    Excerpt from Fortune -- "'The EU is making the same mistakes over and over and over again,' says Viral Acharya, a professor at NYU’s Stern School of Business. 'They’re not demanding that the banks be recapitalized as they should be, and allowing things to get worse by enabling lenders to keep zombie loans they should have dumped years ago.'"

    Excerpt from the Associated Press -- "'They didn’t expect to win so no one has any idea what to do now,' said Pankaj Ghemawat, a professor at IESE Business School in Spain and NYU, of the campaign to leave the EU. 'The analogy that comes to mind is the dog chasing the car. Sometimes the dog catches the car, and then doesn’t know what to do with it.'"

    Excerpt from BBC News -- "It's quite possible that Uber has prioritized rapid growth over deepening its understanding of the culture and business practices of the countries that it enters. I certainly think that they prioritize getting a presence on the ground over a careful, measured entry strategy. But in the business that they're in, that might be necessary. Because in each city, the company that gains drivers and gains passengers early is likely to have an advantage in the long run because when you have more drivers, the passengers like your service. And the passengers like your service, you become more attractive to drivers."
  • mit sloan management review logo feature
    Excerpt from MIT Sloan Management Review -- "In the discussion about why incumbent firms fail to adopt radical technologies — which has been an ongoing research topic and the subject of many popular and academic books — this has been a fundamental question: Are these firms unwilling to do it, or are they unable to do it? What we show in this paper is that they’re certainly able to do it, and they’re typically very successful when they do it, on average."
  • cnbc logo feature
    Excerpt from CNBC -- "I think ceding China to Didi, while it might seem like a loss for Uber in the short run, is a bigger win for Uber in many ways than it is for Didi because it takes a country that was a money pit for the company, and in some ways is the biggest threat to its existence, off the table, and allows it to focus on the rest of the world."
  • atlantic logo feature
    Excerpt from The Atlantic -- "'It's a truce, but it's also a victory for Didi and it's a smart victory for Uber,' said Arun Sundararajan, a professor at New York University’s Stern School of business and the author of the book The Sharing Economy: The End of Employment and the Rise of Crowd-Based Capitalism. 'The only real existential threat that Uber faces is the fact that they are trying to win China, and they're burning a lot of money trying to gain market share in China in the face of a much larger and well-funded domestic competitor.' Sundararajan says that the deal takes China off the table, and, with it, the worries of many potential Uber investors."

    Excerpt from BusinessBecause -- "NYU’s Stern School of Business offers courses on basic data handling skills plus programming languages like Python, and an introduction to machine learning. ... 'Business schools are putting more artificial intelligence or data science content into their curricula,' says professor Vasant Dhar of NYU Stern and the Center for Data Science."

    Excerpt from The Chronicle of Higher Education -- "Three higher-education administrators and four professors are among the 'great immigrants' recognized by the Carnegie Corporation of New York this year for their notable contributions to the progress of American society. The administrators are Ronald J. Daniels, president of the Johns Hopkins University, from Canada; Peter Blair Henry, dean of the Leonard N. Stern School of Business at New York University, from Jamaica; and Farnam Jahanian, provost and chief academic officer of Carnegie Mellon University, from Iran."
  • economist logo feature
    Excerpt from The Economist -- "As Jonathan Haidt points out in the American Interest, a quarterly review, patriots 'think their country and its culture are unique and worth preserving'. Some think their country is superior to all others, but most love it for the same reason that people love their spouse: 'because she or he is yours'. He argues that immigration tends not to provoke social discord if it is modest in scale, or if immigrants assimilate quickly."

    Excerpt from CCTV -- "'There is a deeper long-term trend we see in a number of countries but particularly in the U.S., and that’s rising inequality,' Joe Foudy, professor at the New York University Stern School of Business, said. 'The U.S. economy has grown significantly since 2008, but median wages are stagnating, while a lot of other people’s costs are going up.'"

