    Excerpt from Yahoo! Finance -- "'Whether China grows GDP at 5% or 7% and hits a rough patch or dodges a recession, there are several hundred million people on the cusp of entering the middle class,' he says. Apple products sell well even in tougher economic times, Foudy adds. 'Spending on phones, it's just not like cars, consumer durables [or] things like vacations, which tend to rise and fall with the business cycle,' he says. 'Combine this with a Chinese preference for products that can serve as public signals of success and Apple is well positioned there for future growth.'"

    Excerpt from HBS Working Knowledge -- "When faced with a decision on how to allocate resources between themselves and others, some people are 'pro-social,' meaning they are likely to value more equal distributions of resources, while others are 'pro-self,' meaning they try and maximize value for themselves. ... Santana explores these questions in a new working paper, Because We're Partners: How Social Values and Relationship Norms Influence Consumer Payments in Pay-What-You-Want Contexts, written with Vicki G. Morwitz, the Harvey Golub Professor of Business Leadership and Professor of Marketing at New York University's Stern School of Business."

    Excerpt from Mashable -- "'It's one thing to put infrastructure together, it's another thing to get enough ventures around you where it suddenly starts to look like the place to go as opposed to someone having to be the pioneer to go,' says Jeffrey Carr, a business professor at New York University who focuses on entrepreneurship issues. 'There just is a huge hurdle for this kind of thing to work.'"

    Excerpt from Bloomberg -- "'Because Uber is a brash, hot, growing company, they can often be a focal point for a polarized discussion,' said Arun Sundararajan, a professor at New York University’s Stern School of Business. 'It’s easy to be pro- or anti-Uber.'"

    Excerpt from The New York Times -- "For society more broadly, Thomas Philippon, a professor at New York University who has studied the economics of the financial industry, said that Wall Street had grown bloated in the three decades before the financial crisis and was shrinking to a size more in keeping with historical norms. 'It’s all for the best,' Mr. Philippon said. 'We had way too many people trading before.'"

    Excerpt from The Conversation -- "In our work, we show that governments with deeper pockets are able to offer more comprehensive deposit insurance programs and are therefore more willing to undertake and disclose informative stress tests. In contrast, fiscally constrained governments cannot afford to guarantee as many deposits and will therefore not risk disclosing detailed information that could cause bank runs."

    Excerpt from Knowledge @ Wharton -- "The president has spoken often about greater engagement in the world, but a principled engagement, and I support that... Nigeria is an enormously important country in Africa, but when we talk about economic development, the other side of that coin is the weakness in governance, and that's really been a challenge for many decades in Nigeria."

    Excerpt from The New York Times -- "... The simplest way to reduce the number of vehicles on the road is to increase the number of people traveling in each vehicle, and these new ridesharing apps hold particular promise on this front. Services like UberPool and Lyft Line use sophisticated algorithms to match people going in the same direction in real-time, increasing vehicle occupancy with minimal rider inconvenience. They are modern-day, market-based, digital successors to yesterday’s neighborhood carpool."

    Excerpt from Wallethub -- "Buying a home is a substantial commitment. In addition to the monthly mortgage payment, there are property taxes, homeowners insurance, and regular maintenance expenses which add up to 3-6% of the value of the house each year. And that is absent major maintenance expenses such as roof replacement, new HVAC systems, kitchen remodeling, etc. Therefore, it is important to have some financial buffer before making the plunge. I think a good rule of thumb is that the total cost of spending on a house should not be much more than a third of total spending budget."

    Excerpt from Planetizen -- "By measuring 20 streetscape features and numerous other variables for 588 blocks in New York City, we were able to identify variables that explain pedestrian traffic volumes. We found significant positive correlations between three out of 20 streetscape features with pedestrian counts after controlling for density and other built environmental variables. The significant streetscape features are the number of pieces of street furniture, the proportion of windows on the street, and the proportion of active street frontage."

