    Excerpt from Outside Magazine -- "Kilduff pored over six years of race data from a U.S. running club. After identifying pairs of rivals, he studied their results. The effect of racing a rival showed improvement by as much as five seconds per kilometre. That’s enough to shave 50 seconds off your next 10K."

    Excerpt from The Washington Post -- "Scott Galloway, a professor who teaches marketing and branding at New York University’s Stern School of Business, said he is skeptical that Jet’s pure e-commerce model can result in a viable business. 'I think [Jet] is a retailer designed by a consultant that makes sense in theory and has trouble in execution,' Galloway said."

    Excerpt from LinkedIn -- "Department stores are alive and well in 2015. Frequently dismissed as dinosaurs outmaneuvered by digital players, department stores can not only survive the dramatic fall-off in foot traffic seen over the past few years but will ultimately fare better than pure-play e-commerce. Contrary to long-held conventional wisdom, department stores will be among the biggest winners in retail."

    Excerpt from Bloomberg -- "Collective bargaining is a poor fit for tech companies, says Melissa Schilling, a management professor at New York University’s business school. 'When you have an industry with a lot of technological change, you really need to preserve your ability to be nimble,' she says."

    Excerpt from The Washington Post -- "One of the messages of Haidt’s book The Righteous Mind is that the left and the right tend to have different moral 'foundations,' by which he means that they get emotional and intense about different kinds of moral situations. In Haidt’s analysis, it isn’t that the left (or environmental left) lacks emotionality, but rather that conservatives sense a broader suite of moral foundations related to loyalty, respect for authority, and disgust — as well as the more typically liberal moral foundations related to fairness and protecting the vulnerable from harm."

    Excerpt from Marketplace -- "'When investors think all this stuff is implicitly guaranteed, nobody’s doing credit analysis, nobody’s kicking the tires,' says Jennifer Carpenter, associate professor at NYU's Stern School of Business... 'The role of deposit insurance is actually to tell people what’s not insured,' says Carpenter."

    Excerpt from USA Today -- "Taking a trip down memory lane isn't new for marketers, who use nostalgia to connect products to our 'need to love and be loved,' according to Scott Galloway, a clinical professor of marketing at New York University Stern School of Business... 'The idea of connecting emotion to a product is to a certain extent the definition of branding,' Galloway says."

    Excerpt from BizEd -- "The Foreign Policy Association (FPA) has awarded its Foreign Policy Association Medal to Peter Henry, economist and dean of New York University’s Stern School of Business. The FPA recognized Henry for his contributions to raising the public’s awareness of, understanding of, and participation in American foreign policy, as well as for his role in preparing future business leaders for a global economy. Past winners include former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton; William C. Dudley, president and CEO of the Federal Reserve Bank of New York; and Mo Ibrahim, founder of the Mo Ibrahim Foundation."

    Excerpt from TIME -- "In Japan, Abe has the political capital to apologize for historical aggression, but chooses not to. Japan is too important to Obama’s 'pivot to Asia' strategy to risk estranging its leaders, especially with the critical Trans-Pacific Partnership trade deal on the horizon. If the pivot to Asia is to succeed and Japan’s new foreign policy ambitions are to be realized, America’s democratic allies in Asia need to find a way to move forward. Abe is talking in the U.S., but what matters is whether Asia is listening."

    Excerpt from Politico -- "Pankaj Ghemawat of IESE Business School in Barcelona has estimated that foreign direct investment accounts for only 9 percent of all fixed investment worldwide. What is more, examining private finance alone is misleading. Many countries have public development banks, including export-import banks like America’s, whose mission is to promote national infrastructure development or to finance foreign sales of national companies. These embody statist mercantilism, the opposite of liberal globalization. Ghemawat and his colleagues have created a DHL Global Connectedness Index, which calculates that global connectedness is in decline—partly because of the rise in regionalism noted above."
  • Newsweek Logo
    Excerpt from Newsweek -- "...you need to be open to hearing criticisms of the campaign rather than just evidence in its favor. When companies or brands are launching a new advertising campaign, they often 'try to confirm what they would like to do rather than play devil’s advocate,' Raghubir says."
  • financial news logo feature
    Excerpt from Financial News -- "Deutsche Bank’s strategy of limiting low return balance sheet positions is neither radical nor new. UBS and Morgan Stanley announced long ago their intentions to reduce reliance on capital markets businesses but retain their investment banking franchises. Barclays is constraining its fixed income unit. Credit Suisse has been pruning around the edges of trading businesses, and under new management this summer may cut further. Goldman and JP Morgan Chase have already cut back sufficiently to deliver returns near their cost capital."
  • cnnmoney logo feature
    Excerpt from CNNMoney -- "'The solution can't just be to send more police in the streets or the National Guard. People are desperate. We have to deal with this issue of poverty, of unemployment and economic opportunities,' the New York University economist known as 'Dr. Doom' said."
  • project syndicate logo feature
    Excerpt from Project Syndicate -- "A further slowdown in China is a distinct possibility. China’s leaders must do what it takes to ensure that such a slowdown is not viewed as secular trend – a perception that could undermine the consumption and investment that the economy so badly needs."

