    Excerpt from De Tijd -- "If you can borrow without your own contribution, house prices will rise. You ultimately borrow more with the same income, so homes are still unpredictable for this group. The same is true of the systematic extension of the duration of a Belgian mortgage loan: if the monthly repayment amount decreases, house prices rise. So people always have to borrow more."

    Excerpt from ValueWalk -- "A paper in 2004 by Malcolm Baker and Jeffrey Wurgler examines this question. They ask the following — do companies 'cater' to investor demands for dividends? To test this idea, they examine 4 stock price-based measures of investor demand for dividend payers."

    Excerpt from i24 News -- "What's interesting is that the prediction was that Trump would be disastrous for the market before the elections. And it turned out that Trump was excellent for the market, and when things got a bit shaky for him, the market retreated significantly, and when things looked a bit better, today, the market went up again."

    Excerpt from BusinessZone -- "Entitled Corporate Purpose and Financial Performance, the study monitors the responses of around 500,000 employees from 429 companies in the US over six years, revealing that purpose alone was insufficient to drive higher financial performance, and that it was the perceptions of middle managers that drove the relationship between financial performance and purpose."

    Excerpt from Forbes -- "Luki and Gerrit direct creative teams (clients, students, individuals) in developing Manual Thinking maps during 'non-spoken' work sessions that are democratic, unbiased, and uniquely collaborative. Participants use removable labels to first write ideas, words and images, and later arrange them on large surfaces to create Mind Maps, which can be further adjusted at any time."
  • heartland institute logo 192 x 144
    Excerpt from the Heartland Institute -- "'Many banks and nonbanking financial institutions took too much risk in the years leading up to the financial crisis, and the government felt obliged to save them to protect the broader economy,' Tuckman said. 'The solution, however, is not to reduce the scope and usefulness of bank activities in ways that will not necessarily reduce risks to the financial system.'"

    Excerpt from CNBC -- "'Amazon has algorithms that go out and look for the lowest price per ounce ... then demand that their brands offer that same price or better per ounce in any package or within a nano second, or they will kick you off,' said Galloway."
  • Council on Foreign Relations logo 192 x 144
    Excerpt from Council on Foreign Relations -- "The Dodd-Frank Act grew out of a need to 'address this increasing propensity of the financial sector to put the entire system at risk and eventually to be bailed out at taxpayer expense,' said a 2011 report by New York University’s Stern School of Business. ... 'The Fed has a great deal more responsibility,' says Thomas Cooley, a professor at New York University’s Stern School of Business and one of the editors of the 2011 report. 'It is the primary watchdog for identifying systemically risky institutions of all types,' he explains."

    Excerpt from -- "'The Dow ended up losing something like more than 40% of its value from the peak [from early 1973 to October 1974], which occurred right after Nixon's reelection,' Sylla said. 'This would qualify as a major market down-move.'"
  • bloomberg logo feat
    Excerpt from Bloomberg -- "After years of rising wages eroded its position as the world’s bargain manufacturer, China is striving to build its own brands and improve product quality and design. Those advances are crucial to maintaining the high growth needed to make the leap from middle- to high-income status -- a jump only five economies have managed, including Taiwan, Hong Kong and Singapore, according to Nobel laureate Michael Spence."

    Excerpt from Nikkei Asian Review -- "In an interview with the Nikkei Asian Review in Hong Kong on May 5, Brenner said the perception that the VIX has "predictive power" is something promoted by '[news]letter writers and analysts, people who write to the clients." But for him, "I just use the word nonsense. It doesn't have predictive power.' Brenner was in Hong Kong to commemorate the 10th anniversary of a joint master's program on global finance involving NYU and the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology which he teaches."
  • atlantic logo feature
    Excerpt from The Atlantic -- "Arun Sundararajan, a professor at New York University and the author of The Sharing Economy, notes that these companies might have an edge over automakers when it comes to winning over consumers’ trust. 'Wouldn’t you be more inclined to rely on the software and cybersecurity ingenuity of Google, Uber, Didi, Lyft, Amazon, Apple or Tesla (the exception), rather than trusting the digital capabilities of Ford, Toyota, Daimler or BMW?' he asked rhetorically in a comment shared with reporters."

    Excerpt from The New York Times -- "[President Trump] is thus the all-time record-holder of the Dunning-Kruger effect, the phenomenon in which the incompetent person is too incompetent to understand his own incompetence."

