• Excerpt from The Washington Post -- "Part of the solution is to ditch references to 'fake news' and focus instead on politically motivated disinformation. The latter gives the appearance of being factual but actually promotes deliberate, manipulative falsehoods aimed at promoting a political agenda and undermining our democratic system."
  • Excerpt from The New York Times -- "More recently, I was really struck by Jonathan Haidt’s 'The Righteous Mind: Why Good People Are Divided by Politics and Religion.'"
  • Excerpt from the Financial Times -- "In the 1980s, Menachem Brenner and Dan Galai published a series of papers that created an actual index of stock-market volatility based on options, which they called 'Sigma'. They pitched the idea to various exchanges but at the time no one wanted to turn it into a live volatility benchmark."

    Excerpt from Real Vision -- "Morgan had all these bright young partners and he sent them out to inspect the books of all the trust companies that were suffering from these runs and what he wanted to do was find out which of them were sound and which were not sound and then once he knew which ones were sound, he would organize the resources to relieve them and let the unsound ones fail and that would presumably bring an end to the crisis, so that was the first step..."
  • CityLimits logo 192 x 144
    Excerpt from CityLimits -- "North says, 'Where the tension exists is when these older adults are portrayed as not wanting to step aside and make way for the younger generation.' He asks, 'Who’s to be the judge, basically, of when it’s time for an older worker to step aside or not?'"
  • Excerpt from Forbes -- "It never crossed my mind that I gravitated to startups because I thought more of my abilities than the value a large company would put on them. At least not consciously. But that’s the conclusion of a provocative research paper, Asymmetric Information and Entrepreneurship, that explains a new theory of why some people choose to be entrepreneurs. The authors’ conclusion -- Entrepreneurs think they are better than their resumes show and realize they can make more money by going it alone. And in most cases, they are right."
  • Excerpt from Business Insider -- "'[Reference points] are used on price tags. These are used in advertising. This is used inside retail stores on signage. All of which are ways to try and get you to anchor on a particular price, so it is against that price that you would then evaluate the current offering,' Priya Raghubir, a marketing professor at New York University Stern School of Business, told Business Insider."
  • Excerpt from Quartz -- "'I think this move to hire a country head is also a very credible signal to Indian payment system firms, notably Paytm, to ramp up their battle plans,' said Anindya Ghose, the Heinz Riehl professor of business at New York University’s Stern school. 'It will make the mobile payments market in India a lot more colorful!'"
  • Excerpt from The Independent -- "She told The Independent that while Mr Zuckerberg may be taking lessons on how to appear to appear contrite and charming, the company’s main concern now was to get ahead of the curve for anticipating and actually writing government regulations for the industry. 'The thing that matters most to Facebook is that it wants to write the regulation and compliance going forward,' she said."
  • 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 Bloomberg -- "The... optimists say that Trump is just trying to increase his bargaining power and is using these threats as a way of opening up China. I have a slightly more pessimistic view because the economic nationalists are in and those who are internationalist are out [of the Trump administration]."
  • Campden FB logo 192 x 144
    Excerpt from Campden FB -- "For family offices that are a number of generations removed from the founder, the importance is to have a board or investment committee that can review the actions of the family office investment staff over time to ensure there is continuous adaption relative to the office’s long-term objectives."
  • 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. The paper argues that online platforms, especially peer-to-peer ones like Uber and Airbnb, are highly susceptible to ratings inflation because, well, it’s uncomfortable for one person to leave another a bad review."
  • Excerpt from InvestorPlace -- “Users will increasingly message because of the presence of payments on the same platform, and they will increasingly use payments because of the presence of messaging on the same platform.”
  • 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. 'The place to go gangster on these guys is through red state [attorneys general]. That’s what he should have done.'"
  • 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."
  • Excerpt from TIME -- "...according to Rob Salomon, associate professor of international management at the NYU Stern School of Business, trade deficits may actually help the U.S. by flowing dollars back into the economy and keeping American interest rates low. 'This makes mortgages less expensive, this makes business loans less expensive, and this makes capital to start businesses less expensive,' he says."
  • Excerpt from Newsweek -- "'Facebook has appropriately banned the IRA from its platforms,' said Michael Posner, director of the NYU Stern Center for Business and Human Rights. '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".'"
  • Excerpt from CBS News -- "Dhar said companies need to start being proactive and treat customer data as first class. 'This is a CEO-level issue. It isn’t something that you slough off to your tech person and say, "hey, prevent these things from happening,"' he said."
  • Excerpt from MIT Technology Review -- "Research points to where the field is headed. 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."
