    Excerpt from The Huffington Post -- "You wouldn't know it from the record low level of government bond yields, but much of Europe lives under a severe debt burden. Nonfinancial corporate debt exceeds 100 percent of GDP in Belgium, Finland, France, Ireland, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Portugal, and Spain. And, gross government debt (as measured by Eurostat) is close to or exceeds this threshold in Belgium, France, Greece, Ireland, Italy, Portugal and Spain."

    Excerpt from Ozy -- "Most professions worth their salt require certification, reasons NYU Stern Business School professor of management Anat Lechner. Yet people in management, who 'control, very often, many resources — and can influence pretty much everybody in society, directly and indirectly — don't.' She adds, as we all know too well, that 'one bad manager can ruin the lives of pretty much everybody underneath them.'"

    Excerpt from USA Today -- "April Klein, a professor of accounting at New York University’s Stern School of Business, said the money spent to keep Peltz off the board will benefit the company in the long run because it forced DuPont to review strategies to increase its stock price. She noted the proxy campaign’s $15 million cost is only a small percentage of DuPont’s $66.7 billion capitalization."

    Excerpt from The New York Times -- "Research from Thomas Philippon of New York University suggests the United States financial industry has become less efficient over the last 130 years at channeling capital toward productive use. And this same phenomenon may be a major contributor to rising inequality."
  • washington post logo feature
    Excerpt from The Washington Post -- "These divergent perspectives on the Pew survey are connected to larger narratives that frame how conservative and liberal Christians in the United States see themselves. In 'The Righteous Mind,' Jonathan Haidt describes the different 'stories' that arise, depending on whether you lean to the left or right politically. Though he has written primarily about 'liberals' and 'conservatives' from a political standpoint, I find his analysis easily applies to 'liberals' and 'conservatives' within Christianity also."
  • wall street journal logo feature
    Excerpt from The Wall Street Journal -- "There are several approaches to estimating where it stands at any given time, including surveying investors and looking at the historic relationship between stock and Treasury returns. An alternative method involves using expected future cash flows from stocks, as Stern School of Business professor Aswath Damodaran has done in the model he has made available on his website. According to this, the S&P 500’s equity-risk premium as of the end of April was 5.8 percentage points, which counts as one of the higher readings in data going back to 1960. On that basis, it seems like there is a sizable cushion between still very low yields on Treasurys and the stock market’s expected returns. In other words, stocks don’t look so expensive on this basis."

    Excerpt from Forbes -- "Sundararajan described the self-regulating trend of sharing economy companies. An advocate of self regulation, he’s clear to note he is not opposed to regulation generally, though it should be applied carefully. 'I believe in regulation very strongly because I believe in markets very strongly. And the purpose of regulation is to step in and help markets function better, to fill the gaps, correct them when things are going off the wrong way. So you can’t be anti-regulation if you are pro-market, it’s just a question of being surgical about it.'"
  • new york magazine
    Excerpt from New York Magazine -- "This gut-centric view of political psychology isn’t a new idea — researchers like Jonathan Haidt have been doing fascinating work that argues, at its core, that people don’t weigh evidence and then decide where they stand on an issue. Instead, moral impulses embedded deeply within them — impulses that vary widely across exactly the political divisions you’d expect — stack the deck beforehand. To Haidt and other researchers, the stories we tell ourselves and others about why we believe what we believe are mostly window dressing, forms of ex post facto justification for decisions really made at a baser level."

    Excerpt from Luxury Daily -- "'This is not only about brand synergies, or exposure to a captive audience of ultra wealthy prospects,' she said. 'It is mainly of each brand’s elevated status just based on the fact that they can afford the expenditure required for their presence and events at Cannes."
  • business insider logo feature
    Excerpt from Business Insider -- "My own research on India's openness for the DHL Global Connectedness Index, which I prepare with my IESE business school colleague Steven A. Altman, indicates that India is still a relatively closed country in many aspects. The ratio of India's exports to its GDP has tripled over the past two decades, but across a broader range of indicators, the depth of India's global connectedness still ranks only 119th out of 140 countries."
  • time magazine logo feature
    Excerpt from TIME -- "Arun Sundararajan, an economist who reviewed the report, believes that Airbnb and its data are something of a red herring. While the site may lead to some units being taken off the market and to disturbances among neighbors who don’t like sharing their buildings with tourists, he says the housing options provided by Airbnb are likely drawing more tourists—and more revenue—to the city. The responsibility of Airbnb in yielding the current lack of housing in the city is 'sort of like a rounding error when you compare it to the population growth in San Francisco and the number of units that are rent-controlled.'"

