    Excerpt from CNBC -- "We've had decreases in some crucial prices. That helps. But [low inflation] is a mystery. Labor costs are remaining low even though labor markets are in pretty good shape. 4.4% unemployment, that's back where we were in 2007. We've been below 5% unemployment now for over a year, and yet, labor costs are not going up, which would be an underlying cause for higher inflation. The Fed doesn't really understand it. Most academics don't understand why labor costs, why wages, aren't going up more rapidly."

    Excerpt from The New York Times -- "'While the digital disruption is destroying the traditional retail business model,' Dr. Sundararajan said, 'the Amazon model that replaces it will continue to live in the physical world and require human labor for the foreseeable future.'"

    Excerpt from The Source -- “Governments can help protect water sources by charging corporate users the real cost of water and use the proceeds to protect the water source; provide communities with funds to protect the forests in their watersheds; and build green infrastructure to reduce stormwater runoff into waterways. Charging for water at realistic rates will likely encourage businesses to install water conservation technologies (in order to reduce their fees), especially if government also provides subsidies for those technologies."
  • inc logo feature
    Excerpt from Inc. -- "Ari Ginsberg, a professor of entrepreneurship at New York University's Stern School of Management, characterizes the new proposals as encouraging. In particular, he cites a section of the outline devoted to small and medium-sized enterprises, which calls for the establishment of a special committee 'to ensure that the needs of SMEs are considered' in the broader agreement. 'The signals are much more positive than before for small businesses,' Ginsberg says."
  • dnainfo logo feature
    Excerpt from DNAinfo -- "They modeled what happens to Manhattan’s market with an influx of such investors, finding negative consequences for the welfare of the city when they leave their properties vacant. It forces locals farther out, resulting in longer commutes, which costs time and money, Van Nieuwerburgh said. 'When buying desirable properties in Manhattan, they’re pushing someone else out,' he added."
  • wallethub logo
    Excerpt from WalletHub -- "A card can also be cool because of the issuer/branding. There is a new Marvel credit card. There is a Disney Visa card. There is a Mercedes Benz credit card through American Express.; the list is pretty endless. The key thing about cool is that it depends on the individual's social circle. Airline cards used to be cool, but now they have proliferated."

    Excerpt from The Globe and Mail -- "'I'm asking consumers to not hold back on data but share it. When consumers do that, however, companies must act responsibly,' Mr. Ghose says."
  • CPA Journal logo 192 x 144
    Excerpt from The CPA Journal -- "'There’s a very high correlation between a strong ESG performance and strong operational performance, strong stock performance and lower cost of capital,' Whelan claimed, citing a study by the University of Oxford and Arabesque. Examining that phenomenon at the Center for Sustainable Business, she has found that sustainability can drive innovation, risk reduction, operational efficiency, and employee recruitment and engagement. She noted that while much of this is financially intangible, its effects can be felt on the company’s bottom line."

    Excerpt from Forbes -- "The overall take-away from the Google Zoo study is that Virtual Reality has the potential to relay much more powerful advertising and journalistic messages than traditional storytelling’s text, still images, and traditional video."
  • Travel and Leisure logo 192 x 144
    Excerpt from Travel + Leisure -- "'Consumers do not just focus on individual experiences. Instead, they categorize and manage experiences... For positive experiences, consumers are reluctant to eliminate categories, while the opposite is true for negative experiences because eliminating categories makes it feel like more of the experience has passed,' write authors Anuj K. Shah (University of Chicago Booth School of Business) and Adam L. Alter (New York University)."
  • CNBC logo feat
    Excerpt from CNBC -- "Amazon, right now, I would argue, is the most dominant company in the world and maybe the most dominant company, at this point, that we've ever seen. If you look at the Venn overlap of who they're competing against -- Apple, Facebook, Microsoft -- they're winning wherever they're competing against any of the big tech titans. So this company feels like it has more momentum than any other company I register."
  • CNBC logo feat
    Excerpt from CNBC -- "Maria Patterson, an assistant clinical professor at NYU's Stern School of Business, considers a political approach an important part of growing a business. 'It's absolutely critical for businesses to make a considered decision of what are our values,' she said. 'Once you determine what your values are in business, then you make decisions of what kind of engagements you'll make in the political arena.'"
  • The Island logo 192 x 144
    Excerpt from The Island -- "Stephanie Tully, assistant professor of marketing at University of South Carolina Marshall, and Tom Meyvis, marketing professor at the New York University Stern School of Business, conducted two experiments. They found that participants who thought about a future experience predicted they would think about and talk about their experience more often than other participants reported actually having done for a past experience."
  • Press Mentor logo 192 x 144
    Excerpt from Press Mentor -- "'I think Republicans need to take income inequality more seriously,' said social psychologist Jonathan Haidt, who teaches Ethical Leadership at New York University’s Stern School of Business. It’s 'not because I favor equality of outcomes. I do not. I think the Right is correct to stress merit and earned rewards, not handouts and forced equality. But I think what Republicans are blind to is that power corrupts.'"

