    Excerpt from the Associated Press -- "'Creditworthy firms in industries with a prevalence of zombie firms suffered significantly from credit misallocation, which slowed down the economic recovery,' wrote the four economists: Viral Acharya at New York University's Stern School of Business, Tim Eisert from Erasmus University Rotterdam, Christian Eufinger at IESE Business School in Barcelona and Christian Hirsch at the Goethe University in Frankfurt."

    Excerpt from the Financial Times -- "[Henry] is adamant that financial services companies need to engage with the longer-term issues that preoccupy economists — such as income inequality — rather than just the more pressing matters that managers tend to focus on. In keeping with this mantra, NYU Stern is focusing fundraising on creating full scholarships for high-achieving, low-income students — the aim is to offer 200, up from 34 now. 'New buildings are wonderful, but we prefer to invest our resources in human capital.'"

    Excerpt from Quartz -- "'[Cities] can’t contain expansion. Expansion is growing in leaps and bounds,' says Angel, who heads an NYU initiative that advises cities on how to make sprawl as 'vibrant, inclusive, and affordable' as possible. This rules out, for example, simply drawing an urban boundary to limit sprawl; places like Seoul and Portland, Oregon, have tried that and house prices have gone through the roof, making the cities unaffordable for many."

    Excerpt from Bloomberg View -- "It's really a situation where we have to think about how do we change the laws in a way that accommodates this activity because a lot of people want to host on Airbnb. A lot of guests want Airbnb. So society wants this service. What I think will happen in the long run is a couple of things: One is that we will in fact change the laws around that prevent people from renting for less than 30 days and so on. But I think we're also going to delegate a lot of responsibility to parties other than the government."

    Excerpt from The Washington Post -- "'To me the real implication of this is highlighting the fact that lawmakers have to start recognizing that these categories are increasingly inadequate and something like unemployment benefits shouldn’t be reserved for one kind of work,' said Arun Sundararajan, a professor at New York University's Stern School of Business."
  • CoinDesk logo
    Excerpt from CoinDesk -- "Overall, Yermack, who teaches a cryptocurrency course at NYU’s Stern School of Business, offered a much broader vision for the use of blockchain in finance than what the industry is considering, as well as more critical takes on how incumbents are exploring the tech."

    Excerpt from CNBC -- "'Twitter is a poster child for a company in need of adult supervision and I don't believe that [CEO] Jack Dorsey can run one company effectively, let alone two,' said Aswath Damodaran, finance professor at New York University Stern School of Business. Botching up their sale prospects, he says, is further evidence of Dorsey's inefficiencies as a leader."

    Excerpt from Moneyweb -- "A monthly analysis by Engle and the Volatility Institute at New York University’s Stern School of Business ranks the systemic risk contribution (SRISK%) of a number of South African banks and financial services companies higher than the riskiest European banks."

    Excerpt from ABC News -- "Ghose said that to restore trust with consumers, the company would have to recall all of the defective phones (a process it has started), pinpoint the cause of the problem, fully reimburse consumers and convince its business partners 'to give it another shot with the next set of product releases.'"

    Excerpt from Reuters -- "'One of the risks for Bangladesh right now is that between the July terror attack, the legacy of Rana Plaza and now this (Tampaco fire), it begins to look like a non-desirable place to do business,' said Sarah Labowitz, co-head of NYU Stern's Center for Business and Human Rights. 'The government and industry really need to step up and respond.'"

    Excerpt from Ticker Magazine -- "The Knowledge Effect is grounded in academic literature. It was first discovered in a series of studies in the 1990s, when NYU’s Baruch Lev analyzed 20 years of financial data and discovered an association between a firm’s level of knowledge capital and its subsequent stock performance."
  • washington post logo feature
    Excerpt from The Washington Post -- "Scott Galloway, a professor at New York University’s Stern School of Business, said Mayer probably relied on her legal counsel to vet the document rather than reviewing it herself. 'However, CEOs are ultimately accountable for what’s in the proxy,' he said, 'if it comes out that their lack of transparency was a function of them not wanting to hamstring the Verizon deal, then they've held material information back from an acquirer.'"

    Excerpt from Sky News -- "During the referendum campaign, someone said the real danger of Brexit is you'll end up with higher interest rates, lower house prices and a lower exchange rate, and I thought: dream on. Because that's what we've been trying to achieve for the past three years and now we have a chance of getting it."

    Excerpt from The New York Times -- "Internet service providers 'are trying to go after those folks who are willing to pay less, but not to appeal to those willing to pay more,' said Robert Seamans, an associate professor at New York University’s Stern School of Business and a former economist at the Obama White House."
  • wall street journal logo feature
    Excerpt from The Wall Street Journal -- "Their research suggests CEO performance incentives should be set relative to performance of managers in similar industries, so as not to reward them for events beyond their control that affect all industries. 'That we do not see [this] more in practice is often a failure of governance,' Mr. Philippon said in an interview."

    Excerpt from The Wall Street Journal -- "Mr. Altman, in the report, said the results show earnings growth is slowing across all sectors when compared to last year. 'While the companies in the middle market are profitable, this is the first quarter since we began tracking this data in 2012 that ebitda was essentially flat on a year-over-year basis,' he said."
  • new yorker logo feature
    Excerpt from The New Yorker -- "'If I was going to compete with Google, I would compete on privacy,' Arun Sundararajan, a professor at NYU’s business school and the author of the book 'The Sharing Economy,' says. 'I can’t compete with them on search-engine quality, because they’ve got all the best algorithms. So I compete on something that they can’t respond to easily. With Uber, it’s not quite as clear-cut, but if you look at all the different dimensions of their execution the driver relationship is the weakest, and it’s not one that they can easily correct.'"

    Excerpt from Bloomberg -- "'The risk is not that the U.K. has a recession of two-three quarters; the risk is that the U.K. will stagnate at 1 percent growth for the next five years,' Roubini said."
  • crains new york logo feature
    Excerpt from Crain's New York -- "The question of when to talk openly about performance is a complicated one for private companies. Those that disclose might seem more transparent than those that don't, but they also could be engaged in a subtle battle of wits, according to Joshua Ronen, a professor of accounting at NYU's Stern School of Business. 'If I provide my revenue and a competitor doesn't, I'm signaling that I'm better,' he said."
  • politifact logo feature
    Excerpt from PolitiFact -- "At most, Trump might be able to argue that he has some fiduciary obligations to his employees, suggested Lawrence White, a professor at New York University’s Stern School of Business. That would be arguable 'to the extent that any bankruptcy -- which might have arisen if he had not availed himself of these loss carry-forward/carry-back opportunities -- would have converted them into unsecured claimants for any delayed wages or other benefits,' White said."

    Excerpt from BBC -- "I, too, worry about currency manipulation. I worry about chronic imbalances that are going to have to be unwound and I do worry about the international transmission of shocks. The question is whether, if we see certain things that we don't like about the architecture of the global system, do we take steps that basically risk pulling the whole house down?"

    Excerpt from The Economist -- "According to number-crunching by Adam Looney of the Treasury Department and Constantine Yannelis of New York University, non-traditional students made up more than half of all new borrowers from the federal government between 2004 and 2014. They accounted for fully 70% of those who defaulted within two years of starting repayments in 2011."
