• Excerpt from Strategy + Business -- "The approach Schilling takes with Quirky is a variant of the case study method — instead of companies, the cases here are the lives of great inventors. She examines their lives to uncover the common personality traits and 'foibles' that helped them see what others did not. Schilling argues that serial breakthrough innovators are different from the rest of us because they’re able to come up with groundbreaking innovations over and over again, rather than just once. And their innovations represent dramatic leaps, rather than incremental improvements."

    Excerpt from CNBC -- "Everybody, of course, looks back to the 1930s and the Smoot-Hawley tariff. And they tend to over-emphasize the importance of Smoot-Hawley. It was a bad thing; it certainly made things worse, but it wasn't the sole cause of the Great Depression in the 1930s. We aren't there yet, but what does worry me... is we could see escalation."
  • Excerpt from BNN -- "I think we will and I think we should ... I have been arguing for this for a while now about the perils, the kinds of risks, that these social media platforms have posed to society. I think given the information coming out, I think we are going to see some concern and some regulation around these social media platforms. The details need to be worked out but I think not doing anything is not an option anymore."

  • Excerpt from Quartz -- "How did Uber’s ratings become more inflated than grades at Harvard? That’s the topic of a new paper, 'Reputation Inflation,' from NYU’s John Horton and Apostolos Filippas, and Collage.com CEO Joseph Golden.

  • Excerpt from Fox Business -- "'If he was serious about this, he would have made the argument against all of big tech, and he would have privately gone to some Democratic and Republican senators and made it a bipartisan issue,' he said.

  • Excerpt from AdAge -- "Sorrell built WPP into the world's largest agency company and has not publicly identified possible successors, but that doesn't mean he's irreplaceable, suggests Karen Brenner, a clinical professor of business at the Leonard N. Stern School of Business at NYU. 'Think about companies where you have iconic CEOs who are so closely associated with the company,' Brenner says. Outsiders frequently believe such companies will suffer without that CEO at the helm, she says, citing the example of Steve Jobs and Apple."

'We applaud Facebook for recognizing that Russian disinformation online is a serious problem and for developing a response to this sustained effort to inject political propaganda into American society, as well into Russian and European societies.'"

    Excerpt from CNBC -- "I think it builds on a solid foundation. It's going into a business that is broken. The music business fundamentally is broken and I think Spotify might be the best chance for the music business to turn itself around. So I think you have to build from the basics again, revenues and margins improving over time are what's going to drive the value of the company."
  • Excerpt from The Sydney Morning Herald -- "Researchers Priya Raghubir and Joydeep Srivastava found that there are significant differences in spending based on how shoppers pay for things. Their main argument was that 'the more transparent the payment outflow, the greater the aversion to spending or higher the pain of paying… leading to less transparent payment modes such as credit cards and gift cards (vs. cash) being more easily spent or treated as play or "monopoly money".'"

At an event that NYC Media Lab hosted in 2015, Alexander Tuzhilin, professor of information systems at the NYU Stern School of Business, pointed out that most of the targeting applications we see today represent the second generation of these technologies. The data employed includes context awareness, spatiotemporal and mobile data, multi-criteria ratings, social-media data, conversational recommendations, and more. These are standard tools of the trade used in targeting by internet marketers, as well as by Cambridge Analytica in 2016."
  • Excerpt from CNBC -- "If brands find the right counterpart for a viral partnership, it can create a great synergy, according to Michelle Greenwald, marketing professor at NYU Stern. She says that it can be a funny juxtaposition and bring new audiences to both brands. Warby Parker's brand isn't one that's generally associated with comedy, so Arby's can help lighten the mood and bring comedy to the table. Greenwald says that the brands' different audiences can help bring exposure to both of them and create more widespread awareness without spending much money."

    Excerpt from PrimeRates -- "If people need to borrow for a specific project, such as a home renovation, or if they have self-control problems, then it can make sense to take out a personal loan. A pre-specified amount helps people to avoid over-borrowing and making impulsive purchases. On the other hand, if people have indeterminate borrowing needs or surprised expenses, opening a line of credit can make sense."
