    Excerpt from the Washington Post -- "The idea of a 'red-team blue-team' exercise stems in part from a Wall Street Journal commentary by New York University professor Steven Koonin. E&E News on Friday reported that Pruitt intended to formalize the 'red team, blue team' effort to challenge mainstream climate science."

    Excerpt from Korea Times -- "Low interest rates may make mortgage debts attractive and can fuel a housing boom. Conversely, high housing prices require ever larger mortgage balances, even if the ratio of loan to property value stays constant. So growth in property prices and mortgage debt go hand in hand."

    Excerpt from Bloomberg View -- "Prior to these news stories, Uber was a rule-breaking company with a business model that delivered revenue growth but offered a very narrow path to profitability. After these news stories, the story remains the same but Uber has just made its narrow path even narrower and much rests on who will head the company on this path."

    Excerpt from the San Francisco Chronicle -- "Today, the market is much different, Sundararajan said: 'The excitement around the on-demand economy, coupled with the fact that everyone can be a delivery person because everyone has a smartphone,' changes the economics."
  • Digital Trends logo 192 x 144
    Excerpt from Digital Trends -- "Sure, taking pictures captures the visual details of our memories, but a new study suggests pressing that shutter button improves visual memory. The problem? The improved visual recall is at the expense of auditory memories. The data comes from a new study led by New York University Stern School of Business professor Alixandra Barasch and recently published in Physiological Science."
  • Racked Feature Logo
    Excerpt from Racked-- "Back in April, NYU professor and business intelligence firm L2 founder Scott Galloway told Racked that 'no one looks at Amazon and thinks that it’s a great partner. It’s considered the evil empire.'"
  • le monde logo
    Excerpt from Le Monde -- "Due to the high level of concentration in the United States in the early 2000s, US companies are dominant in their sectors. They are no longer challenged by competition, and therefore have no reason to invest as much as in the past. In other words, in the United States, the concentration of companies penalizes investment."

    Excerpt from Canadian Underwriter -- "'Disruptive innovation is affecting companies of all sizes – reframing opportunities and risk,' Anat Lechner, clinical professor of management and organizations at New York University Stern School of Business, says in the company statement."
  • racked logo
    Excerpt from Racked -- “The bottom line, though, is that guys will always need to buy deodorant. Meyvis questions whether consumers even seriously bought into Axe’s former branding. 'I think that people were buying Axe in the past more because it was a cool brand for young men rather than they really thought "I will become the chick magnet from the advertisement,"' he says. 'If that were the case, of course this would be a bad decision to do this campaign. But the world changes, and what is cool for young men changes, too. To that extent, it may not be as radical a departure from the past positioning: "We’re the cool brand for young men, whatever is happening in the world today."'"

    Excerpt from Bloomberg -- "Miami has the smallest Airbnb-to-hotel price advantage among U.S. cities in the data tallied by Bloomberg. Changes in regulations may contribute to this, according to Arun Sundararajan, a professor at New York University's Leonard N. Stern School of Business and author of The Sharing Economy. The home and apartment-rental company reached an agreement with the local government in March to collect resort taxes on behalf of hosts in Miami-Dade County."

    Excerpt from Luxury Daily -- "'G-Dragon is the most influential cultural icon in Asia today,’ said Thomaï Serdari, Ph.D., founder of PIQLuxury, co-editor of Luxury :History Culture Consumption and adjunct professor of luxury marketing at New York University, New York. ‘His music and fashion style have contributed to an unprecedented increase in followers who also happen to cross two generations: millennials and Generation Z,’ she said. ‘These are young adults who have developed a taste for luxury early in life, have disposable income, primarily due to their families, and have also traveled abroad.’”
     
