    Excerpt from CIO -- "A classic paper on this, published in 1999, was Unskilled and Unaware of It by Justin Kruger and David Dunning of Cornell University. This study — pithily subtitled How Difficulties in Recognizing One's Own Incompetence Lead to Inflated Self-Assessments — first brought the phenomenon to a wide audience. Kruger and Dunning probed the reasons for the phenomenon and those hold some clues about how to handle it."

    Excerpt from Fast Company -- "Behavioral scientists have also found that just asking people about their future decisions significantly influences those decisions, a phenomenon known as the 'mere measurement effect.' Back in 1993, social scientists Vicki Morwitz, Eric Johnson, and David Schmittlein conducted a study with more than 40,000 participants that revealed that simply asking someone if people were going to purchase a new car within six months increased their purchase rates by 35%."
  • marketwatch logo feature
    Excerpt from MarketWatch -- "...Xavier Gabaix, a finance professor at New York University, predicts that all such attempts will be futile. In an interview, he told me that market crashes are caused by the largest players (institutional investors) all wanting to get out of the market at once — and that no regulation can stop them when they want to. That’s because they can inevitably find other markets in which to unload their positions."

    Excerpt from MarketWatch -- "'This IPO has generated a lot of hype,' says Scott Galloway, New York University business school professor and founder of marketing firm L2. 'But... Snap is a loser and will ring the bell at the top of the social-media market.'"

    Excerpt from Psychology Today -- "Research suggests that being generous often increases a person’s status within a group. But, does high status make people generous? This question was explored in a paper in the January, 2017 issue of the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology by Nicholas Hays and Steven Blader."

    Excerpt from Ad Age -- "'As politics become more polarizing, people may be more willing to endure inconveniences to make a point,' said Eric Greenleaf, a professor of marketing at New York University's Stern School of Business. 'And with online shopping, consumers have more alternatives.'"

    Excerpt from Inc. -- "'When you negotiate in a global world, what you want to create is a win-win,' explains Ari Ginsberg, a professor of entrepreneurship and management at New York University's Stern School of Business whose specialties include strategy and entering new markets. Otherwise, 'at the end, instead of cooperating, we'll continue competing until we get to the bottom,' Ginsberg says."

    Excerpt from WalletHub -- "What matters most are the specific terms of any credit card -- which are determined by the bank or credit union or other issuer. Given the general ubiquity of acceptability of Visa and MC by merchants and websites, etc., making distinctions between the 2 is generally not especially interesting."
  • kathimerini logo feature
    Excerpt from Kathimerini -- "The consequences of Grexit would be catastrophic for Greece both in the short and long term. The lack of competitiveness of the Greek economy would result in a quick devaluation of the new drachma vis-a-vis the euro, and the real income of employees and pensioners would shrink dramatically. The national and private debt in euros would became much larger in new drachmas and much more difficult to service. Deposits would be forcibly converted to new drachmas, losing at least half their value."

    Excerpt from The Telegraph -- "As Alter illustrates, a mere six ingredients lie behind most truly addictive experiences: goal setting, feedback, progress, escalation, cliffhangers, and social interaction. Think of the things you keep coming back to, for good or ill – running with your FitBit, watching Breaking Bad, browsing Facebook – and you’ll find one or more of these. Combine them all, as in a Massively Multiplayer Online Game like World of Warcraft, and to the right person at the right time they really can become irresistible."

    Excerpt from Metro MBA -- "Should you earn your MBA or your JD? Each has its pros and cons and can set you up in different ways, so which is better? Instead of choosing, why not get both? That’s exactly what you can do at the NYU Stern School of Business through the school’s dual degree programs."
  • Bloomberg Quint logo 192 x 144
    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."


     
  • financial times logo feature
    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 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."
