    Excerpt from Bloomberg -- "More households have [Amazon] Prime than go to church, voted in the election or have a landline phone. And if trends continue, in about three years more people are going to have a pipe of stuff into their home vis-a-vis Amazon Prime than cable television. So Amazon now has a commercial relationship with the wealthiest households in the world and it's growing faster than any other relationship."

    Excerpt from The Economist -- "Declining competition does more than harm some consumers; it makes firms lazy. The authors calculate that if leading firms had maintained their share of overall investment since 2000, the American economy would have 4% more capital today, an amount roughly equivalent to two years’ investment by non-financial companies."

    Excerpt from Greek Reporter -- "The Greek loan is so small it does not matter that is expensive, but if Greece were to go out in the markets by the end of 2018 paying the same interest of 4.6% it would be completely irresponsible, Economides warns. 'It would not be a way out of the crisis. The Greek debt is completely unsustainable and now we are adding to the debt.'"
  • psychcentral logo feature
    Excerpt from PsychCentral -- "New York University researchers discovered people with higher cognitive abilities are more likely to learn and apply social stereotypes. However, in a series of experiments, investigators discovered that those with elevated intelligence can also easily unlearn stereotypes when presented with new information."
  • financial times logo feature
    Excerpt from the Financial Times -- "An intriguing new blog post by Stephen Cecchetti and Kermit Schoenholtz draws attention to a third trilemma, one concerning international financial policy. The trilemma here is between cross-border financial flows (again), national as opposed to global financial regulation and financial stability."
  • bloomberg logo new
    Excerpt from Bloomberg -- "Seven of the top fastest growing apparel and beauty brands on Amazon are brands you likely haven't heard of before. We no longer need to defer to the large brand, our favorite brand is the brand that Amazon or Trip Advisor or Google tells us is our favorite brand. We used to want Dannon yogurt then we went to Chobani and now it is some Kefir yogurt that we saw Beyonce eating on Instagram. There is growth in the long tail."
  • Benefit News Logo 192 x 144
    Excerpt from Benefit News -- "There’s other research by Lisa Leslie and Colleen Manchester that didn’t look at gender or parental status, but looked at what does your manager assume the reason for your flexible work arrangement is. If the manager believes that you’re working at home for some productivity reason, then that’s viewed positively. If the manager assumes you’re working at home for a family reason, then that’s judged negatively."
  • yahoo finance logo feature
    Excerpt from Yahoo Finance -- "Damodaran, who teaches corporate finance and valuation, says trying to force growth in older companies like IBM could actually have a negative impact on them, because they might end up simply throwing good money away. 'When you’re 75, you’d love to be 35 again, but you’re not going to,' Damodaran said. 'So that’s the way I think of aging companies. Trying to turn them around might be the most dangerous thing you can do.'"
  • washington post logo feature
    Excerpt from The Washington Post -- "In a paper published this week by the National Bureau of Economic Research, they argue that increasing concentration of economic power in the hands of relatively few behemoth corporations -- in some cases to the point where companies enjoy a near monopoly -- could explain the pattern: The big firms, unconcerned about their competitors, simply have no need to invest in staying ahead. 'It explains a big chunk of why investment is low in the U.S. today,' Philippon said."
  • telegraph logo feature
    Excerpt from The Telegraph -- "All those politicians concerned or interested in the subject of executive pay should junk the suggestions of their peers and spend quite some time digesting a comprehensive new academic paper by Alex Edmans, Xavier Gabaix and Dirk Jenter entitled 'Executive Compensation: A Survey of Theory and Evidence'."
     
