    Excerpt from Forbes -- "Over the past few years, the trend that started with Paris-based Ladurée and Pierre Hermé innovating with an unprecedented range of exotic macaron cookies and fillings, has escalated geometrically to include new innovators who are 'blowing out' other traditional sweet categories in previously unimaginable flavors, designs, colors, and textures. Many of these pioneers already have beautiful cookbooks. Paris food retail is getting more and more specialized, and customers are making the effort to travel considerable distances and happy to wait in line to buy a single-type of product, as long as it’s the best of it’s kind and there’s a 'wow' factor and sense of discovery. Here are 7 of the best sweet category dedicated shops, with an eighth example in the condiment category: French mustard."

    Excerpt from Reuters -- "Beyond featuring women, the company appears to be tailoring some of its messages to females, said Alvin Lieberman, a marketing professor at New York University's Stern School of Business. In a four-minute comedy sketch on 'Jimmy Kimmel Live,' Harrison Ford and Chewbacca resolved a purported feud with an endearing, hug-it-out moment. 'That is not what your high-adrenaline, action-oriented male population is looking to see,' Lieberman said of the video, which has been viewed more than 1.1 million times on YouTube. 'It sells the characters.'"

    Excerpt from Bloomberg -- "We are expecting a lot of volatility this week, but in fact we saw it last week, I think. In the run up to the Fed's decision, I think a lot of pressures that were already building in the high-yield bond market really came to a head on Friday, and we had a pretty big bloodbath ..."

    Excerpt from BusinessBecause -- "'It is not just about cutting direct costs,' says Professor Anindya Ghose, director of NYU Stern’s Center for Business Analytics. 'It is about identifying high-performing employees, predicting their next performance milestone, and carving out their trajectories and rewarding them.'"

    Excerpt from Fortune -- "Network neutrality has contributed very significantly to the fast and vigorous growth of the high technology sector in the US while ensuring a level playing field in competition. Hopefully the rules will be upheld by the Court of Appeals."

    Excerpt from PBS NewsHour -- "Haidt convened a group of policy people from across the political spectrum to talk about issues of concern to each side, and discovered that one issue everyone really cared about was poverty. The group worked together for more than a year to produce a report, released last week, entitled Opportunity, Responsibility and Security: A Consensus Plan for Reducing Poverty and Restoring the American Dream."
  • bloomberg logo feat
    Excerpt from Bloomberg -- "When you did the survey, not only were the results that the ROEs weren't going to meet their cost of capital. But what was surprising was the analysts and the institutional investors believe that the Street has done a very adequate job cutting compensation. So those two don't really tie together, do they? So... you saw a demand among institutional investors for more strategic change."

    Excerpt from The Wall Street Journal -- "The companies are targeting $3 billion in cost savings. DuPont said it plans to cut about 10% of its global workforce before the actual merger. 'These three companies will not have more employees than two companies did,' said Mr. Galloway. 'This is going to be a lesson in human resources.'"
  • city journal logo
    Excerpt from City Journal -- "Over any useful timeline, the full integration of a large share of Syrian refugees into second countries like Jordan or third countries like the United States is a nonstarter. The zonal approach is a practical and politically realistic way to offer job opportunities to refugees—Syrian or otherwise. Doing so would enhance the economic prospects of the countries that are home to the world’s refugee camps while strengthening the post-conflict prospects of refugees and their homelands."

    Excerpt from OZY -- "Nike ... opted not to renew Curry’s contract when it came up two years ago — right before his title-winning MVP performance. 'You make a decision on an athlete, and then keep your fingers crossed,' says Lieberman. Now, Under Armour has Curry through 2024, with CEO Kevin Plank publicly saying he wants to create a 'billion-dollar basketball business' around the diminunitive point guard. For now, Nike still holds 95 percent of the $5.2 billion basketball shoe market, and Lieberman is skeptical one athlete is enough to shift the balance of power."'
  • yahoo news logo
    Excerpt from Yahoo -- "The more unusual your name, the more likely you are to see and interact with the world differently. 'It’s a self-fulfilling prophecy that begins with an unusual name and ultimately leads to unconventional or creative thinking,' Adam Alter, a professor of psychology and marketing at New York University who has studied how names can affect the way people are perceived, told Yahoo Parenting earlier this year. All of which is just logical: When you grow up with a name that nobody else around you has, you become used to, and thus less afraid of, deviating from the norm."
  • atlantic logo feature
    Excerpt from The Atlantic -- "... It’s possible that even once new regulations kick in, they won't be as protective as some might hope, which means that businesses still bear some responsibility in caring for workers, says Arun Sundararajan, a professor at NYU’s Stern School of Business. 'We don't have a rich and deep government-provided social-safety net. If we look to the government as the place the social-safety net is going to come from, we'll fall short.'"
  • marketplace radio logo feature
    Excerpt from Marketplace -- "'Investment is one of the drivers of economic growth,' Sylla said. 'But ever since the financial crisis, companies have been reluctant to make new investments. And that's partly responsible for our slow economic growth.' Sylla said investor pressure is particularly acute for manufacturing firms such as Dow and Dupont; they face global competition, in a way American tech companies don't."
  • cnbc logo feature
    Excerpt from CNBC -- "I think of Yahoo as a very simple company to think about. It's really a holding company. Right now it's like a closed mutual fund with investments in two other companies. I think about the operating assets as just a distraction. It's less than 10% of the value of the company, and that's all Ms. Mayers has been in control of .. over the last four years. So the reality is, I think if you strip it down to basics, you take the operating assets out... it's really two holdings. And it's only taxes that determine what the value of the company should be."

