    Excerpt from the Financial Times -- "According to Scott Galloway, marketing professor at New York University, in the Trump era 'being perceived as a female-friendly firm is just smart'. There is currency for companies in being, or at least appearing, socially conscious, he says, arguing that this has shielded the 'big four' technology groups — Google, Amazon, Facebook and Apple — from scrutiny in Washington."

    Excerpt from CNBC -- "'Dodd-Frank is just overly complex and burdensome. For the purpose of making the financial system safer, you can do a lot more of that with less complex and less burdensome regulation,' said Kim Schoenholtz, director of the Center for Global Economy and Business at NYU's Stern School of Business."

    Excerpt from The New York Times -- "There are so many things going on. But one of the most dangerous is this new culture of safety-ism. The most important psychological truth I think we all need to know for raising kids or educating students is anti-fragility."

    Excerpt from Spiceworks -- "If we go to a system without net neutrality, consumers lose the ability to make those choices. Instead, telecom and cable companies such as AT&T and Verizon are going to make those choices for consumers. The choices are going to be made by the telecom and cable companies, and not by the consumers."

    Excerpt from Bloomberg -- "Philipp Schnabl, an economist at New York University, agrees with Brunnermeier that Europe and Japan are the places where ultra-low interest rates may be problematic. 'To emphasize, this is an unusual period we’re coming out of,' he says. 'There’s a lot of uncertainty in anything we say about monetary policy.'"

    Excerpt from MarketWatch -- "For instance, Ghose’s research has found that shoppers are more susceptible to pitches from retailers during their commutes, that groups of three people are easier to target than twos or fours, that good and bad weather can be powerful motivators, and that the key to understanding customers is tracking their habits. 'We think we are all very spontaneous, when in fact we are very predictable,' Ghose said."

    Excerpt from Psychology Today -- "No, research has found that firing a CEO is the last thing a board should do. Instead, they should hit them where it hurts, in the pocket. Instead, the board of British Airways should draw on insights from our recent study from behavioral science by keeping the executives but asking them to deposit part of their salary and bonus for paying for the losses—that is, BA’s estimated £150 million compensation bill. (Study authors include Chengwei Liu, Ivo Vlaev, Christina Fang, Jerker Denrell and Nick Chater.)"

    Excerpt from Poets & Quants -- "Whelan says where climate work is concerned, MBAs today face an unprecedented landscape in which the corporate sector is married with the work of state-level and municipal government. 'For MBAs, it’s about understanding what this means and understanding where the rest of the governments are going and then figuring out how, as a corporate sector with states and municipalities, we can try to claw back some of our reputation so that we can have better relationships with companies and governments overseas,' she says."

    Excerpt from CBS News -- "New York University economist Petra Moser says immigrant entrepreneurs have a long history in the United States. 'Go back as far as Andrew Carnegie, who came from Scotland and then built a very, very large industrial, you might even call it an industrial empire and created many, many jobs,' Moser said."

    Excerpt from Business Insider -- "Over the past 20 years, freelancing is up 27 percent compared to payroll employment (think more 1099s and fewer W-2s). By 2020, it’s expected that over 40 percent of the workforce will be freelancers. The shift is due in large part to the rise of digital platforms like Etsy, TaskRabbit, and Upwork."

    Excerpt from Investors Chronicle -- "They found that US institutional investors did not trade on the anomaly often enough to arbitrage it away (i.e., drive prices up or down so much that prospective risk-free gains vanished). Two connected reasons lay behind this. First, the anomaly tended to dwell in illiquid stocks that were too small for institutions to bother with. Second, such stocks were clearly risky so investing in them might fall foul of so-called ‘prudent-man rules’, which required intermediaries to invest other people’s money as if it were their own."

    Excerpt from TheStreet.com -- "And although June 2009 technically marked the Great Recession's end, only some believed at the time that the 2007-09 global financial crisis was actually coming to a close. Part of the reason for that was that generally speaking, there's a sharp economic rebound following a recession. 'The rebound is missing' from the Great Recession, said Stern School Professor Veldkamp. But given that the U.S. economy has been expanding at a slow and steady pace, she believes there's a good chance the current expansion will become the longest one on record."

    Excerpt from The New York Times -- "People are attracted by goodness and repelled by selfishness. N.Y.U. social psychologist Jonathan Haidt has studied the surges of elevation we feel when we see somebody performing a selfless action. Haidt describes the time a guy spontaneously leapt out of a car to help an old lady shovel snow from her driveway. One of his friends, who witnessed this small act, later wrote: 'I felt like jumping out of the car and hugging this guy. I felt like singing and running, or skipping and laughing. Just being active. I felt like saying nice things about people. Writing a beautiful poem or love song. Playing in the snow like a child. Telling everybody about his deed.'"

    Excerpt from Barron's -- "'Amazon has effectively conspired, with voice and technology and about a half-billion consumers, to destroy brands,' said Scott Galloway, a New York University marketing professor in an April talk that still is discussed on Wall Street. Amazon’s view, he argues, is that brands have an 'unearned' price premium that doesn’t match their benefits to consumers."

    Excerpt from Bloomberg -- "I think the road to prosperity in the United States has gotten a lot steeper, and the road to prosperity in developing countries also got a lot steeper. And it's not surprising. Just two days ago, the Secretary General from the UN, Antonio Guterres, came to Stern to give a speech about climate change, and I think he chose the business school at NYU for a reason. This agreement is about business, and jobs are a critical part of this."

    Excerpt from EPFL Magazine -- "The ARCH model is sort of a fundamental tool, the most commonly used tool for short-run risk measure by financial institutions, hedge funds, pension funds, banks — all sorts of institutions use this measure and I think it helps provide some measure of security and discipline to managing risk. But more broadly, ARCH is a tool that helps finance people do better statistics."
