    Excerpt from Entrepreneur -- "'Uber is good at a lot of things -- technology, global scaling -- but its weakness for years has been its relationship with its drivers,' says Arun Sundararajan, a professor at New York University and an expert on the sharing economy. 'That left open an opportunity for an entrant to differentiate themselves on that weakness.'"

    Excerpt from The Washington Post -- "'Many of these affluent-area projects would have been built and jobs created without the infusion of EB-5 capital,' said Gary Friedland, a scholar in residence at New York University’s Stern School of Business. 'Consequently, deserving projects can’t be built and the resulting jobs are lost because the projects are deprived of the essential capital to proceed.'"

    Excerpt from the Thomson Reuters Foundation -- "Simply extending the mandate of the current private initiatives in Bangladesh while following the same premises will not make the RMG sector safe and sustainable. All of those working on these issues, inside Bangladesh and in the greater international community, need to go back to the drawing board, and build on the lessons from the past four years."

    Excerpt from The Federalist -- "State-sponsored visa programs would direct temporary foreign workers to the states that want them without pushing additional migrants on the states that don’t. Many states have already exhibited an interest in administering their own visa programs. The Johnson-Buck plan meets them halfway. Lawmakers across the political spectrum should welcome the opportunity to pilot state-based visa programs that can generate jobs and growth in their home states."

    Excerpt from Bloomberg -- "A 2016 study by Ethan Mollick of the University of Pennsylvania’s Wharton School and Jason Greenberg of New York University’s Stern School on crowdfunding campaigns showed that potential male funders didn’t care whether a project was created by a man or women. Two-thirds of women thought a project was better when told it was created by a man than the project created by a woman, even when it was exactly the same project."

    Excerpt from the International Business Times -- "Some, however, like Lawrence White, an economics professor at New York University’s Stern School of Business, aren’t too worried about the burden of a nationwide stimulus being thrown on the shoulders of local debt issuers, as much of the funding should come from the federal government or public-private partnerships if the projects are federally-mandated. 'There will be some kind of presence there. The feds are going to be involved,' White said. Still, he added, citing the general uncertainty associated with the Trump administration, 'Who knows?'"

But he said in response to a question afterward that the United Nations believes 'it would be important for the U.S. not to leave the Paris agreement.'"

  • WashingTECH podcast logo 192 x 144
    Excerpt from WashingTECH -- "In my book, I talk about the important distinction that policymakers should provide between government use of our data and corporate use of our data. So what I mean by that is, if Amazon or Google or Apple, any other company, is trying to send me an offer or a message and that's not relevant or that's not well targeted, it may end up being annoying. But it's not going to completely change my life. Whereas, we've also seen issues about government use of our data that goes to the extent of extreme surveillance. So I would like the average consumer to be embracing the distinction between government use of data and corporate use of data, and I think policymakers should also embrace that distinction."

    Excerpt from Business Insider -- "Alter said in his talk that screens 'rob us of stopping cues,' which are signals that remind us to move on. The distraction and entertainment is constant, unlike a newspaper which finishes when you reach the end. Instead, there is no obvious time to stop — so we don't."

'You'd have to have all the wealth in the world in bitcoin to keep that up.' In other words, past performance is not indicative of future results."

    Excerpt from Forbes -- "The recognition that the few hundred people in the room had barely started their journey was reflected in remarks by NYU Stern Business School professor Luke Williams. 'It takes a long time for people’s thinking to catch up to the technology,' he said. 'One of the reasons we’re here today is to allow our thinking to keep track with the mechanism of technology. Thinking changes much slower because we’re dealing with really well-established concepts like money.'"

She actually testifies in gold price manipulation cases that are going on. She wrote a report reaching the same conclusions. It’s not just an opinion, it’s not just a deep, dark conspiracy theory. Here’s a PhD statistician and a prominent market expert lawyer, expert witness in litigation qualified by the courts, who independently reached the same conclusion."

    Excerpt from The Washington Post -- "Lisa Leslie, a professor at New York University, looked at the highest-paid executives in S&P 1500 companies and found what might be called a 'diversity premium,' in which women at the top earn more than men in these top-paid positions at big companies. The reason, Leslie told the Harvard Business Review, is that companies that have adopted organizational diversity goals — something common at the largest companies — are more likely to pay extra for high-potential women."

    Excerpt from Fox News -- "Every time you check an email, it could be something fantastic or it could be something mundane or maybe you don't have one at all. The same is true of every social media experience you have. You send something out into the world, sometimes you get great feedback, sometimes you don't. And that question mark is something that humans find really compelling."
  • bloomberg view logo
    Excerpt from Bloomberg View -- "Xavier Gabaix of New York University, for example, has been experimenting with one that seeks to account for human limitations in foreseeing the future and adjusting their behavior. One important insight: Because people don’t actually smooth their consumption perfectly over the life cycle, fiscal stimulus or 'helicopter drops of money' really can get them to spend more and help pull an economy out of recession."
