Washington Times: "For Democrats, Burger King now public enemy No. 1"

Washington Times: "For Democrats, Burger King now public enemy No. 1"

. . . Despite Burger King’s denial that it’s dodging American taxes, and even though it remains to be seen just how much the new corporation will pony up to the U.S. Treasury, specialists say the PR battle with Democrats and negative publicity could affect the company.

“This isn’t like an industrial company that’s faceless to the general public,” said Philip G. Cohen, a professor of legal studies and taxation at Pace University. “There’s a perception that individual taxes will go up to pay for lost corporate taxes caused by inversion. That might cause a public outcry. At the end of the day, that’s what matters.”

E-Commerce Times: "Facebook Trains Sights on Clickbaiters"

. . . Clickbaiting may be irritating to readers, but perhaps the real driver behind Facebook's actions is the potential loss of advertising dollars.

The practice is "a large nuisance for online marketers as it numbs consumers and results in lower click-through rates across the board," Larry Chiagouris, a professor of marketing at Pace University, told the E-Commerce Times. "Any decline in click-through rates has the potential to negatively impact Facebook revenue."

CFO Magazine: "Aversion to Inversions"

CFO Magazine: "Aversion to Inversions"

. . . In the face of inaction on comprehensive reform, and fearing that the Obama administration might crack down on inversions, corporations may be rushing to complete them as a form of “‘self-help’ territorial taxation,” according to Philip Cohen, a tax professor at Pace University’s Lubin School of Business. “Companies are witnessing other companies engaging in transactions that get around [Section 7874 of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986], often by merging with a smaller foreign target, and asking, ‘Why not consider it, given the upside?’” he says.

WCBS-TV: "President Obama Plays Golf After Making Somber Statement On Beheaded American Journalist James Foley"

. . . At Pace University, Political Scientist Christopher Malone said that perception is reality for politicians.

“Something like this sort of reinforces the sense that maybe he is a little aloof, maybe he is a little isolated. I think that sort of narrative really is starting to take a toll six years into his presidency,” Malone said.

Law360: "Lawsky Bares Teeth With Latest Standard Chartered Penalty"

Law360: "Lawsky Bares Teeth With Latest Standard Chartered Penalty"

. . . Lawsky showed he was willing to take a tough line against Standard Chartered, but he could have lashed out with an even harsher penalty, said John Alan James, a professor at Pace University’s Lubin School of Business.

Standard Chartered is among the largest handlers of dollar-clearing transactions in New York, and Lawsky could have rescinded the bank’s license to conduct business in the state if the violations of the original settlement proved sufficiently severe, he said.

But the seriousness of that move may have caused Lawsky to hold at least some of his powder, James said.

“[New York State] will be reluctant to go to this extreme because of the keystone role [Standard Chartered] plays in the [foreign exchange] markets,” he said. “No one in the financial regulatory oversight community would want to deal with the huge mess that a [Standard Chartered] demise would incur.”

E-Commerce Times: "Twitter Experiment Elicits Howls of Disapproval"

E-Commerce Times: "Twitter Experiment Elicits Howls of Disapproval"

. . . For many users, the existing policy already creates a fire hose of information on their Timelines. Now Twitter is proposing to turn that fire hose into a water cannon -- a change those members find very vexing.

"Why do they find this process annoying?" asked Larry Chiagouris, a marketing professor at Pace University. "Because they view their Timeline as almost sacred."

"The Timeline is the way they keep up with people they wish to follow, and they do not want redundant or irrelevant material appearing in their Timeline," he told the E-Commerce Times. "Such material can be distracting and viewed as a waste of time by some of the people on Twitter."
