    Excerpt from Forbes -- “It’s important to also talk about the positive examples of ethical behavior, not just the bad ones. Focusing on the positive reasons you are in business, and reinforcing the good things people do strengthens ethical choices as ‘the norm’ of the organization.”

    Excerpt from Marketplace -- "After World War II, American companies 'pretty much had the world to themselves,' Sylla said. Most of their rivals in Europe and Japan were rebuilding after the war’s destruction, so big companies were raking in cash and didn’t have any issue being generous. 'When we compare that time to today, we find everyone seemed to share in the prosperity, from the corporate executives right down to the assembly line workers,' Sylla said."

    Excerpt from CFA Institute blog -- "Damodaran believes that looking for specific countries to invest in is dangerous, cautioning that 'cheap countries are cheap for a reason.' For example, it would be irresponsible to invest more in Russia than its position in the global economy merits, even though it is probably the cheapest market in the world. On the other hand, Brazil looks like a cheap market right now, but investors should find exposure to Brazil at the right price, rather than avoid it outright."

    Excerpt from Kiplinger -- "Indexes are constructed and then left alone for the most part, right? Not really. Even the S&P 500, which is weighted by market value and is not rebalanced, undergoes 20 to 25 changes in an average year as companies are added to and removed from the index, according to a study by Jeffrey Wurgler, a professor at NYU Stern School of Business."

    Excerpt from Forbes -- "Sundararajan’s sympathies lie with these legions of new micro-entrepreneurs, trying to build successful new lines of work in the sharing economy. In his book, 'The Sharing Economy,' the NYU professor expresses concern that everything could turn into 'a disparaging race to the bottom that leaves workers around the world working more hours for less money and with minimal job security and benefits.'"

    Excerpt from The New York Times -- "'The left is very worried about homophobia but it’s also very worried about Islamophobia, so there is going to be some real cognitive dissonance on the left as people talking about a Muslim killing many gay people,' said Jonathan Haidt, a social psychologist and professor at New York University’s Stern School of Business."

    Excerpt from the Financial Times -- "Much of the current literature advises first-time exporters to draw up demand-led strategies that will take their products into the largest or fastest growing markets. Measures of foreign market potential in this respect might include per capita income, population or consumption growth. While these are important factors, they can be overstressed, says Pankaj Ghemawat... Instead, a well-conceived export strategy will take the 'closeness' of a potential market into account, defined broadly to encompass cultural and administrative similarity as much as geographical proximity, he says."

    Excerpt from Barron's -- "[Lev's] contention is that generally accepted accounting principles, or GAAP, have lost their relevance over the last 40 years. The industrial economy, he says, with its emphasis on physical assets of property, plant and equipment, and inventory levels has been supplanted by a new economy in which intangible assets like research and development, information technology, unique business franchises, and powerful brands rule the roost."

    Excerpt from The Economist -- "Financial titans might splutter into their champagne at Mr Philippon’s finding, and point to the reduction in trading spreads or even the rise of firms like Vanguard. But it is the cost to the end-user that is the key. Mr Philippon’s data suggest that money saved in one area has been offset by new charges elsewhere."

    Excerpt from Yahoo Tech -- "Watching moments unfold through a viewfinder may seem like a narrow, distracted point of view, but a new study suggests otherwise. People who take photos of their experiences actually enjoy them more, according to a study published by the American Psychological Association."

    Excerpt from Marketplace -- "Russell Winer a professor of marketing at NYU’s Stern School of Business, said diners like to feel like they’re in charge, and taking the tip out of their hands — literally — may not make them feel at ease. 'People like the discretion,' he said. 'They like the separation of the tip from the meal because it gives them the opportunity to reward excellent service and penalize terrible service.'"

    Excerpt from Christian Science Monitor -- "'Australia has been using the same brown packaging for some time, and a review of two dozen studies showed that it deters smoking – and also seems to make the cigarettes taste worse, which was an unexpected side-effect of the repackaging,' Prof. Alter writes. 'A cigarette that comes from an ugly brown box will, similarly, seem less appealing for the same reason. We associate that brown color with so many negative substances and ideas that the cigarette comes to take on those negative associations as well. I certainly think it should be tried in America.'"
  • China Radio International - NewsPlus Radio logo
    Excerpt from China Radio International -- "The key effect ... of interest rate moves, at least in the short term, are on currency. So we actually saw with Yellen's statement about sort of postponing an increase in interest rates that the dollar was weaker. By reverse, if we actually see that increase in the short term, especially if it's a surprise increase, then there is a danger that that will put pressure on the dollar-yuan exchange rate from a negative standpoint from China's perspective."

    Except from the CFA Institute blog -- "According to new research from the Stern School of Business at New York University, for every 1% increase in interest rates, the rate banks pay on a typical savings deposit rises by just 0.34%. So even a 2% increase in rates would translate into a relatively paltry 0.68% bump in what consumers would receive from the bank. Not exactly a silver bullet for retirement planning."

    Excerpt from the Financial Times -- "NYU’s Prof Raghubir says there are good reasons to cut brand spend when the going gets tough: 'You probably don’t want to be investing too heavily at a time when a greater mention of your brand is only going to backfire and remind people that you exist, when you’re trying to just weather a crisis.'"

  • Share Radio Morning Money 192 x 144
    Excerpt from Share Radio Morning Money -- "They have over-mined and overproduced. And basically, they're facing a challenge that a lot of mass market producers are facing, which is an irony, right? Because diamonds are supposed to be part of luxury aspirations in the luxury market. The idea is to create this lifestyle aspiration. However, that doesn't mean that they do justice to their product. If we really want to help the diamond industry survive in the long term, we need to also create again the aspiration for the product itself. But a product that has true value and is really free of conflict diamonds and black diamonds and all these things."

    Excerpt from Forbes -- "As more and more firms see the benefits of doing customer experience well, the practice will become an increasingly important part of brand marketing plans. Limitations in the number of people who physically visit the locations are offset by the extensive good will and social media they can generate."
  • marketwatch logo feature
    Excerpt from MarketWatch -- "There are several reasons why many large companies are reevaluating their performance review systems, said Steven Blader, a professor of management and organizations at New York University’s Stern School of Business. As companies compete for talent, they have to pay attention to what employees want, he said; plus, negative feelings about 'big data' could be part of the reason employees no longer want to be evaluated by a number, but would prefer more specific feedback."

    Excerpt from the Financial Times -- "'Brands shouldn’t change their name for the sake of being hip,' said Tülin Erdem, a marketing professor at New York University’s Stern School of Business. She said 'it seems like [Tribune] is acting very quickly without strategic focus to change the name.'"

  • fortune logo feature
    Excerpt from Fortune -- "So why has the IMF made such an about-face? New York University economist Gian Luca Clementi says that papers like this one are at least in some ways designed to change public perception, particularly in Europe. Prior to the 2008 financial crisis, IMF policies mostly affected countries in the developing world. In the past decade, though, European countries like Portugal and Greece have been on the other side, borrowing and repaying rather than lending. Clementi doesn’t see IMF policy changing much, because the major countries that make up the organization, including Germany, the U.K. and the U.S., aren’t likely to be amenable to such changes."
