Baruch in the Media
Baruch faculty and staff continue to be a strong presence in the media. This week, Ned Regan, president of the College, and Burton Rothberg, assistant professor of accounting at Baruch's Zicklin School of Business, co-authored an opinion-editorial in the December 17 issue of The Wall Street Journal, entitled "A Seat at the Corporate Governance Table," focusing on the changes in corporate governance likely to result from new disclosure policies for the massive proxy votes controlled by America's mutual funds (the funds, Regan and Rothberg report, hold more than 15 percent of U.S. stocks). Meanwhile, in one of the unusual studies that have made him famous, professor emeritus and former business school dean John Trinkaus has observed that more than 95 percent of children were "visibly indifferent or hesistant" when approaching a department-store Santa Claus, according to an article in The New York Sun. Only one percent of children appeared to be happy during their Santa session, while another one percent were visibly stricken with terror at the sight of Jolly Saint Nick. The parents however appeared overwhelming delighted. See the Baruch in the Media page.