  • bloomberg logo feat
    Excerpt from Bloomberg -- "Adapting to the bill’s requirements would not 'be a significant issue at all' for the companies, said Arun Sundararajan, a professor at New York University’s Stern School of Business and author of 'The Sharing Economy.'"
  • OZY logo
    Excerpt from OZY -- "'You are likely to see a shakeout in the active management space,' says Vasant Dhar, a professor at New York University’s Stern School of Business, who adds there will 'probably' always be a place for human-managed funds. While machines might take all the remaining jobs in short- and medium-term money management, long-term quality judgments of companies remain a distinctly human quality, he argues."
  • new york times logo feature
    Excerpt from The New York Times -- "Across an entire city, those costs outweigh the benefits of foreign investment, according to two finance professors, Jack Favilukis of the University of British Columbia and Stijn Van Nieuwerburgh of New York University. They modeled what happens when a market like New York City is shocked by an inflow of absentee out-of-town buyers. ... 'And then there are costs that are harder to quantify,' Professor Van Nieuwerburgh said. 'The texture of the city, the socioeconomic makeup of the city, is changing.'"
  • cctv logo
    Excerpt from CCTV -- "The single biggest challenge facing the automakers is perceptions of safety among consumers. There's a very significant behavior change that many auto owners in America will have to go through before they embrace fully autonomous vehicles and understanding what those barriers are and removing those barriers is perhaps the single biggest challenge to automakers. Regulation is another big barrier. I think the number of entities that have jurisdiction over autonomous vehicles is potentially huge and of course the technology, and making sure the technology is ready."
  • cnn logo feature
    Excerpt from CNN -- "Gary Friedland, a scholar in residence at New York University's Stern School of Business who has studied the program, said developers have found ways to manipulate census tract data to place their projects within 'targeted employment areas,' which legally reduces the amount investors must pay -- down from $1 million to $500,000 -- to qualify for EB-5 benefits."
  • Global Trade Review logo 192 x 144
    Excerpt from the Global Trade Review -- "'Multinational firms are the architects of global supply chains. As such they must deal with the shifting economic, technological, political and social forces and pressures operating on their supply chains, employees, customers and regulators. It is not much of an exaggeration to say that their ability to navigate and respond will be one (perhaps the) decisive factor for the future of a reasonably integrated and sustainable global economy,' says Nobel Prize winning economist Michael Spence of New York University, in a note accompanying the report."
  • associated press logo feature
    Excerpt from the Associated Press TV -- "I don't believe this is a left vs. right issue or a Trump vs. Democrats issue. I think that network neutrality benefits not only consumers, but the vast majority of businesses. Net neutrality does not benefit the telecom providers, the cable providers, but it does benefit everybody else in business."
  • CNBC logo feat
    Excerpt from CNBC -- "Helping employees get over financing hurdles for housing would pump relatively 'lazy' capital on corporate balance sheets directly into the economy. Public corporations have trillions in liquid assets, so the scale and impact of providing housing assistance to employees could be significant. In return, it would be beneficial to companies in a couple of ways: 1) The company would get interest on that loan and 2) It would help companies solicit and retain valuable employees. For example, they could offer employees the convenience of living close to work."
  • Axios logo 192 x 144
    Excerpt from Axios -- "Corporate America has become ever more concentrated over the past two decades, and its monopoly power is killing the incentive for large companies to invest in the economy, according to new research from NYU's Stern School of Business. The paper's authors assert a cause-and-effect relationship between a widespread increase in large company monopolies and a decrease in investment in new technologies, plants, and equipment by those same monopoly companies."

  • chicago tribune
    Excerpt from the Chicago Tribune -- "Michael Posner, who served as Assistant Secretary of State for the human rights bureau during the Obama administration, suggested that shuttering the war crimes office did not foreclose the prospect that another State Department agency might carry the torch.'The key is the appointment of strong people and the provision of adequate resources and political support to enable them to do their jobs effectively,' he said. 'Treating human rights and global justice issues as foreign policy priorities advances US interests and values. They are inseparable.'"
  • irish times logo feature
    Excerpt from the Irish Times -- "Ordinary investors didn’t get to buy at $17 during the IPO. Demand meant they opened for trading at $24 and peaked at $29 the following day, a far cry from the $15 level to which they fell last week. It could get worse. Prior to the IPO, this columnist warned Snap’s stratospheric valuation meant it looked a bad bet. Even now, the stock trades on 45 times sales, prompting Prof Scott Galloway from the NYU Stern School of Business to dismiss it as the 'most overvalued company in the world.'"
  • CNBC logo feat
    Excerpt from CNBC -- "Aswath Damodaran predicts digital currencies will eventually be as important as the major paper currencies. He said cryptocurrencies have already replaced gold for younger investors.'All currency is ... based on trust. If you don't trust paper currency, historically what you've done is you dumped paper currencies [and] you bought gold,' he said. 'Cryptocurrencies have taken the role of gold at least for younger investors because they don't trust paper currencies.'"
  • Economy Chosun 192 x 144
    Excerpt from Economy Chosun -- "Unlike China, India is tightly regulated by lending, so it will not be easy to recreate the explosive growth that China has shown in the past. Of course, there are not many bankrupt companies thanks to strict loan regulation. India is expected to record an annual growth rate of 5 ~ 6% annually."
  • forbes logo feature
    Excerpt from Forbes -- "Financial resources are being diverted from needed investments in innovation. A brilliant study by economists from the Stern School of Business and Harvard Business School, compares the investment patterns of public companies and privately-held firms. They found that, keeping company size and industry constant, private US companies invest nearly twice as much as those listed on the stock market: 7% of total assets versus just 4%."