    Excerpt from CNBC -- "Bond investors shouldn't expect a 'rate riot or rate rage' when the Federal Reserve begins to raise interest rates because the central bank has already telegraphed what it is going to do, economist Nouriel Roubini said Tuesday. 'It's not going to be a significant surprise. As the economy recovers, as inflation goes higher, gradually long-term interest rates are going to go higher,' said the co-founder and chairman of Roubini Global Economics, also known as 'Dr. Doom.'"

  • foreign policy logo feature
    Excerpt from Foreign Policy -- "As described in my book, Rebooting Democracy: A Citizen’s Guide to Reinventing Politics, a number of extraordinarily encouraging experiments along these lines have taken place in British Columbia, Oregon, and elsewhere over the last decade. What they all have in common is citizen deliberation: the use of large panels of randomly selected citizens to carefully reflect and decide on complex policy matters, a practice which dates back to ancient Greece. Expanding on this experience could usher in a fundamental change to the nature of government."
  • Boston Review Logo
    Excerpt from Boston Review -- "By redefining exchange in the markets they mediate, today’s platforms will create new efficiencies that diminish some sources of market failure—for example, the uncertain quality of taxicabs and their drivers that necessitated government licensing in the past. At the same time, though, platforms may induce new forms of market failure, such as the denial of market access to a supplier or a consumer. The regulatory framework should allow the government to respond to specific failures, not prescribe intervention across the board."
  • BusinessBecause
    Excerpt from BusinessBecause -- "'Companies now need marketing managers who are comfortable with data analytics,' says Anindya Ghose, professor of marketing at NYU’s Stern School of Business. ... 'Students who understand the digital ecosystem and who have technical skills are much in demand,' says Professor Samuel Craig, director of NYU Stern’s Entertainment, Media and Technology MBA track."
  • quartz logo
    Excerpt from Quartz -- "We buy things that make us somehow feel we are better—more attractive, more powerful—and that show the outside world that we’re good enough, smart enough, and people like us. Scott Galloway, a professor of marketing at NYU’s Stern School of Business, goes a step further, saying the cachet that all vanity capital carries is distinctly libidinous. 'Men want to spread their seed to the four corners of the world,' he says, and women want their choice of mate. Anything that projects prestige or increases our physical attractiveness helps us accomplish those goals."

  • seeking alpha logo feature
    Excerpt from Seeking Alpha -- "The Knowledge Effect was originally discovered by academic researchers, spearheaded by Baruch Lev, who studied 20 years of financial data and discovered an important association between a firm's level of knowledge capital and its subsequent stock returns. Further research advanced the original findings and in 2005 Lev, building on his own earlier research as well as that of others, proved the existence of a market inefficiency traceable to missing information about corporate knowledge investments. This inefficiency has led highly innovative companies to deliver persistently positive abnormal returns in the stock market."

    Excerpt from The Guardian -- "'Although the sudden visibility of the sharing economy over the last five years was induced primarily by digital factors, many sharing behaviours will be sustained over time by ethical and social rather than technological considerations', explains Arun Sundararajan, a professor of information, operations and management sciences at New York University’s Stern School of Business and a leading authority on the sharing economy."
  • daily star logo
    Excerpt from The Daily Star -- "Rana Plaza and other factory disasters in Bangladesh highlight the risks for workers in a system where a significant number of factories operate in the shadows. Yes, the government and brands should inspect their primary, hub suppliers. But acknowledging the role of spoke factories in the current model and developing a plan to conduct oversight of them is one of the major outstanding challenges as we mark the second anniversary of Rana Plaza."
  • msnbc logo feature
    Excerpt from MSNBC -- "On efficiency grounds [a land tax] does make a lot of sense, which is why folks like Milton Friedman were so supportive of the tax. I think, also, we've heard a lot about wealth inequality recently because of Thomas Piketty. An analysis of his data suggests that... what's driving capital to output ratios in a country like the United States is mostly land and housing values. So we've seen this surge in wealth inequality in the United States that's coming mostly from land and housing... the idea of taxing land is appealing for those who want to reduce wealth inequality in the United States."

    Excerpt from Yahoo Finance -- "'The case for having a stronger role of women in the business world is compelling,' Roubini said during a speech at The Next Billion: Women and the Economy of the Future conference. 'Lots of work has been done, but more needs to be done.'"
