Wall Street Journal: "U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara a Hit on Graduation-Speaking Circuit"

Preet Bharara has become well-known in New York for prosecuting the state’s top political players.

This month, the Manhattan U.S. attorney might be better known as the hottest ticket in town when it comes to law-school commencement speakers.

“Preet Bharara makes lawyering seem cool,” said David Yassky, dean of Pace Law School, where Mr. Bharara spoke on Sunday. “The appeal is based on the substance of what he’s accomplished, and his willingness to take on powerful opponents.”

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.”

Connecticut Law Tribune: "Employment Picture Improving for Conn. Law School Grads"

. . . David Yassky, the dean of Pace Law School in Westchester County, New York, said the job market is "coming back strongly" in the region.

"There are fewer people graduating from law school, so it is a good time because the demand is strong," said Yassky, whose school has often had a significant number of Connecticut residents enrolled. "A much bigger part of our graduating class has already secured employment compared to the class of 2014 at this time." At Pace, officials are seeing a lot of demand in the area of real estate and land use, family and matrimonial law, corporate and financial compliance, and intellectual property, according to Yassky.

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 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.
