    Excerpt from Fast Company -- "'We have not seen a health company that has defined what a platform model looks like for the delivery of health care services nor the acquisition of talent,' says Arun Sundararajan, professor of information, operations, and management sciences at New York University and author of 'The Sharing Economy.' 'Wego is putting its stake in the ground with the latter.'"

    Excerpt from Bloomberg Quint -- "Toward the end of 2016, Snap (formerly known as Snapchat) became the latest social media company to enter the public market. With 161 million engaged users but little in terms of current revenues and big operating losses, Snap fits the bill as a company with lots of potential but plenty of peril. In this post, I tell my story for Snap and the value that emerges from it. It is, for the most part, an optimistic story of a young company that has found a niche in the crowded social media space. In my story, Snap will not and should not try to be the next Facebook but I also see it as avoiding becoming Twitter Redux."

    Excerpt from DNA India -- "Uniqlo is one of the fastest-growing retailers in the industry. The brand, owned by Japan's Fast Retailing, is known for its colorful basics and scientific approach to clothing. In a report for New York University's Stern Center For Business and Human Rights, Sarah Labowitz and Dorothee Baumann-Pauly have clearly mentioned, how Uniqlo fosters relationships with suppliers and how it contributes significantly towards its success. Uniqlo 'calls its suppliers "partners," and goes so far as to place technical experts in supplier facilities to act as trainers and coaches to improve production,' Labowitz and Baumann-Pauly write. This lead to added trust in the relationship, as evidenced by this anecdote."

    Excerpt from the Financial Times -- "Conscious capitalism still sees the firm as the basic economic unit. New York University business professor Arun Sundararajan, by contrast, focuses on the crowd. Crowd-based capitalism, which he outlines in The Sharing Economy, is the 21st-century version of village life, in which people engage in commercial transactions with peers, bolstered by trust generated by intertwined social networks. Digital platforms expand the village to encompass cities; blockchain technologies create trust at scale; individuals support themselves as small-scale entrepreneurs, like craftspeople and merchants of old."
  • the guardian logo feature
    Excerpt from The Guardian -- "Today’s economic model mirrors the banking model. Bankers view loans as opportunities to earn fees for originating, securitising, trading, settling and clearing. They have shifted the risk of holding the loan to others. They boast that accelerating the speed through which securities circulate reduces costs to consumers and is a measure of their immense contribution to the economy which, they argue, must be preserved post-Brexit, at all costs. But when Thomas Philippon added up the fees paid by the non-financial sector to the financial sector, he found that at 2.0% of finance raised, costs had in recent decades returned to where they were in 1880."

    Excerpt from The New York Times -- "'We are in a trust spiral,' said Jonathan Haidt, a social psychologist at New York University. 'My fear is that we have reached escape velocity where the actions of each side can produce such strong reactions on the other that things will continue to escalate.'"
  • poets and quants logo
    Excerpt from Poets & Quants -- "New York University’s Stern School of Business uses a curve, and it’s meant to ensure fairness and clarity of grading, says Rohit Deo, acting dean. The curve creates an environment that challenges students intellectually, Deo says — but it must meet Stern’s academic standards."

    Excerpt from Luxury Daily -- "'As the brand pushes forward, it is prudent to prepare the consumers for what is coming,' said Thomaï Serdari, Ph.D., founder of PIQLuxury, co-editor of Luxury: History Culture Consumption and adjunct professor of luxury marketing at New York University, New York."
  • bloomberg view logo
    Excerpt from Bloomberg View -- "Baumol’s cost disease is a name for the tendency of costs to rise in slow-growth sectors as fast-growth sectors become more productive. As we learn better ways to make things like iPhones and TVs, the economy becomes wealthier. So we’re willing to pay more for services like back massages, string orchestras and university lectures. But because those services require the same amounts of labor as they did before, their costs rise as rich people pay the same workers more and more for the same old service."

