    Excerpt from The New York Times -- "Adam Alter, a professor of marketing and psychology at New York University who studies digital addiction, highlighted the fact that, unlike TV shows or concerts, today’s video games don’t end. Most forms of entertainment have some form of a stopping cue — signals that remind you that a certain act or episode is ending, like a commercial or a timer. 'Many video games don’t have them,' Mr. Alter said. 'They’re built to be endless or have long-range goals that we don’t like to abandon.'"

    Excerpt from the Washington Post -- "The idea of a 'red-team blue-team' exercise stems in part from a Wall Street Journal commentary by New York University professor Steven Koonin. E&E News on Friday reported that Pruitt intended to formalize the 'red team, blue team' effort to challenge mainstream climate science."

    Excerpt from Korea Times -- "Low interest rates may make mortgage debts attractive and can fuel a housing boom. Conversely, high housing prices require ever larger mortgage balances, even if the ratio of loan to property value stays constant. So growth in property prices and mortgage debt go hand in hand."
  • bloomberg view logo
    Excerpt from Bloomberg View -- "Prior to these news stories, Uber was a rule-breaking company with a business model that delivered revenue growth but offered a very narrow path to profitability. After these news stories, the story remains the same but Uber has just made its narrow path even narrower and much rests on who will head the company on this path."

    Excerpt from the San Francisco Chronicle -- "Today, the market is much different, Sundararajan said: 'The excitement around the on-demand economy, coupled with the fact that everyone can be a delivery person because everyone has a smartphone,' changes the economics."
  • Digital Trends logo 192 x 144
    Excerpt from Digital Trends -- "Sure, taking pictures captures the visual details of our memories, but a new study suggests pressing that shutter button improves visual memory. The problem? The improved visual recall is at the expense of auditory memories. The data comes from a new study led by New York University Stern School of Business professor Alixandra Barasch and recently published in Physiological Science."

    Excerpt from Racked-- "Back in April, NYU professor and business intelligence firm L2 founder Scott Galloway told Racked that 'no one looks at Amazon and thinks that it’s a great partner. It’s considered the evil empire.'"
  • le monde logo
    Excerpt from Le Monde -- "Due to the high level of concentration in the United States in the early 2000s, US companies are dominant in their sectors. They are no longer challenged by competition, and therefore have no reason to invest as much as in the past. In other words, in the United States, the concentration of companies penalizes investment."

    Excerpt from Canadian Underwriter -- "'Disruptive innovation is affecting companies of all sizes – reframing opportunities and risk,' Anat Lechner, clinical professor of management and organizations at New York University Stern School of Business, says in the company statement."
  • racked logo
    Excerpt from Racked -- “The bottom line, though, is that guys will always need to buy deodorant. Meyvis questions whether consumers even seriously bought into Axe’s former branding. 'I think that people were buying Axe in the past more because it was a cool brand for young men rather than they really thought "I will become the chick magnet from the advertisement,"' he says. 'If that were the case, of course this would be a bad decision to do this campaign. But the world changes, and what is cool for young men changes, too. To that extent, it may not be as radical a departure from the past positioning: "We’re the cool brand for young men, whatever is happening in the world today."'"

    Excerpt from Bloomberg -- "Miami has the smallest Airbnb-to-hotel price advantage among U.S. cities in the data tallied by Bloomberg. Changes in regulations may contribute to this, according to Arun Sundararajan, a professor at New York University's Leonard N. Stern School of Business and author of The Sharing Economy. The home and apartment-rental company reached an agreement with the local government in March to collect resort taxes on behalf of hosts in Miami-Dade County."

    Excerpt from Luxury Daily -- "'G-Dragon is the most influential cultural icon in Asia today,’ 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. ‘His music and fashion style have contributed to an unprecedented increase in followers who also happen to cross two generations: millennials and Generation Z,’ she said. ‘These are young adults who have developed a taste for luxury early in life, have disposable income, primarily due to their families, and have also traveled abroad.’”

