    Excerpt from CNBC -- "During a TED Talk earlier this year, New York University's Stern School of Business marketing professor and psychologist Adam Alter presented research which showed the online tools we spend the most time using don't make us happy. Highlighting data from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, Alter demonstrates how the average 24-hour workday has looked about the same over the past ten years: We sleep between seven and eight hours a day, work between eight and nine hours a day and take care of 'survival activities' like eating and bathing for about three hours a day. The rest of the day — roughly five hours — is our personal time, made up of hobbies, close relationships, creativity and reflecting on whether 'our lives have been meaningful,' Alter says during his TED Talk, which has gotten over a million views."

    Excerpt from the Financial Times -- "Thomas Philippon and Ariell Reshef have shown how closely linked pay has been to deregulation of the sector. The chart shows wages in the finance industry relative to the rest of the US economy, plotted against the two academics’ own “deregulation index”, which is based on legislative activity related to finance."

    Excerpt from the Boston Globe -- "The annual interest rate on a loan funded through the visa program typically runs about 5 percent, say EB-5 financing experts, about half the rate charged by more traditional investment firms. On a five-year, $225 million loan, the difference could easily top $50 million. 'It’s the cheapest source of capital they can find,' Friedland said. 'The reason it’s cheaper is because the immigrant investors are making the loan strictly to qualify for a visa. They’re willing to accept a negligible return."

    Excerpt from Fox Business -- "The market was pleased. The predictions had been for the job growth to be a little smaller. So when the actual exceeds the predictions, the market is going to take that into account and that's all well and good. In addition, we've now been below 5% unemployment for over a year. We're basically back to where we were in 2007. And people forget 2007 was a pretty good year."

    Excerpt from Reuters -- "And don’t believe that the whole economic pie will grow if banks are freed up to make more loans. There is little evidence for that, as economists Stephen Cechetti and Kim Schoenholtz argue. ... They also say Mnuchin's plan would make the financial system less safe. Investors hoping the whole stock market will make them rich if banks lend more should look at how that worked out in 2005-2007."
  • financial post logo feature
    Excerpt from the Financial Post -- "The economists start with two facts. Competition has been declining in many U.S. industries, at least when measured by the number of competitors accounting for a given share of output (which they are quick to concede may not be the very best measure of competition). And investment has been lower than you’d expect, all else equal. In their view, these two trends are linked. Investment and innovation are things companies do when they have to, not when they want to."

    Excerpt from the Australian Financial Review -- "The few hours that remain are our discretionary time, when we might read a book, enjoy a hobby, call an old friend for a talk, play Monopoly with the family or get to the gym. According to Alter's research, our white space is increasingly consumed by computer screens and that's not making us happy."

    Excerpt from CNBC -- "An S-curve like the one Musk has invoked compares what a company gets against the amount of effort or money spent to achieve it. Melissa Schilling, professor of management and organizations at NYU's Stern School of Business, said the curve starts low and slow because 'at first you don't know what the hell you're doing.' Companies experiment with designs, manufacturing methods, cope with failures and learn what works and what doesn't. 'You're pumping a lot of money in, and you're getting very little return,' Schilling said."

    Excerpt from HR Digest -- "According to the Dunning-Kruger effect, smart people realize they’re not very good and try to do better. On the other hand, stupid people think they’re good at whatever it is, and don’t try to get better and they don’t get any better either."

    Excerpt from Bloomberg View -- "Here is Aswath Damodaran on ‘The Crypto Currency Debate: Future of Money or Speculative Hype?’ … What I did not know is that there is a whole literature about analysts getting tired as the day goes on, and it is fascinating. Here for instance is 'Oh What a Beautiful Morning! Diurnal Influences on Executives and Analysts: Evidence from Conference Calls' by Jing Chen, Elizabeth Demers and Baruch Lev..."

