Stern School of Business told The Wall Street Journal’s Sumathi Reddy that despite there being lots of punishments for being late, people still find it difficult to change their habits."

    Excerpt from Forbes -- "For JPMorgan and Goldman the drop off has been manageable, but the rest of the field has been forced to pitch securities businesses to investors as a loss leader. At current activity levels both JPMorgan and Goldman 'can operate in a viable business model in which their return on equity is equal or greater than their cost on equity capital. That is not true for anybody else,' says Roy C. Smith, a professor at New York University’s Stern School of Business and former Goldman Sachs limited partner."

    Excerpt from OZY -- "Vasant Dhar, a professor at NYU Stern Business School who specializes in data and cloud technologies, says it’s likely to be three or four years before clear winners emerge in these worlds: 'There’s a huge opportunity, but also huge amounts of uncertainty.'"

    Excerpt from Bloomberg -- "'Rate movement is almost never going to happen in a vacuum,” Damodaran said by phone. 'If rates go up because the economy is going stronger and you ask me what the effect on stocks will be -- it depends. It depends on how much the economy getting stronger pushes up earnings.'"
  • Real Time with Bill Maher logo
    Excerpt from Real Time with Bill Maher -- "I'd say, long-term, China's the biggest threat because it's the only country with a global strategy. They're spending over a trillion dollars. They're trying to align countries towards themselves [which] ultimately undermines the dollar, and that's going to affect all of us. But in the near-term, it's the single most powerful individual in the world, Vladimir Putin, who is in decline and very unhappy and wants to punish us. ... We're punishing him and ... he wants the Americans to understand that that's not costless for us."

    Excerpt from NPR -- "'I'm not sure this explains hierarchies,' Blader said. 'This does not mean that the masses are tolerant of unfairness or slow to perceive it, just that there's an amplification of the deed among the powerful.'"
  • huffington post logo feature
    Excerpt from The Huffington Post -- "Congress must not give away its prerogatives to pressure groups. Congress must reject 'fast track.' Our elected representatives should be willing to, and empowered to, change new proposed trade arrangements before they go into effect."

    Excerpt from Bloomberg -- "In the world of ecommerce, I believe that pure-play ecommerce has no future, that almost every pure-play ecommerce is either going to open stores or go out of business. ... Effectively, the consumer always gets what she wants. Effectively, there's three doors here. There's a great ecommerce site, that just has an ecommerce offering. There's a great retail concept with just bricks and mortar and maybe a weak ecommerce site, and then there's door number three: a Sephora, a Williams-Sonoma or Macy's that have great stores, great ecommerce and use digital as the connective tissue... and the consumer wants door number three. I think the future looks more like Macy's and Williams-Sonoma than it looks like Amazon or Net-a-Porter or Gilt."

    Excerpt from Bloomberg -- "'The delay in the payment to the IMF is an escalation of the confrontation,' Nicholas Economides, an economics professor at New York University’s Stern School of Business. 'It increases the risk of bankruptcy and Grexit.'"
  • wall street journal logo feature
    Excerpt from The Wall Street Journal -- "The political scientist and global risk strategist Ian Bremmer, a foreign-affairs columnist at Time, has written a book asking Americans themselves to decide what our policy should be, and offering what he sees as three central options. 'America,' he writes, 'will remain the world’s only superpower for the foreseeable future. But what sort of superpower should it be? What role should America play in the world? What role do you want America to play?'"

    Excerpt from Yahoo! Finance -- "'When companies distract people with sideshows and entertainment, it’s pretty clear that they’re trying to draw attention from some of their labor practices,' [Yermack] said."

    Excerpt from Forbes -- "Dominique Ansel is undoubtedly the most celebrated and innovative pastry chef in the Western Hemisphere and for good reason. Aside from creating the Cronut phenomenon, he has innovated in so many other ways. He combines magic, entertainment, craft, nostalgia, analogies, complexity, surprise, shapes, interesting presentations, contrasting textures and temperatures, and wow factor into his creations."
  • time magazine logo feature
    Excerpt from TIME -- "China continuing to grow economically and challenging the American economic system does automatically mean less American influence. And the question is, how is the US going to respond to that? One way to respond to it is by saying, you know what, we can't do global anymore. We'd like to do a global trade agreement, but we can't. We have to support coalitions of the willing. So the more attractive the United States looks as a market, the more over time, China is likely to reform its own economic systems to challenge the US less even as it continues to grow."