    Excerpt from Crain's New York -- "'Previously these systems had to be programmed, and they did one task and they did what they were programmed to do,' Dhar explained. 'Now you've got machines that are capable of learning on their own. They can learn how to learn, and therefore they can displace humans in pretty large numbers.'"
  • new yorker logo feature
    Excerpt from The New Yorker -- "'Someone who’s hosting on Airbnb might say, "Well, this is my space. I only want a certain kind of guest in my spare bedroom,"' Arun Sundararajan, an N.Y.U. business professor, says. Is that unreasonably discriminatory? In a new book, 'The Sharing Economy,' he proposes a halfway measure like Airbnb’s: self-regulation in collaboration with government."
  • bloomberg view logo
    Excerpt from Bloomberg View -- "Named after psychologists David Dunning and Justin Kruger, the effect describes the way people who are the least competent at a task often rate their skills as exceptionally high because they are too ignorant to know what it would mean to have the skill."
  • new york times logo feature
    Excerpt from The New York Times -- "Data posted by Aswath Damodaran, a New York University finance professor, for example, shows that since 1928, stocks returned about 9.5 percent, annualized, compared with only 4.9 percent for 10-year Treasury bonds and 3.5 percent for three-month Treasury bills. In that horse race, stocks won by a mile. 'Many studies have shown that stocks outperform bonds over all, and I don’t question that data at all,' he said in an interview."
  • financial times logo feature
    Excerpt from the Financial Times -- "Using data from Aswath Damodaran, which covers the full set of listed Japanese companies excluding financials, the EV/EBITDA ratio is about 7.4, compared to more than 12 for the US. (For Western Europe, the figure is about 9.4.)"
  • economist logo feature
    Excerpt from The Economist -- "He helped move economics beyond the narrow ideal of perfect competition by introducing the idea of contestable markets, in which competitive pressure comes from the worry that rivals will swoop in to vie for a market if incumbents are anything other than ruthlessly efficient. Perfectly contestable markets should be just as efficient as perfectly competitive ones, even if only a handful of firms dominate a business. His framework gave economists a way to model what they previously could not: why some industries have lots of firms and others have just a few. Firms should enter the market until all are operating at the most efficient scale (so they cannot cut costs by selling more or fewer units). He was not preaching the Panglossian infallibility of markets. Rather, he helped economists understand why some industries might be more concentrated than others—and when oligopoly is a consequence of corporate chicanery rather than market efficiencies."
  • economist logo feature
    Excerpt from The Economist -- "Investors, whose priority is usually citizenship rather than a financial reward, have shown themselves willing to accept returns of less than 1%. After intermediaries have taken their cut, the cost of capital to developers is typically 4-6%, about two thirds lower than conventional sources of finance for the industry, according to Gary Friedland, a real-estate expert at New York University. Kushner Companies will save $30m-40m by financing 15% of its new property with EB-5 visas, he estimates."
  • new york times logo feature
    Excerpt from The New York Times -- "Professor Baumol, who taught for decades at both Princeton University and New York University, identified what has come to be known as Baumol’s cost disease. This so-called affliction is actually a critically important economic insight that explains why the cost of services, like haircuts and college educations, rises faster than the cost of goods, like T-shirts."

    Excerpt from Luxury Daily -- "'It allows McLaren to gain brand equity through a new channel of communication, namely gaming, an area still out of limits for most luxury brands,' [Serdari] said. 'McLaren is pioneering a bridge between the real and virtual worlds in a way that no other luxury brand has attempted before.'"

  • barrons logo feature
    Excerpt from Barron's -- "In a recent conversation with Barron’s, Lev pointed to one such clue for Amazon: Though it holds fewer patents than Alphabet, its patents are cited more often in filings by others, suggesting they’re more valuable. ... Amazon has changed the relationship between companies and investors by replacing profit with growth and vision, according to a colleague of Lev’s, Scott Galloway, an NYU marketing professor and founder of digital-research platform L2. 'Loss is the new black,' he told attendees at a conference last month, citing the willingness of upstarts like Uber to lose steep and growing sums. 'You can argue this might not end well…but the reality is retail investors love this model.'"
  • new york times logo feature
    Excerpt from The New York Times -- "For the moment, the stock market remains entranced with what Apple is doing financially, and for understandable reasons. Apple may no longer be a great growth company but it is still extraordinary, said Aswath Damodaran, a New York University finance professor, who has analyzed Apple’s earnings closely since 2010. Come what may, he said, Apple churns out staggering quantities of money with metronomic regularity. 'Apple is the greatest corporate cash machine in history,' he said in an interview. 'We should appreciate that amazing achievement. The problem is, it’s not growing much. It’s a slow-growth cash-generating machine.'"