  • Credit.com logo
    Excerpt from Credit.com -- "Research from NYU professor Priya Raghubir and University of Maryland professor Joydeep Srivastava shows that using physical cash makes people less likely to overspend because they “feel the outflow of money” more directly. Spending too much on a credit card can also lead to high interest charges if you don’t pay the balance in time."
  • yahoo finance logo feature
    Excerpt from Yahoo Finance -- "Speaking about the Z-score, if you compare the average Z-score of companies in 2007 with the average in 2016, which is the last time we looked at it, guess what. The average is actually lower today than it was in 2007, and 2007 was right before the great financial crisis, and of course, in ’08 and ’09 we saw a tremendous increase in corporate bond defaults and loans."
  • business insider logo feature
    Excerpt from Business Insider -- "'A culture of overwork is damaging because it turns brief binges of hard work into a long-term strategy, and, worse still, an expectation. When managers start measuring the worth of their employees according to how quickly they return emails at 3 a.m., that particular work culture is broken,' Adam Alter, a professor at NYU’s Stern School of Business, told Business Insider in an email."
  • bloomberg view logo
    Excerpt from Bloomberg View -- "New York University finance professor Jeffrey Wurgler didn't take things quite that far in a 2011 essay, but he did warn that 'the increasing popularity of index-linked investing may well be reducing its ability to deliver its advertised benefits while at the same time increasing its broader economic costs.'"
  • PFSK logo 192 x 144
    Excerpt from PFSK -- "Think about AI as the next layer of technology that will be integrated into everything we do and much of the technology we use, and that includes mixed reality interfaces and devices. Simply put, AI is a branch of computer science in which computers are programmed to do things that normally require human intelligence. This includes learning, reasoning, problem-solving, understanding language, and perceiving a situation or environment. AI is an extremely large, broad field that uses its own computer languages and even special kids of computer networks, which are modeled on our human brains."
  • quartz logo
    Excerpt from Quartz -- "...in our study, we found that having digital photos was not as effective as physical photos. In fact, the ease of instantaneously sharing digital photos may inhibit how often we talk about our experiences. Back in the old days, we’d wait until we finished a roll of film and then bring it to the store to get printed. So waiting for the pictures kept the experience top of mind. Then, we’d take the pictures around to our friends one by one (or group by group) and get to share our experience over and over again. Now, we simply post it on social media once and we’re done."

    Excerpt from the Financial Times -- "'There is no clear pathway I can see for Uber to go from a high-revenue growth company to a profitable company,' says Aswath Damodaran, a professor of finance at the Stern School of Business. 'Normally the story for start-ups is that as revenues grow economies of scale will kick in, but that story is tough to tell with Uber.'"

    Excerpt from The Australian -- "[Haidt] is a social psychologist and the professor of ethical leadership at New York University. His groundbreaking work, The Righteous Mind, identifies that all of us build our political outlook on six moral foundations."

    Excerpt from MIT Technology Review -- "'Uber could scale back its bet on autonomous cars, and still give a multi-hundred fold return to its early investors,' says Sundararajan."
  • bloomberg logo new
    Excerpt from Bloomberg -- "'The simple, honest truth is, if you’re talking about what the world’s going to be like 10 years from now, it’s hard to know,' he says. 'The best focus for people is to make the transitions as effective and painless as possible as opposed to worrying about what the end point is.'"
  • bloomberg view logo
    Excerpt from Bloomberg View -- "Over the last five years, consumers have been spending more and more time on mobile devices. From 2012-2016, we've come from 10% of our time to nearly 25% on these devices. This is telling companies there is a lot of opportunity for monetization."
  • bloomberg logo new
    Excerpt from Bloomberg -- "I think obviously Trump's election was a signal event, but, that said, companies were starting to sense a more protectionist climate well before Trump's election or even Brexit. I remember Jeff Immelt coming to NYU Stern to do the MBA commencement address in May 2016 and his whole point was the world has turned more protectionistic and therefore, GE was going to localize. So, that's a fairly early but very influential example of how some companies are trying to change their strategy."
  • fashionista logo
    Excerpt from Fashionista -- "'[A product drop] doesn't conform to traditional fashion release timing, so it's unpredictable and, therefore, the products seem scarce,' NYU Stern School of Business Associate Professor of Marketing Adam Alter tells Fashionista. 'Scarcity makes them desirable because they aren't available to just anyone — they're only available to people who happen to be tuned in to the product's release.'"
  • CNBC logo feat
    Excerpt from CNBC -- "... we hope there's some progress here. The fact that America attracts the brightest and hardest-working people in the world is one of the secret ingredients of our success, so I hope the president is listening. ... The men and women in that room are in an impossible position. You want to engage, you want to be seen as contributing to the dialogue, but the bottom line is, anyone who enters a photo shoot with Donald Trump usually leaves with less credibility... "