    Excerpt from CNBC -- "'The question that you would need to address, if you are paying $2,775 for a bitcoin on August 1, 2017, is whether you can (or even will be able to) buy $2,775 worth of goods and services with that bitcoin,' Damodaran said. He said bitcoin's high price can be justified if the digital currency becomes widely accepted as payment, especially since by design only 21 million bitcoins can ever exist. High demand for a limited supply of coins will naturally send prices higher."
  • cnbc logo feature
    Excerpt from CNBC -- "We've had decreases in some crucial prices. That helps. But [low inflation] is a mystery. Labor costs are remaining low even though labor markets are in pretty good shape. 4.4% unemployment, that's back where we were in 2007. We've been below 5% unemployment now for over a year, and yet, labor costs are not going up, which would be an underlying cause for higher inflation. The Fed doesn't really understand it. Most academics don't understand why labor costs, why wages, aren't going up more rapidly."

    Excerpt from Inc. -- "Ari Ginsberg, a professor of entrepreneurship at New York University's Stern School of Management, characterizes the new proposals as encouraging. In particular, he cites a section of the outline devoted to small and medium-sized enterprises, which calls for the establishment of a special committee 'to ensure that the needs of SMEs are considered' in the broader agreement. 'The signals are much more positive than before for small businesses,' Ginsberg says."

    Excerpt from DNAinfo -- "They modeled what happens to Manhattan’s market with an influx of such investors, finding negative consequences for the welfare of the city when they leave their properties vacant. It forces locals farther out, resulting in longer commutes, which costs time and money, Van Nieuwerburgh said. 'When buying desirable properties in Manhattan, they’re pushing someone else out,' he added."

    Excerpt from WalletHub -- "A card can also be cool because of the issuer/branding. There is a new Marvel credit card. There is a Disney Visa card. There is a Mercedes Benz credit card through American Express.; the list is pretty endless. The key thing about cool is that it depends on the individual's social circle. Airline cards used to be cool, but now they have proliferated."

    Excerpt from The CPA Journal -- "'There’s a very high correlation between a strong ESG performance and strong operational performance, strong stock performance and lower cost of capital,' Whelan claimed, citing a study by the University of Oxford and Arabesque. Examining that phenomenon at the Center for Sustainable Business, she has found that sustainability can drive innovation, risk reduction, operational efficiency, and employee recruitment and engagement. She noted that while much of this is financially intangible, its effects can be felt on the company’s bottom line."

    Excerpt from Travel + Leisure -- "'Consumers do not just focus on individual experiences. Instead, they categorize and manage experiences... For positive experiences, consumers are reluctant to eliminate categories, while the opposite is true for negative experiences because eliminating categories makes it feel like more of the experience has passed,' write authors Anuj K. Shah (University of Chicago Booth School of Business) and Adam L. Alter (New York University)."
  • CNBC logo feat
    Excerpt from CNBC -- "Amazon, right now, I would argue, is the most dominant company in the world and maybe the most dominant company, at this point, that we've ever seen. If you look at the Venn overlap of who they're competing against -- Apple, Facebook, Microsoft -- they're winning wherever they're competing against any of the big tech titans. So this company feels like it has more momentum than any other company I register."

    Excerpt from CNBC -- "Maria Patterson, an assistant clinical professor at NYU's Stern School of Business, considers a political approach an important part of growing a business. 'It's absolutely critical for businesses to make a considered decision of what are our values,' she said. 'Once you determine what your values are in business, then you make decisions of what kind of engagements you'll make in the political arena.'"

    Excerpt from The Island -- "Stephanie Tully, assistant professor of marketing at University of South Carolina Marshall, and Tom Meyvis, marketing professor at the New York University Stern School of Business, conducted two experiments.

    Excerpt from Press Mentor -- "'I think Republicans need to take income inequality more seriously,' said social psychologist Jonathan Haidt, who teaches Ethical Leadership at New York University’s Stern School of Business. It’s 'not because I favor equality of outcomes. I do not. I think the Right is correct to stress merit and earned rewards, not handouts and forced equality. But I think what Republicans are blind to is that power corrupts.'"

    Excerpt from Inc. -- "'If he was stepping down purely because he wanted to go do something else, he would have waited until there was a successor in place,' suggests J.P. Eggers, an associate professor of management at NYU's Stern School of Business. 'The timing seems a little odd,' he added."