    Excerpt from Inc. -- "'If he was stepping down purely because he wanted to go do something else, he would have waited until there was a successor in place,' suggests J.P. Eggers, an associate professor of management at NYU's Stern School of Business. 'The timing seems a little odd,' he added."
  • bloomberg logo new
    Excerpt from Bloomberg -- "More households have [Amazon] Prime than go to church, voted in the election or have a landline phone. And if trends continue, in about three years more people are going to have a pipe of stuff into their home vis-a-vis Amazon Prime than cable television. So Amazon now has a commercial relationship with the wealthiest households in the world and it's growing faster than any other relationship."
  • economist logo feature
    Excerpt from The Economist -- "Declining competition does more than harm some consumers; it makes firms lazy. The authors calculate that if leading firms had maintained their share of overall investment since 2000, the American economy would have 4% more capital today, an amount roughly equivalent to two years’ investment by non-financial companies."
  • greek reporter logo
    Excerpt from Greek Reporter -- "The Greek loan is so small it does not matter that is expensive, but if Greece were to go out in the markets by the end of 2018 paying the same interest of 4.6% it would be completely irresponsible, Economides warns. 'It would not be a way out of the crisis. The Greek debt is completely unsustainable and now we are adding to the debt.'"
  • psychcentral logo feature
    Excerpt from PsychCentral -- "New York University researchers discovered people with higher cognitive abilities are more likely to learn and apply social stereotypes. However, in a series of experiments, investigators discovered that those with elevated intelligence can also easily unlearn stereotypes when presented with new information."
  • financial times logo feature
    Excerpt from the Financial Times -- "An intriguing new blog post by Stephen Cecchetti and Kermit Schoenholtz draws attention to a third trilemma, one concerning international financial policy. The trilemma here is between cross-border financial flows (again), national as opposed to global financial regulation and financial stability."
  • bloomberg logo new
    Excerpt from Bloomberg -- "Seven of the top fastest growing apparel and beauty brands on Amazon are brands you likely haven't heard of before. We no longer need to defer to the large brand, our favorite brand is the brand that Amazon or Trip Advisor or Google tells us is our favorite brand. We used to want Dannon yogurt then we went to Chobani and now it is some Kefir yogurt that we saw Beyonce eating on Instagram. There is growth in the long tail."
  • Benefit News Logo 192 x 144
    Excerpt from Benefit News -- "There’s other research by Lisa Leslie and Colleen Manchester that didn’t look at gender or parental status, but looked at what does your manager assume the reason for your flexible work arrangement is. If the manager believes that you’re working at home for some productivity reason, then that’s viewed positively. If the manager assumes you’re working at home for a family reason, then that’s judged negatively."
  • yahoo finance logo feature
    Excerpt from Yahoo Finance -- "Damodaran, who teaches corporate finance and valuation, says trying to force growth in older companies like IBM could actually have a negative impact on them, because they might end up simply throwing good money away. 'When you’re 75, you’d love to be 35 again, but you’re not going to,' Damodaran said. 'So that’s the way I think of aging companies. Trying to turn them around might be the most dangerous thing you can do.'"
  • washington post logo feature
    Excerpt from The Washington Post -- "In a paper published this week by the National Bureau of Economic Research, they argue that increasing concentration of economic power in the hands of relatively few behemoth corporations -- in some cases to the point where companies enjoy a near monopoly -- could explain the pattern: The big firms, unconcerned about their competitors, simply have no need to invest in staying ahead. 'It explains a big chunk of why investment is low in the U.S. today,' Philippon said."
  • telegraph logo feature
    Excerpt from The Telegraph -- "All those politicians concerned or interested in the subject of executive pay should junk the suggestions of their peers and spend quite some time digesting a comprehensive new academic paper by Alex Edmans, Xavier Gabaix and Dirk Jenter entitled 'Executive Compensation: A Survey of Theory and Evidence'."
