    Excerpt from PCMA Convene Magazine -- "'If you’re motivated to grow, you also have to be motivated to lead innovation, because it’s not just another transient management fad,' Williams told Convene in a recent interview.

    Excerpt from The Washington Post -- "Alter found that those who did set finite rules for their technology use — like never using it at the dinner table or putting it on airplane mode when you’re out on the weekends (so you can access the camera but not the Internet) — were able to enjoy life more. 'Life becomes more colorful, richer, you have better conversations, you connect with the person who is there with you,' he said."

  • knowledge at wharton logo feature
    Excerpt from Knowledge@Wharton -- "It sounds so simple. It sounds like all we have to do is just say, 'No, I’m not going to use this. I’m going to put it away for a certain number of hours.' That’s obviously the first thing to try to do. The other thing you can do on smartphones is sort of de-fang them. You can make them a little less potent. Take off all the sounds that tell you that there’s a new email. Remove push notifications. Make sure that the phone isn’t telling you when to pick it up, that you’re deciding it’s time for me to pick it up."

    Excerpt from Factor Daily -- "...this theory, proposed by psychologists Nira Lieberman and Yaacov Trope, suggests that this construal level is a function of another concept called psychological distance. ...research by Adam Alter and Daniel Oppenheimer has shown that using hard-to-read fonts in a message or advertising can manipulate the mind into a higher construal level, while easy-to-read fonts can lead to lower construal levels."

'The original intent was to establish an incentive for immigrants to invest in areas that can’t otherwise attract conventional capital,' Friedland said. 'Instead, virtually all projects qualify. It’s merely serving to enhance the returns for those developers.'"

  • bloomberg logo feat
    Excerpt from Bloomberg -- "Bottom line is, Twitter could've done more with Twitter, right? They have two aces up their sleeve. One is live streaming; one is video. We know in this quarter, live streaming did remarkably well. But it's also true that they could've done a lot better. One of the reasons they're not doing that well is many key influencers are actually leaving Twitter and moving into Instagram, and especially with entertainment, sports and music, which were actually the 3 strengths in live streaming. So it's bit of a pull and a push."
  • reuters logo feature
    Excerpt from Thomson Reuters -- "If we lower corporate tax rates, corporations will have more cash available to then invest, which will also boost the economy. And this one time reduction in the repatriation tax will encourage companies to bring cash back from overseas and invest that cash here in the US. So all of those will be growth enhancing. But then you have to balance that with, will those growth enhancements generate enough revenue to offset the tax reductions that are potentially put in place? And we seem to know from past history that that does not tend to be the case. So even though the economy, the private side of the economy will probably grow as a consequence of these tax reductions, it will still have the effect of increasing the deficit and increasing the debt on net."

    Excerpt from the Washington Center for Equitable Growth -- "A new paper by New York University Stern School of Business economists Holger M. Mueller and Constantine Yannelis explores this labor-market dimension. The two researchers examine administrative data on individual borrowers’ student loans linked to deidentified tax records and zip-code level data on home prices drawn from online real estate company Zillow Group, Inc."
  • bloomberg view logo
    Excerpt from Bloomberg View -- "A second study, by John Horton of New York University’s Stern School of Business, is also being cited by both sides of the debate. Horton did an experiment with an online labor market, assigning different employers different minimum wages. The companies that were forced to pay higher wages hired about the same number of workers, but for fewer hours. However, the workers they hired tended to be more productive ones, so overall they got about the same amount of work done."

  • inc logo feature
    Excerpt from Inc. -- "'There's no reason that New York and L.A. should have the same winner in the pet care business,' says Arun Sundararajan, a professor at NYU's Stern School of Business and author of The Sharing Economy. 'When you enter an industry first--whatever the industry is--you have a bit of an advantage. Someone who starts a new pet care business would face more barriers to growth than Rover did when it started out, because there's already a large competitor in the fray. But the game is certainly not over.'"

    Excerpt from Recode -- "...commuters in crowded subway trains are about twice as likely to respond to a mobile offer by making a purchase vis-à-vis those in non-crowded trains. The response rate across the entire sample was five times higher than the average response rate of mobile coupons and twice the response rate for location-based mobile coupons."'
  • AdExchanger logo 192 x 144
    Excerpt from AdExchanger -- "A lot of my book talks about the conundrum of consumers getting overwhelmed with ads and offers. The reason is that, as astonishing as it may sound, companies today still don’t have enough data about our preferences. The data exists, but it exists in silos. Someone has to come and stitch the consumer profile together. In the absence of that, brands send us an overwhelming amount of ads because they don’t have enough information about my preferences."

    Excerpt from The Washington Post -- "'The U.S. tax code is filled with all kinds of ornaments' that help the oil and gas industry, said Damodaran. A decades-old depletion allowance, for example, allows companies to deduct money as a natural resource is produced and sold. This comes on top of other deductions for various expenses."
