    Excerpt from PBS NewsHour -- "There’s no clear way of predicting that people are going to lose their jobs in the long run. There’s definitely going to be a shift, in the same way that a century ago, like, 25, 30 percent of the United States worked in agriculture. Today, it’s less than 1 percent."

    Excerpt from The New York Times -- "A handful of academic researchers have studied what goes on inside our heads when credit cards are in our wallets, and even people who do not carry a balance each month are prone to overspending for a variety of reasons. ... A study in 2008, titled 'Monopoly Money,' featured a gift card denominated in dollars. Even though the gift card lost value instantly when people used it, people were still more likely to spend freely with it than they did with cash."

    Excerpt from Financial Times -- "It is also possible that productivity growth might be only temporarily low in rich countries, a view expressed by professor Paul Romer of the Stern School of Business at New York University. He said it was 'possible we’re really missing a huge opportunity by not being more aggressive on the demand side right now', and called for a more aggressive monetary stimulus."

    Excerpt from Marketplace -- "[Icahn is] a 78-year-old man worth $23 billion, whose favorite sport seems to be arguing with CEOs. 'Activism in general draws a person who does not shy away from the limelight or shy away from a fight,' says Scott Galloway, professor of marketing at NYU's Stern School of Business."

    Excerpt from Bloomberg -- "Fund managers need to take into account changes in the composition and behavior of fellow investors, said Aswath Damodaran, who focuses on equity valuation as a professor of finance at New York University’s Stern School of Business. 'These retirement funds have longer time horizons and preferences for larger dividend paying stocks than the rest of the market,' he said in an e-mailed response to questions. 'The old metrics, applied lazily and as rules of thumb, will yield the conclusion that these stocks are over-priced. If you believe that the fund flows have changed, you have to find a way to bring it into your analysis.'"

    Excerpt from The Telegraph -- "In a separate IMF panel discussion on Wednesday with NYU professor Paul Romer and Ernesto Zedillo, the former president of Mexico, Mr Spence said it was imperative that governments overhauled labour laws to tip the balance back in favour of younger workers, who had paid a 'dreadful price' in the aftermath of the crisis."

    Excerpt from Fast Co.Design -- "'If comprehending human communication consisted merely of translating sentences and syntax into thoughts and ideas, there would be no room for misunderstanding,' Kruger and company write. 'But it does not, and so there is... Email recipients only identified seriousness or sarcasm 56% of the time--not much better than chance.'"

    Excerpt from Forbes -- "How much of a price premium will consumers be willing to pay for the benefits, or will the customization be viewed as a competitive tactic to increase new customer acquisitions and brand loyalty, without a price premium? In the latter case, there is a calculable marketing replacement value to customization."

    Excerpt from Treasury & Risk -- "'The amount of data that’s being generated just doubles every year,' said Vasant Dhar, a professor and head of the information systems group at NYU’s Stern School and co-director of Stern’s Center for Business Analytics. 'In the old days, data was something that was collected painfully and there wasn’t too much of it. Now we’re in an age where everything is recorded almost as a by-product of how we function. The fact there’s so much that’s out there and available opens up a whole new world of possibilities and risks,' he added. 'This is the new math; it’s a new way of functioning and thinking about the world.'"

    Excerpt from Fortune -- "Western companies benefit from a globalized marketplace backstopped by universal values that allows them to improve supply chains and reach new customers. They are engineered to compete with other corporations, not governments. Clashing states will force many companies to make painful choices about how they do business—and where."

    October 8, 2014
    marketplace radio logo feature
    Excerpt from Marketplace -- "When [Damodaran] looks at the biggest companies buying back the most stock—companies like Microsoft, Hewlett Packard, IBM—he sees a pattern. 'I mean you look at that list,' he says, 'and every single one of them, you look at the last decade, have a history of destroying value— of investing in things where they have nothing to show for it 5 years out, 10 years out.  I look at that list, and I say: Thank God for buybacks.'"