    Excerpt from The Wall Street Journal -- "Prof. Acharya’s analysis calculates banks’ leverage ratios, or equity as a share of total assets, based on their current stock-market valuations. 'When a bank’s market value of equity is approaching zero, it doesn’t matter what the book value of a bank’s equity is compared to what investors believe it actually is; Lehman’s was positive when it collapsed,' Prof. Acharya said in an interview."
  • bloomberg view logo
    Excerpt from Bloomberg View -- "Instead of assuming that people are perfectly rational, he theorizes that they have limited attention -- what psychologist Herbert Simon called 'bounded rationality.' When interest rates or gross domestic product change, people in Gabaix’s model don't quite realize that things are different. Even more importantly, they’re short-sighted -- they don’t think as much about the probability of a recession happening 10 years from now as they do about one occurring in the next six months."
  • forbes logo feature
    Excerpt from Forbes -- "Both Reggie Award winning examples illustrate how insightful, strategic and innovative activations, that are original and very different from anything ever done before, can massively impact awareness, willingness to try, brand perceptions, and earn extensive target audience amplification: all by capturing imaginations, creating a sense of awe and evoking positive emotions. Both also highlight the benefits of thoughtful, strategic partnerships to cost effectively amplify what brands can achieve on their own."
  • entrepreneur logo feature
    Excerpt from Entrepreneur -- "In 1997, in the dawn of e-commerce, a New York University professor named Yannis Bakos wrote a well-regarded paper that predicted the internet would change pricing forever. Imagine the old days: You went to a store and had no idea what other stores charged for the same products -- which meant the store you were in could jack up the price. But once everyone could comparison shop online, Bakos reasoned, every site would likely have to offer the same price. And yet, it turns out, many shoppers don’t do the research. If they like eBay, they buy on eBay. Simple as that."

    Excerpt from Quartz -- “'The reason Facebook and Google are able to do what they do is because they are viewed as benevolent dictatorships,' says Aswath Damodaran, a professor at New York University’s Stern Business School. That’s not necessarily a bad thing—it’s preferable to a company run like a chaotic democracy, he notes—but 'you’re going to have to accept the fact you have no control over the outcome.'”

    Excerpt from -- "'Outside of media circles, Roger Ailes is not all that well known,' added Sharlach, who also teaches management communication at New York University's Stern School of Business. 'It might have seemed like the sky is falling to those inside Fox News, but the actual impact on the audience, perhaps, is not all that great. Most Fox News viewers may not have any idea who Roger Ailes is or was.'"

    Excerpt from CBS News -- "As Salomon notes, Verizon and Yahoo are vastly different types of businesses which will make integrating them a challenge. 'I think it will be difficult for (Verizon) to convince talent from Yahoo to stay,' he writes."
  • fortune logo feature
    Excerpt from Fortune -- "Verizon isn’t purchasing either the Alibaba or Yahoo Japan stakes, so it probably won’t be receiving those dividends. So if Yahoo is generating about $1.2 billion in annual free cash flow, the best assumption is that Verizon will get $142 million less, or $1.05 billion. 'That means Verizon is paying around five times free cash flow, based on the $4.8 billion price,' says Baruch Lev, distinguished professor of accounting at New York University’s Stern School of Business. 'That isn’t a high number. But I’m also assuming that almost all the cash flows excluding the dividends are going to Verizon. If that’s not the case, the multiple could be excessive.'"
  • bloomberg logo
    Excerpt from Bloomberg -- "This is over. They'll give her peace with honor. Let her leave gracefully. But this is a series of botched acquisitions, severance payments to employees who were there for 14 months in excess of $100 million. A decrease in EBITDA of 50%, a decrease in revenues of 20%, and in exchange she's walking out the door with a quarter of a billion dollars. I think this kind of thing is the reason why people lose faith in corporations. So best of luck to her. But this is the end of her reign, I believe, at Yahoo."