  • Credit.com logo
    Excerpt from Credit.com -- "Research from NYU professor Priya Raghubir and University of Maryland professor Joydeep Srivastava shows that using physical cash makes people less likely to overspend because they “feel the outflow of money” more directly. Spending too much on a credit card can also lead to high interest charges if you don’t pay the balance in time."
  • accepted logo feature
    Excerpt from Accepted.com -- "We launched two new, focused MBA programs. We explored the idea of separate applications, and decided on having one application for all of the programs – so you can apply to up to four MBA programs with one application: the full-time MBA, part-time MBA, and our two new specialized, full-time, 12-month programs. You indicate a primary program of interest and explain why it’s your primary, and then identify your alternates."

    In a new study, Professor Alixandra Barasch of the NYU Stern School of Business and co-authors, Kristin Diehl of the University of Southern California Marshall School of Business, Jackie Silverman of The Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania and Gal Zauberman at Yale School of Management, find that choosing to take photos may help us remember the visual details of that experience, but at the expense of our nonvisual memory.

    Excerpt from The Economist -- "The school has responded to this interest by launching a tech-focused one-year MBA programme to cater to the need of employers in 'Silicon Alley', the New York technology hub that the school’s dean, Peter Henry, can see from his office window. 'We have to figure out a way to be as important to the new economy as we have been to Wall Street for the past 50 years,' he explains."

  • yahoo finance logo feature
    Excerpt from Yahoo Finance -- "Speaking about the Z-score, if you compare the average Z-score of companies in 2007 with the average in 2016, which is the last time we looked at it, guess what. The average is actually lower today than it was in 2007, and 2007 was right before the great financial crisis, and of course, in ’08 and ’09 we saw a tremendous increase in corporate bond defaults and loans."
  • financial times logo feature
    Excerpt from the Financial Times -- "In Tectonic Shifts in Financial Markets, Henry Kaufman offers a scorching account of how Wall Street got into this mess, how it failed to get out, and what to do now. Coming from a pivotal figure in modern finance, now in his 90th year, it will command attention. Kaufman was at high school with Alan Greenspan; at the New York Federal Reserve with Paul Volcker; running research at Salomon Brothers as it created the US mortgage market and dominated bond trading; and on the board of Lehman Brothers in the years before disaster hit."
  • business insider logo feature
    Excerpt from Business Insider -- "'A culture of overwork is damaging because it turns brief binges of hard work into a long-term strategy, and, worse still, an expectation. When managers start measuring the worth of their employees according to how quickly they return emails at 3 a.m., that particular work culture is broken,' Adam Alter, a professor at NYU’s Stern School of Business, told Business Insider in an email."
  • bloomberg view logo
    Excerpt from Bloomberg View -- "New York University finance professor Jeffrey Wurgler didn't take things quite that far in a 2011 essay, but he did warn that 'the increasing popularity of index-linked investing may well be reducing its ability to deliver its advertised benefits while at the same time increasing its broader economic costs.'"
  • PFSK logo 192 x 144
    Excerpt from PFSK -- "Think about AI as the next layer of technology that will be integrated into everything we do and much of the technology we use, and that includes mixed reality interfaces and devices. Simply put, AI is a branch of computer science in which computers are programmed to do things that normally require human intelligence. This includes learning, reasoning, problem-solving, understanding language, and perceiving a situation or environment. AI is an extremely large, broad field that uses its own computer languages and even special kids of computer networks, which are modeled on our human brains."
  • quartz logo
    Excerpt from Quartz -- "...in our study, we found that having digital photos was not as effective as physical photos. In fact, the ease of instantaneously sharing digital photos may inhibit how often we talk about our experiences. Back in the old days, we’d wait until we finished a roll of film and then bring it to the store to get printed. So waiting for the pictures kept the experience top of mind. Then, we’d take the pictures around to our friends one by one (or group by group) and get to share our experience over and over again. Now, we simply post it on social media once and we’re done."
  • financial times logo feature
    Excerpt from the Financial Times -- "'There is no clear pathway I can see for Uber to go from a high-revenue growth company to a profitable company,' says Aswath Damodaran, a professor of finance at the Stern School of Business. 'Normally the story for start-ups is that as revenues grow economies of scale will kick in, but that story is tough to tell with Uber.'"