    Excerpt from CNBC -- "'It's like water,' said Marti G. Subrahmanyam, professor at NYU's Stern School of Business, said. 'So long the floodgates have been kept closed and water could not flow from China to Hong Kong. They are slightly opening the floodgates.'"
  • The New York Times
    Excerpt from The New York Times -- "'They are concentrated in the hardest part of the business,' said Roy C. Smith, a former partner at Goldman who is now a historian of the financial industry at New York University. 'In terms of the modern life of the place, this is the most difficult ordeal to manage its way through that the firm has ever faced.'"
  • bloomberg logo feature
    Excerpt from Bloomberg -- "Critics such as Roy Smith, a professor at New York University’s Stern School of Business, say prosecutors were driven by 'political fever' to extract massive penalties from Wall Street. 'They have to deliver something, so they come up with this,” said Smith, a former Goldman Sachs Group Inc. (GS) partner. 'The fact that it’s unfair never really gets considered. The banks have no choice but to hunker down and accept it.'"
  • bloomberg logo feature
    Excerpt from Bloomberg -- "The best thing about the American economy is that it is structurally flexible, so the private sector is actually adjusting pretty fast. But we need very heavy investment infrastructure, education, skills, and other things to try to bring the lower half of distribution up."
  • wall street journal logo feature
    Excerpt from The Wall Street Journal -- "Iconic, charismatic leaders can excite investors, and boost innovation during their tenures. But the 'great man' approach can lead to stymied growth or worse, once the guy heads for the door, said Karen Brenner a professor at New York University Stern School of Business. 'You never want to let it get to a point that the company’s leader is seen as its core operational strength,' Prof. Brenner said."

    Excerpt from Fox News -- "Alvin Lieberman, a marketing professor at NYU and director of the school’s entertainment, media, and technology program, sees fierce competition for The Players’ Tribune. 'Jeter has to fight among the 200-plus cable channels and the many thousands of social networks,' he told FoxNews.com. 'Will he make an impression? Yes. The question is, how long will it last?'"
  • new york times logo feature
    Excerpt from The New York Times -- "Indeed, scholars find that some of the most elemental differences between liberals and conservatives occur on the moral plane. In his now famous research, New York University’s Jonathan Haidt interviewed hundreds of people and surveyed tens of thousands more about their moral biases. He told outlandish stories (one involved a family eating its dog) and gauged his subjects’ immediate moral reactions. The differences were stark."
  • new york post logo feature
    Excerpt from the New York Post -- "'It was a pretty good report,' said Joseph Foudy, a business professor at New York University. 'The fact that job growth was in a range of sectors tells you it’s not just a one- or two-industry story.'"
  • politico logo feature
    Excerpt from Politico -- "An Internet roundtable was held focusing on the economics of the issue, and Chairman Tom Wheeler put forth an interesting question: 'Is there difference between prioritization and paid prioritization? Does the exchange for value change the economics?' he inquired in front of a panel of economists. It’s unclear if they got to the bottom of it, but Nicholas Economides, an NYU professor and executive director of the NET Institute, gave this answer: The ISPs have to prioritize their networks to run smoothly, he explained. 'The payment is the crucial thing because the payment can create disincentives that I think are perverse from the point of view of the public interest, but they are perfectly natural from the business point of view. From the business point of view, it makes perfect sense to create artificial scarcity and make more money.'"

    Excerpt from MyFoxNY -- "There's a lot of good that's come out of the 1999-2000 dot com bust. Ecommerce is what it is today because of what we have learned from the mistakes in the past. There is collateral damage. Sure, investors lost, but society benefited."

  • bloomberg logo feature
    Excerpt from Bloomberg -- "Yesterday’s gap was $9.23 billion, according to data compiled by Bloomberg. The shortfall reflects an estimate by Damodaran, the author of four books on company valuation, that Yahoo has $8.02 billion in cash. The discount is a sign of 'investor concerns, merited or not, that Yahoo’s management might do something senseless with the cash,' he wrote two days ago in a posting on his Musings on Markets blog."
  • greek reporter logo
    Excerpt from Greek Reporter -- "The strategy that leads Greece quickly and with certainty to growth and reduction of unemployment is simple. Greece borrows €5bil per year issuing new bonds and uses all the moneys in public investments. Greece does not put a single euro from these moneys in the general budget, and the money is not wasted to 'pay' the IMF, which would send inspectors to Greece even if it extends no further loans. With some attention and care, Greece can reach a 3-5% growth in 2015 and higher in 2016. And by the end of 2016, this growth would result in 600,000 new work positions."

    Excerpt from PBS NewsHour -- "Occupy Central has now become Occupy Hong Kong. As of tomorrow it’s likely to become Occupy larger than that. And if the — if local police, through threat and selective arrests, are unable to disperse these demonstrations, we’re likely to see a very significant violent crackdown."
