    Excerpt from the Associated Press -- "But the $15 million-a-year Human Project is breaking ground with the scope of individual data it plans to collect simultaneously, says Dr. Vasant Dhar, editor-in-chief of the journal Big Data, which published a 2015 paper about the project. 'It is very ambitious,' the NYU information systems professor says."
  • wall street journal logo feature
    Excerpt from The Wall Street Journal -- "I’ve seen platforms, like Catalant for management consultants, UpCounsel for legal services, Gigster for high-end machine-learning programming. There are platforms for accounting, for sales—where rather than going to a large branded service provider for certain things, you go to a platform instead. Like, if you struck out on your own as a lawyer now you’d be precluded from a lot of large corporate work because they go to the big firms. What these platforms are doing is trying to strike that middle ground where the individual is running their own tiny business through the platform, but the platform is aggregating demand, giving them scale, giving them a little bit of brand."

    Excerpt from The Australian -- "Claudine Gartenberg, Andrea Prat and George Serafeim analysed responses from 456,666 employees in 429 firms over six years and across a broad range of industries. In their paper, Corporate Purpose and Financial Performance (hbswk.hbs.edu/item/corporate-purpose-and-financial-performance), published by Harvard Business School last year, the trio found that 'firms exhibiting both high purpose and clarity have systematically higher future accounting and stock market performance'."
  • venturebeat logo
    Excerpt from VentureBeat -- "Adam Alter, a marketing professor at NYU-Stern, tries to explain this in Irresistible: The Rise of Addictive Technology and the Business of Keeping Us Hooked. He cites a 2015 study that shows 6 in 10 people (59 percent) admit they are dependent on social media sites but say their reliance on these sites ultimately makes them unhappy."
  • economist logo feature
    Excerpt from The Economist -- "In some areas red tape surely has choked lending—notably residential mortgages, where recklessness led to catastrophe a decade ago. But the report pays scant attention to the possibility that slow growth may instead cause weak demand for credit. 'I don’t think the economy is credit-constrained,' says Kim Schoenholtz of New York University’s Stern School of Business."

    Excerpt from Quartz -- "'They have been able to utilise the manufacturing infrastructure in Shenzhen and thus build high-quality smartphones with flagship-standard specs at low cost,' NYU’s Ghose said, adding that they also enjoy tax breaks and more lenient labour and environmental standards. Now, with Indian prime minister Narendra Modi’s 'Make in India' push, Chinese phone-makers like Huawei are bringing their production to India, driving down costs further by bypassing import charges."

    Excerpt from Forbes -- "The Gatorade Gx platform, including customizable hydration pods, creates a new, direct-to-consumer business model for Gatorade and more sustainable product delivery system. Building on years of science and research at the Gatorade Sports Science Institute, Gx incorporates compelling aspects of the latest trends in personalization and customization."
  • bloomberg logo new
    Excerpt from Bloomberg -- "I think there are positive aspects to both the CHOICE Act and to the Treasury proposal. I think it makes a lot of sense to reduce the regulatory burden on most banks, which are, in fact, rather small and pose very little threat to the financial system. However, unfortunately, both the CHOICE Act and the Treasury's proposal also appear to reduce the capital needs for the largest, most interconnected, most opaque banks, the ones that can really threaten the system."

    Excerpt from The New York Times -- "As Aswath Damodaran, a finance professor at the New York University Stern School of Business, put it, 'It’s always tough to follow a legend.'"
  • cctv logo
    Excerpt from CCTV -- "GM is trying to announce that it's a player on the stage of autonomous vehicles now. It's competing with the likes of Google and Apple. And GM is moving into that business. It's not content just to be an automobile assembler, an automobile manufacturer -- but also wants to be a technology player as well. So this announcement says, hey, we have the entire capabilities right now to go ahead and mass-produce not just the vehicle portion, but the vehicle portion plus the technology portion."
  • poets and quants logo
    Excerpt from Poets & Quants -- "'JP Eggers for Strategy (core). As someone with little prior formal business education, having him my first semester was a very helpful way to get acclimated. The way he broke down cases and worked through frameworks reminded me of literature and history classes from my liberal arts degree.'
    – Ward Wolff, New York University (Stern)"
  • bloomberg logo feat
    Excerpt from Bloomberg -- "For example, a 2014 paper by John Asker, Joan Farre-Mensa and Alexander Ljungqvist found that 'compared to private firms, public firms invest substantially less and are less responsive to changes in investment opportunities.' Also, there’s evidence that founder-led companies tend to outperform."
  • wall street journal logo feature
    Excerpt from The Wall Street Journal -- "Every major industry is vulnerable to disruption, said NYU Stern professor Arun Sundararajan. Managing that disruption, CFOs and other top executives will become more important than ever, Mr. Sundararajan said."
  • thestreet logo feature
    Excerpt from TheStreet.com -- "'This could make sense for smaller, non-systemic banks,' he said. 'For the larger systemic banks, 10% capital may not be enough, or 10% capital alone without other things like stress tests, like closer scrutiny, because these are the large systemic guys, these are the guys who, if they did get into trouble, could have contagion type effects.'"
  • wired logo feature
    Excerpt from WIRED -- "'If nothing else, you will see more caution, at least for the moment, in how founders present themselves in public,' says Aswath Damodaran, a professor of finance at NYU's Stern School of Business. ... 'This is a good illustration of how, if you place growth above everything else, it can lead to long-term repercussions for the company,' says Sundararajan."
  • luxury daily logo feature
    Excerpt from Luxury Daily -- "'It serves two functions. On the one hand, it allows technology to become a very handy platform through which the medium of fashion can be explained, illustrated and preserved all the while reaching a very broad public,' [Serdari] said. 'On the other hand, it also demonstrates Google's unconventional thinking in terms of classifying and discussing fashion.'"
  • Bloomberg Quint logo 192 x 144
    Excerpt from Bloomberg Quint -- "While disagreement among market participants has always been a feature of markets, seldom has there been such a divide between those who believe that we are on the verge of a massive correction and those who equally vehemently feel that this is the cusp of a new bull market, and between those who see unprecedented economic and policy uncertainty and market indicators that suggest the exact opposite."

    Excerpt from eTurboNews -- "The McKinsey Global Institute sponsored a conference at the NYU Stern School of Business that focused on 'The Digital Future of Work.' Established in 1990, the Institute is the business and economic division of McKinsey that attempts to understand the evolving global economy. The organization provides leaders in the commercial, public, and social sectors with research and insights on which to base management and policy decisions."
  • bloomberg view logo
    Excerpt from Bloomberg View -- "We find that funds with greater investment by insiders outperform funds with less 'skin in the game' on a factor-adjusted basis; exhibit greater return persistence; and feature lower fund flow-performance sensitivities. These results suggest that managers earn outsize rents by operating trading strategies further from their capacity constraints when managing their own money."
  • cbs logo feature
    Excerpt from CBS News -- "The paper's authors -- NYU professors Theresa Kuchler and Johannes Stroebel; Ruiqing Cao, a graduate student at Harvard, and Michael Bailey, an economist at Facebook -- reached their conclusions by analyzing more than 1,200 Facebook accounts in Los Angeles County, noting their interactions with far-flung friends and matching those users, on an anonymized basis, to property transaction records."
  • financial times logo feature
    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."
  • cnbc logo feature
    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."
  • new york times logo feature
    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."
  • Spiceworks logo 192 x 144
    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."
  • bloomberg logo new
    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.'"