    Excerpt from Sports Illustrated -- "Wertheim and Sommers discuss the definition of rivalries, partly based on a study led by New York University Assistant Professor of Management and Organizations Gavin Kilduff, titled 'The psychology of rivalry: a relationally dependent analysis of competition,' which investigates the idea that teams’ similarity and histories can predict rivalry, and that rivalry may affect athletes’ motivation and performance. Can a person have an unrequited rival? Or are rivalries actually quite symmetrical?"

    Excerpt from Bloomberg -- "There is a major piece of legislation that is going to come up on Wednesday, this week, in the Greek Parliament, and there will be defections from the ruling party. And we'll see how it will go. It will most likely pass with the vote of the opposition, but the ruling party is becoming weaker and weaker... most likely, we'll see elections in September or October."

  • voice of america logo feature
    Excerpt from Voice of America -- "Paul Wachtel, an economics professor at New York University, told VOA that long-standing U.S. sanctions and the more recent U.N. restrictions "severely hampered" Tehran's economy, pushing it into a 'deep recession.' He said Iran's economy could recover within two or three years of the lifting of the sanctions. But Wachtel said questions remain about what Tehran might do with its windfall of cash, as frozen bank accounts are unlocked at the same time the country boosts its oil exports. 'It is enough money to make a lot of trouble' in the Mideast through support of insurgencies Iran favors, Wachtel said."

    Excerpt from Bloomberg -- "Proposed legislation seeks to redirect investments to poor and rural communities and would make it tougher for developers to access funds in big cities such as New York, where at least $3.2 billion of EB-5 cash has gone toward building the skyline since 2010, according to a study by Jeanne Calderon and Gary Friedlander, professors at New York University’s Stern School of Business."

    Excerpt from Washington Examiner -- "The Volcker Rule, criticized for its complexity, has already forced some megabanks to divest in ways they might not have had to under the late-stage versions of Glass-Steagall... The 21st Century Glass-Steagall Act would go far beyond that, White said... The financial industry would survive, he said, but might not be safer. 'If Glass-Steagall, with all of its pristine beauty of 1933, had still been in place, nothing would have been different' in 2008, he said."

  • Mashable Logo
    Excerpt from Mashable -- "Arun Sundararajan, a professor of business at New York University, says several startups in the on-demand market, including Lyft and Airbnb, have ramped political efforts at an earlier stage precisely because these services largely operate offline and run up against local regulators earlier. 'They all developed political and government relation functions way, way earlier than the typical technology company,' he says. Even by that standard, however, Sundararajan notes that the political maneuvering of these other companies are 'not as brash and in your face as Uber.'"

    Excerpt from The New York Times -- "Yet compared with its turmoil in some other big cities, Uber has negotiated the regulatory wringer of New York with relative ease. 'So far, this has been one of their success stories,' said Arun Sundararajan, a professor at the Stern School of Business at New York University who has studied the company. 'But if this [new legistlation] goes through, it will severely restrict their ability to grow.'"
  • voice of america logo feature
    Excerpt from Voice of America -- "With sanctions being removed slowly, by timetable agreement, Paul Wachtel, economics professor at New York University's Stern School of Business, said, 'In the short run, the effects will be relatively limited. The sanctions don’t even get removed immediately...I wouldn't expect much to happen for the next six months, a year, maybe two years. Beyond that, it will begin to affect the world economy. In a sense, Iran is a large economy, it’s got a large population, a well-educated population and lots of economic resources. If this agreement leads to Iran being integrated into the global economy, you have got a brand-new big player in the world economy.'"

    Excerpt from Bloomberg -- "'The significant number of ‘no’ votes from Syriza, including by some of the ministers, puts Mr. Tsipras at a very difficult position,' said Nicholas Economides, a professor at New York University’s Stern School of Business. 'Either he has to continue as a minority government at the mercy of the votes of the pro-Europe opposition parties, or create a new coalition that includes the opposition parties, or call for elections.'"
