• 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 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. Now what form that adjustment is going to take—nobody has a crystal ball to be able see but it is going to be a difficult period for everybody in financial markets."
  • 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. This method, employed by private and public sector economic researchers and practitioners operating as financial markets analysts and economic decision-makers, has become indispensable,' said the Executive Dean of the College of Business and Economics (CBE), Prof Daneel van Lill."
  • 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. 'They’ve done a great job with connecting with broader cultural trends, whether it’s with music—Drake and Jay-Z citing the game in their songs—or fashion, to the point where the NBA has become its own fashion brand to some degree.'"
  • 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."

  • Excerpt from MoneyControl -- "Is there any good ideological reason for holding on to nationalised banks? My personal opinion again, probably not. I think one of the things that a nationalised bank has is this implicit safety net that the government is going to bail us out anyway. So somewhere I read recently that of the USD 200 billion of impaired loans in the system is something like a 180 billion are in various public sector banks which makes the recent recapitalisation of USD 32 billion seem like if not a drop in the ocean, at least - inadequate."
  • Excerpt from Mother Jones -- "The credibility boost was similarly strong when subjects were told the ads were not vetted by regulators—which is true. 'We made explicit to half of participants (and repeatedly reminded them) that the Federal Election Commission had not evaluated the content,' Critcher and Jung write. Even subjects who acknowledged that the Stand By Your Ad tagline did not reflect an ad’s truthfulness were significantly influenced, according to the paper."
  • Excerpt from China Daily -- "'Many Chinese consumers have a lot of disposable income and during the New Year there are a lot of parties involving family and friends.

    Excerpt from the CPA Journal -- "What is possible to do is to assess the usefulness of items in the financial report. And the key item is, of course, the bottom line. I did so recently in an article published in Financial Analysts Journal. Basically, what my coauthor Feng Gu and I said was: if earnings indeed reflect value creation by companies, then investing in companies with good earnings should yield very high returns."

  • Excerpt from The Wall Street Journal -- "'A relatively small share of borrowers accounts for the majority of outstanding student-loan dollars, so the outcomes of this small group of individuals has outsized implications for the loan system and for taxpayers,' the authors say."
  • Excerpt from WIRED -- "'The platforms are walking a fine line: Clearly they each want as much time as possible from the drivers, but they also don’t want to step over the line where there’s any indication that this is anything other than an independent contracting relationship,' says Arun Sundararajan, a professor of business at New York University and author of The Sharing Economy. 'There’s also potentially a danger in blocking the app, because both Uber and Lyft have market power now. This is an app in an adjacent space, and it could attract antitrust attention if they blocked it.'"

    Excerpt from Digital Trends -- "'In my opinion, I think these efforts are not going to work out because internet service is considered an interstate service. This is regulated by the FCC,' said Nick Economides of the NYU Stern Business School, who specializes in electronic commerce and public policy and is pro-net neutrality. 'I don’t think the states have jurisdiction. They can try, and then some court is going to say they don’t have jurisdiction.'"
  • Excerpt from Bloomberg -- "'His general view would be, yes, these markets sometimes have sinking spells, there are people who are too enthusiastic or too pessimistic,' Sylla said. 'But most of the time, the markets do a great job of allocating capital.'"
  • Excerpt from MSNBC -- "I actually think the people that work for these firms are decent people. I know a lot of them. I just think a healthy part of the economic cycle is when a few firms aggregate too much power that the market needs to be oxygenated and they need to be broken up."
  • CT post logo 192 x 144
    Excerpt from CT Post -- "Just as it is critical for companies to be able to get out of their comfort zone in order to successfully shift ahead, it is also critical for companies to maintain their authenticity. Martin Crane is who he is -- a straight-talking, retired police detective who just happens to move in with his pompous, smarty-pants son."
  • Excerpt from Fox Business -- "Well I think it's going to be a mixture of they will invest it in new products. They've got a strong tradition of developing new products that delight customers. They will be giving bonuses to a number of their employees and over the longer run it may well trickle into larger dividends but for the moment I think it's investing in the business and in their employees, both are terrifically important. I want to add one thing to what just got said about the tax cut, yes it was overdue but we missed an important opportunity to simplify the tax code to get rid of loopholes, there was precious little reform, way too much cut..."
     
  • Excerpt from BNN -- "One of the things that was also interesting about this group of people is that, first of all, most of them had far less formal education than you would expect for the fields they contributed to. And all of them resisted, in some way, the structure of formal education, but that doesn't mean that education wasn't important to them. What happened was that they consumed education on their own terms. So a lot of them were autodidacts, or self taught, and they read like crazy, and that enabled them to go as deep into a topic or as far abroad topics as they wanted, which turns out to be incredibly important because the curriculum that we might have in school or the pedagogical tools that we are using might be great for some students and might be a shackle for other students."