    Excerpt from Bloomberg -- "I think that, over the next year and a half, gradually all [oil] prices are going to go higher. By the end of next year, it might be closer to... $70 a barrel for two reasons. One, demand is going to recover, but, more importantly, lower prices imply that high marginal cost producers... are going to produce less, and more importantly, everybody around the world is now reducing capital spending in the oil sector by 30% and over the next few years that reduction in capex spending is going to reduce the increase in supply in the future and therefore is going to affect prices in the future. But we're not going to go back to a world of... $100 per barrel."
  • inc logo feature
    Excerpt from Inc. -- "Says Richard Sylla, a professor of economic and financial history at New York University's Stern School of Business, smaller businesses in such neighborhoods may also be seen as exploitative because they tend to charge higher prices, as they are competing on margin against much larger stores that can afford to charge less. 'A motivation [for looting] is that you are getting even with people who spend their year exploiting you,' Sylla says."
  • usa today logo feature
    Excerpt from USA Today -- "'Humans and other animals tend to glide through life unless they encounter a reason to engage more deeply with the world,' Alter said. 'Harsher weather tends to temporarily dampen your mood, which acts as a signal that everything isn't OK in the world. That makes you more vigilant and potentially hard-working, whereas sunshine can dampen your motivation by signaling that all is right in the world.'"
  • bloomberg view logo
    Excerpt from Bloomberg View -- "Spence realized that there is a lot of information asymmetry in the job market. Employers want employees who are smart, conscientious, hard-working and team-oriented. But they can’t tell most of those things from an interview or two. So prospective employees might prove themselves by getting some credential -- completing some difficult educational program -- to prove they have what it takes. Thus was born the signaling theory of education."
  • quartz logo
    Excerpt from Quartz -- "Encouraging stronger ties to Russia might increase the Russian share in some of these metrics, but the European Union continues to be a more attractive partner for Greece. Athens should be careful; Russia is in no position to replace European support of the Greek economy."
  • The New York Times
    Excerpt from The New York Times -- "'If anything you would have to say this is a muddling through,' said Mr. Smith, who has written about Deutsche Bank’s strategy. Deutsche Bank remains enormously complex and difficult to manage, he said. 'It’s a big bull of a bank,' Mr. Smith said. Mr. Smith pointed out that the name of the reorganization plan, Strategy 2020, means that even if Deutsche Bank meets all its goals, it will still have been 12 years since the beginning of the financial crisis 'before they get to some kind of equilibrium.'"
  • The Washington Post
    Excerpt from The Washington Post -- "'Even for the most successful multinationals, profit margins in international markets are on average lower than margins in the domestic market,' said Robert Salomon, a professor of international management at the NYU Stern School of Business. 'It’s the liability of foreign markets. By virtue of the fact that you are foreign, you are at a disadvantage.'"

    Excerpt from The New York Post -- "David Yermack, a New York University business professor who specializes in corporate governance, said family feuds in boardrooms don’t readily resolve themselves. 'You need stability in the founding family or the company is likely to face all kinds of disruption,' he said. 'It often hurts productivity in that management gets caught in the middle after implicitly being asked to choose sides.'"

    Excerpt from Bloomberg -- "The problem is that the Europeans, at the time that they had a chance to make a deal with the previous coalition government... When they had the chance, they didn't really do it... and then the extreme left gets elected and now it's very hard to make a deal. Greece has a good chance of going to bankruptcy, to actually not able to pay its loans in the near future, the next few weeks."
  • The Washington Post
    Excerpt from The Washington Post -- "Although the government has registered only about 3,400 factories, Sarah Labowitz, director of the Center for Business and Human Rights at New York University, has estimated that there are closer to 6,000 -- many of them smaller buildings that subcontract with the larger companies when big orders come in. 'It’s really about the invisible factories,' Labowitz says. 'There’s a network of thousands of factories that don’t maintain direct relationships with buyers. Nobody knows how many there are.'"

    Excerpt from TIME -- "Even for those migrants who safely reach European shores, their troubles are far from over. The EU requires that asylum petitions be processed by the country in which migrants first arrive. As a result, southern countries such as Malta, Italy and Greece have found themselves overwhelmed by the sheer numbers of incoming migrants, while richer northern countries receive relatively few."
