The Hill's Congress Blog: "U.S. is losing its intellectual property to international thieves"

The Hill's Congress Blog: "U.S. is losing its intellectual property to international thieves"

The news this week that the U.S. government charged six Chinese nationals with economic espionage is another disturbing example of how vulnerable we are to theft by other nations wanting to steal intellectual property, writes James W. Gabberty, professor of information systems at Pace University in New York City.

Whether it involves copying aircraft designs such as the F-35 Joint Strike Fighter that showed up in China’s J31, or the whitening agent developed and owned by DuPont and used to make white colors brighter in everything from Oreo cookies to BMWs, China has been stealing every bit of western technology it can get its hands on, often with aplomb.

ProPublica: "Cruise Control"

. . . “On an airplane, if one of the restrooms is contaminated and the virus hits days later, the passengers are scattered and no one’s there to connect the dots,” said Andrew O. Coggins Jr., a cruise industry expert and professor of management at Pace University. “On the other hand, on a cruise ship... everyone’s going to be in close proximity and it’s going to be noticeable.”

Barron's: "Retirement Investors’ $500 Million Mistake"

. . . Matthew Morey, a New York Stock Exchange research scholar and professor at Pace University, said that “while some actively managed funds beat their benchmark, they almost never do this consistently — and if they do consistently beat the benchmark this result is very likely due to luck rather than skill. Investors should stick with low cost index funds. Period.”

CNN: "Asian-American groups accuse Harvard of discrimination"

. . . Chunyan Li, an assistant professor of accounting at Pace University who helped recruit groups to join the complaint, said the university's emphasis on race in the application process is unfair.

"This approach is subjective," Li said. "If it is all implemented objectively, then how come all Asians on average have such higher scores? What's the fairness in this? If (Harvard) pushes for (a) holistic approach, then make it fair. If you kept emphasizing race, then there is no way out."

Agence France Presse: "Well-funded Jet.com may be ecommerce game-changer"

Agence France Presse: "Well-funded Jet.com may be ecommerce game-changer"

. . . Larry Chiagouris, a Pace University professor of marketing, said Jet is using the membership model used successful by club stores such as Costco, which could attract customers.

Chiagouris said Amazon "is not universally loved" and that some retail partners are less than satisfied with Amazon's revenue sharing.

"If I were Jet, I would see which companies are not happy, and try to assure them, and bring them in," he said.

Still, Chiagouris said the ultimate goal for Jet may not be to beat Amazon but to join them.

"It is unlikely that it will take much share from Amazon," he said.

"Rather, its strategy seems to be to build up enough business to be able to sell itself to Amazon."

The Hill's Congress Blog: "US must support new entrepreneurial ventures to create jobs and remain competitive"

The United States needs to support new entrepreneurial ventures in order to create jobs, sustain innovation and remain competitive in a global economy, writes Bruce Bachenheimer, Clinical Professor of Management at Pace University's Lubin School of Business and Executive Director of its Entrepreneurship Lab. But lumping small business owners and innovative entrepreneurs in the same category will only serve to mask the problem.

Small business and entrepreneurship is not synonymous. Small businesses are certainly an important part of our economy, but they are quite different than high-growth entrepreneurial start-ups.

. . . “Huffington Post might be spun out for financial reasons, but that would be a mistake, because it is valuable content that Verizon needs to make the deal work,” said Larry Chiagouris, a marketing professor at Pace University’s Lubin School of Business in New York.
