• Excerpt from The Economist -- "This week’s proposal—for a new asset, sovereign-bond-backed securities (SBBS)—both leaves states responsible for their own debts and encourages banks to diversify sovereign risk. Issuers of SBBS, which could be public- or private-sector entities, would buy euro-area government bonds at market prices, and repackage them. Buyers of SBBS would be paid interest and principal (and be exposed to default) as if they owned the underlying bonds."
  • Excerpt from Business Insider -- "I think there's a challenge on the business side figuring out how to both be profitable. I'm pro company; I want companies to make a profit. But how to then operate in a globalized environment — globalized world — where we have very weak governments and very powerful companies. And so the idea that government alone is going to protect people from all the things that can go wrong — inequality, mistreatment of workers, etc. — it's not realistic."

    Excerpt from the Stamford Advocate -- "'Shrinking its footprint generally has been part of the recovery for RBS,' Lawrence J. White, a professor of economics in New York University’s business school, said in a recent interview.

  • Excerpt from Fox Business -- "Scott Galloway, a professor at New York University Stern School of Business and author of the best-selling 'The Four,' said these companies distort financial markets and capital flows.

  • Exerpt from MIT Sloan Management Review -- “Smartphones rule our lives. We text, swipe, and shop from our devices. And every time businesses tap into these phones, they are generating valuable streams of data that, using combinations of machine learning, data science, and artificial intelligence, they can put together and figure out a better way to curate their messages and their offers.”

    Excerpt from Moneyish -- "'If you think of the kinds of opportunities that these new capabilities will lead to, it’s almost like the sky’s the limit,' Dhar concluded. 'If you’re a writer and suddenly you have the ability to query the entire world … and have the computer come back and give you an intelligent answer — the scope of productivity is just huge.'"
  • Excerpt from CNBC -- "...I think Amazon already knows where they want to be and they're just creating this hunger games environment to mature the best term sheet possible and then give it to the city's mayor where they want to be and ask him or her to match it, which will be irresistible."

    Excerpt from Evolllution -- "I think it’s more and more important for schools to develop a sound point of difference or what we call a value proposition to try to get through a quarter of all the schools on contact. How do you develop a compelling message to our prospective enrollees at the college when they’re being exposed to all kinds of media, all kinds of information from other schools all the usual kinds of marketing devices? Colleges and universities have reacted by becoming much more consumer oriented, reaching students, reaching their parents, reaching the guidance counselors, and reaching the senior educators."

    Excerpt from Publishers Weekly -- "But as booksellers consider new models, keynoter Amy Webb (The Signals Are Talking: Why Today’s Fringe Is Tomorrow’s Mainstream), founder of the Future Today Institute, advised them to take into account technology and an automated future. 'I’m pro–independent bookstores,' Webb said. 'But I’m also a pragmatist. While I know you’re doing well today, my concern is that things change, and I am not entirely convinced that you’re prepared for the next 10 years or for the next 20 years.'"
  • Excerpt from Women's Wear Daily -- "'It challenges other brands that are charging a lot of money for magic potions based on secret ingredients but it would take a radical transformation of society to assume that only transparent brands will sell,’ said Serdari. ‘People’s motives in buying beauty products is deeply rooted in [the] psychological, rather than only physical, insecurities. These insecurities are healed as much by the product sold as by the type of escapism the brand offers.'"
  • Excerpt from Big Think -- "My general takeaway for marketers and businesses is to try not to make the sharing goal salient for people right when they walk into an experience. You see more and more hashtags on walls of establishments and the menus of restaurants. Move that activation process to when customers are finished or when they’re leaving or finishing their meal or when they’ve already made their purchase, because that allows people to be more in the moment."
  • London Review of Books logo 192 x 144
    Excerpt from the London Review of Books -- "In the mid-1980s, the economists Menachem Brenner and Dan Galai began to lobby the US options exchanges to create a ‘volatility index’, based on options prices, that would measure stock-market volatility in a way loosely analogous to – albeit mathematically far more sophisticated than – how the Dow Jones average or the Standard & Poor 500 Index summarises the market’s overall level."

  • Excerpt from NPR -- "But adapting a new safety net for the new workforce will take time, says Arun Sundararajan, a management professor at New York University. And he says the transition could be messy. 'Full-time employment didn't sort of come packaged with all of these wonderful things that we now associate with it; it was built sort of painstakingly over 100 years,' Sundararajan says."
  • Excerpt from The New York Times -- "As the social psychologist Jonathan Haidt concluded in his 2012 book, 'The Righteous Mind,' if we have 'affection, admiration, or desire to please' other people, we lean toward them and attempt to 'find the truth' in their arguments. Social proximity matters."

Traditionally, Softbank has supported local players over Uber in these markets,' Anindya Ghose, the Heinz Riehl professor of business at New York University (NYU), told Quartz.

First, India continues to be a very important market and Uber’s performance in India has been stronger than ever of late.'"

Really good negotiation is boring to watch, [because] lot of it is dependent on preparation.'"
  • Excerpt from CNBC -- "...Children especially don't have the resources, the capacity, to control themselves in the same way that adults do. Having said that, adults spend four hours a day on screens and that is growing every year. That has grown from three hours two years ago. So I think it is a concern for adults as well, but especially for children who need to be guided by adults."
     
  • Excerpt from NPR -- "'Twenty years from now, I don't think a typical college graduate is going to expect that full-time employment is their path to building a career,' Sundararajan says.

His course was a gamble: three years ago it started with 30 students; this year 100 are enrolled. Next year, between 200 and 300 will take it."
