Will the NFL adopt any of these ideas? Probably not—if Roger Goodell could successfully mimic Adam Silver, he’d have done so already. But should he? Absolutely. Worst case, these proposals make an already weird season a little weirder. Big deal. Best case, some of these new ideas actually work. Not only does the league get to demonstrate its concern for player safety, for social justice, and for innovation, it also forces a relatively stodgy institution to become more adaptable. Yes, the NFL hates change, but like it or not, change is inevitable. If there’s ever a time to get out ahead of the future, it’s now. … [Read more...] about The NFL is dying.

Is all this bad news for Tile and other small companies that already offer gadgets with similar functionality?

We built a second-generation model in 1995 for emerging markets.Fast forward to 2015 and the Italian stock exchange reached out to me to build a model for small companies issuing mini bonds. These are lesser known businesses, and investors were looking for some transparent accurate models to evaluate them. I reached out to my colleague Gabriele Sabato to help me build this model. He was with the Royal Bank of Scotland then and used his free time in the evenings and over weekends to help me in this project. … [Read more...] about Exclusive | India and the world were already overleveraged when COVID-19 hit, hence there will be massive bankruptcies: NYU professor emeritus Edward Altman
