• Excerpt from Harvard Business Review -- "Research by management professors Andrew Hargadon of UC Davis and Beth Bechky of NYU shows that those volunteering ideas in such companies do not mindlessly spit back answers to the questions posed; they respectfully build on the comments and actions of others, considering 'not only the original question but also whether there is a better question to be asked.' As they do this over and over, new solutions emerge."
  • Excerpt from CBC News -- "'It's corporate identity and corporate image,' he said. 'When Dick's Sporting Goods does this, it's very much linked to what their business is about … and a customer base that's more closely aligned with NRA interests.' Whether this represents an inflection point is hard to tell, though Schenkler said the company 'has opened the door' for gun retailers to reconsider their policies."
  • Excerpt from BBC Capital -- "'This is a generation that has actively had entrepreneurial opportunities growing up – in many ways, if you’ve grown up managing your personal brand on Instagram, you’re much better wired to think of yourself as an individual brand instead of a cog in an organisational machine,' says Arun Sundararajan, a business professor at New York University."
  • Excerpt from The Wall Street Journal -- "That shift has stoked subtle stereotypes about older workers’ performance and willingness to learn, which can have tangible effects on their careers, said Michael North, assistant professor of management and organizations at New York University’s Stern School of Business."

    Excerpt from Hitachi Research Institute -- "So, companies should set public targets, incentives to employees tied to targets, reporting and assessment on those targets and training for employees in sustainability.

  • Stamford Advocate 192 x 144
    Excerpt from the Stamford Advocate -- "'The good news for NBC Sports is they beat the competition handily. The bad news is overall ratings are down,' said Sam Craig, director of the entertainment, media and technology program in New York University’s business school. 'But those trends reflect a general decline in TV ratings.'"
  • Excerpt from CNBC -- "'I think of the four big players: Apple, Alphabet, Facebook and Amazon, Apple is the best value play,' [Damodaran] says. 'It is a cash machine. I never seen a company generate as much cash as Apple has over the last six or seven years.'"
  • Excerpt from the Harvard Business Review -- "In the 2016 book The End of Accounting, NYU Stern Professor Baruch Lev claimed that over the last 100 years or so, financial reports have become less useful in capital market decisions. Recent research lets us make an even bolder claim: accounting earnings are practically irrelevant for digital companies. Our current financial accounting model cannot capture the principle value creator for digital companies: increasing return to scale on intangible investments."
  • Excerpt from The New York Times -- "'It’s where you go on vacation, what you do and what technology you have,' said Allen Adamson, one of the founders and managing partners of Metaforce, a brand marketing and consulting firm, and one of the authors of 'Shift Ahead: How The Best Companies Stay Relevant in a Fast Changing World.' Those experiences need to be 'Instagram-worthy,' too. The quirkier, flashier and more offbeat the experience, the better, he said."
  • Excerpt from the Economic Times -- "Ghose says the world needs to recognise the innovativeness of some of the Chinese tech companies and shake off the mental image of Chinese knockoffs.

  • Excerpt from NBC News -- "'The most valuable person in world of consumer business is an 18 year old. They have influence over what the rest of us believe is "cool" and have a lifetime of discretionary spending ahead of them,' Galloway told NBC News. 'Their recent galvanization against the issue has made the NRA very uncool and an easy target for firms wanting to say to the most important cohort "Hey, we get it, and are with you."'"
  • Excerpt from VentureBeat -- "AI is the next era of computing, and it’s important for the business world to understand just how to unlock its potential. In a recent Facebook Live event, I talked with Amy Webb, professor of strategic foresight at NYU Stern School of Business and founder of the Future Today Institute, about how AI is not a silver bullet and how real value comes from a tailored combination of tools designed to address a specific business problem."
  • Excerpt from CNBC -- "..internet service is an interstate service across states and is regulated by the federal government so I don't think the states are going to be successful. What might happen is that congress might pass a rule, a law, that says net neutrality is okay and reverses the present regulation.."
  • Excerpt from WalletHub -- "If someone desperately needs credit, then an unsecured credit card may make sense; but the risks are that he/she will find repayment difficult, and then will face mounting late fees and penalties, which can greatly increase the debt burden. Further, he/she ought to explore other (potentially lower-cost) possibilities, such as borrowing from a credit union -- or even borrowing from friends or family. If he/she does use the credit card, focusing on repayment as soon as possible can help reduce the burden of those fees and penalties."
  • Excerpt from PolitiFact -- "'Data on other states indicate that a majority of individuals in jails (as opposed to prisons) are present due to failure to make bail, and so are awaiting criminal trial prior to sentencing,' said Arpit Gupta, an assistant professor of finance at NYU's Stern School of Business who has researched the bail system and its impact on low-income defendants."
  • Excerpt from CNNMoney -- "Russell Winer, a marketing professor at NYU's Stern School of Business, said low-cost competitors aren't going away anytime soon, but established companies have a key ingredient new ones lack: brand power."
  • Triangle Business Journal logo 192 x 144
    Excerpt from the Triangle Business Journal -- "The share of students strapped with more than $50,000 in student debt has exploded since 2000, according to new research from Adam Looney of The Brookings Institution and Constantine Yannelis of NYU Stern. While there were 5 percent of student borrowers who had more than $50,000 in student debt back in 2000, that share grew to 17 percent of student borrowers by 2014."
  • Excerpt from ABC News Radio -- "'In the case of bitcoin and other digital currencies, you're really relying on the mathematics and probabilities behind them that provide the basis for security that you believe that there won't be too many issued because you can see the equations and the criteria for adding more units of currency,' added Yermack, who also teaches a course on bitcoin and cryptocurrencies."
  • Excerpt from the Economic Times -- "Automation is going to gulp up a lot of the jobs where China, Thailand, Vietnam and Bangladesh have historically relied heavily on certain professions to employ unskilled people. It really depends on the profession and the extent to which supply and demand are collocated."
  • Excerpt from Livemint -- "This is going to be a period of adjustment for everybody. Asset prices that have perhaps been inflated because money was so cheap and so things will have to adjust.

  • Excerpt from BizCommunity -- "'The university will confer an honorary doctorate on Prof Engle in recognition of his pioneering discovery of a method for analysing unpredictable movements in financial market prices and interest rates.

  • Excerpt from CIO -- "The first question for regulators, Dhar says, is do state-of-the-art AI systems — regardless of application domain — result in acceptable error costs? For example, transportation regulators might determine that since autonomous vehicles would save 20,000 lives a year, the technology is worthwhile for society. 'But for insurance markets to emerge, we might need to consider regulation that would cap damages for errors,' he says."
  • Excerpt from Adweek -- "'The NBA and its players are very effective at reaching fans through social media,' said Paul Hardart, marketing professor at the NYU Stern School of Business.

  • Excerpt from The New York Times -- "...when employers want to know how good a worker is, they have several alternatives to considering salary history, many of them more revealing. They can, for example, interview the candidate, read letters of recommendation, and talk to former employers and co-workers. In a recent study, the economists John Horton of New York University and Moshe Barach of Georgetown University conducted an experiment on a prominent online freelancing platform and found that employers responded in precisely this way."