    Excerpt from MarketWatch -- "More than 90% of people said they believe it’s better to eat a well-balanced diet than to use diet products in a 2015 survey of 2,000 Internet users by market research company Mintel. ... As a result, there has been a shift from touting the explicit weight-loss benefits of fitness and food products to promoting an overall lifestyle that is sustainable, said Priya Raghubir, the chair of the marketing department at New York University’s Stern School of Business."

    Excerpt from Business Standard -- "Aswath Damodaran, professor of corporate finance and valuation at the Stern School of Business at New York University, said, 'I think it is not only dangerous for any young, start-up, and especially with huge growth potential and large losses today to borrow money. By borrowing money, they run the risk of default and in the process, they are putting their growth potential at risk. Why do that?'"
  • bloomberg logo feat
    Excerpt from Bloomberg -- "I would say the board has been infected with a severe case of common sense, and when you have an asset that is trading at less than zero, the disposition of that asset is accretive to shareholders. And they recognize that. They're going to sell Yahoo. It's time for this soap opera to end. ... It's going to be good for shareholders. ... It's the right thing to do."
  • wall street journal logo feature
    Excerpt from The Wall Street Journal -- "Norway’s sovereign-wealth fund should be given the leeway to plow more money into real estate and further diversify its portfolio by investing a chunk of its $850 billion in infrastructure, a government-commissioned expert group said Tuesday. The fund, managed by Norway’s central bank and commonly referred to as the oil fund, should be allowed to invest up to 10% of its value in infrastructure and to raise its real-estate portfolio to 10% from a current ceiling of 5%, the group said in a report published Tuesday. The government 'should open up for unlisted infrastructure investment in the management mandate to Norges Bank to take advantage of investment opportunities unavailable in the listed space,' said the group, which was led by Prof. Stijn Van Nieuwerburgh at New York University."

    Excerpt from Council on Foreign Relations blog -- "No single actor can underwrite the significant costs of upgrading Bangladesh’s garment sector. Local and international participants should share the costs. Detroit provides a useful model, in which the public-private Blight Removal Taskforce successfully surveyed the city’s problem, developed a blueprint for addressing it, and raised public and private funds to meet the $800 million price tag of clearing blighted structures."

    Excerpt from OZY -- "[Economides] believes Greece still has five to 10 years before it can 'convince the world that it is at a stage of recovery.' Meanwhile, having a market for their products is helping them cushion the blow dealt by the economic crisis while fueling Bulgaria’s sputtering economic growth."
  • Linkedin logo
    Excerpt from LinkedIn -- "Just a few years ago, Best Buy looked like it was on its way to failure, especially as its competitor Circuit City filed for bankruptcy in 2008. The company has since turned itself around and is even considered an undervalued stock at times. A big part of the turnaround was due to CEO Hubert Joly’s 'Renew Blue' program, implemented three years ago. However, L2 data shows digital investment played a big role in preserving and improving the company’s value."
  • fortune logo feature
    Excerpt from Fortune -- "In July, Eli Bartov, a professor at New York University Stern School of Business and two other researchers found that 'aggregate opinion' from tweets before earnings announcements could predict earnings surprises as well as market reactions for individual stocks, leading to outperformance of 5% to 10% per year."
  • washington post logo feature
    Excerpt from The Washington Post -- "In an interview with OnLeadership, [Damodaran] calls Steve Jobs' revival at Apple something few would -- 'a great corporate tragedy' -- not because of what Apple achieved, but because of how it's been held up as a nearly impossible-to-reach model for other companies."
  • bloomberg logo feat
    Excerpt from Bloomberg -- "We've had a lot of usury laws in history, and many people trace it back to Aristotle. You know, a very great philosopher, obviously. One of the greatest ever. But he has a curious idea that, I think the translation of the Greeks is: 'Money is barren.' Money doesn't by itself have any productivity. Therefore, interest rates should be zero. When you lend something to somebody, you should not charge them interest. And that was a view, I think, that was not widespread. But it was a philosophical view. Then it was picked up by St. Thomas Aquinas in the Middle Ages and it became a part of Catholic teaching."

    Excerpt from Forbes -- "Reverse mentoring can be a fun and enlightening experience for both parties. It frees Marketing execs of the embarrassment of looking and being out of date and out of touch, and importantly for the business, helps execs understand and adopt new approaches (assuming they’re better) more quickly. It’s a win/win way to infuse new perspectives in the organization."