    Excerpt from Clear Admit -- "The record fundraising efforts Henry led also helped to almost triple the number of experiential projects Stern students can take part in, propelled a first-of-its-kind FinTech MBA specialization, established the unique Urbanization Project directed by Stern Professor Paul Romer, and paved the way for new centers like the Center for Business and Human Rights and the Center for Sustainable Business, also both firsts for a leading business school. Henry has also worked to both widen and deepen the school’s relationships with tech companies, venture capital firms and fashion and luxury brands."

    Excerpt from The New York Times -- "'It may well be the mayor will be riding a wave rather than generating a wave,' Lawrence J. White, a professor at New York University’s Stern School of Business. 'Doing things around the edges to help probably helps, but it’s going to be hard at the end of the day to know, did it really make a difference?'"
  • crains new york logo feature
    Excerpt from Crain's New York Business -- "'It’s episodic, nomadic,' said C. Samuel Craig, director of the entertainment, media and technology initiative at NYU’s Stern School of Business. 'You come together to make the film and then disappear and then reconfigure to make a different show or a TV commercial or a movie.'"
  • fox news
    Excerpt from Fox 5 NY -- "Well, I think we're in the midst of a pretty dramatic shift in how we learn our living. We're moving away from salaried jobs, jobs that pay us wages, and towards micro-ownership of different kinds, running your own business, driving an Uber."
  • international business times logo feature
    Excerpt from International Business Times -- "So as a consumer, right now, you're used to seeing everything at once and making your choice. You have all the freedom in the world. All the choice in the world. If we kill network neutrality, that freedom goes away. It's up to the telephone and cable companies to give us whatever they want first, and whatever they don't want, last."
  • wallethub logo
    Excerpt from WalletHub -- "Credit card issuers that offer many different varieties of credit cards - such as Capital One - are most likely to offer second chance cards. Also, there are some companies - e.g., Green Dot - that appear to focus more on secured (prepaid) cards, which make sense as second chance products."

    Excerpt from The Huffington Post -- "Labowitz, a co-founder and co-director of New York University’s Stern Center for Business and Human Rights, told The Huffington Post that she has studied many companies facing serious public criticism, often in her field of human rights.

  • Bloomberg Quint logo 192 x 144
    Excerpt from Bloomberg Quint -- "'The big piece of the problem is can you get the bank to sell the assets at the right price to ARCs (asset reconstruction companies) and private investors who want to come in? How to get that right price by using a portfolio or a bad bank approach is going to be key. We are going to be thinking about what kind of design could help with that,' said RBI deputy governor Acharya on Wednesday."

  • wnyc logo feature
    Excerpt from WNYC -- "Steven Blader teaches a course on conflict, collaboration and negotiation at New York University’s Stern business school, and he uses Trump as an example in his class. Blader said Trump puts people on the defensive. In a negotiation, that can cause both parties to miss the best possible outcome. 'His mindset that good negotiations are about being domineering and aggressive is counter to exactly what we know to be the case when it comes to negotiation, where you’re far better off mixing collaboration and competition together,' Blader said."
  • Mashable Logo
    Excerpt from Mashable -- "'When you were buying this stock, you knew you were basically ceding all control to Mark Zuckerberg,' said Robert Salomon, associate professor of management and operations at New York University's Stern school of business.

    Excerpt from the Stamford Advocate -- "'What’s happening is you have a government working with management and figuring out how to skinny the bank down,' said Charles Murphy, a professor of management practice in New York University’s Stern School of Business. 'They’ve gotten out of a lot of businesses and changed management. From the outside, it looks like it’s converting back to a more traditional British bank, as opposed to a global banking "thought process."'"
  • bloomberg view logo
    Excerpt from Bloomberg View -- "One popular worry about modern financial capitalism is that companies are investing less in their future growth than they should be, because rapacious shareholders are demanding that they spend their money on stock buybacks instead. Here's a new working paper from Germán Gutiérrez and Thomas Philippon finding more or less that."
