  • Ticket News logo 192 x 144
    Excerpt from Ticket News -- "...Professor Seamans points out that 'making resale more difficult for the public can net a negative effect because the market will always do better when search is more accessible'. No matter the prices, a search engine inquiry that returns only one website off of which a consumer can actually purchase what they’re looking for is not good business for the consumer, the venue, the artist or team and their promoter, or really anyone else involved. In short, he states that 'in general, consumers are better off when the secondary market is active'."

While Haidt is a centrist who has never voted for a Republican, he is disturbed by the culling of conservative voices on campuses."

    Excerpt from the New York Daily News -- "Dozens of studies conducted and inspired by psychologists David Dunning and Justin Kruger show that poor performers are especially prone to delusions: They overestimate their talents, including logical reasoning, grammar, humor, debating, interviewing, management and emotional skills. The weaker their skills, including interpersonal skills, the more that people exaggerate them in their own minds."

Scott Galloway, an NYU professor of marketing who has written a forthcoming book on Amazon called 'THE FOUR: The Hidden DNA of Amazon, Apple, Facebook and Google,' both believe that Amazon already has its sight set on one — or a few — HQ2 sites.

    Excerpt from NPR -- "When you have what is arguably the most successful company of the last decade weaponized to undermine our democracy, it rattles our cages and it should. ...

  • poets and quants logo
    Excerpt from Poets & Quants -- "When teaching Microeconomics to 300 Stern undergraduates, Bowmaker is known to takes the time to learn every single student’s name so that he can get everyone’s contributions during class. When researching economics, he’s not merely fascinated by the application of it, he’s equally passionate about the working lives of other professionals in the field. This is evidenced by two of his published books, The Heart of Teaching Economics: Lessons from Leading Minds and The Art and Practice of Economics Research: Lessons from Leading Minds, which feature one-to-one interviews with some of the top economists in Europe and in the United States."

  • wallethub logo
    Excerpt from WalletHub -- "If someone is agnostic about where to travel -- say she simply wants to visit Italy, broadly defined -- I think a good piece of advice is to travel to "second" cities that are less crowded and more reasonably priced. For example, rather than visiting Rome or Florence, go to Parma or Bologna. If someone must see Rome or Florence, and has a tight budget, I would plan on traveling off-season, right before or after the core tourist season, and look for travel, lodging, and entertainment coupons and deals."
  • Fit Small Business logo 192 x 144
    Excerpt from Fit Small Business -- "Cryptocurrency is treated as property for tax purposes. If you don’t convert it immediately to cash, you may have a capital gain or loss in the future when you eventually sell the currency. There is also the need to convert crypto into real currency for accounting and financial reporting purposes. For example, to report revenue, the crypto is required to be in your base currency, which is different from a company that has revenue in both dollars and euros but simply reports everything in dollars."

'You see people thinking they’re going to make a profit and flip this to someone more gullible next week. It’s what we in finance call the greater fool theory.'"

    Excerpt from Xinhua -- "'We're awaiting the Trump administration's tax policy proposals, if what we hear is correct, we anticipate that they will propose to reduce the corporate tax down to about 20 or 25 percent,' Robert Salomon, associate professor at the Stern School of Business, New York University, told Xinhua in a recent interview. 'They will also attempt to reduce the individual income tax rates down to about the highest rate of 35 percent more or less,' he said."
  • xinhua logo feature
    Excerpt from Xinhua -- "'There are probably a number of big reasons for this,' [Eggers] explained. Pop-up stores have been attractive because of lower cost of renting real estate, lack of demand for other types of stores, and entrepreneurs who want to try out their concept and get a chance to see how the public reacts to it in different ways."

  • yahoo finance logo feature
    Excerpt from Yahoo Finance -- "I think a big part of the competition for the next digital device is going to be those connections they make to physical, real-world retail, getting the stuff that you want. And while Apple is a leader in digital commerce -- they've got the music, they've got iTunes -- they're still lagging behind in preparing for a reality where these mobile devices, they're not just the thing you show off to your friend or the thing you use to manage your digital life, they are the things that we use to interact with the physical world."
