    Excerpt from Forbes India -- "[Lev] was one of the first to credibly point out the limitations of traditional accounting-based financial analysis in capturing a) the true risk profile of company and b) value creation possibilities. He believes that traditional financial analysis captures maybe 15 to 20 per cent of the reality—and I agree."

    Excerpt from Fortune -- "We found that all of the job losses associated with falling house prices during the Great Recession are concentrated among establishments of companies that increased their leverage during the go-go years. Put another way: Employees who had the bad luck of living in towns with a relatively high concentration of debt-laden companies were more likely to get laid off than people who lived elsewhere."

    Excerpt from The New York Times -- "Between 2009 and 2011, a group of economists at New York University’s Stern School of Business published an influential series of reports and books that sought to explain what, exactly, happened during the financial crisis. ... For the report’s principal authors, Matthew Richardson and Viral Acharya, the evidence of this shift came from careful study of the various ways that banks have legally evaded regulation of their capital requirements.A fundamental tenet of bank regulation is that banks shouldn’t borrow too much, because being overleveraged makes them vulnerable to collapse."

    Excerpt from Bloomberg -- "An exit from the euro 'would be a full-scale disaster for Greece, including the collapse of its banks, severe devaluation of its new currency, poverty and hyperinflation,' said Nicholas Economides, an economics professor at New York University’s Stern School of Business."

    Excerpt from Bloomberg -- "'It’s really about how Goldman is reacting to the tidal wave of litigation that now seems to be part of the ongoing government toolkit for regulating banks,' said Roy Smith, a professor of finance at New York University’s Stern School of Business and a former Goldman Sachs partner. 'It can help to have some people who know how government prosecutors and investigators think, some guy who has the mindset of an alligator.'"

    Excerpt from San Francisco Chronicle -- "The survey results 'underscore that schedule flexibility and work-life balance will be critical for the workforce of the future,' said NYU business professor Arun Sundararajan, who studies the on-demand economy. He thinks that about half of workers will be free-lancers over the next decade, either exclusively or for supplemental income."

    Excerpt from Institutional Investor -- "In reality, the market is just inefficient enough to allow skillful, hardworking active investors compensation for their efforts, costs and risks, but that’s the extent of the inefficiency. The market is just inefficient enough to reward skill, but efficient enough to discourage any more active investing than that."

    Excerpt from Bloomberg -- "Romer's mathiness eruption…it’s about the role of math in economic theory. Romer says that in the new, debased culture of macroeconomics, 'empirical work is science; theory is entertainment.'"

    Excerpt from Financial Times -- "'I think that Barclays is just the tip of several fines on Isdafix. Isdafix may become very large, as swaps are a very large market too. Maybe fines will not be bigger than the foreign exchange fines, but I expect they could still be very big,' says Rosa Abrantes-Metz, managing director of Global Economics Group, an economic analysis company."

    Excerpt from Bloomberg -- "I think this settlement will show that authorities are serious about deterring future behavior. I think that part of changing future behavior is also a lot of the changes that have happened with respect to how benchmarks are set. The reality is that benchmarks are easy targets - they're very easy to manipulate, nobody was looking, and the gains were humongous."

    Excerpt from Bloomberg -- "'It is likely Barclays is just the first bank' that will settle the ISDAfix charges, said Rosa Abrantes-Metz, an adjunct professor at New York University’s Stern School of Business who is serving as a consultant on a civil lawsuit against the banks related to ISDAfix. 'I studied the likelihood that actual collusion between the banks occurred and the empirical evidence supports that.'"

    Excerpt from CNBC -- "The three previous agreements with the lenders, while leading toward a balanced budget and solving fiscal deficits, implemented very few of the microeconomic reforms that would guarantee Greece becoming competitive and eventually not needing any more loan help. At the signing of its fourth loan agreement, it is high time to learn from the mistakes of the previous three and stress the micro rather than the macro part of the program."
  • project syndicate logo feature
    Excerpt from Project Syndicate -- "There is plenty of incentive for countries to collaborate, rather than using trade, finance, monetary policy, public-sector purchasing, tax policy, or other levers to undermine one another. After all, given the connectedness that characterizes today’s globalized financial and economic systems, a full recovery anywhere is virtually impossible without a broad-based recovery nearly everywhere."

