    Excerpt from Thomson Reuters Accelus -- "'In the end, one has to evaluate the CHOICE Act by asking whether the future of the financial system would be safe and more stable under it or with Dodd-Frank -- even in its current form,' said Professor Kermit Schoenholtz, one of the editors. 'We think the CHOICE Act would increase the riskiness of our financial system.'"

    Excerpt from Marketplace -- "I think that this will hit Uber drivers hard, because as you know if you've been in an Uber in London, New York or LA, significant fractions of these drivers are recent immigrants, who may be challenged by an English-language writing test ... In many ways this is one of the professions where a complete absence of communication between the service provider and the service receiver is theoretically possible."

    Excerpt from Seeking Alpha -- "Even the S&P 500, which is weighted by market value and is not rebalanced, undergoes 20 to 25 changes in an average year as companies are added to and removed from the index, according to a study by Jeffrey Wurgler, a professor at NYU Stern School of Business."

    Excerpt from Bloomberg -- "We are seeing wage inflation begin to pick up. We're seeing actual inflation rise a bit. I think that's why the Fed is going to be tightening because they're now confident that inflation will rise to their target."

    Excerpt from CNNMoney -- "Trump has already argued that Dodd-Frank is holding back the American economy, even though data show that business lending and bank profits have never been higher. 'You can't get deregulation done unless you've got people in place. You can't just wipe regulations off the books. You need to do that in a formal fashion,' said NYU Stern professor Lawrence White."

    Excerpt from NPR -- "'Ten years ago, before the iPad and iPhone were mainstream, the average person had an attention span of about 12 seconds,' Alter tells Fresh Air's Dave Davies. Now, he says, 'research suggests that there's been a drop from 12 to eight seconds ... shorter than the attention of the average goldfish, which is nine seconds.'"

    Excerpt from Bloomberg -- "The jobs that are lost to automation aren't coming back. I think seven out of eight jobs that we lost in manufacturing over the last 15 years were lost to automation, and maybe one was lost to China out of eight. It's a pretty significant force to contend with. The model of making a living in the future is going to be capital ownership. You own your own tiny business that you use to generate revenue, perhaps using some AI technology."

    Excerpt from Reuters -- "Roy Smith, professor of finance at New York University's Stern School of Business, and a former partner at Goldman Sachs, notes the new environment may require greater independence for those guarding large institutions. 'Maybe we need to make these guys a little bit more independent, particularly if they are challenging more than market risk,' says Smith."

    Excerpt from TODAY.com -- "There will be certain high-end niches, but for the most part, and also it becomes a complicated conversation because there is an American manufacturing index - what car is the most manufactured car in the US? And the winner? The Toyota Camry. So what it means to be made in America is now taking on new meaning."

    Excerpt from the Financial Times -- "Browsing Twitter this week, I came across an interview with Adam Alter, a New York University social psychologist. His book, Irresistible, details the addictive qualities of smartphones, social networks and other digital technologies. And while I once may have read the fleeting tweet and forgotten about it, instead I clicked a button on my web browser to save the story for later."
  • new york times logo feature
    Excerpt from The New York Times -- "Used within reasonable limits, of course, these devices also offer us new graces. But we are not using them within reasonable limits. They are the masters; we are not. They are built to addict us, as the social psychologist Adam Alter’s new book 'Irresistible' points out — and to madden us, distract us, arouse us and deceive us."

    Excerpt from The New York Times -- "'When something becomes a religion, we don’t choose the actions that are most likely to solve the problem,' said Haidt, the author of the 2012 best seller 'The Righteous Mind' and a professor at New York University. 'We do the things that are the most ritually satisfying.'"
  • clear admit logo feature
    Excerpt from Clear Admit -- "While we are all of course told that our networks will probably be one of the most valuable things we take away from the MBA experience, I think I underestimated just how much I would come to rely on mine. My peers here have proven to be my great asset; they provide encouragement, advice, introductions, and go above and beyond to do so. It is because of all the people and resources that make up my tremendous Stern support system that I feel confident I will be successful in pursuing my career path, as 'unstructured' as it may be."

    Excerpt from The Wall Street Journal -- "Mr. Brenner, a professor at New York University’s Stern School of Business who helped develop the first volatility index, now is focused on what he believes will be an actionable gauge of the kind of fear now pervading the markets. 'The VIX is low because it doesn’t measure ambiguity. The uncertainty is much bigger than that,' Mr. Brenner said. 'I believe that’s what ambiguity is going to capture.'"
  • Linkedin logo
    Excerpt from LinkedIn -- "We are still less than a decade from the darkest economic times in our recent history. The national debt is at or about 100% of GDP, the Fed has a balance sheet that is more than five times its pre-crisis size, and inflation just finally ticked up to where we like to see it. The political attacks that surround the Fed are not new to central banking but the economy is still on recovering ground, and not in a place where we can afford to make any mistakes."

He founded SCT Capital Management, a hedge fund based on predictive models in 1998 and co-founded Deep Blue Analytics, a consulting company that applies data analysis to commercial problems in 2012."
  • business insider logo feature
    Excerpt from Business Insider -- "This overestimation is called the Dunning-Kruger effect. It is the cognitive bias that makes less competent people overestimate their own skills while underestimating the competence of others. The term was coined in 1999 in the publication of David Dunning and Justin Kruger. The psychologists had noticed in prior studies that in areas like reading comprehension, playing chess or driving a car, ignorance leads to confidence more often than knowledge does."

  • Regulating Wall Street: CHOICE Act vs. Dodd-Frank
    The NYU Stern School of Business today announced a new book, Regulating Wall Street: CHOICE Act vs. Dodd-Frank, authored by more than a dozen faculty members from NYU Stern and the NYU School of Law. With the change in power in Washington D.C., both Congress and the Administration seek to repeal parts of the Dodd-Frank Act of 2010, streamline regulation and reduce compliance costs. In their analysis, the authors address the prominent issues of financial regulation and examine the benefits and drawbacks of the CHOICE Act—the prominent proposal to reform financial regulation—while comparing it to Dodd-Frank.

    Excerpt from Law360 -- "Earlier in the day, the petitioning investors called New York University professor Anindya Ghose to testify as an expert in online and mobile advertising. Ghose said that AOL had grown to become much more than an Internet service provider and had made in-roads into the digital marketplace. 'It was much more that a dial-up company,' Ghose said of AOL at the time of the Verizon deal. 'It was a global media tech company.'"

    Excerpt from AFP -- "Scott Galloway, who teaches brand strategy and digital marketing at New York University's Stern School of Business, said Uber has little room for further error after these missteps. Galloway, who also founded business intelligence firm L2, said the news about Uber over the past month has been 'very damaging' but may be surmountable."
  • bloomberg logo feat
    Excerpt from Bloomberg -- "Any campus is a really interesting social environment where there are multiple moralities, multiple communities competing with each other and drawing recruits. And what we're seeing in the last few years... is the rise of a particular sub-group that is extremely passionate morally about equality, about fighting racism, and that's all great. But they've adopted a way that is kind of vindictive, that is all about calling people out. So people are afraid of them."
