    Excerpt from The New York Times -- "'These zombie loans are just bad for the economy,' said Viral V. Acharya, one of the report’s authors and a specialist in European debt at New York University’s Stern School of Business. 'The problem is that Europe never injected capital into its banks like TARP in the U.S.'"

    Excerpt from Luxury Daily -- "'Considering that British brands have been doing well in the United States, a trend that has grown stronger in the last five years and perhaps will counteract the consequences of Brexit, it is no accident that Victoria Beckham enjoys a positive brand equity in the American market,' [Serdari] said. 'With playful Instavideos being released through Victoria Beckham's Instafeed almost a month before her collection hits the stores the celebrity designer can certainly drive interest in her new, stylishly packaged beauty collection.'"

    Excerpt from Reuters -- "Asset management services are still expensive. Banks generate large spreads on deposits. Finance could and should be much cheaper. In that respect, the puzzle is not that fintech is happening now. The puzzle is why it did not happen earlier."

    Excerpt from Yahoo News -- "Adam L. Alter and Hal E. Hershfield from New York University and UCLA, respectively, found across six studies that at the end of a decade, people become more preoccupied with aging and worries about life’s meaningfulness. The researchers said that such thoughts lead to behaviors that 'suggest a search for, or a crisis of meaning.'"

    Excerpt from Bloomberg -- "'There has been enormous regulatory pressure on financial institutions to reduce risk,' Tuckman said. 'Therefore, deleveraging has not only reduced the overall size of the repo market, but has also increased the fraction of the market in Treasury repo.'"

    Excerpt from Bloomberg -- "'While these banks may meet a weak regulatory test, as the more than 40 percent decline of bank equities over the past year implies, they do not meet the market test,' [Kim Schoenholtz and coauthor Stephen Cecchetti] write. This criticism is consistent with a new research paper published by academic economics Viral V. Acharya, Diane Pierret, and Sascha Steffen. Based on the disclosures made available by the EBA stress test, they estimate that European banks face a capital shortfall of 123 billion euros, when set against U.S. supervisory standards and a 4 percent leverage ratio — also known as a capital-to-asset ratio, a measure that determines how much capital a lender needs to set aside relative to the assets they hold."

    Excerpt from Marketplace -- "'There’s just less labor content in a manufactured item,' said Robert Whitelaw, professor of entrepreneurial finance at NYU. 'A high-end GE refrigerator only has two hours of labor in it,' he said, adding that automation is also a powerful force at the low end of manufacturing. 'Where labor costs are less important, other things become more important, like distance,' he said."

    Excerpt from the Financial Times -- "Using auction data and game theory, the authors came to the conclusion that full pre-auction information sharing between dealers and investors would raise $4.8bn more revenue for the US Treasury each year than a fully closed bidding mechanism where no information is shared. The paper comes from New York Fed economists Nina Boyarchenko and David Lucca, along with NYU professor Laura Veldkamp."

    Excerpt from the Financial Times -- "In theory, the blockchain technology could improve the efficiency of the market, but if there is no entry, this would simply increase the rents of incumbents. A restricted blockchain could in fact be used by incumbents to deter entry and stifle innovation."

    Excerpt from Bloomberg -- "'There have been very few manipulation cases proved,' said Rosa M.

'The requirements are high, they’re difficult to establish.'"
  • financial times logo feature
    Excerpt from the Financial Times -- "The report’s authors — ZEW’s Sascha Steffen, NYU Stern’s Viral Acharya and University of Lausanne’s Diane Pierre — argue that the tests dramatically underestimate the actual capital shortfall at the banks, which they say could be as high as €900bn based on a market measure of capital."
  • the guardian logo feature
    Excerpt from The Guardian -- "The significance of the Didi deal is as much about the endurance of the sharing economy as it is about Uber itself, according to Sundararajan. 'This is a moment that speaks to the immense market size of sharing-economy industries,' he says. 'We should be looking at this as the next generation of transportation. Uber isn’t going after the taxi industry; it’s going after the automotive industry. It wants to divert the trillions of dollars we spend on new and used cars.'"

    Excerpt from The Boston Globe -- "According to business-school professors at New York University and Stanford University, self-reliance earns women respect — as it’s a positive trait typically associated with men — and without undermining women’s reputation for being team players, and without the fallout from being bossy. In an analysis of 360-degree employee feedback, self-reliance was associated with better leadership ratings for women, but not for men, even controlling for age, self-esteem, dominance, and feeling in control of one’s fate."

    Excerpt from Fortune -- "Large companies often pay tens of millions of dollars simply to show the Olympic rings insignia on their particular products in the run-up to the games and after, says Alvin Lieberman, clinical professor of marketing entrepreneurship and innovation at New York University’s Stern School of Business. ... Crowdfunding can be a good alternative to running up expenses they can’t pay for. 'It is a very good place for athletes to go and for people to connect,' Lieberman says."

    Excerpt from The Washington Post -- "...A 2013 experiment found that young people looked more favorably upon older adults who 'act their age' by listening to Frank Sinatra over the Black Eyed Peas, or by being more generous with their money. One of the researchers, Michael North, an assistant professor at New York University’s Stern School of Business, says younger people tend to resent it when older workers don’t 'get out of the way' and retire."

    Excerpt from Fast Company -- "'Her influence has been extremely large, but in many ways, she's likely a unique case, and I wouldn't expect anywhere near the same thing from any other person,' Yermack says. 'Michelle was popular with Democrats, Republicans, and at times, even more popular than her husband. She was often very much able to transcend the politics and connect with the greater public.'"

    Excerpt from Fortune -- "'The EU is making the same mistakes over and over and over again,' says Viral Acharya, a professor at NYU’s Stern School of Business. 'They’re not demanding that the banks be recapitalized as they should be, and allowing things to get worse by enabling lenders to keep zombie loans they should have dumped years ago.'"

    Excerpt from the Associated Press -- "'They didn’t expect to win so no one has any idea what to do now,' said Pankaj Ghemawat, a professor at IESE Business School in Spain and NYU, of the campaign to leave the EU. 'The analogy that comes to mind is the dog chasing the car. Sometimes the dog catches the car, and then doesn’t know what to do with it.'"

  • bbc news logo feature
    Excerpt from BBC News -- "It's quite possible that Uber has prioritized rapid growth over deepening its understanding of the culture and business practices of the countries that it enters. I certainly think that they prioritize getting a presence on the ground over a careful, measured entry strategy. But in the business that they're in, that might be necessary. Because in each city, the company that gains drivers and gains passengers early is likely to have an advantage in the long run because when you have more drivers, the passengers like your service. And the passengers like your service, you become more attractive to drivers."
