Professor Langdana and Executive MBA alumnus team up on new book to explain complex forces driving global economy

Monday, September 30, 2013

The dynamics at play in the world economy can be head-spinning.

Tariffs, exchange rates, intra-industry trade are all factors that company executives have to weigh in a business world that is increasingly global and complex.

Rutgers Professor Farrokh Langdana and Peter Murphy, an alumnus of the Rutgers EMBA program and chief executive officer of DC Safety in New York, have produced a textbook intended to help fill what they describe in the book’s introduction as a void of MBA-level teaching material on international trade and global macroeconomic policy.

Implications of Debt Downgrade & Advice Moving Forward

Thursday, August 11, 2011
Newark, NJ

Rutgers Business School's Dr. Farrokh Langdana, professor of finance and economics, gives us his assessment of what's going on and a forecast.

Best to stay with the facts:

·   We now use the not-so-subtle debt downgrade to hit our policymakers over the head with the fact that we have to get the deficits back into the sustainable zone and put our political house in order. So maybe something good will come out of the downgrade.

·   The key issue is whether the downgrade will result in a loss of our Safe Haven status. The answer, for now, is no. Capital still stormed into the relatively safe haven offered by U.S. sovereign debt (Treasury) the day after the downgrade. But this does not mean that we can rest assured that we will remain the safest haven. We now compete for that status with Switzerland and several Asian economies (Singapore, for example) that have experienced sharp spikes in their currencies as capital has flooded in seeking an alternate safe haven to the U.S.

Tuesday, August 9, 2011
Newark, NJ

Businesses aren’t spending for the same reasons families are canceling vacations and delaying the purchase of a new minivan: the future is scary.

"For companies, the outlook has been bleak," said Farrokh Langdana, Rutgers Business School professor of finance and economics. "They’ve been sitting on sacks of money for a while now because there’s uncertainty."

Langdana said companies are unnerved by possible costs of tax changes as well as new regulations that add to expenses. The lack of spending by businesses is in itself a drag on the economy, which poses a chicken and egg paradox, according to experts.
