    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 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."

    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."

    Excerpt from The New York Times -- "'We are in a trust spiral,' said Jonathan Haidt, a social psychologist at New York University.

    Excerpt from The New York Times -- "'It may well be the mayor will be riding a wave rather than generating a wave,' Lawrence J. White, a professor at New York University’s Stern School of Business. 'Doing things around the edges to help probably helps, but it’s going to be hard at the end of the day to know, did it really make a difference?'"

    Excerpt from WalletHub -- "Credit card issuers that offer many different varieties of credit cards - such as Capital One - are most likely to offer second chance cards. Also, there are some companies - e.g., Green Dot - that appear to focus more on secured (prepaid) cards, which make sense as second chance products."

  • Bloomberg Quint logo 192 x 144
    Excerpt from Bloomberg Quint -- "'The big piece of the problem is can you get the bank to sell the assets at the right price to ARCs (asset reconstruction companies) and private investors who want to come in? How to get that right price by using a portfolio or a bad bank approach is going to be key. We are going to be thinking about what kind of design could help with that,' said RBI deputy governor Acharya on Wednesday."

  • wnyc logo feature
    Excerpt from WNYC -- "Steven Blader teaches a course on conflict, collaboration and negotiation at New York University’s Stern business school, and he uses Trump as an example in his class. Blader said Trump puts people on the defensive. In a negotiation, that can cause both parties to miss the best possible outcome. 'His mindset that good negotiations are about being domineering and aggressive is counter to exactly what we know to be the case when it comes to negotiation, where you’re far better off mixing collaboration and competition together,' Blader said."

    Excerpt from Mashable -- "'When you were buying this stock, you knew you were basically ceding all control to Mark Zuckerberg,' said Robert Salomon, associate professor of management and operations at New York University's Stern school of business. 'And if you didn't like that, you shouldn't have bought the shares.'"
  • bloomberg view logo
    Excerpt from Bloomberg View -- "One popular worry about modern financial capitalism is that companies are investing less in their future growth than they should be, because rapacious shareholders are demanding that they spend their money on stock buybacks instead. Here's a new working paper from Germán Gutiérrez and Thomas Philippon finding more or less that."
  • telegraph logo feature
    Excerpt from The Telegraph -- “Where you’ve seen that in the UK is exactly on those issues where parties in a sense suppressed the debate … And in the end it may well have been inevitable either that there was a referendum or that one of the parties would have had to represent in a very clear way their position on the EU and give people a chance to vote on it.”
  • ICAS logo 192 x 144
    Excerpt from ICAS -- "'It’s fine if you want to eliminate the deficit, but the reverse will happen,' says [Salomon]. 'As that money flows out and we start levying tariffs, interest rates will rise and things will get more expensive for Americans.' When Americans stop spending, companies don’t profit and then they don’t hire as much, creating the reverse effect."
  • thestreet logo feature
    Excerpt from TheStreet.com -- "'The average Indian consumer does not need as much as "localization" in high tech and high value assets as the average consumer elsewhere, such as in China. What that means is what works in the US will also, for the most part, work very well in India,' said Ghose."

    Excerpt from Bloomberg -- "Esaki and his co-author, Larry White, a professor at NYU Stern School of Business, are trying to fix a long-standing problem in the ratings business: issuers pay for ratings, so graders have an incentive to go easy on their customers to win more business."

    Excerpt from Forbes -- "Recognizing that low cost hardware manufacturing is not a way to sustain an economy when lower labor countries can undercut them in price, and recognizing the tremendous, broad spectrum engineering talent it has as a country, Taiwan is once again reinventing itself, focusing on intellectual property and innovation that are less capital intensive."

    Excerpt from The New York Times -- "Paul Romer is a highly regarded macroeconomist who recently became chief economist at the World Bank. (It was Romer who is credited with having coined, in 2004, the famous slogan that 'a crisis is a terrible thing to waste.') Last winter he, too, issued a lacerating critique of his field, titled 'The Trouble With Macroeconomics.' His argument focuses on the question of 'identification,' which is shorthand in the field for how economists identify the cause of an event."
  • new york post logo feature
    Excerpt from The New York Post -- "'These stories, like this mother and daughter (from 84 Lumber), are ultimately hard to refute, hard to be critical of,' NYU marketing professor Minah Jung said. 'There was a collection of ads emphasizing liberty, equality, pro-immigration, diversity, uniting people from all backgrounds, openness to diversity.'"
  • marketing dive logo 192 x 144
    Excerpt from Marketing Dive -- "'A lot of people are watching the Super Bowl just for the commercials. So any influencer that comments on or ties their post back to the commercials could do particularly well,' said Barasch. '[P]eople are looking to engage with brands, products, and ads more on Super Bowl day than any other day of the year — so something that is geared towards consumer action (e.g., visiting a website, using a hashtag on social media, participating in a contest) could be particularly effective.'"

    Excerpt from RealClearPolitics -- "Zipf’s Law itself is interesting and important, but the mechanics behind it are what really help explain the persistent split we see in mega-urban/rest-of-the-U.S. population. Harvard Professor Xavier Gabaix has written that Zipf’s Law will hold if every city, irrespective of its size, follows roughly the same random growth processes."

    Excerpt from the Associated Press -- "The better educated and informed the public is, the more likely they are going to be 'asking questions and exploring alternative sources of information,' says Mike Posner, co-founder and co-director of the NYU Stern Center for Business and Human Rights. 'What you really want is people saying they want to see different sides of an issue, looking at things by people who don't agree with me, so one (part of the solution) is public education.'"
