What’s in a price? When it comes to medicines, the cost could affect your health and well-being, according to Janet Schwartz, assistant professor of marketing at the A. B. Freeman School of Business at Tulane University in New Orleans. A recent study found in the Journal of Consumer Research, “Goods: Changing the price of medicine influences perceived health risk,” by Schwartz and Adriana Samper of the W.P. Carey School of Business at Arizona State University, found that the cost of a medication directly impacts how consumers view their risk of catching an illness associated with the medicine.

From NPR.org, Feb. 6, 2013
NPR’s Shankar Vedantam interviewed Daniel Mochon, assistant professor of marketing, for a Morning Edition segment about Mochon’s research into the so-called Ikea Effect.
“Imagine that, you know, you built a table,” said Daniel Mochon, a Tulane University marketing professor, who has studied the phenomenon. “Maybe it came out a little bit crooked. Probably your wife or your neighbor would see it for what it is, you know? A shoddy piece of workmanship. But to you that table might seem really great, because you’re the one who created it. It’s the fruit of your labor. And that is really the idea behind the Ikea Effect.”

From Bloomberg.com, Nov. 27, 2012:
In New Orleans, an oil-friendly town where Moffett once headed a local business council and gives generously to the Boy Scouts, he is considered something of a folk hero — and Davy Jones really is a celebrity. “In New Orleans, I think everybody with two nickels to rub together owns a little McMoRan” stock, said Peter Ricchiuti, a finance professor at Tulane University who has followed Moffett’s career. “You like the Saints and you got a little McMoRan for your kids.”

From BizEd Magazine, May/June 2012:
Tulane University’s Freeman School of Business in the southern U.S. has created a technologically supported educational model that aims to boost the number of doctorally qualified faculty in Latin America. In this model, Tulane offers a PhD program to Latin American business school professors, which allows them to study in their home countries via weekend and occasional weeklong modular courses. As part of this program, these professors stay at Tulane for parts of four summers to work on their PhD theses with their lead professors. During the school year, Tulane faculty travel to Latin America to teach the program’s courses.

From NPR’s Morning Edition, April 17, 2012:
NPR’s John Ydstie spoke with Peter Ricchiuti, professor of practice and research director of Burkenroad Reports, about the the boom in natural gas production.
Peter Ricchiuti, a professor at Tulane University in New Orleans and an expert on oil and gas production, says the normal supply-and-demand laws of economics aren’t working as they used to in the industry.
“Historically, this has always been kind of a self-governing mechanism,” Ricchiuti says. “When natural gas prices got too low, you’d start to see the industry lay down rigs until prices went back up again, and it was very effective. It was sometimes jokingly referred to as the ‘Redneck OPEC.’ ”

The new dean of Tulane University’s Business School, Ira Solomon, said the plan which could be voted on tonight by the Congress is a drop in the bucket.
“The federal government borrows in the neighborhood of $4 billion dollars a day, $4 billion a day in spending of monies we have to acquire from someone else,” said Solomon.

From The Times-Picayune, June 13, 2011:
The newly named dean of the A.B. Freeman School of Business at Tulane University has been on the job less than two weeks and as of Thursday was still living out of a hotel, but already has begun in earnest an effort to create a school that will endow students with a system of values just as it imparts them with business education and skills. Doing so, Solomon believes, will create business leaders who are able to communicate effectively, think critically and avoid unethical behavior.

With so much hand-wringing going on, MarketBeat dropped a line to Peter Ricchiuti, a professor at Tulane University’s A.B. Freeman School of Business who has been tracking and trading small-cap companies for the past two decades. Are even some of small-cap’s biggest long-term boosters starting to get a bit hot under the collar? Uh, yes.
“I don’t know if it can continue,” Ricchiuti says, ticking off a list of worries. “The gap between pricing on large- and small-caps is, historically, very high. Another negative is that small caps tend to outperform large caps in the early stages of a recovery, and we’re starting to get some traction in the economy. That doesn’t bode well either.”
