The Covid relief bill: Better than a spontaneous getaway to Mexico

Yeah, Ted. I know. Mexico is fun as long as you don’t get called home within 24 hours. Granted, I’ve never been to any of those resorts in Cabo or wherever – my spring breaks in undergrad were far more muted – but I’ve been to Mexico City and I’d go back for the tacos alone. Even so, if you told me I could choose between a weekend jaunt to Tulum or the federal government passing a massive relief bill that will change the fabric of this country for the better, I’m going for the latter.

Some of you are definitely thinking I only feel that way because I’m a wonky political nerd who can’t just kick it and have a good time at Senor Frogs.…

Coronavirus and the Market Part IV: Jerome Powell -The Hero We Needed

In the last article from this series in June 2020, I spoke about the impending doom of rising interest rates. I mentioned how this would be precipitated by additional federal government stimulus legislation and the need for the U.S. Treasury to issue more debt to fund so much new federal spending. For once I was right. The yield curve did steepen back in June. Specifically, most of the steepening occurred primarily on the 20-year point due to the new treasury issuance with that same maturity, the rest of the curve was relatively unchanged from the 0-10-year points. As a quick refresher, since the yield curve represents expected future interest rates, it also indicates growth expectations for the general economy. …

A “Zoomside” Chat with Lorenzo Fertitta

Lorenzo Fertitta has done and seen it all. And yet, despite his extraordinary accomplishments, he has remained modest and kind. Not one typically for interviews or being in the spotlight, Mr. Fertitta was willing to be interviewed by The Oppy because of his love and nostalgia for Stern. In fact, he and his brother, Frank, created and funded the Fertitta Veterans Program in 2016 at Stern with a gift of $15 million. It is not often that an MBA student gets to interview a living legend – or a billionaire. While I admit I was nervous at first to interview the Lorenzo Fertitta, he immediately put me at ease.…

March ‘21 Playlist

Happy almost Spring, Sternies. Going on one whole year since coronavirus knocked the earth off its rocker, I thought about turning to one of my simplest and happiest pastimes: discovering new music. I figured that if there’s one thing many people have in common, it’s enjoying listening to music of some sort, whether it’s the backdrop to working out, cooking dinner, dancing, or to fill the endless void that was 2020.…

NYU 2031 – Rethinking the University’s expansion post-Corona

Have you ever been walking around the city and thought “Huh, NYU has a building here?”

It can be tough to miss the 5+ million square feet (roughly six Amazon fulfillment centers) of space that the University occupies in New York. From Brooklyn to 1st Avenue to Abu Dhabi, NYU does not have a single home. For all its sprawl, however, the University unquestionably has its roots in Greenwich Village. Both campus and college-town, the Village is the heart of student activity.

Even as NYU touts a growing global presence, the Washington Square campus remains the University’s top priority for capital improvement.…