    Excerpt from Bloomberg -- "'The odds are much, much lower for a bank CEO becoming a billionaire than a guy going to a hedge fund or private equity,' said Roy Smith, a professor at New York University Stern School of Business and a former Goldman Sachs Group Inc. partner who started on Wall Street in 1966. 'The real lucre in this business has always been on the transactional side. The CEOs of Wall Street have to deal with litigation, regulation and the relatively short tenures you have at the top of the pile.'"

    Excerpt from Quartz -- "'The announcement of charges is an important first step toward accountability,' Labowitz told Quartz. 'But there is still a long way to go before anyone is brought to justice.'"

    Excerpt from Luxury Daily -- "'Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pierpaolo Piccioli are a modern version of what used to be the lone creative genius, which Valentino, the man, and other great couturiers used to be,' said Thomaï Serdari, Ph.D., founder of PIQLuxury and adjunct professor of luxury marketing at New York University, New York. 'Today, we see a much more collaborative approach to creativity even in the great famed houses of high fashion.'"

    Excerpt from The Atlantic -- "The [visual] comes courtesy of NYU urban scholars Solly Angel and Patrick Lamson-Hall. It tracks neighborhood population densities on the island from 1800 to 2010 using historical maps, aerial photographs, and census ward statistics. The basic narrative sees density cluster first in Lower Manhattan, then slowly reach northward and spread out more evenly, then generally subside closer to modern times—waves of growth that, spliced back to back, make the city seem like it’s breathing."
  • bloomberg logo new
    Excerpt from Bloomberg -- "Companies that loaded up on debt during the credit boom of the early-to-mid-2000s were more likely to fire workers and shut down stores once the 2007-2009 recession hit than were companies that hadn’t levered up, according to a National Bureau of Economic Research working paper issued in April. That’s because they couldn’t raise additional funds. The weakened balance sheets among the more highly levered firms were 'instrumental in the propagation of shocks' during the crisis, Xavier Giroud and Holger Mueller wrote in the report."
  • cnbc logo feature
    Excerpt from CNBC -- "What would a good deal contain? Besides the fiscal issues, a good deal should emphasize the microeconomic reforms. It should reduce the huge and inefficient state sector that weighs down on the private sector and the taxpayers. Pensions should become proportional to contributions. The procurement mechanisms of the state should become competitive so that lower prices are achieved and corruption is reduced. Greece should proceed with the privatization of trains, airports, ports, and the energy sector. The "closed sectors" (such as pharmacies) should be opened to competition. The labor market should be liberalized. The business taxes and bureaucratic procedures should be reduced to attract new investment."
  • new york times logo feature
    Excerpt from The New York Times -- "'Who are brands obsessed with? High-income teens and people in their 20s,' said Scott Galloway, a New York University marketing professor and chairman of L2, a research firm that studies how consumer brands use social media. 'Those people are leaving Facebook. Where are they going? Instagram. Facebook has shored up its rear flank with this important cohort with Instagram.'"

    Excerpt from Al Jazeera -- "More important, in the last 20 years the Council of Europe has dramatically expanded to include more than two dozen members from the former Soviet bloc and elsewhere. Many of these relatively new democracies still struggle to build national systems that can reliably protect their people. It is also for the people in these places that the United Kingdom needs to keep its seat at the table and be a leader, not a outlier, and work to strengthen the protection of fundamental human rights throughout Europe. Cameron may wish to exert his nationalist bona fides after his electoral victory, but jettisoning Britain’s European human rights commitments isn’t a productive way to do so."

    Excerpt from The Real Deal -- "Investors have poured more than $3.7 billion into several dozen projects around New York City via the EB-5 program since 2009. And while the industry lacks a comprehensive database, The Real Deal zeroed in on some of the city’s largest and most notable projects to date, using data culled by researchers at New York University and referenced in a report by Professor Jeanne Calderon and attorney Gary Friedland."
  • macleans logo
    Excerpt from Macleans -- "'People are very impressionable,” says Thomaï Serdari, an adjunct associate professor at New York University’s Stern School of Business. 'Everyone is adding the adjective of luxury. You see this all the time with condos. They’re advertised as luxury, but you walk in and the walls are so cheap.'"