    Excerpt from VICE -- "Greek economist Nicholas Economides, a professor at the Stern School of Business in New York, said leaving the Eurozone would have as severe consequences as the 1919-1922 Greco-Turkish war. 'We're talking about an enormous bank run as a result, no confidence in the new currency, poverty much worse than we've already seen, lack of basic items such as medicine and petrol,' ... Nobel Laureate Thomas J. Sargent, the summit's keynote speaker, told VICE News Greece was a key factor in what would happen next with Europe's single currency. 'Greece is right at the center of destiny of the Euro, not whether it survives but what it will look like as it survives,' he said."

    Excerpt from The Huffington Post -- "You wouldn't know it from the record low level of government bond yields, but much of Europe lives under a severe debt burden. Nonfinancial corporate debt exceeds 100 percent of GDP in Belgium, Finland, France, Ireland, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Portugal, and Spain. And, gross government debt (as measured by Eurostat) is close to or exceeds this threshold in Belgium, France, Greece, Ireland, Italy, Portugal and Spain."

    Excerpt from Ozy -- "Most professions worth their salt require certification, reasons NYU Stern Business School professor of management Anat Lechner. Yet people in management, who 'control, very often, many resources — and can influence pretty much everybody in society, directly and indirectly — don't.' She adds, as we all know too well, that 'one bad manager can ruin the lives of pretty much everybody underneath them.'"

    Prof. April Klein on DuPont's proxy fight

    May 18, 2015

    Excerpt from USA Today -- "April Klein, a professor of accounting at New York University’s Stern School of Business, said the money spent to keep Peltz off the board will benefit the company in the long run because it forced DuPont to review strategies to increase its stock price. She noted the proxy campaign’s $15 million cost is only a small percentage of DuPont’s $66.7 billion capitalization."

    Excerpt from The New York Times -- "Research from Thomas Philippon of New York University suggests the United States financial industry has become less efficient over the last 130 years at channeling capital toward productive use. And this same phenomenon may be a major contributor to rising inequality."

    Excerpt from The Washington Post -- "These divergent perspectives on the Pew survey are connected to larger narratives that frame how conservative and liberal Christians in the United States see themselves. In 'The Righteous Mind,' Jonathan Haidt describes the different 'stories' that arise, depending on whether you lean to the left or right politically. Though he has written primarily about 'liberals' and 'conservatives' from a political standpoint, I find his analysis easily applies to 'liberals' and 'conservatives' within Christianity also."
  • wall street journal logo feature
    Excerpt from The Wall Street Journal -- "There are several approaches to estimating where it stands at any given time, including surveying investors and looking at the historic relationship between stock and Treasury returns. An alternative method involves using expected future cash flows from stocks, as Stern School of Business professor Aswath Damodaran has done in the model he has made available on his website. According to this, the S&P 500’s equity-risk premium as of the end of April was 5.8 percentage points, which counts as one of the higher readings in data going back to 1960. On that basis, it seems like there is a sizable cushion between still very low yields on Treasurys and the stock market’s expected returns. In other words, stocks don’t look so expensive on this basis."

    Excerpt from Forbes -- "Sundararajan described the self-regulating trend of sharing economy companies. An advocate of self regulation, he’s clear to note he is not opposed to regulation generally, though it should be applied carefully. 'I believe in regulation very strongly because I believe in markets very strongly. And the purpose of regulation is to step in and help markets function better, to fill the gaps, correct them when things are going off the wrong way. So you can’t be anti-regulation if you are pro-market, it’s just a question of being surgical about it.'"
